I don't know where else to post this. :v:
[QUOTE=darcy010;26348948]I didn't know they were going to have Hawkeye, Loki, Rhodey. I hope they don't try and put in some more superheroes. It might get a bit overwhelming at some points.
Also I can't wait until Ironman 3 which is fully going to set up Tony Stark and Rhode's placement in the Avengers team.
Also they're going to get Mark Ruffalo in a motion caption suit so they get the movement and facial features of him when he is in hulk mode.[/QUOTE]
Well, they've gotta have Loki, since he was the first villain the Avengers ever faced, and somewhat responsible for the original team.
Hawkeye joined early on, in like the 16th issue. I think Jeremy Renner will be good, but I hear that they're not using the original costume design. I also think Terrence would have been as better War Machine.
Come on, I can't be the only Avengers fan on facepunch?
Can't wait to see this movie, Captain America looks awesome, Iron Man has always been fun to watch. All of them together in a move, badass
I wonder If Samuel Will be good in this role as Nick.
...Isn't Nick White in the Comic Books then why did the make him black?
This Nicholas Fury is based on the Ultimate Universe. They had sought permission to use his likeness.

They based ultimate nick fury off of Samuel L. Jackson.

So in turn, Samuel L. Jackson plays Nick Fury in the movies.
Excited as hell for The Avengers.
Gonna be first in line for this shit.
I'm expecting War Machine to fuck shit up big-time just because his name is War Machine.

I will not accept anything less.[/b]
Actually, War Machine will not appear in the Avengers. He'll be getting his own spin-off instead.

Just out of curiosity, where did you hear that exactly?
[b]WHAT![/b] They replaced Edward Norton, THIS IS A FUCKING OUTRAGE! >:(
Edward Norton replaced Edward Norton

Yeah, it occurred to me, that Mark Ruffalo is just far too old to play the Hulk. I also saw something on wikipedia about Lou Ferrigno somehow being involved. [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Avengers_(film_project)[/url] I can't imagine.

He's doing the voice of the Hulk, just like he did with the Ed Norton film.
[QUOTE=postal;28161589]He's doing the voice of the Hulk, just like he did with the Ed Norton film.[/QUOTE]
Yeah, but more to the point, I can't imagine him physically playing the part. Too cheeseball for today's standards. I also heard something about Mark Ruffalo actually playing the part with stop-action. Like Avatar style.
I have no idea what they're really gonna do for the Hulk.
the thor movie looks like dog shit yo
Would be awesome if the Ironman armour Joss decides to use is Extremis Armour! it's a bit early for it to be in the first Avengers film but damn! it'd look awesome!

Jeremy Renner Has Read 'Avengers' Script, Hasn't Seen Hawkeye's Costume
[quote]"The Avengers" hits theaters in 2012, bringing together Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and a host of other Marvel Comics heroes in one massive team-up event. While each of the aforementioned characters will have made their debut in a solo movie (or two) by the time "Avengers" premieres, the film will also feature a few other well-known heroes — including Jeremy Renner as super-marksman Clint Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye.
MTV News caught up with Renner on the Oscars red carpet to get a few more details about his upcoming debut as the Avengers' expert archer, and how much he's seen of the "Avengers" script.
"Yes, I have [read the 'Avengers' script]," Renner told MTV News. "It's tremendous. I can't tell you anything about it."
While Renner couldn't reveal anything about the role his character will play in the film, he did share some thoughts about "Avengers" director Joss Whedon and the intimidating task he's faced with in putting all of these heroes — and the actors who play them — on the same screen.
"It's a massive undertaking, how he [will need to] pull all of those characters off and have it make sense," he said. Asked whether he's been chatting with Whedon about the role, Renner said the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" creator has been a little difficult to track down lately. "That guy's elusive. He's like a ninja. [He's] elusive. I don't see him very often."
As for what he's doing to prepare for the role, Renner indicated that some time with bow and arrows is definitely on his to-do list.
"There's some training I have to do, some archery lessons, obviously," he laughed.
As for the rumor that Hawkeye will make his debut via a cameo in "Thor," Renner wouldn't confirm or deny his involvement in the May 6 film starring Chris Hemsworth as Marvel's god of thunder.
"I might [have a cameo]," he teased. "Go see it. Check it out."
However, Renner seemed to indicate that even if Hawkeye does have a cameo in "Thor," he might not be in costume.
"I have not seen [the costume] yet," said the actor when asked about the archer's costume in the film.[/quote]
[b]Mark Ruffalo Reveals Hulk/Banner Balance In 'Avengers,' Hints At New Angle & 'Great' Introduction[/b]
[quote]This weekend, Mark Ruffalo revealed some details about how the Hulk will look in 2012's superhero team-up "The Avengers," but that wasn't all the news the actor shared with us about his upcoming turn as the green goliath's alter ego, Bruce Banner.
During last night's run-up to the Academy Awards, Ruffalo spoke to MTV News on the red carpet and shed a little more light on how the balance between Bruce Banner and Hulk will play out in "The Avengers."
Asked how much time he'll spend as Bruce Banner and as Hulk, Ruffalo said, "It's about equal. It really is."
The actor also hinted at some interesting twists for Bruce Banner's debut in "The Avengers," and an angle on the character that fans might not see coming.
"There's some great Bruce Banner stuff [in 'Avengers'], kind of a slant on him that we haven't seen before," said Ruffalo. "He's introduced in a really great way."
The Oscar-nominated actor also reiterated that he'll be playing both Bruce Banner and Hulk in the film — something that hasn't happened in previous big-screen installments of the character's adventures.
"All the great Hulk stuff, which I'll be doing too," he said. "I'll be the first actor to do them both."
While Ruffalo was happy to chat about some of the aforementioned topics, he wasn't giving anything away when MTV News asked about the Hulk's allegiances in the film. Would the green goliath be a force for good or, like the Avengers' comic book origins, be the destructive threat that the heroes must unite to defeat?
"Only time will tell," grinned Ruffalo.[/quote]

[b]Stellan Skarsgård To Reprise His 'Thor' Character For 'Avengers'[/b]
[quote]With no background in comic continuity, little is known about the character Doctor Selvig in Kenneth Branagh’s upcoming “Thor,” beyond the fact that he will be played by Swedish veteran actor Stellan Skarsgård.
But just because Selvig isn’t backed up by the books doesn’t mean he’ll be a one-film footnote.
Thor’s distant kinsmen, the Swedish, are reporting that Skarsgård will carry on his “Thor” role to “The Avengers.”
Skarsgård confirmed to Swedish newspaper Expresen.se (content translated by Whedonesque) that he will play Doctor Selvig—the same role he plays in the "Thor"—in Joss Whedon’s epic team-up. At the moment, little is known about the character beyond that he “is a scientist in New Mexico.”
Curiously, IMDb refers to Skarsgård’s role as “Dr. Andrews.” Online chatter speculates the character may become a surprise villain. (Now a not-so-surprise villain?)
"The Avengers” is slated for May of next year.[/quote]
The anticipatory purple costume, doesn't look as good as I had hoped, while the black looks like total shit. Seeing as how they're basing it more off the Ultimate Avengers, perhaps they should do something more like this: [img]http://i.annihil.us/u/prod/marvel//universe3zx/images/thumb/e/e5/Ult_Hawkeye.jpg/406px-Ult_Hawkeye.jpg[/img]
I'll see if I can find one with him holding a bow and arrow too.
quick question since i haven't been following any recent movies
i see there is also a thread for a movie called Thor, now is that movie a separate movie only about Thor? was it canceled? is the actor doing both movies?
Separate movie but part of the same universe where The Avengers will take place.
ah i understand now, that's pretty cool
Hawkeye's costume detailed!
[quote]While Paramount had their big Marvel Studios presentation last night, Walt Disney Pictures wasn't going to let any of the CinemaCon attendees forget that they're taking over distribution of the Marvel movies starting in May 2012 with The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon.
About halfway through the presentation, they surprised us by showing a sizzle reel assembled from footage from previous Marvel movies along with EPK-style interviews with various members of the cast for the ensemble action film. The reel included some new footage we haven't seen from Thor where he's smashing his hammer down and causing waves of destruction, what looked like some pre-vis for The Avengers, as well as our first look at what Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye costume is going to look like.
Basically, Hawkeye's costume is going to be very similar to the Ultimates version of the character and what he looks like on the cover to the left. In the concept art, we see Renner wearing similar dark glasses and a leather outfit with a matching over-the-shoulder leather quill for his arrows, only the movie version of Hawkeye has the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo emblazoned on it to show his government allegiances. His precision bow is much like the one used by archers who do it for sports and hunting, which again, is also much like the Ultimates Hawkeye has in the picture to the left.
The short presentation also included a little bit with Mark Ruffalo talking about the Hulk and how he's definitely going to be a hero in this movie rather than being the catalyst that brings the group together as was the case in the early comics, although as we seen in the comics too many times, you can't put these many egos together without a few fights happening along the way. There was no mention of Skrulls.[/quote]
