Avengers Preview #2 Shows More Team Angst

If you haven't seen the newest trailer from marvel, check this out and hit the jump for more info:

From the looks of things, it seems like director Joss Weedon is using the Ultimates storyline, focusing on an invasion led by Loki. While we can play guess on which enemies Loki is employing (word on the street points to the Skrull and Frost Giants), there is one thing we can acknowledge: the Avengers don't seem to like each other early on and there's concern about the team's short fuses causing further problems. That's an angle frequently used in both the comics and in other animated series like Justice League and Avengers EMH. There's a lot of doubt thrown in through the preview, with Black Widow questioning whether her and Hawkeye's training will be enough to save the day. Banner's line of a 'ticking time bomb' is pretty epic as well.  I sure hope this angle is exploited, as well as Widow's impending betrayal of the team. We'll have to wait to see how it all turns out, but for now it's all systems go! Awesome preview!
