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

The Scarlet Witch needs a proper outfit for any future missions as a member of the Avengers. Don't know what Joss Whedon has in mind when it comes to this.

Zack Snyder is very appreciative of the way superheroes look in the comic books, and Watchmen's costume designs were quite faithful to the original graphic novel. Now Snyder has presented Wonder Woman and she looks terrific. She's recognizable as Wonder Woman. Snyder and his designers didn't run away from the comic books. I hope Whedon has noticed. Do we really want Wanda to be running around in a black skirt when she and team face Thanos? Maybe Whedon really hates tights and capes. Fine. Still, there must be a way to modernize Scarlet Witch while honoring her traditional costume.

Well, I think it's partly drawn from the Ultimates version as well, which had black pants. Really, my only regret is a lack of tiara. That being said, she seems to still be in the pre-costume stage given that she's pretty much just been living her life to survive. I think there's room to give her more of a costume for Avengers 3.

Also, from the impression that I get, she and Pietro will spend most of the movie in an antagonistic role towards the Avengers. We might not not see her "superhero" suit until the end.

There is something disturbing about seeing that monogram on that prop, knowing what story purpose the prop was designed for.

Further: that is not to say that the sense of disturbance is a bad thing. Not in this context.

I really hope they release the footage in some form online officially. It sounds pretty awesome.

So it seems Cobie Smulders is really in the cast. Her character Maria Hill works for Stark now. Prediction: Shit happens inside Stark's lab, and Maria nearly becomes Ultron's first casualty.

I wonder just how tough the Ultron drones are going to be in this movie. After all, Marvel Studios doesn't have the rights the adamantium, and I don't really see how Stark Industries could have a massive stockpile of vibranium.

They could make up any bullshit metal - it's not a problem that isn't solved in one line of dialogue.

Wait, the term "adamantium" was not nor can be used to describe Cap's shield?

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

Cap's shield is vibranium and FOX has the rights to adamantium because of Woverine/X-Men, so no.

Adamantium was supposed to be created in experiments trying to recreate vibranium, so I suppose they could create something else, like "really tough-ium" in movie continuity if they want an indestructible Ultron.

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

I'm pretty sure Marvel didn't invent the word "adamantium" nor used it as a term for a strong metal alloy first, so I don't see how it could be exclusive to the X-Men.

In fact, looking it up, not only am I right about that, but the metal made its first Marvel appearance in an Avengers comic, referring to Ultron.

The Iron Man suits are as strong as the plot requires - there seems to be some drift certainly between the first film and the third - and that can all be explained away a million different ways. I imagine the construction of Ultron will be the same way.
