Re: AVENGERS - movie Discussion, News, Interviews, Pics till release 2

It's going to be interesting when we catch up with Ruffalo's Banner. I would imagine that he's maybe been working with Shield for the last couple of years since we left him in "The Incredible Hulk". All of those pics are really sweet, I especially am fond of Steve's costume in this. It is like a perfect mesh between his 616 and Ultimate suit. I really want to see a pic of Maria Hill now

I think Shield agents surround Banner's cabin and Iron Man and Thor are there for backup.

Yeah that still doesn't mean he isn't working for them on the side. Like in the first Ultimates arc. Of course he'd have security around him that wasn't what my point was.

It's strange that no one is complaining about the lack of Ant man and the Wasp. I guess people realize that they wouldn't work in the movies (plus Hawkeye and Black Widow are pretty good replacements).

People I did believe complain about the lack of Ant-Man and the Wasp...that was near the start of this thread when casting wasn't finished. I think that we're not getting Pym because of Edgar Wright's long awaited "Ant-Man" movie that he's been working on for the last several years. The two of them could always be in a sequel too.

I don't see why you can't have Henry Pym in the Avengers and then later have him in his own movie. Seriously I don't see how Ant man can work as a superhero (outside of comic relief)

I Like Ant-Man, but I like Yellowjacket more. Be cool if they did an Avengers trilogy with Pym having a different ID in each one.

I always preferred the Vision and the Scarlet Witch to Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Vision and the Scarlet Witch were the "hot couple" when I started reading the Avengers. Sadly I think Wanda ( and Pietro) are somehow tied into the X-Men license so I doubt we'll be seeing her.

Except for the fact that he was one of the founders of the Avengers and some of would like to see the movies at least acknowledge the comics.

Re: AVENGERS - movie Discussion, News, Interviews, Pics till release 2

As such movies are big business and movie time is limited one has to make choices.. include some lesser known and less popular characters or concentrate on some big tentpole characters.. obviously the producers have chosen the latter option.

We might get nods to them as "civilian" characters, i.e. scientists working for Shield or somesuch but the movie will focus on the big characters, i.e. characters they've spent years bulding up.

One thing Marvel did right was to do it their own way and not listen too much to fan demands.. if something wouldn't work in the movies (such as the outlandishly colorful costumes of Superheroes) it will get toned down or changed. So far their formula has paid off and i think Marvel can secretly live with the fact that they're pissing of some die-hard comic book fans for not sticking 100% to the comics (which have been retconned or "updated" so many times themselves that even fans disagree what is the best).

Re: AVENGERS - movie Discussion, News, Interviews, Pics till release 2

@StarTrek1701 what is the basis for making that comment? The fact that someone just brought him and Wasp up in this thread would automatically prove you wrong. They're not A list heroes and the public is probably not aware of them but to say "no one cares about them" is an incorrect statement. Comic book fans that are aware of the characters history to the "Avengers" would care for instance.

I also don't think we have Hank and Janet because they didn't want too large an ensemble cast. There are also secondary and bit characters as well that Joss has to focus on. I've been recently thinking about just how immense this production really is.

One, I was responding to an earlier post and put that in the wrong place. Second, who are you to determine relevance of posts?
