Sucks that Edward Norton didn't reprise Banner. Not sure on what to think about the new Banner.

I'm looking forward to it as well. Though I hope it doesn't turn out to be all hype....Having just seen the Thor movie not too long ago.

It'll be interesting to see how they handle this after over a year of build up.

Agreed. Edward Norton was a fantastic Bruce Banner, and that version of the Incredible Hulk was in general one of the best superhero movies I've seen.

Actually, the build-up started during the stinger scenes from Iron Man 1 and The Incredible Hulk. You just knew that they were going to make an Avengers movie and they were already making plans. Thor, Captain America and Iron Man 2 were simply the rungs of the proverbial ladder that began to pave the way further.

That being said, I would feel that Marvel Films has the advantage right now. Neither one of their movies bombed at all and all that DC Movies have going for them is The Dark Knight Trilogy. Superman Returns had a lukewarm reception at best, Green Lantern was....not very successful at all and there's no word about a Wonder Woman movie being completed yet and the TV show project got scrapped even before it truly got started!

Let's see how Marvel fares with the upcoming movie.

Except for the part where Thor chuckles... yes, you-who-edited-the-trailer, Stark is being Stark-ish, and we are supposed to consider him cool. We are that smart, there was no need to point it out.

Don't remember that trailer, but if you need to put the best parts of your movie in the trailer to catch viewers, that should be an hint that your movie has something wrong.

Exactly.

I think the only thing that was left out of the Rise of the Silver Surfer trailers was the whole relationship thing that was going on.

If you saw the trailer, you saw all the action and a glimpse at the ending. Bad idea...

The point is, if you're a Marvel fan, you know this movie is coming. The trailer is just like "hey, this is kinda what we're doing. Now all your money." :P

Speaking of that, Silver Surfer movie freaking when? As long as they make out pretty well, I don't think it's impossible to do it, though I have a hunch how it's gonna be made.

I didn't like how they made out Galactus on the 2nd FF movie, though. They made him into some kind of gas giant-like being with all that buildup they did. I don't care if you were gonna squeeze out the budget or anything, you make Galactus and his worldship right even if you have to extend the freaking movie more than half an hour to do so!

I believe Marvel asked if they could use him as the design for Ultimate Nick Fury, and he said sure, but only if he got to play him in the movies, which they were cool with. Kinda like the purple lightsaber thing from Star Wars.

Chaos Greyblood
May 4th, 2012, 07:50 PM
Will everyone on BL envy me because the premiere actually took place here in Mexicali earlier than all of the US and I watched it last week? :3 Because I did like it and so did my mother, oddly enough. My brother was kinda bored until the last quarter of the movie, but I thought it was damn good.

Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man is pure gold, especially with his lines. I think that arguably, he had the best lines of the movie. Also, I saw some girls on Facebook fawn on how hawt Thor is (Or rather, his actor). The guy who had the role of Loki was also quite apropos.

For the sequel, I want Christopher Lee voicing Thanos, damnit! He fits so well with the voice and goes along so well with Thanos' malevolence, his dark magnificence and absolute basrtardry.

Also, word on the grapevine says that Mark Ruffalo struck a deal with Marvel and may do at least 6 movies.

Elf
May 6th, 2012, 11:49 AM
The Cap's costume in this was inferior to the one in Cap's movie. -_-

You know, you're not the only one to say that.

I thought Cap's First costume was cool. Where he just sort of grabbed a bunch of random gear and wore the shirt from his stage show to go save his friend. That was a cool costume.

Also, did you know that there are a lot of Avengers that cannot appear in an Avengers movie because they're currently owned by other studios?

Like Fox owns the rights to the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver due to their X-Men package deal. Sony of course owes Spider-Man. I know it would be impossible for the two studios to sell their rights back to Disney but . . .

I want the Scarlet Witch as an Avenger.

I grew up reading my Dad's Avengers comics, particularly the famous Perez/Busik run where the Scarlet Witch was a predominant character. I liked her a lot, I loved Perez's redesign of her costume, and I liked the romantic conflict with her, Wonder Man, and the Vision.

I'm not going to get into what Marvel did to her character, because that would be a ten page rant, but I'd love to see her as an Avenger written by Joss Whedon. Because, as cool as the Black Widow is, the movie team needs more women.

Just one problem with that, the rights to the Scarlet Witch character are owned by Fox as part of their X-Men Deal. Which yes, Wanda is a mutant and Magneto's daughter, but until House of M she was always an Avenger first and foremost. Sure having other characters cross over and meet would be cool, especially a Hulk VS The Thing fight would be awesome, but I'd be happy with just Wanda Maximoff on the team.

Chaos Greyblood
May 6th, 2012, 12:33 PM
About a Hulk vs Thing, there's always a chance for another Hulk animated feature.

Somehow, I don't think having Mockingbird will do you any good, won't it? Or maybe Wasp as well?

Wait, better option! Miss Marvel! But maybe that'll be more likely to happen in another Avengers movie when the Kree come knocking on Earth's door.

The Avengers II: Governmental Boogaloo will be known as a cornerstone of the film genre for making the movie not about the action or the plot, but about diving into the psyche of the superheroes.

mewarmo990
May 6th, 2012, 02:44 PM
I think the pain in the ass that's usually involved when convincing the Sentry to do anything at all outweighs any potential cool factor of putting him into a movie.

Personally I'd like to see the Civil War arc on the silver screen or TV some day. I always thought it was awesome of The Incredibles to include that in the plot, and I'd like to see a more serious exploration of it.

Of course, the cast for a movie like that would be even more expansive (and EXPENSIVE) than The Avengers, so who knows? I just want to see Chris Evans play Cap and Johnny Storm in the same movie.

It'd be nice if they did the Civil War arc without the really silly Skrull War tie-in. That just made it hilarious, not even barely serious.

Well, it's the stuff after Civil War that I really liked. CW's writing was kind of a mess. Doesn't mean a screenplay couldn't improve on it -- the bar was not set that high. Might be too long for a movie, though.

And yeah, there's still a lot of stuff for the Avengers to face. The reason we got Loki and not some more obviously world-threatening menace is because Fox still owns the rights to most of the A-list Marvel villains.

Part of the problem was that there was the Civil War core books and then all the other normal comics that got sucked into the Civil War. Now Mark Milliar's Civil War had some cool moments in it. Like Cap beating the shit out of the Punisher and the Punisher letting him do it because he had too much respect to hit Cap back. However there was a lot of homoerotic context with Tony and Steve. A lot. 0-0

That said if Joss does do Avengers 2, and it seems like they want him to (they'd be stupid if they didn't get him to do a second one), and he'd want to . . . I think there are other things he can play with other than the Civil War.

Like Thanatos.


And yeah, there's still a lot of stuff for the Avengers to face. The reason we got Loki and not some more obviously world-threatening menace is because Fox still owns the rights to most of the A-list Marvel villains.

Read The Ultimates and see how much of a threat Loki can be.

Still, there are villains that Fox doesn't hold the rights to that could be awesome. Like Ultron, Count Nefaria, The Wrecking Crew etc. Hell, I'd love to see Taskmasker make an appearance.

That's not what I meant either. I like Loki. He's just not that iconic of Marvel and that was my personal expectation.

I don't object to having Loki as the villain, I just didn't expect it.

I think part of the reason they went with it is because the actor playing Loki did such a good job honestly.

I'll get to see it next weekend and I'm excited as hell. Not only am I a big Avengers fan, I am a huge Joss Whedon Fangirl. Huge.

Yeah, I know. It's just... I didn't expect Loki to be the Big Bad of the capstone to all of Marvel's movie ventures these past few years.

really? marvel's production out put gave it away really. they tend to include commonly featured villains and heroes etcetera across their releases be it CB TV or movies. and Loki has been huge in the comics for two years now (joey Q not withstanding) and been featured a whole bunch in avengers EMH.

I wonder if they'll also be a good idea for intergalatic action, like with Galactic Storm. Though I think it fits a lot better as an animated movie rather than a real action one, just like with a few of the storylines that have been mentioned.


Read The Ultimates and see how much of a threat Loki can be.

Please don't forget Dark Reign. Loki's also made a lot of stuff fly even under the nose of Norman Osborn.

You know another interesting villain we'd see? Baron Zemo. I'd probably vote for Helmut Zemo and have him create the Masters of Evil.

Lol, the helicarrier. If you look at it you'll notice one of the landing areas for VTOLs or Helicopters is next to a gigantic turbine. This means that if they overshoot their landing or if they don't land and then tow themselves to their spot or they screw up their lift off then their helicopter is going to be confetti. Turbines that lift a gigantic super carrier = need a shit load of air that they're sucking from top to bottom.

Because Brian Micheal Bendis is retarded and makes metaphorical baby Jesus cry. And Wolverine was part of the clusterfuck mess that was the New Avengers with Spider-Man and Power Man.

If Whedon does Avengers 2, which I hope to god he will, there would be no Wolverine even if they had the license. When he was writing Astonishing there were all these snide comments about how Wolverine was over used. (There's a hilarious interview in an issue of Wizard magazine where Whedon was writing as if Cyclopes was being interviewed. The snark was heavy there.)

I'd be happy with Wanda myself.

No.

I'd love to see Wonder Man, the Vision, or if we want an X-Men as part of the Avengers, well did you know that the Beast has been an Avenger almost as long as he's been an X-Men?

In fact, his relationship with Wonder Man is one of the most famous and fun relationships in Marvel Comics?

Yeah. I'd rather see the Beast and Wonder Man before seeing Spider-Man or Wolverine as an Avenger, and the Beast had better be played by Kelsey Grammer.

I'ed like to see more of Robin (Maria Hill) and Nick Fury kicking ass. I must not have been the only guy that thought he said "M***** F*****, do I look like a bitch to you?" when he shot down the F-35 taking off.

In order for an Avengers 2 to be made, they'ed have have to finish Iron Man 3. I believe Captain America 2 is also in the works and I could see Thor's world being flushed out more as well. I'm not "quite" sure if Hulk needs more interaction though... New characters for the Avengers is possible, but the realistic "attention span" and time limit is for about 6 people, meaning if the focus still stays on the Big 4 then people like Hawkeye or BW's sections would have to be cut to make time. I'ed prefer Whendon just keep the current 6 hero focus. Coulson :-(

I did not know this thread was here o.O

I watched it shortly after release here and damn...I cannot think of a bad thing to say! Joss Whedon really did it (granted I liked Angel and most of Dollhouse...)

Chris Evans has really won me over as Captain America (I always felt Eric Johnson had the better look for the part) In the CA movie, Chris Evans didn't do it for me until the very end when he wakes in our time, but throughout this movie he was amazing. I missed Edward Norton, but Mark Ruffalo was great...he did a good attempt at Hindi, using believable basic terms (English directly translated into Hindi, rather than more often used Hindi phrases)

I notice Hawkeye swapped out his bow from Thor.

But yes, in regards to appearances from the New Avengers? Outside fun cameos...no.

I can totally foresee that girl (I only know her as Gretchen from Recess!) being Cap's love interest...I jelly.

I think the pain in the ass that's usually involved when convincing the Sentry to do anything at all outweighs any potential cool factor of putting him into a movie.

Personally I'd like to see the Civil War arc on the silver screen or TV some day. I always thought it was awesome of The Incredibles to include that in the plot, and I'd like to see a more serious exploration of it.

Of course, the cast for a movie like that would be even more expansive (and EXPENSIVE) than The Avengers, so who knows? I just want to see Chris Evans play Cap and Johnny Storm in the same movie.

Don't think Civil War would work for the Marvel Movie-verse, since they're all basically registered already.

...I hated X1 and X2 simply because they were all about Wolverine, and they were just so bad. X3 I liked a lot more because it wasn't so Wolvie-centric (+ Angel so...)

I quite liked the stories of the Spider-Man movies (Tobey Maguire not so much) From what I hear, the reboot was because of a difference of opinion between Sam Raimi and Sony (I can't remember which big company was involved in it...) Raimi wanted to focus more on the earlier villains - which I found interesting and cool - but the big company wanted the newer villains like Venom.

Nah, that scene was produced (or so I heard) the day before the US release. Therefore, they could only add it to US versions since all the other versions were shipped out. If you look at all the heroes, you'll notice Captain America is holding his hand up, hiding his face and looking hung over. That's because Chris Evans already grew a beard back and he was trying to hide it from the camera.

Interesting fact, while Iron man blows through one of the flying whale things (the one where he does a Jonah), he bounces up and down the street afterwards. In a blink and you'll miss it section, you can actually see a shwarma joint.

Nah, that scene was produced (or so I heard) the day before the US release. Therefore, they could only add it to US versions since all the other versions were shipped out. If you look at all the heroes, you'll notice Captain America is holding his hand up, hiding his face and looking hung over. That's because Chris Evans already grew a beard back and he was trying to hide it from the camera.

Interesting fact, while Iron man blows through one of the flying whale things (the one where he does a Jonah), he bounces up and down the street afterwards. In a blink and you'll miss it section, you can actually see a shwarma joint.

I heard from a guy at the premiere that he got in the elevator with the cast and saw they were all dressed up, so he asked "What the hell are you guys up too?"

"We have more to film!"

And some hilarity.
Especially Hulk punching Thor out of the blue. That was just...wonderful. Also, this made me pair Hawkeye and Black Widow more than the comics have done.
Oh, and Bruce was really well done. I really should see the latest Hulk, if that's any indication.

Added to the fact that the new Spider-Man movie is coming out in a few months. Which I will see, and have been looking forward to. With the fury of a thousand suns.


I thought the funniest parts were the Galaga scene and "he's adopted"

That and Hulk smashing him into the ground like a ragdoll.
I also really enjoyed Black Widow's comment about how she de-programmed Hawkeye. :3

What did she say since I couldn't hear it due to the laughter of the theater.

and what did Hulk say after doing what he did to Loki?

I think she said something technical then looked at him, while he was like "What" and admitted "I gave you a concussion."

The Hulk said "Puny God."

I heard he gets better in an interview, although the fans are split on that one. I "THINK" in the end Coulson approaches Fury just as the camera pans out (after his chat with the world council) but I can't be certain until the DVD comes out.

Pretty good movie. They built up Banner really well, but then the payoff to it all was disappointing. If you clearly have control, what was the problem before?

this =_=

although the thor punch kinda helped
kinda

maybe if they emphasized that theyd been making the aliens targets for him it would have helped
like i was under the impression he was still out of control was just like "WTF ARE THESE BUZZY THINGS, SMAAASSSH" but then they did that circle line up thing =_=

i feel like there was a scene/step missing in there somewhere between werewolf-like killer monster and team-tank

Regardless of how things went with the direction of the characters, the settings, and the execution, it was still a fun movie though. I don't nitpick as much as i do and from the look of how I type this post, I guess I stopped giving a darn. Maybe next movie. I do see that the disappoints with the Hulk as he isn't shown much during the fights.

it's not control really, the hulk, aside from Joe fix it and the professor are still forces of nature, it's just that bruce is among friends on the avengers and hulk knows that so he's less blind mad like he is when hopping round the mid west

If Joss Whedon didn't already have all of my love for Buffy, Angel, and Firefly, he'd have all of it for this.

Also I FUCKING TOLD YOU HE WAS BRILLIANT!

As pretty much perfect as this movie was, yegod all the small details, the greatest victory is that Whedon's talent will be accepted by others. So fuck you haters. Fuck you.

Now for the Hulk, it's pretty simple. On the Shield Carrier Bruce was getting pissed at everyone's hidden agendas etc and was feeling betrayed. This betrayal translated to the Hulk when he appeared and wanted to hurt the people who hurt him. Now when he transformed to fight the aliens, he was helping people who were going to get smashed. Even though Hulk "hate puny Banner", he's not evil and he does not like seeing things getting picked on.

Ergo, Hulk smashing.

The one thing that made me kind of sad, which is a fault to no one in the movie, is that Robert Downey Jr. stole the show pretty much every scene he was in. There really wasn't anyone who could keep up with him screen presence wise. However, I would be happy if Joss Whedon did nothing else the rest of his life other than write dialogue for Robert Downey Jr.

Also, I love Hawkeye, I always have.

Thanatos seems to be an interesting villain next time around, but honestly, I'd rather see Ultron.

It was good, but I couldn't enjoy it as much I wanted to because I kept comparing it to the first Ultimates miniseries by Millar/Hitch.

Thanatos seems to be an interesting villain next time around, but honestly, I'd rather see Ultron.

It's somewhat similar with Avengers:EMH in which the Hulk was rather mistrusting to the Avengers at first because they couldn't gel well as a group at the start (That and Amora the Enchantress stirring things up didn't help matters) and he also felt that they couldn't trust him because they still think he's a rampaging monster. It also seems that his inner issues with Bruce are interesting enough in which inner Bruce is able to talk some sense into the Hulk and the big guy more or less listens to him now and doesn't have him in comtempt like in other Avengers related media, as well as his movies and cartoons.

More on Hulk, I like Superheroes Squad Show not only because it's pretty funny and has a nice take on the characters at large, THEY ALSO MADE THE HULK LOVABLE!!! Yeah, he's like the Nappa on that show. They made the guy funny and that's a nice angle to take on the Hulk because it's a nice change of pace from the 'rampaging big guy that smashes stuff' thing.

Since I mentioned the Enchantress, I hope that when they make the next Thor movie, they'll have a lovely and worthy actress for her. Amora is love if it wasn't for the fact that she... well, you know. >:3

1. Why are you using XBox? PS3 actually has games now, and its controller feels more comfortable in your hands.
2. For some of the button prompts in the ending, you're gonna wish you didn't have to push them. There is one part in particular I had no idea what the fuck I was doing.

You get all the bonding you need from that ending man. It's REALLY GOOD. I think I've said this before, but I'l' reiterate. That was the best 7 dollars I've ever spent, although my opinion of that might be colored somewhat because I absolutely love the game. I was ready to set Capcom on fire with everybody else when I heard the ending was DLC, but I genuinely think it was worth the spent money.
