Wondering how Earth's Mightiest Heroes go about recruiting the volatile Hulk for the upcoming "Avengers"? Wonder no more.

The latest trailer for the May release finds the lovely Black Widow (Scarlett Johannson) tracking mild-mannered Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) to one of those isolated locales where he hides out to protect puny humans from his alter-ego. She asks him to come with her.

"What if I say… no?" he says.

"I'll persuade you," she says with a sly smile. But it's one of those classic comic-book double meanings. Cut to a group of agents surrounding his tent.

You know those trailers that give away a character's entire arc? This is one of them. Note how almost tenderly the green-skinned goliath holds Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) as he dramatically rescues him from a mid-air fall.

Hulk love metal man, is team player now! Aaaarrrrr!

Other thoughts: The computer-animated Hulk still looks weird after all these attempts. Captain America's mask still looks goofy.

The movie still looks awesomely fun in spite of these things.
