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

Stellan Skarsgard will be reprising his role of Dr.Selvig that he played in Thor.

...Stellan Skarsgård confirms to TT Spektra that he will play the same role as in the upcoming "Thor": Doctor Selvig. Not much is yet known about the character apart from that Selvig is a scientist in New Mexico.

Also, in other Avengers news(rumor?). Seems the mill is implying that Marvel has shot a secret trailer to debut in front of either Thor or Captain America.
According to the site, the trailer confirms that Thor's brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) will be the main villain. Loki will likely get his hands on the Cosmic Cube, the macguffin of the upcoming "Captain America: The First Avenger", and uses it to bring the shapeshifting alien race The Skrulls to invade Earth.
If there is any, I mean ANY truth to this rumor than I'd think they would wait till A)They have some actual Avengers footage(filming doesn't start till end of the month/April and B)not show it at least in front of Captain America since the Cosmic Cube doesn't appear till then AND Loki will already have debuted and be a known element.

Extras Casting
All Locations:
Maryellen Aviano
“The Avengers” Extras Casting Coordinator
1000 Flower Street
Glendale, CA 91201
Writer/Director:
Joss Whedon

Starring:
Robert Downey Jr. – Iron Man

Story:
A superhero team called “The Avengers” do battle against two separate alien extraterrestrial humanoid life forms. The Avengers are a superhero team, consisting of a group of Marvel Comics heroes aka “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes”. The aliens that The Avengers will fight are called “The Kree” and “Skrulls”. These two extraterrestrial races become embroiled in a war for ages that ultimately makes its way to Earth, and the Avengers unite to intervene with all their power and might combined.
The rumor of the classic Kree/Skull story arc being incorporated has been around for a few months now. Seems they(Marvel) is going to have our team get together first via Hulk but that is going to serve as a segway into the Kree/Skull war via Loki using the cosmic cube. The Cube maybe the tool he uses to control the Hulk?

He might do the Hulk roars, like in the 90s cartoon.

Well, the fact that Marvel has decided to go straight to the Kree/Skrull war at least gives us a clue as to how insanely ambitious and over the top this movie is likely to be.

Let me get this straight... at least three lead characters (really four, counting Fury), a stacked supporting cast, Loki, the Hulk stirring up trouble and then probably joining the party, plus not one but two alien races to introduce as the main villains. Not to mention that having the Kree around probably means Mar-vell will be showing up. Sheesh. Epic win or total train wreck.

I wonder who they will cast as the Kree and Skrull characters? And which characters? Ronan? Mar-Vell? SuperSkrull? The Supreme Intelligence would be CGI, but they'd need a powerfull voice actor.

Colbie Smulders casting is my maybe my favorite to be honest. I'm a big Maria Hill fan and a Colbie fan as well so this is just spot on.

I'll be curious to see her packaged in a form fitting outfit!
Also if it's more in line with what Black Widow wore or more close in design to the standard SHIELD unitard in the comics.


Start shooting in April, which if first of April is days away.
Too close to THOR's release but I bet we get some kind of teaser footage come July with Cap's release.

Hawkeye's costume revealed: basically: Ultimate version, in black. which was how Renner described it in Empire when he mentioned it back before he was officially cast.
