Gold-titanium alloys are rather brittle anyway, not that a person could do much to a sheet of it by hand, but one average strength adult could sledge hammer it to a lot of tiny pieces just fine. It certainly couldn't stop a high powered bullet.

So they aren't going for any kind of realism to start with, they'll make up whatever name sounds about right and give it whatever properties the plot needs.

Hell even making him out of Ultronium or whatever new element Tony makes in all his spare time.

"Ultronium". I approve of that name.

Of course, the Dr. Horrible sequel is just a palate cleanser before he starts on Avengers 3.

Doctor Horrible is one of the few well known Joss Whedon helmed projects I've never watched (along with that weird Shakespeare adaptation he did). I've never had the slightest desire to watch Neil Patrick Harris sing for 45 minutes, and even Nathon Fillion can't make it something that looks worth my time If Joss Whedon has some free time between Avengers movies, I'd like to see him work on some comics. I loved his Astonishing X-Men and Runaways runs, and it would cool to see him do at least a mini-series for Marvel.

I can't tell if you like Shakespeare or not from your post, but if you do I highly recommend seeing Joss' adaption of "Much Ado About Nothing." It's only weird in the sense that it's a modernized adaption, it's extremely faithful though and also pretty fun.

Well, I meant it was weird in that it seemed like a weird thing for him to do. When it comes to Shakespeare, I can't stand it (I have no ability to decipher what they called "english" in his day, Shakespeare plays are basically done in an alien language). I'd probably like (or at least give a chance to)the stories if someone translated them into a language I could understand Actually, years ago in school we read hamlet, which wasn't too confusing, but it seems like its the exception. If Whedon did a Shakespeare based movie translated to modern english, i'd give it a chance, but I'm definitely not going to watch a normal Shakespeare movie, regardless of setting, unless it is at least kind enough to put modern english subtitles, like almost every movie released in america in a foreign language does

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

Joss Whedon and his actor friends have been regularly getting together and doing Shakespeare for years. "Much Ado About Nothing" was finally his chance to put it on film. The first ten minutes were hard for me because it was just such an odd thing to watch (black and white AND Shakespearean dialogue took some getting used to), but once it got going I really got into it. It was hilarious.

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

Reading Shakespeare is harder than understanding it performed. The meaning is normally quite comprehensible.

I do, however, think there's a lot of rubbish talked about it - I don't see it as being as fantastic as it's cracked up to be. There's a lot of 'the king's new clothes' about the fawning.

And I really hate it performed in modern settings to show how 'relevant' it still is. Swiping the story like 10 Things I Hate About You is fine, but Baz Luhrmann's Romeo and Juliet's a joke.

Whedon's version is worth watching for Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof. They are both fantastic.
