No, what is important is a good story and faithfulness to the original material. Worrying about gender balance or ethnic balance or "power balance" sounds like that political correctness crap that is ruining this country.

Thanks for the irrelevant contribution. Who said they wanted anything to the contrary?
I'm guessing it's this. He still hasn't learned to match his reply to the original comment.

And if it was in the wrong place, well, doesn't that mean it was irrelevant?

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

i have to admit, when i saw the trailer at the end of Captain America, i felt like standing up in the cinema and shouting AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!

i resisted the temptation, however...

Collider via Yahoo!Movies has printed, with permission one assumes, some slowed down images from The Avengers teaser post-credits Captain America.




That lighting is absolutely terrible. It looks like a pilot for a television show. I hope these are shots that haven't been properly color-corrected yet, because that just looks silly.

Lighting looks fine to me. It's a bit dark and muted, but that's no different from the Thor or Captain America movies.

You can't exactly have a bunch of guys in colorful costumes walking around a brightly lit set, after all.

The pics and video are awesome. I so cannot wait for this movie.

I've always kind of liked Hank Pym, but I think that he has come into his own in recent years in Slott's Mighty Avengers and Gage's Avengers Academy.

I don't know if it's true or not but I read that Gwyneth Paltrow might have a cameo as Pepper Potts which got me wishing there could be a scene with Paltrow's Potts,Nataile Portmans Jane Foster and Liv Tylers Betty Ross where they "compare notes" or are captured by the bad guys and instead of waiting to be rescued they free themselves and kick ass.

I know it would be unrealistic (and expensive)to have them appear but it would be cool if they could do it.

@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.
Excluding Ant-Man wouldn't mean squat to even the most hardcore fans. They may have brought it up but that doesnt mean any fan is gonna boycott the movie because Ant-Man isnt in it.

That still does not mean "no one cares about him". No one is going to boycott the film because of missing characters.That'd be silly.

@Timby most of those shots lighting looks fine since I assume they take place in darkened rooms in the S.H.I.E.L.D. Hellicarrier.

Am I the only one who thinks that Scarlet Johansson is tremendously overrated? She's not that hot and her acting lacks any sense of charisma.

I feel the same way. She's a forced beauty as opposed to natural beauty. Just because she has big breasts doesn't mean she's hot, but many other guys seem to think otherwise.

And yet she was perfect as Black Widow, one of the highlights and funnest things of Iron Man 2. Go figure.

P.S. Actually, she's gorgeous.

How is Scarlett Johannson a "forced" beauty? I get the overrated commented, that seemed reasonable. StarTrek1701 are you trying to say you feel she's manufactured? If so you could probably say that about most of the actresses in Hollywood and music then.

I think she is gorgeous myself and not just because of her chest size. I was skeptical of her playing Natasha until I saw her in "Iron Man 2". I would love her even more if we saw her speak with a Russian accent in "Avengers" or even some Russian.
