Put this rumor in the "potentially totally awesome news of the day" category, because it seems that we may get to see our favourite non-super-hero red-head, Iron Man's Pepper Potts, in The Avengers after all.
If you were fast enough, you might have caught the bootleg video this morning of the new Avengers teaser that was tucked at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger. Unsurprisingly, it's already gone. Don't worry, though—we've still got you covered with the play by play.
We already know how Captain America's costume has been altered for the big screen—but what will happen to Hawkeye, the archer played by Jeremy Renner, who we've only seen so far in a brief cameo in Thor?
Remember how in the opening of Iron Man 2, Tony Stark makes an over-the-top entrance at his Stark Exposition? Turns out that was not the opening director Jon Favreau originally had in mind.
If you ever needed more proof that the Avengers movie is kind of a big deal, you need only look at the sheer volume of rumors and news surrounding a film that's still a year out. Well, you can add one massive new one to the pile, and it's a doozy. Potential *spoilers* await you!
If you've seen Thor, you'll know that, as with Iron Man and Iron Man 2, there's an Easter egg after the credits, a bonus scene that leads into upcoming movie, The Avengers. It turns out that Thor's director Ken Branagh didn't have a hand in it—the director of The Avengers, Joss Whedon, did.
Someone—presumably not the Red Skull—has managed to get his hands on Samuel L. Jackson's copy of the Avengers script. And not only that, but the anonymous thief has been contacting various entertainment sites and offering to sell the script to the highest bidder.
Joss Whedon got started on the ultimate multiple movie sequel yesterday, as filming began in Albuquerque, New Mexico on The Avengers, in which the stories that started in Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger will all merge. (And hopefully, blow us away.)
The Avengers finally started filming today, but before Joss Whedon stepped behind the camera, there's one thing he wanted you to know—he could use some luck to pull off the monstrous task of mashing together so many Marvel superheroes.
We're all desperately waiting to see the Marvel Universe come together on screen in The Avengers on May 4, 2012 (assuming the date doesn't shift, that is). But it turns out the creation of that supergroup was an accident, brought about by an impending deadline and an artist with a drinking problem.
