THE AVENGERS Clip: Loki for President

Tom Hiddleston Loki The Avengers
Tom Hiddleston as Loki, The Avengers

Joss Whedon's The Avengers, whose trailers make it look like Michael Bay's Transformers movies — but with even more juvenile humor — has an earth-shattering 96 percent approval rating among Rotten Tomatoes' critics. For comparison's sake, this year's Best Picture Oscar winner, Michel Hazanavicius' The Artist, has a 98 percent approval rating. (Well, okay, with many more votes tallied.)

So, here's wondering if Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises will be as well received as The Avengers, despite a lack of Michael Bayish explosions and bad jokes. Heck, if the critical love keeps up, here's wondering if The Avengers will be shortlisted among the year's Best Picture Oscar nominees next awards season.

Either way, check out a The Avengers clip below featuring Tom Hiddleston's Loki and Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury debating on the meaning of power and desperation. How can one not root for Loki to come out on top? And how can one not crack up when Nick Fury indignantly tells The Mad Asgardian, "You threatened my world with war."

Doesn't Nick Fury have access to world news? And how about Tom Hiddleston for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar? Please scroll down.

The Avengers opens May 4. In addition to War Horse's Hiddleston and Pulp Fiction's Jackson, The Avengers features The Iceman / Captain America: The First Avenger's Chris Evans as the red-white-and-blue Captain, Due Date / Sherlock Holmes' Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man, The Kids Are All Right / Shutter Island's Mark Ruffalo as the Incredible Hulk, Contagion / Shakespeare in Love's Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, and Snow White and the Huntsman / The Cabin in the Woods' Chris Hemsworth as Thor.

Also: He's Just Not That into You / Match Point's Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow, The Bourne Legacy / The Town's Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Melancholia / Mamma Mia!'s Stellan Skarsgård, Pulp Fiction's Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Grassroots / The Storm Awaits' Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, Walkabout / Logan's Run's Jenny Agutter, and the voices of Paul Bettany and Lou Ferrigno.
