Hey Avengers fans, I'm Tatiana Carrier and I've got some major spoilers from the upcoming film thanks to Comic Book Movie. The site got their hands on a copy of the film's Movie Storybook and along with some cool new photos, there's also some major plot points revealed. So, if you don't want to know anything about the film before heading to the theaters May 4th, check out one of our other awesome videos instead.
Okay, are they gone? Good. Let's take a look at what we've found out. Most of what we learn from the storybook helps to give context to some of the images we saw in the latest trailer. If you caught the easter egg at the end of Thor, you know that Dr. Erik Selvig is seen meeting with Nick Fury about the "Tesseract" also known as the all-powerful Cosmic Cube. We know from the trailers that Hawkeye battles Black Widow and we learn from the storybook that Loki uses his brainwashing power on Hawkeye to steal the Cosmic Cube.
We also learn that Loki's theft of the Cosmic Cube happens early on in the film and is the catalyst that allows Nick Fury and his team to recruit Bruce Banner, Iron Man and Captain America to The Avengers. Most importantly, they need Bruce Banner in order to find the Cosmic Cube, because it's emitting gamma radiation and we all know gamma radiation is the Hulk's specialty.
Banner is able to track down Loki in Germany where he's testing out his new powers by making a crowd of people kneel. Captain America and Iron Man show up and Loki surrenders. While taking him back to S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters on the Quinjet, Thor shows up and frees Loki in order to take him back to Asgard. Loki tells Thor he has no interest in returning to Asgard and his goal is to rule over Midgard, aka Earth. Thor is attacked by Iron Man, but Thor uses his hammer to hit Iron Man with lightning, which increases Iron Man's suit's power and he takes Thor down. Thor is about to attack Iron Man again, but Captain America swoops in from above having jumped from the Quinjet with a parachute. They ultimately decide to stop fighting and take Loki back to S.H.I.E.L.D.
Loki is now locked up in the glass cage meant for Hulk, which Loki points out to Banner. That's where the storybook ends, but we get a sense that Loki will use Hulk to escape his imprisonment. Still no answer to who Loki's Army is, but it definitely gave us some context to some of the scenes we saw in the trailer. What do you think of the story so far?
