The Avengers - Extended Super Bowl TV Spot

ZOMFG!!!!  I saw the TV spot during the game, but now Marvel has released an extended cut of the spot.  Hit the jump to catch it out in all of it's 1-minute-5-seconds of 1080p glory.

I've been looking forward to this movie for a long, long time, and this spot has me drooling.  Look closely and you'll notice we get our first look at "Loki's Army".  The most prevalent rumor on the interwebz is that it's the Skrulls, despite Marvel's outright denial of their inclusion in this story.  Based on this brief glimpse, it's tough to call.  Those could totally be movie-verse Skrulls.  Or they could be something else entirely.  Seeing as how these movies have drawn a strong influence from the "Ultimates" universe, if I were a betting man, I'd say maybe Marvel is being ultra-literal in their denial, and these guys are actually the Chitauri, the Ultimate universe' counterpart to the Skrulls of Marvel-616.

Either way, I can't wait for May to get here.

Oh, and I'm stoked for the action figures, too.  But mostly the movie.
