Janet Van Dyne has a rough go of it. Abused by Hank Pym, dying in multiple universes, getting cut out of flicks even as they were beginning to film.
This shit is intense right hurr. How about the entire Marvel Movie Universe done up in an annotated timeline? Who has the time to make this shit? Wait, who has the time to blog all day about nonsense? Touche, good friend. Touche.
Here’s a poster for the Avengers with Nick Fury and Agent Coulson. Legit question: does anyone actually give a fuck about Agent Coulson? I’m genuinely interested.
Oh boy! I thought that the awful use of Nine Inch Nails in the trailer for Avengers was bad. I like the song, but holy fuck. Heavy handed. After glancing at the soundtrack listing for the flick, I’m not wishing that was the worst of my problems.
Oh hell yeah! Someone has delved into the Nethers and uncorked the Avengers Hype Machine. It’s showering us with promotional images, though most of them are just the gorgeous crew looking gorgeous if not a bit angsty. This newest batch is more of the same, with a bit of a Black Window push-up bra stylee.
It’s almost too fucking bad that we live in a universe filled with eternal spoilers and the death of the reveal. I realize that I contribute to the perpetuation of this problem, but I can’t help it. I’m an addict. Word vomiting out of Ain’t It Cool News is that Marvel has already shot a secret trailer for The Avengers, which will be attached to either Captain America: The First Avenger, Thor, or both. And oh yeah, the trailer drops the reveal on the villain behind the enormo-flick coming out next year. This would have been a total balls-draining geekgasm to experience without foreknowledge, but c’est la internet or whatever.
Oh don’t you love shortlists and speculation? I mean, weren’t you getting worried with the hammering out all the details of The Dark Knight Rises would leave us in Speculation Limbo? Fear not, true mouth breathers such as myself! And innocent bystanders. Coming off of Samuel Jackson stating on Jimmy Kimmel that he’d be screen testing actresses for the role of his sidekick, today we have a purported list.
You ready for this shit?
Shazam! And a thousand nerds orgasmed simultaneously across the internets. Behold them all! Including Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Boom.
It was a great way to end an exciting day at Comic-Con: The full cast of Avengers, on stage, with newly-anointed director Joss Whedon. So who is in this picture?
The full roll call (via Cinematical):
Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury
Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark
Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson
Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow
Chris Hemsworth as Thor
Chris Evans as Captain America
Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye
Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner / Incredible Hulk
Robert Downey Jr. invited director Joss Whedon to the stage, saying, “We knew we had to find a director you’d love.” And being his usual self-depreciating self, Whedon said:
I have had a dream all my life and it was not this good . . . This cast is more than I could have ever hoped for. And I am going to blow it. So I need your love; I need your support.
When the crowd went nuts, he said, “Oh thank you.”
I’m beyond excited for this shit.
