More Spoilers From THE AVENGERS' Fan Screenings!

Even more tantalising details from THE AVENGERS' fan screenings have found their way online, including a great description of the Black Widow/Loki interrogation scene. As before, be warned because this article contains MAJOR SPOILERS from the movie.

Follow JeremyBrown:
By JeremyBrown - 4/15/2012


  • The rumored "huge opening scene" of the movie is Loki making a deal with an alien (later revealed to be Thanos' associate) on the outskirts of the Nine Realms. Loki is given the Chitauri army in promise that he will obtain the Tesseract (Cosmic Cube) for them.

  • During the Hulk vs Thor fight, Hulk tries to lift Mjolnir but fails.

  • Tony Stark at one point refers to Hawkeye humorously as "Legolas".

  • Captain America does not utter the iconic words, "Avengers Assemble".

  • Hawkeye is under mind control for roughly half of the movie.

  • It is revealed that Bruce Banner tried to commit suicide. He remarks that he "put the gun in his mouth and pulled the trigger but the 'Other guy' spat it out".

  • Loki is brutal in the film (supposedly more so than Joker in TDK). At one point Hawkeye (still under mind-control) needs the scan of a man's eye, so Loki goes to Germany and promptly butchers him.

  • Asgard doesn't have monkeys...

  • Stark and Banner leave together in his Acura at the end of the movie (possibly implying the presence of Banner in IM3).

  • War Machine's absence is not explained, although Jane Foster's is (she's apparently under special protection in case Loki went after her).

  • Black Widow is indeed (or rather; was) Russian.

  • Hulk gives Loki an absolute thrashing, and promptly refers to him as a "puny god".

Also, lastly, a great scene description of the chilling Black Widow/Loki interrogation (many thanks to @flickchick85 for this):

"Basically she comes to Loki in the cell to bargain for Barton's life. Or so it seems. He tells her he expected her to show up as the "friendly method of persuasion" after Fury and Co. tortured him a bit, not so soon. He inquires about her interest in Barton, asking if it's love. She says, "love is for children. I owe him a debt." Then she tells him her backstory with Barton from back when she was an assassin. She says she's got some "red on her ledger" that she's trying trying to make right.

During her whole story, Loki acts sympathetic and then totally flips, listing all her past victims he shouldn't know about (but learned of from Barton) then telling (more like yelling at) her exactly the horrible death he has in store for her and Barton. She breaks down and calls him a monster and turns away. Then he says something about the Hulk being the monster they were foolish enough to bring on board, and then she turns around... She was faking the breakdown. She says, "So Banner's the reason you're here? Good to know. Thanks." Or something to that effect, then leaves."

Asgard doesn't have monkeys....

...........say what?

Loki is very brutal in this film, but nowhere near as brutal as Ledger was in TDK.
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 4/15/2012, 3:01 PM
Loki was fantastic in this movie. Hiddleston steals the show, he's not on dimensional or overly cliche. Not as good as Ledgers joker, more on par with Magneto from the Singer X-Men movies.
DaenerysTargaryen - 4/15/2012, 3:02 PM
Team Loki? Ehh...I dont know now
antonio - 4/15/2012, 3:07 PM
@Jeremy he is flat out terrifying in some scenes yes. Just not on the level of Heath in TDK. His performance was my #2 favorite comic book movie performance by a villain, behind Heath Ledger. But Hidddles is far, far, far, far, far, far, far, far, far, far, far from reaching Ledger's peroformance.

#performance

Another thing, I think Poni_boy on SHH said that offical reviews should be going out tomorrow.
comicbookjerk - 4/15/2012, 3:25 PM
I was at the Chicago Screening Saturday and I'm not saying a word about the film...I did however get interviewed after the film by Marvel that was really cool!

It is revealed that Bruce Banner tried to commit suicide. He remarks that he "put the gun in his mouth and pulled the trigger but the 'Other guy' spat it out".

sounds abit like this scene.

DoomXfactor - 4/15/2012, 4:00 PM
I saw it and loved it. They need to give Hiddleston a raise!!!!
GeneralZod1138 - 4/15/2012, 4:04 PM
Does Cap ever lift Thors hammer?
BatSlam - 4/15/2012, 4:43 PM
i haven't seen the movie yet but i am guessing the monkey comment is because thor sees a monkey and has to clue wat the hell it is. maybe even tries to converse with it or something.
GeneralZod1138 - 4/15/2012, 5:56 PM
Ha @teabag!

Why am I not surprised?
AlSimmons - 4/15/2012, 6:08 PM
In the Peter David novelization of the Incredible Hulk movie, Bruce actually puts the gun to his head, but his hand(just his hand) hulks out and crushes the gun.
Gerrit - 4/15/2012, 6:46 PM
WTF? Can someone clarify that deal between Loki and the "alien"? Why would Loki just give away such a powerfull weapon like the cosmic cube?
BANE5000 - 4/15/2012, 6:49 PM
So at no point does Cap yell Avengers Assemble...well thats a downer for me :-/
Coloso - 4/15/2012, 7:37 PM
^^^ with a name like bane i'm sure you'll find many more 'downers' ;)
BANE5000 - 4/15/2012, 8:23 PM
Coloso

Just was hoping to hear Cap shout that out during the battle scene, but i guess thats another thing they either cut out, thought it wasnt needed or saving for the sequel...but c'mon, thats the Avengers calling card, it shouldve been in the film.
OhGawDuhhh - 4/15/2012, 8:55 PM
So in the UK, the film is titled AVENGERS ASSEMBLE but Cap doesn't shout out the famous calling cry that the MOVIE'S TITLE IS NAMED AFTER!?

Hmm.
thalidomide - 4/16/2012, 5:47 AM
There's always a comparison betwwen The Avengers and The Almighty "The Dark Knight" smh
Lilvic92 - 4/16/2012, 7:25 AM
Tom Hiddleston's Loki > Heath Ledger's Joker
theguy924 - 4/16/2012, 11:51 AM
Does Iron Man use the Unibeam at anytime during the movie?
WingPow - 4/16/2012, 6:39 PM
Does cap lift Thors hammer at all in the movie? That would be so epic.
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 4/16/2012, 7:42 PM
monkeyballs3 No it wouldn't, Spidey said Friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, and it fit, Cap lifting his shield high in the air and yelling, "Avengers, Assemble" would be sick! Well at least Cap is the technical leader in the film giving orders and what not, I'm so excited!!
SunOfKunLun - 4/17/2012, 10:50 AM
"Asgard doesn't have monkeys" I hope this is Thor's reference to the Hulk.
Valdier1327 - 5/6/2012, 8:50 PM
In regards to the "Monkey" inquiries: **SPOILERS** Tony Stark makes a reference to monkeys, Thor questions him with a quizzical look over his face, then Cap jumps in and says something to the point of "I know that one. . [everyone looks at him]. . I'm just saying I understood that reference"
