One of the great things about the Marvel movies that led up to the first AVENGERS film is how well they built a consistent universe with seeds planted all along the way leading up to the big epic battle for New York City and the world. The appearance of – SPOILERS! – Thanos during the closing credits suggests they know full well where they’re going next in AVENGERS 2 or 3, but let’s take a look at some past Avengers storylines in the comics that might make for good movie fodder. 1. The Infinity Gauntlet This one is probably a […]Read On »

Five New Avengers Heroes We Want to See in AVENGERS 2 and 3

When you look at the history of Marvel Comics, just about everyone – even members of other long-standing teams and dedicated loners – have called themselves Avengers at one time or another. So the field is wide open for AVENGERS 2 and 3, but there is the ‘critical mass’ element; some of the team from the first film might have to sit one out to give others their screen time. After all, how many Avengers can you cram into one movie? But given the heroes we’ve already seen assemble, there are some obvious core members that really should turn up […]Read On »

If you want audiences to know immediately that a character is to be respected, can handle just about anything, will put up with no b.s. and is absolutely cool without having to explain all of the above, your best bet is to just cast Samuel L. Jackson. This isn’t to say that the Washington, D.C.-born actor can’t play tender, confused, vulnerable or pretty much anything else –Jackson has proven his extraordinary versatility many times over on film and on stage – but he’s become big-budget movie shorthand for badass authority. No wonder then that when S.H.I.E.L.D. Initiative Director Nick Fury […]Read On »

Interview: THE AVENGERS’ Chris Evans Talks Being Captain America once again

THE AVENGERS isn’t Chris Evans first time out as Steve Rogers, aka, Captain America – he donned the red, white and blue outfit for the 2011 CAPTAIN AMERICA movie, set during WWII. For that matter, Cap isn’t even Evans’ first Marvel superhero character – he previously played Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch, in 2005’s FANTASTIC FOUR and its 2007 sequel, FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER. However, a few elements set Steve Rogers/Cap apart from other characters Evans has portrayed. For one thing, Rogers got frozen in the Forties and woke up in the present. The modern world […]Read On »
