    Speaking of Comic Con

    by Bass Ackwards

    How come they don't make a habit of putting the panels on the interweb? We always have to watch that stuff on crummy cell phone cameras and the like, they obviously have professional cameras there though cause we're always seeing them simulcast on the big screen behind the panel, why isn't that stuff ever put up in an official manner?

  • Aug. 4, 2010, 9:47 p.m. CST

    I dont get it

    by TheJudger

    I'm sure I want too either. Is that a bisexual symbol. The V becomes an A? Theres a arrow going into it. with the words "The" forming inside it. The arrow stopped going into the V and decided on A instead. I dont know man.....

    by Ribbons

    I'm guessing because they're afraid less people will go if they know they can just watch the panel online. Information, for free? Not on my watch! I don't understand as much why the studios themselves police leaked trailers made specially for Comic-Con ("Thor preview removed due to a copyright claim from Paramount," etc.) since they're never going to see the light of day otherwise, but maybe they think encouraging people to pack themselves into a hall will make the same material seem better, or something?

    by Ribbons

    Hey, don't argue with me, I'm just saying why I think THEY do it. Let's put it this way: baseball games could still sell out, but if they discover 5 or so people are watching from a nearby hill or roof, they'll put up a wall to block that view. If they can't find a way to make more people pay, they'll at least find a way to make less people not pay.

    ...but I'm a little tired of all the info that comes out two years ahead of time. Takes all the fun out of it. Granted it's just the cast and and animated logo, but that would have sufficed at Comic-Con a year from now. Seems like everyone is looking passed Thor and Cap already. But it's still pretty cool.

    by darth rod

    They could even make a buck for it if they say sold the rights for streaming to a website, or get good ol spunsors on a dedicated page, the amount of traffic would garantee exposure. It would still sell out, would help them grow; but what the hell I am talking about? it´s the comic book industry and growing and reaching new publoc is not in their vocabulary

    serious question...

    by MurderMostFowl

    What are they "Avenging" ? <BR><BR> I've never followed the comic. Is there some WWIII like even that gets it all going?

  • Aug. 5, 2010, 12:08 a.m. CST

    @MurderMostFowl

    by UrbanSamurai

    I think it has something to do with "to avenge" being defined as "righting the wrong" or "bringing justice to injustice" or whatever. I also do not understand why they didn't use "Avengers Assemble". It is one of the (few) famous catchphrases in comic books. Strange. And Loki and the Hulk are the villains? Really? This is what you need "the earth's mightiest superheroes" as a team for? Meeeh...

  • Aug. 5, 2010, 12:12 a.m. CST

    The "foes", eh?

    by kevred

    So does that mean a super-villain team-up, or maybe a large number of foes (e.g., Skrulls or some such)? Not sure if I can see the foes in the Marvel films so far (Whiplash, Abomination, Loki, Red Skull) being trotted out together - too easy to evoke Dr. Evil's crew. And the Skrulls are nice, but they seem like a bit of a retro, Mars Attacks-style baddie (and the shape-shifting could make for some dull action).<p>I wonder what direction they'll go.

  • Aug. 5, 2010, 12:13 a.m. CST

  • Aug. 5, 2010, 12:17 a.m. CST

    So far, so good.

    by LemonHeadRon

    The thing is, if you don't like comics, then you're probably not going to like this, if you like comics,then you'll want to see the movie. Anyone that says they're an avid comic reader/lover and have no interest or hope that this film wont suck are lying. It's looking good, so far everything that needs to be ticked is being ticked. Good cast, good director, good vision (a big, fun, epic summer movie) All good, i don't think i've seen anything in a clip or interview yet that's made me think "there you go, you blew it!" Sure I'd have liked Thors beard to be a touch longer, but shit it's not killing it for me. I'm looking forward to seeing who the enemy is, in the Teaser Avengers thing above it states 'enemies' so i'm guessing there will be a few, surely not Loki, as Thor will already have fought him? I can see it being the Hulk at first until they turn him and then maybe something new. Maybe Thanos?

  • Aug. 5, 2010, 12:17 a.m. CST

    What's that 3rd pic, Legion of Super-Heroes?

    by kevred

    Current comic art is so bad for the most part. Dour, flat, overly self-serious, no pizazz at all. And the supposed "gritty realism" of today's tired rehashings of old titles is summed up so very well by the 30-foot-tall Doc Martens pictured here. Yeah, grimly realistic...what a joke!

  • Aug. 5, 2010, 12:21 a.m. CST

    Great teaser

    by catlettuce4

    But like some others here I am not convinced it's going to work. Whedon being my main concern. I do think the project has a lot of cool things going for it, especially RDJ in the cast, but it's not a sure thing. Here's hoping it lives up to the potential.

  • Aug. 5, 2010, 12:22 a.m. CST

    Too many characters = fail?

    by Domi'sInnerChild

    You're kidding, right? X-Men worked (hell, I rewatch Watchmen more than I ever thought I would) and some of the all time classic "hero" movies are ensembles. From Magnificent 7 to Saving Private Ryan. Whether you had Whedon or not, he does specialize in dealing with teams. From Buffy to Toy Story to Firefly, the one thing he does pull off is juggling characters.

  • Aug. 5, 2010, 12:28 a.m. CST

    by kevred

    Really hoping this doesn't turn out to be some kind of post-modern bullshit where Thor, Hulk and Iron Man are rendered helpless while Black Widow, Nick Fury, and Hawkeye save the day. Can we, for once, have an epic battle film where the tough guys are allowed to be full-on, bad-ass tough guys? Give them proportionally tougher tasks to complete. Don't wuss out and take them down a peg. If it's the mightiest heroes saving the planet from a dire threat, they need to let the heroes be heroes.

    You guys are putting too much pressure on Whedon

    by paralyser-pro

    He's not the only one working on this film. He's the spearhead... and he's a good fucking choice because, if you'd ever seen astonishing X-Men, you'd see that he is one of the only Hollywood people out there that actually "gets" Marvel comics and will bring you a faithful adaptation. He will go to fucking bat for you against the H-wood suits, comics fans. And like I said, he's not in this alone. These movies are not little auteur projects like Serenity... this film is gonna be pre-vis'ed out the anus. The whole film is pretty much existent in digital 3D form as we speak; Joss is just waiting for the locations to be secured, the sets built and the cast and crew brought in to film.

    by Lemure_v2

    This is such a bold move, hope it pays off. I'm not sold on Whedon as a director, and they've got to hope Thor doesn't flop. Plus, 7/8 superheroes in one film is going to take some skill to ensure that they all get fair screen time.

    Rumor is Thanos will be the villain

    by vadakinX

    The introduction of the Infinity Gauntlet (in either Thor or Cap, can't remember which one) definitely suggests that Thanos may play a role. <p> If Warners do a Justice League movie it either has to be Darkseid (if he isn't already used in Superman) or some version of WarWorld with Mongul. DC by its nature is epic and anything that brings the worlds heroes together requires a worthy foe. <p> Marvel heroes tend to be a little more grounded and constrained in their realities but Avengers still calls for a villain who can crush each and every one of them individually, forcing them to team up. Thanos would be one such force. Galactus would be another though not only was he ruined my Tim Story, he is licensed to Fox. <p> I'm slightly down on a Skrull Invasion because I always assoiciated them with Fantastic Four and since they can't be in the movie (especially since the Torch went back in time to join the army,,,) it would feel a bit weird having the Skrull in there. <p> Regarding the Hulk, I fully expect Hulk and Thor to battle. My theory is that SHIELD will need Banner for something, Banner of course just wants to be left alone, he hulks out and fights Thor. <p> Once he's on board, say SHIELD needs a stable version of the super soldier serum to give to their agents to combat the upcoming threat. That's why they need Banner. But the only version of the serum that ever worked properly was the one given to Steve Rogers during the second World War. So they go on an expedition to the Arctic to find him...or SHIELD already has the body. <p> Either way, they thaw him out and are amazed to find that he has a heartbeat. <p> In fact in the Cap movie I would show his revival scene from his point of view, with Bruce Banner looking over him. Then the Avengers movie would begin a few months earlier. <p> The Avengers kinda writes itself. At least the assembling part does. The real test is going to be in fighting an opponent capable of beating them all without it being cheesy. Thanos is the obvious choice. <p> Actually it occurred to me that the gems on the Infinity Gauntlet could find their way into the hands of The Mandarin for Iron Man 3 as a way to explain the power of the rings.

    No decent heroes

    by dude_gimme_tabs

    It's just my opinion, and I fully accept that people feel differently and more power (and good luck) to them. However I can't be assed with this. Pretty much the entire line-up are lame heroes who could barely carry a movie franchise on their own. The only Marvel hero who is properly worthy of a franchise is Spiderman, and he has been done.<p> Iron Man ran out of ideas within 10 minutes of the 2nd film starting.<p> Everything else has been pointless flannel to set up this movie.<p> The X-Men movies were actually Wolverine movies with the others as supporting characters which is why they didn't feel overloaded. The "hero viewpoint" and the narrative drive come from Jackman's POV.<p> This will be a piss poor attempt to make adequate (and it will never be more than adequate - unless the running time is 6hrs) use of all these characters and turn into a massively budgeted box-ticking exercise, with some contrived solution needing just enough use of each heroes particular skills or powers to win. Yawn!

    by MajorTierce79

And no I am not a DC fanboy, but the DC superhero team is much more interesting than the Marvel one...Marvel has some great solo superhero but the ones in the avengers are lame...

    God, those Ultimate costumes suck more than I remembered.

    by Chewtoy

    Seriously, what atrocious design sense... But then, they were created to ape the first X-men movie's idea of what a live-action superhero costume should look like. Sunken-chest cat-headed Iron Man is probably the worst, but Cap is pretty horrible (what's the thinking in drawing the eyes to the outside of his shoulders with big white stars? It doesn't emphasize the width of his shoulders, it breaks up his upper torso and draws attention away from the points of action, his fists.). The Wasp has the only good costume, and hers is essentially her Avengers Forever look.

  • Aug. 5, 2010, 7:27 a.m. CST

    Hawkeye is interesting???

    by NightArrows

    What the fuck crack are you smoking? He's a piss poor Green Arrow. He's the least interesting hero in the bunch. Thor, if handled right, is awesome. As is Cap and Iron Man. The JLA has it's own issues in making things interesting (Batman's bullshit crybaby issues, Superman's power level, Flash being able to outrun LIGHT yet constantly being presented as "kinda fast"...at least in the shitty cartoon...Hawkman? Really? A giant fucking BIRD?). I will withhold judgement until I actually SEE this film as Bay isn't involved and the contrarian Debbie Downer™ cunts on this site annoy the shit out of baby Jesus.

    and come up with a fucking teaser? I mean,you've got stock footage of half of the group from previous films. You just have to get a quick shot of Cap's sheild and Hawkeye's bow or something. I can understand Marvel not wanting to "blow a load" to quickly but you could've given us something. While i'm on the subject, why do the studio's think it's such a big deal to hide the identity of the villian(s) until the very last trailer is set to roll?

Would it have killed them to perhaps put together something more visually interesting and engaging like some silhouettes of the team or perhaps make use of some unseen ironman or Hulk footage? Maybe show a quick glimpse of Captain America in costume or at least his face?<P> NaH...just a logo and Sam Jackson talking was apparently "good enough".

I've watched him in 'ES of the SM', Zodiac, Shutter Island and The Kids are All Right...and there are few other actors I've wanted so desperately to punch directly in the center of their foreheads. Norton onscreen I sympathize with as Banner, but that's a personal matter. 'Bros Bloom' is FR's only win for me. Norton or Nuttin', anyone who says they won't be distracted at all by his absence whether they like him or not, simply isn't being truthful. Again I hope you're right blunt...

Guess most of y'all are choosing the latter. Not me though. I'm staying positive, and if it bombs, well, at least we got to SEE an Avengers movie in our lifetime. And btw, you want a JLA movie? watch the previous one. eek.
