Avengers Assemble! New Photos of Chris "Thor" Hemsworth and Tom "Loki" Hiddleston on the Set

At the close of Thor, the title hero (Chris Hemsworth) was stranded in Asgard and his evil adopted brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), was adrift in space-time. Nevertheless, the two brothers will continue their love-hate relationship with each other on Midgard (Earth) in The Avengers, each with new allies by their sides, Thor with "Earth's Mightiest Heroes" and Loki with an alien invasion force.
We've already gotten to see the two Asgardians in action on the set of The Avengers when writer-director Joss Whedon was filming in Cleveland, Ohio —
an excellent "spy" video turned up online that showed Thor batting around a car with his hammer, while another showed Loki fighting Captain America (Chris Evans). Now, several high-quality photos of the pair have come out of the New York City set, including one that shows the two holding an Asgardian device for housing the Cosmic Cube, the mysterious artifact used by the Red Skull (Hugo Weaving) to power his weapons in First Avenger: Captain America and which appears to be at the heart of the conflict in The Avengers.
