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

there certainly is in Captain America considering Fury doesn't appear until the last... what? three minutes?

oh, and he doesn't interact with Thor at all and Coulson's not trying to recruit him, he doesn't appear in The Incredible Hulk and come on, he only appears in a 3-5 minute post credits cameo in IM1...

I've just seen Shaft, and there's this scene where Christian Bale walks out of his private jet and gets into his limo, and then Samuel L. Jackson talks to him out of the shadows. That was awesome.

They should merge the Avengers with Batman, I don't care about the DC and Marvel distinction.

The closest thing to a recruitment in Thor was when Thor told Coulson that he and SHIELD could count him as an ally, but he rushed back to Asgard before they could talk more about it.

You mean, Batman isn't going to be in The Avengers?

Seriously though, I'm surprised someone out there hasn't done some mash-up parody of scenes from Shaft dubbing over Jackson and Bale's lines with stuff from their comic book counterpart roles.

Wasn't Bale an infant when Shaft came out?

It's about 25-30 seconds, easily clocked on your DVD's counter.


Tony Stark: [arriving home] Evening, JARVIS!
Jarvis: [voice distorted] Welcome home, sir...
[Stark stops as he sees a figure in his living room]
Nick Fury: "I am Iron Man". You think you're the only superhero in the world? Mr. Stark, you've become part of a bigger universe. You just don't know it yet.
Tony Stark: Who the hell are you?
Nick Fury: Nick Fury. Director of SHIELD.
Tony Stark: Ah.
Nick Fury: I'm here to talk to you about the Avenger Initiative.

Seriously, the only Marvel movie in which build-up/crossover/continuity with Avengers was a little on the gratuitous side was Iron Man 2. Frankly, as much as I like both ScarJo and the Black Widow, all she really added to the movie was some eye-candy and a gratuitous action scene.

Oh, that wasn't really a complaint, merely an observation.

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

Actually Black Widow played a much more significant role than just kicking ass and looking good. 'Tasha was meant to bring Stark out of his funk and help him to realize the hero and leader he can be. Fury's conversation with Tony at the donut shop was just the start of this, it is really Tasha's conversation with Tony later near the end of the film when they're talking about the Avengers Initiative that hits any real cord with him.

I suspect 'Tasha is going to have quite a large role in "Avengers" and seems to have some rather interesting scenes with Bruce Banner.

The best scene in that movie is the seconds-long bit where she's changing in the car and we see her great, delicious, creamy thighs swinging around in the back as she changes her pants.

Ohhhh, ScarLo. You were sooooo great in that movie.

They should give Oscars out to women purely on wank material they provide.

It was more like a "Shaft: TNG" considering that Roundtree reprised his role.
