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

Kevin Feige talks Avengers (and also IM 3 but it's a bit early to start a thread on that movie, IMHO)

http://www.darkhorizons.com/news/210...avengers-focus

Feige also says that "The Avengers" won't have the issues of "Iron Man 2" because it aims to balance out the character ensemble - "The first step in avoiding that was hiring Joss [Whedon, writer-director]. If you look at his body of work, he regularly writes for lots of characters. ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ may be called ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer,’ but it’s really an ensemble piece and none of the characters ever get lost in the spectacle of whatever is going on. The stuff we’ve shot [so far on THE AVENGERS] is cutting together spectacularly and it’s just the character interactions that we’ve done so far—we haven’t shot much of the action sequences yet. I think the end result is going to feel very, very satisfying."
FWIW, the Iron Man talk is as follows:

the focus of the upcoming third film will be back where it belongs - on Tony Stark.
"Audiences will see that Tony Stark is going back into his own world. There will be acknowledgements to the events of 'The Avengers' and the character journey he took there, but he’s not going to be having tea with Thor and calling Nick Fury every five minutes" says Feige, confirming the film will be more of a stand alone and self-contained entry.

Concept art for Cap's Avengers costume?



I think it's legit. The style looks like the same used with the art for Thor's costume and Cap's First Avenger one.

I can't believe that someone would actually spend that much effort on such a trivial subject. The first job of a comic book artist is to provide entertaining visuals, not cater to the demands of archery enthusiasts.

Comic book fans thrive on trivia. Heck, this BBS wouldn't exist if it wasn't that tendency.

And while I'm not an archery enthusiast, I personally find it fascinating & educational to read about. I don't demand that they get every last detail of archery correct, I don't think it's too much to ask that they get the basic things (like not drawing an archer pulling a bowstring over his arm ) right. Really, that's like drawing a basketball player kicking the ball down the court.

Interesting comments from Finge I had not read those, and I like the "Avengers" Cap concept art if that is indeed legit. Kind of looks Ultimatish.

Chris Evans talks about Joss Whedon on Avengers and what he's enjoying about that production and how it moves Steve into present day.

"If something isn't working for you as an actor within the words, he(Joss) can walk away for ten minutes and come back with seven options that are all fantastic and clever and witty and it's got a pace and a banter. He's a great guy to be quarterbacking this thing."

Evans also commented on Captain America's role in The Avengers, which sees the character adjusting to life in the modern-day world.

"The guy has to accept the fact that everyone he knew and loved is gone," he revealed. "Not only is he alone, all his friends are gone, the world has changed too much."

"It's him trying to come to terms with the way things are."
The video interview is at the bottom of the page.

At least archery is a real thing. Just look at the arguments over fictional spaceship design.

^ Yeah, I don't really see the problem with wanting real-life activities like archery to be drawn correctly. I've only ever done it once and even I could see the problem with the pic which Johnny Quest posted.

That's the thing. If the folks who were drawing some of these poses would take a minute to assume them with even a toy archery set, they would realize how impossible most of them are.

But anyway, I'm sure no one's going to be assuming poses like that in the actual movie. Mainly because they're impossible.

An extremely poor-quality bootleg has leaked:



Better watch it before it gets taken down.

I tried to fight the temptation to watch that teaser, and instead wait until I could see it on the big screen, but my inner fanboy eventually won out and I watched it.

And even with the crappy quality, it was awesome!
