    Not that I recall but he has used a token word associated with him at least once I recall: Bub.

    I think it was X2, during the midnight raid at the school. "I don't know who you are but you picked the wrong house bub *snikit*

    As for Avengers Assemble I could see it being said just not shouted as they run out into battle. It could for sure be worked in and utilized in a manner that doesn't evoke cheese but it should be there in some manner.

    Wolverine's "best there is..." is really clunky for a catchphrase; the various other media don't really use it, and it doesn't show up in the comics a tremendous amount either. "Bub" is his signature verbal tic.

    Wolverine also said "bub" in the first movie, during his fight with Sabretooth: "Hey, bub, I'm not finished with you yet!"

    SPOILERS within at the link. Read at your choosing.

    How S.H.I.E.L.E.D. is seen in The Avengers and what agents we'll see along with tech and vehicles.

    Awesome. I was hoping Valentina would be in the film.

    Little bit of Avengers-related news, which I've already mentioned in the Thor thread. It appears that the post-credits scene in Thor was directed by Whedon, not Branagh.

    Makes me wonder if the post-credits scene in Iron Man 2 was directed by Branagh, rather than Favreau.

    Probably, since it seems it was just a straight lift of a sequence from the movie itself.

    Right. Of course, this also makes me wonder if the Hawkeye scene in Thor was directed by Whedon. I thought that was very clearly added in after the fact, and one of Hawkeye's lines sounded very Whedony.

    ^^^^
    Doubt it. We do know Whedon got to tinker with the Captain America script a bit but AFAIK he didn't touch the Thor one. Are you referring to the line, "I'm starting to root for this guy."

    It was directed by Branagh, albeit some time after the rest of the movie had finished. I think he shot the bits with Coulson first and then Renner came in afterwards and did his bit. That's why Hawkeye never interacts directly with any other cast members. I don't have a link but I did read an interview with Branagh about this and he mentioned how happy he was to work with Renner.

    Ah, cool, thanks for the info. :techman:

    And yeah, Captain Craig, that was the line I was thinking of.

    Comicbookfilm is using a Twitter posting by someone claiming to be on set of filming for The Avengers. The user handle is @Lionheart3rd, decide for yourself if these are statements to get excited about.

    I don't know if the author of this article knows something we don't or has only made the same type assumption regarding a teaser as many others have. Filming is underway and Captain America opens 60+ days after so something, anything small could be used as a teaser.

    Not sure where to put this without starting a new thread, so I figured this would be close enough.

    Looks like Cap's modern day costume is going to be a bit closer to the comic book version than his World War II costume.
