Joss Whedon in talks for directing and re-writing script.

The core cast is already set, but Nathan Fillion MUST play Hawkeye.

I like Nathan Fillion. He was great in Firefly, Dr Horrible & Slither. I have seen Castle once or twice and it didn't do much for me. It seemed too normish.
Now, take this with a grain of salt. The only network TV show I watch is Big Bang Theory.

Here's what we know. Downey, Hemsworth (Thor) and Chris Evans (Captain America) are all set. Edward Norton has said he'd like to play Hulk again (villain??) but he wanted Letterier to direct if at all possible. Scarlett has signed on for more than one picture so we'd have to assume Black Widow would be in this somewhere.

I have not seen Hawkeye mentioned anywhere but have saw that they want Ant-Man, ie Hank Pym in this (but would not give him the origin story that Iron Man, Thor and Cap are getting).

From the article:


Nathan Fillion - Wonder Man
Former Fireflier Fillion is already playing a smug, full-of-himself celebrity with a heart of gold on Castle, so why not cast him as the safari-jacket-wearing Hollywood actor who's also an ion-powered Avenger?

Dude is stealing my ideas!

I like some of Whedon's stuff - Buffy, Dr. Horrible, Firefly/Serenity - and I just recently started watching this show. I like it. It's not The Sopranos quality wise but it's entertaining. I get a kick out of Castle's bulletproof vest that says "writer" on it while all the others say "police." Cracks me up every time.

Their suggestion of Adam Baldwin as Hawkeye is spot on, way better than Fillion. Hawkeye is gruff, tactless and willing to put an arrow through someone's wrist. That's Adam Baldwin.

Count me as a bit skeptical. X-men worked because you had mostly unknowns in the main roles. With Robert Downey, Sam Jackson and, maybe, Ed Norton already lined up, how in the world are they going to get enough screen time for everyone? Think about how Spidey 3 suffered from too many villains, now imagine what too many heroes might bring.
I'd love for this to be great and I like Joss, but it's going to take a grand effort to make Avengers work in a 2-3 hour format.

Whedon is especially adept at balancing a large cast. In "Buffy," "Angel," "Firefly," and "Dollhouse," he managed to let every character have a voice. If anyone can pull off a superhero team movie in 2-3 hours, Whedon is the man.

I was sort of surprised to see Hugh Jackman hadn't done anything prior to X-Men. Still it had Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellar and Rebecca Romaijn not exactly chumps in the cast.

*Posterisk* Has anyone else noticed when you look at an actor on imdb.com it brings up their worst movie so much of the time?
For example, if you type in Hugh Jackman, it gives you results Actor: The Prestige(2006) I can't imagine anyone trying to think of Hugh Jackman who says, "ya know, australian, big guy, he was in the Prestige?"

Back on topic. I think Whedon will do a fantastic job given the storylines.

The comic book geek in me is seriously pumped about this movie, not to mention Iron Man 2, Captain America (about time!), and Thor.

But Green Lantern is perhaps more exciting for me. A Justice League (or, even better, Justice Society) movie would be... I just don't have the words.

A JSA movie with Jay Garrick, The Spectre, Alan Scott, Dr. Fate, Sandman, the Atom, et al taking on Hitler, the Nazi army, and the 1945 Axis villains would be beyond cool.

I'd settle for Golden Age, the greatest comic book story of all time.

I got to see a special sneak preview of The Avengers last night at Springdale. The movie was amazing. Perhaps the best "superhero" movie ever. (Nolan's Batman films are better movies, but this is a better comic book movie). Every character had sufficient screen time, and the script really works everyone well off of each other.

Whedon did it. I watched The Avengers today. I thought it was terrific and that Whedon did a good job of balancing the cast and giving each main character his/her moments in the film.
Robert Downey, Jr. does dominate every scene he is in IMO, but that mainly because of his talent outshines that of his co-stars.
Some superhero films have bored me. Not this one. It was fun, funny and a hoot. :thumbup:

Just got back from seeing it, not in IMAX which was sold out but in just 3D. The 2.5 hours flew by and every Avenger gets a chance to shine. Was most impressed w/Mark Ruffalo. This movie finally IMHO captures the complex nature of Banner/Hulk and not just a Jekyll & Hyde show. The CGI never seemed OTP at all. Oh, and a lot of the LOL humor involves the Hulk.

If you want to save some extra $ skip the regular 3D (can't comment on IMAX 3D yet...).

Of course, the Rave has better audio so I could hear pretty much all the RDJ asides.

I LOVED the scene with Hulk and Loki late in the movie. "Puny God..." :lol: And the one with Thor was a classic!

And who ever posted about there being *two* credits scenes, thank you! I would have left after the teaser scene and missed the last bit. :beerme: Simple, but effective.

Joss Whedon is a nerd GOD, not a common king. lol!

We saw it in 2D. So far in my experience with 3-D, non have been worth the extra money. And this proved to me why I have opening weekends. Not so much for kids, but in this case the stinky-guy-overdue-his-yearly-shower. Coupled with the "pleasantness" of BO, he was obnoxiously loud.

CAUTION: NERD STUFF
I'm a big fan of the Batman movies, but the brilliance of Avengers is that it feels more like a Marvel comic book to me than the Batman movies do. The Dark Knight is more in the vein of The Dark Knight Returns series, which to me is one of the greatest graphic novels ever written, but not so much as a classic serial comic book.

While Nolan's movies are fascinating with some of the most gut-wrenching villains around and great commentary on the hero, I think Whedon brought the fun back to comic book movies while not sacrificing character study.

Long story short, I think I actually prefer Whedon's treatment over Nolan's, but thank goodness we live in a time where we have access to both.

I've always got the feeling that the Batman movies were a dramatic movies that happened to get it's ideas from a comic book. That isn't bad. I think they are absolutely brilliant and the Dark Knight should have been nominated for an Academy award. It never felt like a comic book movie to me though. Iron Man and other movies feel like comic book movies. I can't wait to see The Avengers.

Talk out of SDCC was split between those excited for Ultron and those upset that Thanos wasn't chosen (even though he was featured as an end credit of The Avengers). My thoughts are meh... I'm more interested in the Avengers themselves and how they'll work together (first movie just scratched the surface). It will be interesting to see how well the buildup will be with the other movies coming out before. Can lightning strike twice for Marvel?

I loved Hank Pym (his characterization in the "Avengers Assemble" cartoon was great), but it would make just as much sense to have Tony Stark build Ultron.

Vin Diesel as Vision? He's good at voicing robots, especially ones with limited emotional range/acting ability.

Diesel has not been confirmed yet. His tweets seem to be cryptic and about a love story - - Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy maybe?

I am also glad they are not using Pym yet - let Edgar Wright do movie his way in Phase 3 and then Ant-Man/Giant-Man is in universe.

If Pym isn't going to be in Phase 2 how does Ultron come into being?

Tony Stark messes around with IA. J.A.R.V.I.S morphs into Ultron. Paul Bettany gets bigger role.

You are all worthless fanboys for not being hyped about Groot (who is a freaking tree) and Rocket Raccoon (a raccoon. With guns) coming to a multiplex near you next year.

I had never even heard of GOTG till they announced the movie. Granted I'm more of a DC fanboy.

Groot is a sentient tree that is killed quite often, but as long as a small bit of him remains he can grow.
He's super intelligent. He was in one of the first journey into mystery issues that featured Thor.
Catchphrase: I am Groot!

Rocket Raccon: a raccoon. With space guns.

As much as I like The Rock, he's not Luke Cage.

Vin Diesel will be voicing Groot.

He should be able to record all his lines in about five minutes, as there are only so many ways to say "I AM GROOT!!"

No word yet on Rocket Raccoon.

Not the first name I thought of to voice Ultron, but I'll keep an open mind.
