We already know – SPOILERS! – Thanos is on the way in the next THE AVENGERS movie, but what other famous foes from Avengers stories of the past deserve a shot at big screen stardom? After all, heroes are only as good as the villains they face. We list a few here, but they’re only suggestions; and no, Count Nefaria is not on this list.

Cobie Smulders has long been hailed for her comedic prowess as Robin Sherbatsky on HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, now gearing up for its eighth season on CBS. However, with writer/director Joss Whedon’s box-office superhero THE AVENGERS from Disney and Marvel, Smulders shows off her action star side as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill, running, sliding and shooting with the best of them. There are big differences in doing a weekly TV comedy series and a giant studio action feature film, Smulders notes. “It’s definitely a shift in schedule,” says Smulders. “I made it a point to do a lot of […]Read On »

In THE AVENGERS, most of the title characters – Robert Downey, Jr’s Tony Stark/Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers/Captain America and Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner/Hulk – have superpowers, while Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow and Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton/Hawkeye have extraordinary fighting skills. S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury has Samuel Jackson’s awesome glower to keep the Avengers in line, but anyone watching THE AVENGERS or most of its predecessors – the two IRON MAN films and THOR – knows that the glue holding everything together is loyal, tenacious and calm Agent Phil Coulson, played by Clark Gregg. Gregg, […]Read On »
