Finally. After a countless number of standing-around-and-posing clips and stills from "The Avengers," a scene of actual action has emerged and...really?

Listen, we realize this is just a thirty second snippet and that the general reaction from the (invited fanboys at the) premiere earlier this week was through-the-roof ecstatic, but man, this is pretty cornball. With some triumphant, emotional (?) music swelling, Captain America and Thor team up in the same Manhattan street we've seen for the past seven months (does the whole movie take place there?) facing off against some pretty generic-looking aliens (they look exactly like the things from "Battleship"). Anyway, Thor is all like "Bro, we gotta get these dudes." And then Captain America is all like, "Totally bro." A car gets tossed but oh no Captain America gets totes tased in the tummy. Thor is all like "Bro, you good guy?" And then Captain America is like, "Bro I'm good, let's get some wings."

Yeah, let's hope this isn't the tone of the movie. "The Avengers" assemble on May 4th. [DigitalSpy]
