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

I am looking forward to the skrulls. what would be really cool is that these avenger movies would lead into a relaunch of the fantastic four and we get the super skrull.

I'm curious to see how the Skrulls will be rendered in CGI, though that will probably be quite a while until any images begin to appear. In fact, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if the studio attempts to keep their 'look' secret until the film's release.

I'm sure they'll look human at first, then look human with weird chins and then full on Star Trek style prosthetic makeup looking Skrulls.

In the Blastr article I linked to up thread they assumed that the names for Cobie Smulders' character/s were one person. But I have to wonder if perhaps they are two totally separate characters. It wouldn't be the first times someone played a human character, and then an unrelated alien created through makeup or CGI MoCap.

Just watched Marvel's The Consultant short film...Clark Gregg is simply awesome.

The concept art work for "Avengers" is awesome. I'm really hoping for an art book like we got for Cap and Thor (still haven't got those yet).

@timothy as I've stated before Fox owns the rights to the Fantastic Four so we won't be unfortunately seeing them. I'm kind of surprised we got the Skrulls to be honest I'd thought they'd be under the FF rights.

From what I've heard, Marvel owns the Skrulls, and Fox owns the Super-Skrull. I don't know if that's true or not, though.

^ That sounds like it would be the case. I think Marvel owns the Kree as well.

Heh. That was cool. Coulson is awesome. However, I wish that they would've used the entire end sequence from TIH. There could've only been a few seconds left.

Interesting that when Stark meets with Ross that it was...

Indeed. Look at Andy Serkis in King Kong; he wore the mo-cap suit for Kong, then appeared as the ship's cook as well.

I hope they don't go completely motion capture CGI though. I kind of hope Joss Whedon somewhat stays with his TV production roots and goes with prosthetics like he did on Buffy and Angel. I'm sure there's a way to make them look realistic enough without looking kind of cheesy or cheap.

I'm curious about who's doing the mo-cap for Hulk; is it Ruffalo, as he hinted, or are they using a series of stunt-men?

And I'm glad that Ferrigno is getting to voice him, even though it may be only one or two lines.
