The Avengers: Japanese Trailer Includes Tons of New Footage of Gwyneth "Pepper Potts" Paltrow, Aliens and the Helicarrier

An awesome new trailer for Marvel Studios' upcoming super-team movie, The Avengers, has debuted on Yahoo! Japan that contains tons of footage from the movie not seen in the domestic trailers, including confirmation that Gwyneth Paltrow will cameo as Pepper Potts, her first appearance as the character outside of the Iron Man movies.
It's great to see Pepper — what, no Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau)? — but what is really exciting about the Japanese trailer is that it shows us much more of the "aliens" that Loki (Tom Hiddleston) has sided with in his quest to rule the planet, and offers a look at the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier from several different angles. Oh, and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) speaks for the first time since his cameo in Thor, too.
UPDATE: There's now an embeddable version of the trailer. See screengrabs from it below.
The Avengers was written and directed by Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Dollhouse). The cast includes Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow, Clark Gregg as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson, Cobie Smulders S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill, Samuel L. Jackson as S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury and Stellan Skarsgård as Erik Selvig.
