    I have a feeling this has probably been covered, but has any reason been given as to why the decided not to include Ant-Man/Giant Man and Wasp in the movie/s? I'll admit I haven't read any Avengers comics yet, but based of off what I've read online and seen in Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes they seemed to be pretty important members of the team.

    I haven't read an "in story" reason why Hank and Janet aren't involved but I suspect part of it is due to the idea that Marvel still plans to do an Ant-Man solo as part of their smaller budget films that Kevin Freige has mentioned off/on the last few years.

    In THOR the scene where they are on the roof after SHIELD has taken away the research Hank Pym's name was going to be name dropped as the one who was going to be emailed but they decided to cut it since the same scene mentiond a "friend who pioneered gamma science" was also alluded to in that scene. Too much name dropping so they cut it. Hopefully it got filmed and will be part of an extended scene selection.

    i don't think they need an 'in-story' reason. the reason for them not appearing is simply that Edgar Wright failed to get his ass in gear and get Ant-Man made before Marvel decided to move on an Avengers movie in the wake of Iron Man and Incredible Hulk and the plans for IM2, Thor and Cap...

    Avengers has been shooting now for over a month and spy photos from the production have not been a plenty....but we have some S.H.I.E.L.D. vehicles now.

    Still kind of hard to believe we're only a year away from this, now. I haven't been this excited about a movie since The Dark Knight.

    It appears the Pittsburgh area is going to see some second unit filming for The Avengers. TDKR will be filming there also.

    I wonder if PA is offering tax break incentives like Louisiana and that is why both of these films are doing some shooting in the Pittsburgh area?

    Kevin Feige talks Avengers (and also IM 3 but it's a bit early to start a thread on that movie, IMHO)

    FWIW, the Iron Man talk is as follows:

    Concept art for Cap's Avengers costume?

    I think it's legit. The style looks like the same used with the art for Thor's costume and Cap's First Avenger one.

    I can't believe that someone would actually spend that much effort on such a trivial subject. The first job of a comic book artist is to provide entertaining visuals, not cater to the demands of archery enthusiasts.

    Comic book fans thrive on trivia. Heck, this BBS wouldn't exist if it wasn't that tendency.

    And while I'm not an archery enthusiast, I personally find it fascinating & educational to read about. I don't demand that they get every last detail of archery correct, I don't think it's too much to ask that they get the basic things (like not drawing an archer pulling a bowstring over his arm :rolleyes:) right. Really, that's like drawing a basketball player kicking the ball down the court.

    Interesting comments from Finge I had not read those, and I like the "Avengers" Cap concept art if that is indeed legit. Kind of looks Ultimatish.

    Chris Evans talks about Joss Whedon on Avengers and what he's enjoying about that production and how it moves Steve into present day.

    The video interview is at the bottom of the page.

    I just read on ComingSoon.net
    that the post-credits scene is not actually a scene at all, but a teaser for teaser for the Avemgers. Here's a description they have posted.

    At least archery is a real thing. Just look at the arguments over fictional spaceship design.
