So is Wakanda essentially a Bantustan?
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.
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...
Firsts pics from Johannesburg.
Based on the picture in that link, Wakanda is home to the Thundercats?
There's also this btw
Filming foiled by the UK floods
Although the link does say "according to The Sun"......
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!
Either the first description of the Vision costume or total bullshit...
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.
On March 18, ABC will airing a one-hour documentary called "Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe", which will include, among other things, a preview of AoU.
"Bone dry"?? Check your facts.
Furthermore, I happen to live in southern England, Hampshire to be precise; and the river here has burst its banks to the point that roads and properties are flooded, the water supplies unuseable, and I've as a result had to stay elsewhere for the last fortnight.
So kindly shut the hell up.
As do I, luckily though, I haven't been too affected by the wet weather and I assume that the news website, which is the BBC for Surrey has been updated in the two weeks since I posted what you quoted or you just didn't check the page. I was trying to make a joke (with a hint of irony) and point out that just because it was in the sun, it doesn't mean that this time, it was wrong.
I'll just assume it was far too subtle for you to comprehend and I accept your apology when it's forthcoming.
Interview with Thomas Kretschmann, who has a small role as Baron Wolfgang von Strucker in AoU, revealed that there are apparently larger plans for the character down the road.
Strucker in a Captain America 3 seems the obvious fit.
Yeah, Captain America 3 does make sense. I'm surprised he's going to get away in Avengers 2 if that's the case.
I also am still holding out a sliver of hope that he can appear in Agents of SHIELD in the build up to Avengers 2.
Maybe they capture him in AV2 and he gets a jailbreak in between. I think sometimes in comic book stories the villains escape jail
Surely such is a very rare, nay freak occurrence! Akin to people returning from the dead...
Scarlett Johansson is Pregnant
So how will this affect her screentime in Avengers 2?
Why can't the Widow kick ass with a pregnant belly? Maybe Hawkeye shagged her.
They've already started filming, haven't they? If so, her screen time probably won't be affected much at all. She might want to take it easy on any physically demanding stunts, but you'd think they'd be done filming before she started to show.
