elvindeath: I'm hoping they also have time to release "Black Widow goes down on Pepper Pots for an hour forty in 3-D IMAX" before then as well. I predict that will be - by far - the most financially successful of the Avengers Universe movies.


What's hotter, scarjo eating Paltrow, or the other way around?

Flint Ironstag: Techhell: I hope this time they write an actual plot for the movie, and someone teaches Whedon how to write for Thor and Cap.

The "plot" for The Avengers was the group getting together and learning how to work together. All the "aliens invade" crap was just the B story.

You try to have lots of characters to introduce and get to know each other and a complicated plot and you'll end up with a mess.


Like I said. I hope next time they have an actual plot for the movie, because the plot for the first one sucked.

And the lots of characters getting to know one another was a mess in the Avengers as it was anyway. Whedon can't write for characters like Captain America and Thor - they just don't fit his writing style at all. Every time they were on the screen was painful. Which came close to ruining the movie for me; I actually came to like Thor and Cap in their own movies against my inborn "meh" attitude toward them in the comics. To see Whedon painfully misuse them isn't something I'm going to give him a pass for just because Hulk got to smash Loki.

Six_By_Nine: Flint Ironstag: neither he, nor us, saw it coming.

That moment was telegraphed by its very existence. It was hardly an "oh snap" moment.

If Black Widow could not contribute by gathering information, she would not have been talking to Loki. The scene would have had no purpose. So, sorry to say, if you didn't see that moment coming, you haven't watched a lot of movies.


Eh, they did leave enough ambiguity in the scene to make it much less telegraphed. We knew that Widow and Hawkeye were an item, and that Widow wanted him back, so there was the possibility that the movie might have tried to add a bit more depth to Widow instead of reinforcing what we had already been seen. Knowing the Whedon was the director, I half-expected that to be the case - here he has a perfect opportunity to do what he does best (write for spunky, morally ambiguous female characters) and he took the more obvious route.

So I don't think it was quite as easily telegraphed as you're saying it was.

NeoCortex42: Dimensio: The movie will be nothing but credits, followed by an extended stinger featuring Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury assembling the heroes for Avengers 3. 

/obscure?

Spider-Man has been rebooted six times since you started writing that comment.


The 3rd, 4th and 5th were part of a single movie split in three, so it's only been rebooted 4 times. However there is a brand new reboot being shot in Toronto right now starring Justin Beiber as Peter Parker, so by the time this comment gets posted it will be 5 times.

I think we all know who the next character is, since most of us saw freakin' Thanos in the end credits.

I may be in the minority, but I myself didn't find that scene very compelling or noteworthy. Scarlett can handle the action scenes, but she is a god awful actress that seems to only have one setting.

I didn't think TDKR was a terrific movie, but seeing Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle made me wish we had that caliber of actress for the BW role. Someone who can be a convincing spy.

I heard about the Avengers 2 release date on Facebook earlier today. All well and good.

This link mentions a Guardians of the Galaxy movie, which is news to me, and I know nothing about that group. So that seems more worthy of discussion.

The quality of AVENGERS 2 will depend on how good the build up is from the movies that come between
now and then.

I hope Marvel Studios maintains the same sort of editorial control they have been for the first movie
story arc.

Good actress, but my only problem with TDKR was that I was expected to believe that Anne Hathaway can kick a bunch of guys' asses.

Well said. Avengers was really fun because it was the payoff to several movies worth of buildup. They are going to have to build more if A2 is going to be as good.

If you haven't read any of the new Guardians you should. They are at the TOP of my favorite storylines in comics in the last 30 years. Start with Thanos' limited series, then through all the Annihilation wave. Realm of Kings and War of Kings isn't as great, but still has some great arcs, then it ends with Thanos Imperative.

Seriously freakin' excellent.

Are the Shi'ar and Starjammers considered a part of the X-Men property? I'd love to see a Gladiator vs Hulk bout.

You know, I'm not sure. I would assume they would be, but then again, those characters a pretty far removed from the mainstream Marvel Universe, they may not have had to negotiate them. I would guess that the modern Starjammers, Havok and Polaris are included in Xmen property. Ch'od, Hepzibah and Raza were fair game.

Shi'ar haven't had any real involvement with much of anything outside the X books either. That whole Annihilation, War-Realm, Imperative set up was about the only standalone series I can remember them in. They all dealt more with Inhumans and Nova Corps than anything else.
