The two-minute trailer brings new footage of Black Widow, Iron Man, Captain America and Thor while fans wait patiently for movie to hit the big screen in the coming months.

The two-minute trailer follows the team as they pull together in an effort to put aside their differences for the sake of one major mission: saving the world from disaster.

It’s the story of Nick Fury, director of the peacekeeping organization S.H.I.E.L.D., who recruits Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America to save the world from destruction.

The film follows the gang of superheros as they attempt to save the world when an enemy emerges and threatens global safety and security. “It’s called the Avengers initiative,” says Samuel Jackson who plays Nick Fury.

In another scene Mark Ruffalo’s character Bruce Banner questions the team’s success, saying, “We’re not a team, we’re a time bomb” as Scarlett Johansson’s character Black Widow adds, “This is nothing we were trained for,” in another scene.

As we’ve previously reported, according to the L.A. Times, the new film is directed by Joss Whedon of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and stars Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury, Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye.
