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

It's Clark Gregg's awesome portrayal of Coulson that makes the character work for me. From that first time we saw him in "Iron Man" to what he's become now...just one of those weird awesome fan things when we latch onto a character we love I guess.

From shadowy government agent that kept pestering Pepper Potts to glorified government agent.

Agreed. He was always the best part of that New Adventures of Old Christine show, and I've gotten a huge kick out of him in these movies as well.

Other than the fact that it doesn't look like either a Skrull or a Frost Giant?

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

Looks kind of Thanos-y with the crown thing around it's head...we've seen the Infinity Gauntlet in "Thor" and Marvel showed it off at it's MCU display last summer at SDCC, so maybe they're connected to that. There have been rumours since "Thor" that Thanos would appear and have some kind of connection to the Frost Giants. Other than that I have no idea who they could be other than what I suggested above.

A diorama display at a TRU as shown up over at SuperHeroHype with a representation of what Loki's army of unknown/unnamed aliens will be.

Any clues? Does this help. Clearly a 3-toed alien at any rate.

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

As we've been discussing not so far. Knowing Joss' work and knowledge of Marvel, they will be something that have been in the comics before (whatever universe doesn't matter) or with a different name as I've suggested a few times (I think others have suggested as well).

The World Premire is tomorrow. This possibly means that spoilers from this and other early screenings could start to leak out pretty soon as we near May.

Buffy versus Widow? No, Whedon hasn't thought about it at all...

I agree with Joss' fight analysis. Natasha I think also would be too cocky and underestimate Buffy as well.

^Hell yes

Idle speculation as to what's going on in that scene:

I've watched that scene three times, and I've been trying to find a way to formulate what I don't like about it, and I think the best way to put it is: There's no tension. Seriously, there's no tension at all, considering that it's a middle-aged mortal man talking smack to a literal genius, mastermind demigod. It's shot like a pleasant chat between two acquaintances. (And, my God, I don't think the cinematography could be any more lifeless. This scene was lit just as brightly as the forest scene we've seen in the trailers, which was lit just as brightly as the scenes on the Helicarrier that we've seen.)

Hiddleston and Downey, Jr., are clearly trying their damnedest despite how woefully under-directed the whole scene is and how hokey the dialogue is (that whole scene feels like it was written just to be put into a trailer and commercials -- "you can be damn sure we'll AVENGE IT ), but, fuck.
