Thor brings down the lightning in electrifying new Avengers footage

There's a new Avengers extended TV spot (they're now coming out at a dizzying pace) that has our favorite blond God of Thunder ever—the Mighty Thor—take the spotlight. And we can safely say that Thor does bring a whole lotta thunder and lightning in this action-packed, electrifying clip.

Of course, the rest of the Avengers team also assemble for this new thrilling spot in order to kick Loki's (Tom Hiddleston) butt—not wanting to let Thor (Chris Hemsworth) have all the crazy fun.

So everybody's there: Captain America (Chris Evans), Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) and Col. Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).

Have a look:

With the super positive buzz that's now trickling online, following a recent press screening, it looks like director Joss Whedon's The Avengers will be THE epic movie to see come this summer. (But we never doubted that.)

So what do you guys think of the TV spot?
