    This business with the Helicarrier pennant-numbering is one of those instances where you wish viral marketing using "in-universe" documents to explain the backstory were more of a habit with Marvel.

    (Really hoping those ships get names on-camera.)

    ^ I'd like to see some viral marketing on all the upgrades to the new Helicarriers as well, besides the obvious like the new cannon turrets all over the place and the Iron-Man-style repulsors replacing the lift-fans.

    They could easily have something similar to Trek '09's website with the profiles on characters and essential ships/equipment.

    A short couple of minute long 'presentation' narrated animatic of the carriers, quinjets, SHIELD weapons and equipment would be nice.

    All in the SHIELD theme, it would work well to bridge the series and movies. You could sneak new pages and hints onto it each time a film comes up, make specifically filmed clips.

    I would be up for that stuff too.

    Do we know how big of a role Sharon Carter is going to play yet? I'm a huge Emily VanCamp fan thanks to Revenge, and I was really looking to seeing her in this, but so far all we've seen is one quick flash in one trailer. I'm starting to wonder if it is a fairly minor role.

    An early screening of the film just got good reviews. I hope so. So far the MCU is entertaining but pretty shallow overall. Hopefully this film will examine in more depth the world the MCU takes place in.

    It's been said to be a smaller part aimed at setting up future appearances. We don't have many details about it beyond that.

    Looks like Marvel has revealed its mystery movie that had been set for May 6, 2016: It's Captain America 3.

    Just to remind everyone, Warner Bros. has also staked out this same weekend for their Batman/Superman crossover movie. It's going to be interesting to see which studio blinks first.

    Ha! I figured WB would be the ones to move. :lol:

    Gotta say, I love the confidence Marvel is showing in TWS by announcing its sequel before it even debuts. They must be feeling really good about it.

    "Project Insight"...talk of stopping threats before they happen...my theory over in the SHIELD thread could have some merit....
    Maybe SHIELD has a psi division that's classified behind a very high security level...hence the conspicuous party line about there being no proof of mental powers in the MCU.

    It's not uncommon

    http://splashpage.mtv.com/2013/10/02/amazing-spider-man-3-screenwriters/

    And Sony did they with "Amazing Spider-man" too


    It's a mix of "confidence" and striking while the iron's hot.

    Ofcourse "Green Lantern" also announced a sequel even before the first movie debuted


    Marvel has real confidence in what the Russo brothers brought to the table for "Captain America 2"

    Yeah, it's pretty common. I'm pretty sure they also announced the a second The Mortal Instruments movie before the first one was released, and we all saw how that turned out (or didn't).

    So, I was watching Crisis on NBC and a commercial came on for Winter Soldier which gave away a huge spoiler. I don't particularly care myself, and there have been some vague hints about this thing in other promos that could give it away if you were watching all of them, but if I was someone trying to stay spoiler free I'd be pissed that they gave something so major away at the start of a commercial which you'd have no advance warning to avoid.

    In the commercial, Cap solemnly says to Black Widow that "Fury's last words were not to trust anyone." This no doubt follows the scene where Black Widow is sad about the body on the examination table under the sheet, which no doubt follows the scene where Fury is shown severely wounded in the hospital.

    Yeah, about that...

    There is a shot from the second trailer where Cap is talking to Nick and saying "You told me not to trust anybody", and Nick looks pretty beat up. This would obviously be after Nick said this as his "last words". I'm guessing that the Nick that "dies" is an LMD.

    Well, if that's the case, I'm glad they didn't give away such a major spoiler (or did it as a twist).
