    The difference, however, is that Marvel did offer Norton a certain amount of creative control to get him on board TIH (which up to then, was widely assumed to be destined as a cheap direct-to-DVD sequel to the Ang Lee movie, with little-known stars on board). Norton is known for being demanding in terms of his influence on movies (American History X for one) but he also has a certain amount of experience as a director and for having creative input. We'll never know the full story, but it was a little rich of Marvel to lure him on board with promises of creative input, then to drop him for wanting to have, you know, creative input.

    The difference also is that Norton was the star of TIH, while Howard was playing a supporting role. And finally, the difference also is that Howard was dropped over money, pure and simple. Norton certainly has never been a 'take the money and run' actor.

    As the piece says, "and dare to run the Disney legal gauntlet".
    But hey some fool will pony up if only to leak stuff out systematically over the next 15 months.

    The Avengers will introduce a new costume for Captain America!

    I guess it was pretty obvious they would give him a modernized version of his suit.

    Yes, makes sense. Though I'm really loving that retro one from the CA solo movie.

    What exactly makes it retro? Looks very modern to me.

    ^ I think it looks very period. It has the look and shape of a WWII US army outfit. The chunky material, the shape of the helmet, the straps and chunky boots. I really like it, like I say, but I imagine that the Avengers one will be much more streamlined and lighter-looking.

    This looks modern to you? The Hydra Soldiers kind of look a little modern though. Actually on second thought they look like they would have a few years ahead of us.

    ^ Yes, that looks very modern, with the exception of the gun belt.

    In the Avengers movie Cap renounces his American citizenship and goes with a nice Scottish tartan. :lol:

    It's been reported that production has shut down on The Avengers while rewrites are being performed due to the script leak.

    If this is true I'd rather them just try and ignore it, if it leaks it leaks. Most of the people who would read the leak would most likely go and see it anyway. Of course, changing the film does make the leaked script lose a lot of its value.

    Sounds bullshit too from all my script resources as well. This is different from the "Thor" leak which actually had one of the previous drafts.

    Here are some not-especially-exciting location photos. Looks not unlike the Earthly settings in Thor, if you ask me.

    I wonder if this is an above ground cover for a subterranean S.H.I.E.L.D. base. The giant hole could be where Hulk escapes. Or maybe this is where Thor hit's Hulk knocking him through a bodega.
