    I once took a year-long screenwriting course in college, in which we'd all read each others' scenes aloud. I was writing a rom-com, with the last scene being a wedding. The teacher was reading my narration bits on that final day, and she got a special script the other readers didn't, and thus read aloud the part where the protagonists from all the other scripts stood waving and cheering as my leads smooched.

    Minds were blown. :rommie:

    The Avengers has now officially passed the $1.4 BILLION mark worldwide. It's still yet to open in Japan for some reason.
    The film is roughly $23.5 million away from $600 million domestically. It should get there in about two weeks at it's current pace even accounting for estimated theater loss. July 4th will be another slight surge for the film. No doubt from those double dipping on their Marvel Cinema experience when they see The Amazing Spider-man.

    It's been delayed because for that market, they are adding post-production effects of the SHIELD heli-carrier changing into a giant robot.

    ALSO NINJAS AND TENTACLE RAPE SCENES. IT'S JAPAN. HA-HA.

    The Avengers will be even bigger in Japan.

    You know, because the Japanese are smaller.

    Storm's only been in the Fantastic 4 other than iterations of the X-Men AFAIK.

    There are other iterations where she's an Avenger. Practically every hero in the Marvel Comics Universe has been an avenger at one point or another. Spider-Man has been an Avenger.

    There have been some really lame members of the avengers over the years - deathcry, two-gun kid (great character but shouldn't be an avenger), Dr. Druid.

    Which is why they had to bring Wolverine, Spider-man into the fold.

    This is how Avengers 2 will handle Spider-Man's cameo!

    No kidding. I had the same reaction in a different thread when someone listed the many different X-Men related titles that are currently ongoing. It's crazy.

    yes, i do believe Spider-Man's running around in aobut 4 books in the main MU as well, (ignoring titles like the USM one based on the cartoon or the Miles Morales starring USM).

    there was a thing on CBR after the DC new 52 shite was announced about what would you do if you were in charge of a Marvel New 52 and a LOT of people were paring things down to 1 Avengers team book, 1 X-Men team book, solo titles for Cap, IM, Thor and Hulk and a Wolverine title and 1 Spider-Man book.
