Captain Marvel to appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron?

15 Nov

We already know that a Captain Marvel movie is in the works from Marvel. But could we be getting a sneak peak at her in Avengers: Age of Ultron?

You know the super fast flip-through of comic book art at the start of every Marvel feature (right before they show the Marvel logo)? Usually this part features art from the character being featured in the film or trailer. In the latest “Extended trailer” for Age of Ultron, I found this frame that clearly shows Ms Marvel (what Carol Danvers used to call herself before taking up the mantle of Captain Marvel). Could this be a hint? Even if the role for Captain Marvel has not yet been cast, is there a plan to reveal her in the next Avengers movie after all?

Avengers Blu-Ray trailer

2 Jul

 

The trailer for Marvel’s The Avengers Blu-Ray special combo pack is out. I bet you can’t wait to get your hands on it, either. A lot of the footage is familiar but I swear there are parts there I’ve never seen before (and I saw the film three times).

The Avengers in Blu-Ray will be out 25 September 2012.

The Avengers: movie vs comic book

As a reader of almost four decades, I place a great importance on faithfulness to comic book canon. I winced when Spider-Man spun biological webbing instead of from mechanical web shooters. I groaned at an original X-Men lineup that didn’t include Scott, Jean or Warren. I was furious when Galactus appeared as a formless space cloud.

Where The Avengers (and its forerunners Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, Incredible Hulk and Captain America: The First Avenger) differ from other super-hero movies is Marvel’s retention of full creative control. That is, unlike most other films based on comic books where the characters are simply licensed to a film studio, they instead remain in the hands of the comic creators at Marvel themselves.

My expectation is that The Avengers should stay true to the original comic book source material like no other film franchise. So does it deliver?

I answer the obvious questions about how the Avengers movie compares to the original comic book source material in this story written by myself and published in Yahoo!

Here it is: the first full Avengers trailer

The first Avengers movie trailer shows Loki as the principal villain, a bunch of cars blowing up and tensions flaring between members. It is also probably the coolest two minutes of video on Youtube today.
