We knew that Marvel has longterm plans for their movie universe, but we didn't know they were this longterm. It turns out that they're not just thinking about 'Iron Man 3,' 'Thor: The Dark World,' 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and the second 'Avengers' movie -- they're already thinking about a third 'Avengers' movie...and the major role The Hulk will play in the coming films. The following news will be nothing new to comic fans, but casual viewers should know that this is pretty major SPOILER territory.
Movie and TV voted for the best in entertainment of the past year in the 2012 ScreenCrush Awards, and although it seemed like 'The Dark Knight Rises' beat its rival superhero movie 'The Avengers' in just about every category, Joss Whedon's team finally came out on top when it came to the most epic fight scenes.
Sure, 'The Avengers' was a great movie but there was only one female member (Black Widow) of the superhero team. There are already rumors that Joss Whedon wants to add Wasp to 'Avengers 2' but what if the entire 'Avengers' team was recast as women? Hey, if they can do an all-girl version of 'The Expendables' why not 'The Avengers?' And what if they cast Alison Brie, Sandra Bullock and Amber Heard? It might go a little something like this...
'The Avengers' came out over 7 months ago but that doesn't mean it's too late to look back on the film, especially when it was the biggest film of the year (and one of the biggest films of all-time). Andy Park, conceptual artist for 'The Avengers,' has posted a large gallery of some of his designs for the film online and there's a ton of beautiful imagery that inspired the biggest superhero movie of all-time.
'The Avengers' wound up with a lineup of characters previously seen in the previous Marvel movies like Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Nick Fury and Hawkeye. But if writer/director Joss Whedon had gotten his away, another well-known superhero would've debuted in 'The Avengers' as a part of the team. Who was it and will it be someone we see in 'The Avengers 2?'
While 'The Avengers' may have opened in theaters before director Christopher Nolan's epic conclusion to the 'Batman' trilogy, 'The Dark Knight Rises' is by far the better movie.In the eternal battle between Marvel and DC superheros, Nolan and his cast are the clear victors in this round. Don't believe us? Read on for the top five reasons why 'The Dark Knight' wins the victor's laurel wreath.
