Good picture of Cap. Looks like one of the scenes shot here in Cleveland.

Odd that all the characters standees feature the actors faces, except for Caps. Even Iron Man is sans helmet.

That comment or similar I think was brought up in "Thor" where fans were complaining that Hemsworth didn't have his helmet on enough. I think the responses was something like...well they're trying to sell their stars, not just the characters. Seems to be the same case in this movie as well.

So Evans isn't a star?

^ LOL. Oop. He is indeed a star. I was just referring to "Thor" because it was a big deal in that particular thread. It was probably brought up in the Cap thread as well.

Last I heard it all went to his head and he demanded way too much money.
The question is what "too much money" is. Overall, it's just an "oh well" moment. It would have been lots of fun.

Over at the SuperHeroHype Boards there is a "report" that reads as a 'Friend, of a Friend who works at "x" saw some footage'.
I provide this only as speculation AND/OR rumor but it was a fun read if nothing else.


Thoughts?

The part about the Hulk makes some sense considering the ending of The Incredible Hulk where it is implied Banner has gained some form of control over the Hulk persona...

If that report is true, then I'm even more psyched for this movie than before. It sounds like great stuff.

I can't wait until we get the second trailer.

I really like that costume. Kind of a perfect mesh between his 616 and Ultimate costumes, It makes sense that this film would have Steve as the central character given what we saw at the end of "Captain America: The First Avenger". I still think the main dynamic/story is going to be between the big three learning to work with one another and be the leaders of the team...with Steve ultimately stepping up to the plate and exclaiming those famous iconic words "AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!!!".
Yeah. It's looking like the complaints about ditching his First Avenger 40's uniform were (gasp) yet another knee-jerk overreaction regarding comic hero movie costumes. Who could have guessed?

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

Found 2 more pieces of finalized concept art work about the 'net today for The Avengers film coming this May.

This first one is more like one we've seen already. More of a marketing type artwork.


This second one is a bit more SPOILER-IFIC so I'm going to code it. It's a partial look at allegedly the finalized concept artwork for how the SHIELD Hellicarrier is going to look/operate during a sequence in the film.

They(Marvel) still tried to mask certain things hence the "looking through slated blinds" appearance.

That first panel is pre-action imo.
The second panel is mid-action as the Helicarrier goes from static to active mode.
The third panel feels more like you're looking up at the underside of it.
The fourth, still underneath, seems to show a partial backside look at it as it's moving away.

Thoughts?

Sounds about right, her registry is "87" implying shes part of the United States carrier numbering system, the font is identical.

What we can see of that is really cool looking. It looks to me to be a good mix of realistic, but with the comic booky twist that we seem to be getting in the Marvel movies.

I actually like that piece better than the other one. Those Hellicarrier sketches look great.
