Re: Avengers 2 News, Rumors, Etc. Pictures until release...

Kevin Feige is keeping Black Widow's character arc on an ever increasing upward trajectory. He discusses her role in Age of Ultron but it's the almost after thought addendum that has me hopeful.

Black Widow solo film!!!

According to Marvel Studios president of production Kevin Feige, Widow's backstory will actually be explored in The Avengers: Age of Ultron

"We start filming the next Avengers film at the end of March," said Feige in the latest issue of Total Film magazine. "[Black] Widow's part in that is very big. We learn more about her past and learn more about where she came from and how she became in that film. The notion of exploring that even further in her own film would be great, and we have some development work with that."
Far from concrete but the notion that it's on the table and "some development" has been done with the possibility is great news.

Ultron probably wants Black Widow as his future bride.

Very cool. I still want Hawkeye to be in her movie, though, because their past would be nice to explore.

We might still see Wakanda in AoU after all.

So is Wakanda essentially a Bantustan?

Re: Avengers 2 News, Rumors, Etc. Pictures until release...

You're kidding, right?

In the comics, the apartheid regime tried to make Wakanda a bantustan. The first outside the physical territory of South Africa, it can be argued (with help from the Marvel Atlas). The Panther of the day and his troops sent them back to Pretoria packed in caskets. More than once, I'm told.

The idea of South Africa playing both itself and Wakanda on-camera sounds entertaining in its own way.

(Do we have any South Africans here at TrekBBS?)

I've been saying for a while that I'd love to see a Black Widow origin movie.

Re: Avengers 2 News, Rumors, Etc. Pictures until release...

Good lord. How is this movie going to heavily feature Black Widow's origins when we already have fourteen major characters and the complete saga of Ultron and The Vision from start to finish?!?!

It sounds impossible... but the first Avengers movie was impossibly jammed full of characters and stories and gags and pay-offs in an amazing way...

Based on the picture in that link, Wakanda is home to the Thundercats?

What a load of bollocks, it's been bone dry in Southern England, no rain what so ever and certainly no floods along the Thames in Surrey!

Re: Avengers 2 News, Rumors, Etc. Pictures until release...

Either the first description of the Vision costume or total bullshit...

“It has a helmet akin to the Iron Man armor, but it’s designed more like a face than a smooth Stark helmet. The iconic yellow and green are present in the design, but it’s more metallic shades than bright ‘comic book colors.’ They said it reminds them somewhat of the T-100 from ‘Terminator 2’ but it’s not as shiny. The yellow metal ‘liquid’ bits seem to light up. This may or may not happen since there are two designs for that section. One lights up the other doesn’t. That’s the only difference. The cape is present, but they say it appears to only ‘pop out’ when in flight mode. The cape sports some similar shades of yellow as the body. The ‘neck pieces’ are the same yellow but they seem to shift positions from “standing” (for lack of a better word) to ‘flight mode’.”

Yeah, this is starting to have a ton of characters. I still trust Marvel, and Joss Whedon though, so I'm not too worried.
What this is, is people who want to see their female fan favorites be crammed into one movie just to suit them without wondering or reasoning how these characters will even fit into the narrative (I've seen this in a few articles, in particular ones about the SHIELD show at the Mary Sue blog)-I wish that people would enjoy the movies and the TV show and trust in the makers of both to do their jobs.
