The Avengers


So 4 years of movies, and we have finally come to this. When faced with a threat no single hero could defeat, The Avengers Assemble.

Timeline for those playing at home:

Iron Man
Iron Man 2
The Incredible Hulk
Thor
Captain America

So the man Marvel/Disney have thought to to the best to direct this movie is Joss Whedon, the man knows how to do an ensemble cast, so fingers crossed!

The cast:

Robert Downey Jnr - Tony Stark/Iron Man
Chris Evans - Steve Rogers/Captain America
Chris Hemsworth - Thor
Scarlett Johansson - Black Widow
Jeremy Renner - Hawkeye
Samuel L. Jackson - Nick Fury
Cobie Smulders - Maria Hill
Mark Ruffalo - Bruce Banner/The Hulk
Clark Gregg - Agent Coulson
Tom Hiddleston - Loki

Annnnnnnnndddd Lou FKN Ferrigno as the voice of Hulk!

so i'm guessing from looking at the credits on imdb that the only villian will be the character Loki?

There will be an intergalactic threat, Loki of course, and what we originally thought to be the Chatari (Ultimate Skrulls) as there have been alotta guys in motion capture suits and mo-caps in the set pics!

Seems Whedon has put that to bed, as he has begun twitting about the main threat being Leviathan!

You guys familiar? Now that could mean the Terrorist Cell Leviathan, or it could mean more in the traditional sense, like a sea monster or some shit.

Quote:

Total Film: Are you basing The Avengers on any particular comic book series?

Whedon: No, it's an amalgam. There's some originals, some Ultimates and some characters from different runs-and hopefully some new stuff too. We're certainly not going to have Hulk killing hundreds of people. It's not as cute on film as it is in the comics.

Who are The Avengers going to be fighting?

Well we all know Loki's in the house, beyond that I'm not saying!

Will we be seeing any new villains from outside the Marvel Universe?

We're definitely going to see something new...but I'm playing this one close to the chest!

Awwwwwww! Aint it sweet?!

Awww, The Ultimates is RIPE for movie conversion. Will be interesting.

And yeah, Ruffio is the new Hulk/Banner and Hulk was an original Avenger.

Most of that footage doesn't even make up a third of the movie

I still hold some reservations though...

I don't want to get my hopes up that this is going to be amazing, but I still have this glimmer of hope that Tony Stark is just gonna make everything awesome.

yeah batman begins/dark knight are exceptions. and iron man possibly

but thats about it, i haven't liked any comic book hero movie since them.

Capt America was midly ok. mildly

Vampire Slayers and superhereos are two different kettle of fishes.

Ed, Joss has been writing for Marvel Comics for close to 10 years now, he began with Astonishing X-Men!



He did that!

Trailer day! Epic stuff! So glad Loki's snapped and obviously there's a wedge driven between the team with that shot of Thor vs Cap.

Whedon was a great choice for this. He should keep it all entertaining but grounded enough that it doesn't descend into absurd spandex melodrama.

Thor was pretty good, Iron man was also good, (2 was a bit iffy)

and I haven't seen Captain America yet to pass judgement.

But you would hope that they can't stuff this one up.

Astonishing X-Men was average at best, stop kidding yourself, Onslaught.

BUT, Whedon did Firefly (and Serenity) which is one of the best ensemble shows ever, so I have faith.

That trailer gave me goosies.

I HAVE ALWAYS FUCKING LOVED HAWKEYE!

(still gotta see Cap)

From the looks of the trailer it should have been called "Iron man & friends".

Not too fussed with this movie, the only movie from this bunch of heros I enjoyed were the iron man movies BUT if it is Tony Stark one line fest I will be happy with that.
Crazy people are ace doorslammers.

A little comment form Joss:

Quote:

“I set out with a very simple problem: There is no reason for these people to be in the same movie. So that’s what my movie has to be about. So much of the movie takes place from Steve Rogers’ perspective, since he’s the guy who just woke up and sees this weird ass world. Everyone else has been living in it.”
