    ^ My guess is the former. Had Marvel wanted Norton back, he'd be back. I mean, for the sake of argument, if Whedon wanted to cast DB Woodside as Nick Fury (borrowing Xander's eyepatch) or Alexis Denisof as Iron Man, do you think Feige would let him?

    Come on, don't give the Whedon-haters any more ammo - 'Hey, Norton ain't coming back as Hulk because of that douchebag Whedon! He even said it himself'

    Does it really matter at this point? What's done is done.

    This link is mostly comprised of stuff already in the thread (the Ruffalo, Whedon interviews) as well as a dodgy rumour that Morena Baccarin will be joining the cast as Wasp. Well, it makes a change from the usual Nathan Fillion rumours.

    The Avengers is about to begin set construction.
    The reality of the film moves that much more closer to reality!! :techman:

    Eric Bana admits he could be jealous of Ruffalo and The Avengers cast.
    I don't know how they won't have fun on set. RDJ and Chris Evans cracking wise with Sam Jackson. I imagine the set is going to be full of camaraderie, sorry Eric.

    On the Iron Man 2 commentary Favreau says that he would like to see Johansson get her own movie as Black Widow.

    Some early concept art for the SHIELD helicarriers has made its way online.

    I fully disagree with this writer. This design looks similar enough to what I've seen in the comics. My only question is if they want 'real world' then yes they'll but the carriers in water. Ala 'Iron Man' being just believable. However once you have Cap & Thor as more surrealistic elements do you care if its a flying hellicarrier or not?

    They wouldn't put rotors on it if they didn't intend it to fly at some point in the film. But I could easily see them starting off with the carrier (just one helicarrier, please) in the water, and having it take off be a 'big moment' in the movie.

    Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

    i prefer the Ultimate helicarriers; it's an aircraft carrier with four Stark Industries engines bolted on the sides

    Personally, I'm glad they're using the original (in every sense of the word) Jack Kirby Helicarrier design as a starting point. It just wouldn't feel like S.H.I.E.L.D. to me without it. :techman:

    I think the design looks pretty cool...and one aspect of the film that I'm looking forward to seeing.

    But y'know what I really want to see?

    The flying car.

    It's 2013 its time for a fuckin' flying car. Hell Nick Fury had a flying car back in 1968. He should have arrived at Stark's house in IM2 with a flying car outside the balcony.

    "You can fly. So can I."

    ^ Isn't that more associated with Mr Fantastic though?

    Ultimate Fury doesn't even use a flying car, he just ... hovers... usually, just when Bendis writes him, funnily enough...

    Nah, the FF flew in a bathtub. Fury had a sports car.

    Why is that?

    PS - And a big HELL YES on the S.H.I.E.L.D. flying cars! I still fantasize about having one whenever I get stuck in traffic!

    Out doing a press junket for Due Date Robert Downey Jr says the Avengers script is "Fantastic".
    Short 44sec clip with not much more than that informational wise.

    You'd expect to him say it's great I suppose, I just hope it really is. The Whedon fan in me doesn't see how it can't be.

    I wonder if we'll see any version of Iron Man's Hulkbuster armor in the film.

    Anyone who has followed the Marvel Studios productions is well aware of their penny pinching. Regardless if you think the blame each time is entirly their own.
    It seems once again that a tight grip on the purse strings may cause some problems for The Avengers.
    Who's not to say this is good sense fiscally. I know I've looked at movies before and said, "Really it cost that much? I don't see it on the screen."

    $140 million? Heck, Inception cost more ($160 million).
