Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark comes face-to-face with Tom Hiddleston’s evil god Loki to let him know just what he’s up against in a new teaser clip for The Avengers.”

Stark casually pours himself a drink in his expansive penthouse apartment overlooking the art deco Chrysler Building and lays it on the line for the prince of darkness.

“If we can’t protect the Earth, you can be damn well sure we’ll avenge it,” the suave Stark says.

In a little game of one-upmanship, Loki asks, “What have I to fear?”

“The Avengers. That’s what we call ourselves, sort of like a team,” Tony replies. “Earth’s mightiest heroes type thing.”

Stark runs down the list of superheroes who stand in the way of Loki’s plans to take over the earth. It’s a pretty impressive list.

The film will feature Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Iron Man (Downey Jr.), The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).

“You, big fella’ managed to piss off every one of them,” Stark notes

“That was the plan,” Loki responds.

“Not a great plan,” Stark counters.

“The Avengers,” directed by Joss Whedon, hits theaters on May 4, after screening at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, Apr. 28.
