Iron Man: I'm bringing the party to you.
Black Widow: I don't see how that's a party.
~ Iron Man leading a Leviathan

The Leviathans are supporting antagonists of the 2012 Marvel film The Avengers. They are giant flying intergalactic beasts that serve as warships for Loki and the Chitauri during their invasion of Earth.

History

Preparing An Invasion

As part of the deal he made with The Other, (the right-hand of the Mad Titan Thanos), Loki acquired the Tesseract before having a brainwashed Eric Selvig to invent a device to contain its power and to use it to open a portal in the sky.

Invading Earth

After heading to Stark Towers located in New York City, Loki used the machine to open a portal, allowing the first Leviathan to transport itself and hundreds of Chituari soldiers into Earth. Fortunately, the Avengers arrive in to the rescue as Iron Man managed to catch the first Leviathan's attention by deploying missiles at its face. As the Leviathan chased after Tony, Tony leads it to Bruce Banner, who transforms into the Hulk and manages to kill the Leviathan by punching it in the face, stopping it dead in its tracks.

Death

After Loki watched its demise, he was unperturbed by this as he orders the Chitauri to summon the rest, revealing dozens of more Leviathan appearing from the portal. However, the Avengers countered and destroyed many of the Leviathans with their powers and skills. Despite the Avengers' efforts, many more Leviathans were coming to even the odds against the heroes. Fortunately, Iron Man manages to deploy a missile fired by S.H.I.E.L.D. into the Chituari warship located on the other side of the portal, causing all of the remaining Leviathans and Chituari to fall into the ground and die. This also allows Hulk to finally defeat Loki and allow Thor to take him back to Asgard to face trial for his crimes against humanity.
