"I have an army." "We have a Hulk." And we just had a geekgasm. We've got the exclusive debut on a brand new "Avengers" clip featuring Tony Stark exchanging zingers with Loki, the God of Mischief. It's light on the action, but heavy on the awesome. Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Hiddleston are in top form in the scene, and we're dying to see more from the two of them. You'll be dying too once you've watched the clip. Stop dilly-dallying and get to it by clicking on the player below!
You guys know Walter, right? He's the very manly Muppet who just starred in — you guessed it — "The Muppets" late last year alongside Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy. Although the whistling Walter is an official member of the Muppets gang now, shaking off your uber-fandom isn't something that happens overnight. It takes a good little while to accept one's place in the big leagues, though we'll say, Walter is doing a heck of a job at that.
Still, the little guy has enough time on his hands to indulge his inner-Muppets fandom on more than a few occasions. Case in point: this MTV Movies exclusive "Muppets" infographic, cooked up by Walter himself! His years of fandom and expertise are on full display here: he's kept tabs on all of Gonzo the Great's fantastic stunt work (and resulting damage), the results of Dr. Bunsen Honeydew's weirdest experiments, the various tools in Swedish Chef's kitchen, and more. Pretty impressive stuff!

Skyrockets in flight! "Anchorman" delight!
That's right — after years and years and oh so many painful years of waiting, the news team is finally ready to assemble again. Paramount Pictures and Will Ferrell have announced that "Anchorman 2" is officially happening, with most of the film's principal cast expected to come back for another round.
That means Ferrell, Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, easily the three biggest stars from the film, are all set to reprise their roles as jazz flute extraordinaire Ron Burgundy, dumb-as-a-brick Brick Tamland, and veritable sex panther Brian Fantana. Original director Adam McKay will once again step behind the lens, as well as co-write alongside Ferrell.
"Game of Thrones" returns for its second season next Sunday (April 1), bringing a big mess of a war along with it. No fewer than five individuals have crowned themselves king in the great fantasy world of Westeros, each of them with their eye on the Iron Throne. All week long, we'll look at each of these would-be kings and catch you up on everything you need to know about them going into season two.
To kick things off, who better than the
man boy currently ruling in King's Landing?
Know Your King
You know him well by now: the cruel boy king Joffrey Baratheon. (Though he has no real claim to that last name, as you also know.) He sits upon the Iron Throne and rules King's Landing with ruthless, reckless abandon. Despite being surrounded by very capable (and very shady) advisors, Joffrey subscribes to the great Eric Cartman's "whatever, I do what I want" philosophy; he is the king, after all, and if he wants heads to roll, roll they shall.
When it comes to "The Cabin in the Woods," anyone and everyone who's seen it will tell you the same thing: the less you know, the better. But I don't think there's any harm in watching the exclusive clip you'll see below — no major spoilers revealed, premise remains fairly basic, secrets are firmly intact by the end. But what you will get out of this, which I think is of great benefit to anyone mulling over a trip to the "Cabin," is a strong sense of the film's tone.
Yes, "Cabin" is a horror movie, but it's also hilarious. What more would you expect from a movie written by Joss Whedon and directed by Whedon regular Drew Goddard? Or starring "Dollhouse" fan-favorite Fran Kranz, alongside a big dumb jock turn from Chris Hemsworth, and as-yet-to-be-revealed roles for Bradley Whitford and Richard Jenkins?
You'll get plenty of laughs and chills in the video below. Go on, click away — we dare you.

"Cosmopolis's" first teaser trailer has hit the web and let's just say it's a bit more extreme than we would have expected.
The 30-second-long French trailer -- released yesterday on the film's French Facebook -- teases a performance from Robert Pattinson that is unlike anything we've ever seen. It opens up with Pattinson's voice set against a black background saying, "I'm looking for more. Aim and fire, come on, do it, flick the switch."
Is it a metaphor for something more? Maybe, but it's also entirely literal, as the teaser reveals Pattinson's sexy bodyguard and part time fling pointing a taser at his chest. He dares her, "Show me something I don't know." Our only response to that is, "Wow."
We've already detailed why Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark are two awesome characters from "The Hunger Games" film, so we'd be remiss if we didn't explain why Gale Hawthorne is a fitting third member to their group of badassdom.
Though Gale doesn't compete in the Hunger Games and has a relatively small role compared to Katniss and Peeta in the first film, he does have a much larger, significant part to play in the upcoming movies. Consider this a tease of all the reasons why you should pay attention to Katniss's best friend from District 12 when "The Hunger Games" hits theaters on Friday.
It was a bit of a bummer when Jason Segel announced that he wasn't planning on reprising his role as actor and co-writer in "The Muppets 2." The "Jeff, Who Lives At Home" star played an integral role in returning "The Muppets" to the big screen, so needless to say his costars were a bit disappointed when they heard he wouldn't be coming back.
MTV News recently had the opportunity to sit down with Muppets Kermit the Frog and Walter to promote the DVD release of the film, and they shared their thoughts on Segel's decision to pass the keys off to someone else for "The Muppets" sequel.
"Well, as long as he passes the keys," Kermit joked. "We loved working with Jason. He's a very huge Muppet fan. Literally. He's like seven feet tall."
Happy Hunger Games! In just a few short days, "The Hunger Games" will at long last hit the big screen. And, though Lionsgate has held off on showing some of the more action-packed sequences from the film, it should be universally known that this is going to be one of the most badass movies of the year.
When it's a story about 24 kids between the ages of 12 and 18 fighting to the death, how could it not be badass? We already detailed earlier why Katniss is a kickass leading lady, but her fellow District 12 tribute Peeta gives her a run for her money in the coolness category.
So in anticipation of Friday's release of "The Hunger Games," here's the five biggest reasons why Peeta Mellark is a badass.
With "The Hunger Games" only days away from its long-anticipated release, we decided to reflect on one of the many reasons you should check out this film -- namely, that leading lady Katniss Everdeen is a total badass.
It's the case in the books, and it's definitely the case in the movie. Katniss frequently exhibits qualities of a true badass that continue to blow us away. Whether it's providing food for her family or shooting a tribute through the neck with her bow and arrow, Katniss is never afraid to let her action heroine flag fly. And for that, we salute her.
In honor of Friday's release of "The Hunger Games," here are five reasons why Katniss is a total badass.
