This summer's testosterone-fueled hit movie, The Avengers, was mostly all about the guys (Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye, Loki, Nick Fury) with only one female superhero (Black Widow) and S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill (and let's not forget Pepper Potts) to add a feminine touch to this past summer's tentpole. But what if some of the male characters had been played by actresses instead?
The folks at ABC may not have made a decision just yet on Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. series, but the Avengers director is already plugging away on additional scripts and prepping to direct the pilot. Luckily, he's here to explain how he will bring the insanity of the Marvel universe down to a weekly TV format.
Bringing together all of Marvel's various big screen heroes, we all knew The Avengers was going to be an FX extravaganza. Not surprisingly, the flick was nominated for the Oscars in the visual effects category. Want to see how they made all those insane effects?
Considering that DC's roster of comic heroes includes two of the greatest to ever grace the page—Batman and Superman—Marvel's recent box office dominance is almost hard to fathom. But one Marvel exec thinks he's figured out why they're "light years" ahead of DC when it comes to the big screen.
The past year was a big one for sci-fi movies, and according to some, a pretty maddening time when you focus on the "science" part. So which hit movie had the sloppiest science of 2012?
We already know which TV shows were the most pirated of the year, but what about movies? A lot of sci-fi hits made the cut for 2012, but first place will definitely surprise you.
It might've ended up as one of the biggest hits of the year, but director Joss Whedon & Co. had some big decisions to make during the development of The Avengers. How should the new characters look? What about the massive battle in downtown New York? Now, thanks to some early concept art, we know how Marvel's magnum opus evolved.
Loki's been a bad boy. In fact, he's been the big baddie for both last year's Thor and this summer's hit movie The Avengers. Heck, he's been so bad (in a good way) that he's even returning for an another encore in Thor: The Dark World. But will Loki make another return to be a pain in the butt for Earth's Mightiest Heroes in The Avengers 2?
Considering Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. series is coming in the fall of 2013, it makes sense they'd want to round the cast out pretty quickly. Well, the pilot just filled its final opening—say hello to geek girl Skye.
We loved Marvel's The Avengers, and so did you—it was one of the biggest movies of 2012. But was it perfect? Nope. Nope it wasn't (but it sure was EPIC though). And now you can watch everything that was wrong with the hit summer movie in this hilarious video that tallies everything, well, wrong with the film.
