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

It will be intresting to see the end of "Captain America: First Avengers" and any post credit sequence ties into "Avengers".

I think it should be and will be Rogers. He's the heart and soul of the team. Tony maybe the current team leader of the Avengers in the books but he's not that embedded in the Marvel Movie Universe yet. I'll be disappointed if it's not Steve.

Steve has to be the leader of the Avengers. He's supposed to be the glue that holds them all together. I don't want Tony to be in charge; I want to see "The Avengers," not "Iron Man and the Avengers."
I dunno, they make Tony-as-leader work in Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, while also planting the seeds for Cap to take over. Personally I'd be have if Tony started out as leader but eventually conceded the position to Cap.

^But recall that currently in the movie-verse, Stark isn't even up for a spot on the team. He's a "consultant". I'm willing to bet that Stark's arc in the movie will largely be in just convincing Fury just to put him on the team at all. Leadership would be the last thing Fury would OK.

I never said anything about Tony being the leader of the team in the movie, I just pointed out that he was simply the leader of the team in the current books. Leadership of the team in the movie should go to Cap.

I don't care about cheese. It's iconic. It has to be there. One of my favorite parts of The Incredible Hulk was "Hulk Smash!" Ditto for Ben Grimm's "It's Clobberin' Time!" Besides, since when has cheese ever scared Joss Whedon?

(I can't remember, has Hugh Jackman's Wolverine ever said "I'm the best there is at what I do..." ect?)
Not that I recall but he has used a token word associated with him at least once I recall: Bub.

I think it was X2, during the midnight raid at the school. "I don't know who you are but you picked the wrong house bub *snikit*

As for Avengers Assemble I could see it being said just not shouted as they run out into battle. It could for sure be worked in and utilized in a manner that doesn't evoke cheese but it should be there in some manner.

Wolverine's "best there is..." is really clunky for a catchphrase; the various other media don't really use it, and it doesn't show up in the comics a tremendous amount either. "Bub" is his signature verbal tic.

Wolverine also said "bub" in the first movie, during his fight with Sabretooth: "Hey, bub, I'm not finished with you yet!"

SPOILERS within at the link. Read at your choosing.

How S.H.I.E.L.E.D. is seen in The Avengers and what agents we'll see along with tech and vehicles.

New details about the clandestine organization that plays a pivotal role in the upcoming ensemble superhero film have been passed along by a source working on it's New Mexico set.
The Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division -- also known as S.H.I.E.L.D. -- has been the "glue" binding the Marvel Cinematic Universe together; but with The Avengers, fans will get to see the clandestine organization at full strength. A source close to the film's production has shared a few tidbits of information regarding their upgraded presence in the project: *begin link if you choose*

Wolverine said his signature phrase in Origins.

Awesome. I was hoping Valentina would be in the film.

Little bit of Avengers-related news, which I've already mentioned in the Thor thread. It appears that the post-credits scene in Thor was directed by Whedon, not Branagh.

Makes me wonder if the post-credits scene in Iron Man 2 was directed by Branagh, rather than Favreau.

Probably, since it seems it was just a straight lift of a sequence from the movie itself.

Right. Of course, this also makes me wonder if the Hawkeye scene in Thor was directed by Whedon. I thought that was very clearly added in after the fact, and one of Hawkeye's lines sounded very Whedony.
