AVENGERS ASSEMBLE! Live-Action TV Footage!

Greetings, comic connoisseurs! ROBOGEEK here with something sorta special...

While most TV-watching superhero geeks I know are eagerly anticipating such projects as Cartoon Network's JUSTICE LEAGUE animated series and, of course, Fox's much-delayed live-action series adaptation of THE TICK, I thought I'd bring you a peek at something you may or may not have seen (in the interest of equal time).

Captain America! Spider-Man! The Hulk! Iron Man! Thor! The Scarlet Witch! Hawkeye! They're all here - in the flesh! See for yourself in this 30 second 2.7MB 240x180 QuickTime file...




So maybe it is just that "Got Milk?" commercial... but it still is kinda geeky-cool (and is something many AICNers have been asking for since it started airing). And, by gosh, doesn't it just make you wish there really was a live-action AVENGERS series - or movie? How cool would that be?

Anyway, just thought I'd share - and hopefully bring a smile to your Monday. ;-)

"What... do you fight? HA!!!

- Robogeek

P.S.: And, yes, in case you missed it... that hotlink in the second paragraph takes you to a rare snippet of genuine TICK series footage!

    Thor looks like the android from Logan's Run...

    Not the movie... The TV series.

    I used to buy The Avengers as a kid. I love comics as much as the next person. But sometimes I have to admit that a real person dressed up as Hawkeye or the Scarlet Witch just looks stupid. :(

    Got organic web shooters?

    One time I was watching the tube with Pappy Socko, and this commercial came on. Pappy turned to me and said, "I recognise Spider-Man, but who are those other guys?" I tried to explain the Avengers to him, but he just tuned it out. This thing is damn goofy, but I love it anyway.

    Hasn't this been out for weeks?

    by Nadir

    I like the one where the old guy's - who never drinks milk - arms fall right off. Now that's comedy.

    The Hulk in the commercial looks more like the Hulk from the comics than Lou Ferrigno (don't know if his sir name is spelled right) ever did. Plus, the Scarlet Witch is hot. Check out her gams in the group shot.

    What Gaspode said

    by Eyegore

    So what is the news part of this? Robogeek doesn't watch TV for months then thinks everything he sees now is new? Or that the avengers finally stop thinking of spidey as a criminal vigilante and let him hang out at the mansion with the big boys?

    Any time I get to see an "in the flesh" Hawkeye is okay with me. Now I have it in convenient desktop size. I would dearly love to see more of Hawkeye's shaft in this commercial.

    What Are You Trying To Pull??

    by godzthor1

    Geez, guys, I've had this clip on my hard drive since December 7th. Of last year. You know, of the last Century!! Do try to be more current in the future, where we all must live.

    C'mon people.. Try not to be such assholes...

    So what if it's old.. As Robogeek says, he'd just thought he'd try to "bring a smile to our Monday". Grow up... And, for any people too dense to realize it, the real story here is the TICK footage, not the "Got Milk?" commercial.. Thanks, Robogeek!

    Geeks. The man was simply posting it in QuickTime for you all to view for the heck of it. There is nothing that says this is breaking news. Unlike an annoucement on one of you getting laid. Now that's breaking news. Fucking tools. Just read it for the fun of it...buncha critical louses...

    for the guy who wanted xmen2 news

    by buffylover

    i'm shocked that no one put this up here, but, according to ,, and ignfilmforce, guess who was just listed in the xmen2 cast on young actor Scott Caan and......ANTHONY HOPKINS?! yep,that's right. is any of this true? only time will tell, but i tell ya that's one hell of a story if it is true.

    I doubt we'll ever see an Avenger's movie.

    by superninja

    Too bad that cartoon was so rank. Hey, I'm not complaining about the subject matter, simply because it's about comics2film AND the Avengers, who are my favorite team of all time. Which, btw, I'm not opposed to some costume changes...Scarlett Witch and Hawkeye look shite. In fact, they all are wearing rubber foam, but it's just so damn cute and campy I can't resist!

    This is what happens...

    by RickSlamu2

    When the Avengers get hard up for members! Reminds me of all thoes issues when they where looking for members and getting turned down hand over fist!
