Iron Man and Thor Face Off in New 'Avengers' Clip

Marvel Studios
It looks like The Avengers will include that time-honored comic book tradition of having the heroes battle each other before realizing they're on the same side. Not that I'm complaining. That's always been one of my favorite gimmicks that superhero comics use to grab our attention. Marvel was especially adept at pitting their most popular characters against each other for epic battles. Often they were under some sort of weird mind control by a villain or one of them turned out to be an imposter trying to lure the other into a fight for some nefarious reason. I don't know if one of those scenarios is the backstory of the latest clip from The Avengers, but I can't wait to find out.

Check out the clip below showing Iron Man and Thor in an old-fashioned throwdown and start laying your bets on who'll be the last hero standing. I'm not saying Iron Man has met his match, but you might see Tony Stark actually have a rare look of panic on his face. As my friends across the pond might say, Tony appears to be in a "spot of bother".

The Avengers opens April 27 in the UK and May 4 in the USA.
