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

I have a 3D tv which will play 3D blu-rays (obviously) but will also adjust to allow you to watch in 3D movies which weren't actually made in that format. Obviously, the quality isn't as good as it is with movies designed to be watched that way - the tv's just running an algorithm to deceive your eyes.

The best picture tends to be on animated movies (I have 2 kids) - Despicable Me looks amazing.

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

Yeah animated stuff looks awesome in 3D (or even a good 1080p) I've got a 1080p monitor and when I watch some animated shows it looks just amazing and I totally agree about Despicable Me. I was watching it in a Best Buy a while back in 3d and wow, that's just a treat. I think animated 3D converts much more easily since it's already sorta 3D from the get-go, just a matter of converting the depth field. And Monsters Vs Aliens in 3D omgsh... that's awesome.

Live action stuff really doesn't do it as well, unless it's something heavily CGI to begin with. Now Star Wars Episode 1 in 3D it seemed to add more 'depth' like you were going 'inside' of it more than it coming 'out' at you. Like in the pod race scenes, it felt like you were seeing the stuff in the distance as it would be if you were actually in it. So that was pretty cool. Or even some of the laser blasts. But since it wasn't designed for it, that's about all you can do.

Now I saw Thor and Captain America and the Avengers in 3D and honestly the only one I felt really kind of used the 3D as I expected it was Captain America. Avengers had a bit too much action to really enjoy the 3D imagery. Thor was alright in 3D but didn't super-impress me honestly. I watched it enough times in 2D at home to realize that other than a few times where the 3D added more depth, it's no more than using an IMAX camera added to the realism. Like say in Dark Knight, it almost felt 3d even on a 2d CRT TV which was pretty interesting.

I like the "window into the scene" effect that you get from Avatar and Prometheus. That's how it should be, and that's how it's going to be in the majority in the future. That "coming right at you" stuff is just the gimmick, just like they overuse color filters or exaggerate sounds or use shaky cam or something.

According to Blastr, Joss Whedon has started hinting that he might bring Wasp into the MCU in Avengers 2.

So she won't be part of the Ant-Man movie?
Kinda sounds odd at face value.
Does it not?

Unfortunately, the tendency for people in positions of power to be huge greedheads isn't dying anytime soon.

My tendency to not give a shit on 3D or pay more for it will not be changing soon either.

That was my first thought too. Maybe they'll go the Hawkeye route and introduce in a smaller role in Ant-Man and then develop her more in A2. It does seem weird that they wouldn't include in Ant-Man in some form, but then include her in A2.

I don't think Ant-Man is strong enough as a character to have his own movie, at least not without Wasp with him.

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

I do believe taking Wasp out of the Ant-Man movie would indeed lessen the film in some way. She's been there from nearly the beginning. Plus, not to sound cliche, if she's not the female lead and love interest whose going to fill that roll? Hank needs Jan for balance in many respects.

I think she'll end up in the Ant-Man movie. This is perhaps a misunderstanding of Whedon's intent for her with TA2

Will the Ant-Man flick be out before Avengers 2? If so, maybe they'll sorta do what the Avengers cartoon did and have Jan on the team while Hank isn't interested and sticks to the lab.

According to the current schedule, Ant-man will be released before Avengers 2. Many people think Ant-man will be in the Avengers sequel.
