The one thread that has tied Phase One of the Marvel Cinematic Universe together has always been Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), which came to a head with his co-lead role in The Avengers. But, did you notice a change Avengers director Joss Whedon made to Fury in his latest outing?
Though most fans agree that Joss Whedon's The Avengers is awesome (hey, it has a stellar 92% on Rotten Tomatoes), it did have a few critics. Now, Whedon himself has chimed in with his thoughts on the dissenters.
With news that Joss Whedon is now working with Marvel and ABC to bring a S.H.I.E.L.D. series to the small screen, there's been a burning question a the back of our minds: Could a small door have been opened for actor Clark Gregg to return?
We've got less than a month before The Avengers finally hits Blu-Ray, and we keep getting deleted scenes from the flick to make the wait easier. Today we've got a Steve Rogers-centric sequence that explores Captain America's deep-rooted loneliness, and reveals more of a dark side to the movie that Joss Whedon cut from the final film.
When it comes to blockbusters, The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises are at opposite ends of the spectrum. Both made boatloads of money, but their tones are completely different. What would happen if Earth's Mightiest Heroes tried to bring the Caped Crusader to the lighter side?
Stan Lee has a long history of comic book movie cameos, and it turns out the one that made the cut in The Avengers wasn't what the director originally had in mind. Want to see Stan Lee's first cameo that died on the cutting room floor?
The extras just keep on coming in the lead-up to the release of The Avengers on Blu-Ray next month, and today we've got something particularly intriguing. It's a scene that Joss Whedon originally intended to use as the film's opening, but it actually takes place after that epic battle. Check it out.
We're all pumped for the release of Marvel's The Avengers on Blu-ray next month, not just because we'll get to see the movie again, but because of all that beautiful bonus footage. Among the special features is a documentary on how Marvel pulled off its cinematic chronicle of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, and we've just seen 25 minutes of it.
Remember that scene in The Avengers in which The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) falls through a building and has a chat with a confused security guard when he wakes up? Turns out, there was a lot more of that conversation that got cut. Potential spoilers ahead!
Disney and Marvel Studios are wasting no time with their Avengers sequel. They've just announced the film's official release date, which will once again kick off the summer blockbuster season.
