It's Iron Man vs. Thor and Loki vs. Fury in 2 new Avengers clips

Two new clips from Marvel's The Avengers have been released, showing an intense face-off between Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston), plus an awesome showdown between Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth).

What do we learn? Fury can go toe to toe with a god and still sneak in a bit of snark for good measure. As for Iron Man vs. Thor? It seems Thor might be stronger, but the Iron Man armor still has a few tricks up its sleeve.

The fight footage is epic and seems like a pretty good representation of how a Norse god and a power-suited playboy would match up.

The Fury clip appears to be a longer look at the scene cut into the trailers with Loki asking how desperate the world must be to assemble the motley crew of Avengers. The dialogue is perfect, and it definitely has that pinch of Joss Whedon flair.

The Avengers stars Jackson, Hiddleston, Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner. The film is set to open May 4.

Check out the clips below.
