Who Will Make a Cameo in "Thor?"

30 December 2010 3:52 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

The Wrap exclusively told us that Jeremy Renner will first appear as Hawkeye in a cameo in "Thor." The actor and his Marvel character will star in Joss Whedon's "The Avenger," but we'll first catch a glimpse of him in the Kenneth Branagh-directed "Thor."

This cameo is set up at the end of the film much like Samuel L. Jackson's appearance as Nick Fury at the end of "Iron Man."

An individual, who'd already seen an early cut of "Thor," confirmed this cameo to The Wrap. And also revealed that Jackson's Fury does not appear in the film.

But the big question, is "Thor" any good? We just have until May 6 when Paramount unleashes "Thor" in theaters. "The Avengers" will arrive the following year, May 4, 2012. For now, let's watch the fantastic "Thor" trailer again. »

More Avengers Rumors: Some Debunked While Others Begin, Plus How Robert Downey Jr. Convinced Mark Ruffalo to Take Hulk Role

30 December 2010 10:52 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

There is plenty of rumor mongering occurring on behalf of Marvel Studios' upcoming adaptation of Avengers this week, and it hasn't been easy to tell fact from fiction, but we'll try our best.

One of the easiest to sniff out as false was the supposed casting of troubled Disney star Demi Lovato, who was reportedly "up for a role" in the comic book movie. THR reports that sources inside Marvel and Lovato's "camp" claim "there was no truth to the rumor."

The report also suggests another rumor that Marvel is looking to bring another female character into the movie, considering Scarlett Johansson is the only female member on the superhero team at this time. Director Joss Whedon revealed in August that the movie "is only going to have one female avenger," but, if the report is to be believed, that could have changed.

Jeremy Renner will cameo as Hawkeye in next summer’s “Thor”

30 December 2010 6:58 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: Marvel has a history of teasing its upcoming films in its current projects. Think of Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury cameo at the end of the original “Iron Man,” Robert Downey Jr. appearing as Tony Stark at the end of “The Incredible Hulk,” and the sight of Thor’s mystical hammer at the end of last summer’s “Iron Man 2.”

So it should come as no surprise that “Thor,” which kicks off the 2011 summer blockbuster season in May, will feature an important “Avengers” tie as Marvel ramps up to the 2012 “Avengers” film.

According to The Wrap, Jeremy Renner of “The Hurt Locker” will appear in “Thor” as Hawkeye, the master archer he’ll play in Joss Whedon’s “Avengers.”

Could The Wasp be making an Avengers appearance?

30 December 2010 2:03 AM, PST | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

Barely a day goes by without another Avengers rumour circulating. It's hardly surprising considering that Marvel's superhero team-up is one of the most ambitious blockbusters ever conceived. Disney star Demi Lovato had been linked to a role in the Joss Whedon movie, but that has now been soundly denied across the board. Apparently Whedon and Marvel are still looking to cast another significant female role though. No doubt they're looking to balance out the testosterone-heavy cast (Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo,...

29 December 2010 9:06 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

According to a report posted on thewrap.com, the May 6 release of the Kenneth Branagh directed Thor will feature a cameo  appearance by the Marvel superhero and Avengers co-member Hawkeye. Last summer at Comic Con it was announced that the 2012 Avengers film to be directed by Joss Whedon would include the master archer to be played by The Hurt Locker’s Jeremy Renner. In the articles, a source who had seen an early cut of Thor confirmed that Hawkeye is in the film, despite earlier quotes from Renner denying the character’s involvement. It’s speculated that he will introduced in a “tag” scene following the end credits as Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury was at the end of the first Iron Man film in 2008. It was confirmed that Fury will not be in Thor, while S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Coulson played by Clark Gregg will be featured.

Hawkeye to Have Cameo in ‘Thor’

29 December 2010 4:48 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

In the Marvel tradition, there has to be a cameo appearance after the credits. And it looks like it will be Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye. An unidentified source who has seen an early cut of “Thor” told TheWrap that Renner’s Hawkeye appears in the film, but declined any further details regarding this cameo. The same source also confirmed Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury does not appear in “Thor.” In an earlier interview with MTV, Renner believed he will not wear the Hawkeye’s classic purple costume for “The Avengers.” “I think it’s going to be a little more reality-based,” said Renner in September. “You can kind of tell with Scarlett [Johansson]’s character in [in “Iron Man 2”], it’s going to be more of a uniform…and not a big purple, comics sort of thing.” Kenneth Branagh-directed “Thor” will open in theaters on May 6, 2011. It is starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, »

Hawkeye May Show Up In Thor

29 December 2010 3:33 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Speculation has been rampant about the possibility of Hawkeye showing up in Thor, but until now, much of the official word has pushed fans closer to no than yes. Jeremy Renner has already signed on to play the character in Joss Whedon.s more than a year away Avengers, but after he brought up the possibility of a Thor cameo and then later denied it, the whole prospect seemed Doa. Not so much anymore. As rumored by The Wrap, an unnamed source that has seen an early cut of Thor has admitted Hawkeye does show up, though for how long and doing exactly what is still anyone.s guess. None of this should come as a big surprise, if it.s true. Marvel is a big fan of introducing characters to be seen later, as they did with Nick Fury in Iron Man, and the whole Thor / Avengers crossover seems »

Marvel Studios May Add The Wasp To ‘The Avengers’

29 December 2010 3:11 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

When loyal Marvel Comics readers think of the female component of The Avengers superhero roster or their Ultimates counterpart, The Wasp is a character top of mind. With The Avengers thus far filling out its ranks with men, outside of Scarlett Johansson’s non-superpowered Black Widow, is there a spot to add a superheroine?

According to recent reports, Marvel is on the lookout to add another female character to The Avengers cast after rumors that Disney starlet Demi Lovato was in talks for a role in the film for which many speculate may be The Wasp.

Heat Vision confirmed that the Lovato rumor is just that, a rumor, but that Marvel is indeed after another actress to join Joss Whedon’s superhero epic. The leading theory still ...

The Avengers Adding To The Star Studded Cast!

29 December 2010 2:57 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Marvel is rumored to be adding another start to the already gigantic cast of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers.

The cast already boasts an awesome cast that includes Chris Evans (Captain America), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk),Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), and Chris Hemsworth (Thor). It has been reported by THR that there will be a new female cast member added to the male centered cast. So which female superhero will Marvel add?

Many poeple are speculating that it will be The Wasp, who was one of the founding members and often a leader of the Avengers. The Wasp is pretty bad ass, she can fly, shrink, and fire energy blasts at the bad guys. We do know for sure that both Demi Lovato and Eva Longoria will not be starring in the film.

Exclusive Everyone knows that Jeremy Renner will play Hawkeye in Joss Whedon's "The Avengers," but that's not the first time we'll see the Oscar-nominated "Hurt Locker" star drawing the bow and arrow. Renner will first appear as Hawkeye in a cameo in the Kenneth Branagh-directed "Thor," TheWrap has learned.

Top 10 New Comic Book Series of 2010

29 December 2010 1:49 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Again only comics I’ve bought that were published in 2010. If you think I’ve missed something please let me know in the comments section below, after all this is only mine and Phil’s opinions. I’m always open to trying new things… comics, I mean comics!

1: Uncanny X-Force | Marvel | W: Rick Remender | A: Jerome Opena

Only 3 issues in an this series is looking like the best X-Men series currently being published, and that’s not to say the titles by Fraction, Gillen, Carey, and David aren’t good, it’s just that Uncanny X-Force has that certain something that makes it stand out. It’s a combination of the tight, fast paced writing of Remender, the amazing art by Opena and White, and lots of little touches that the creators add that make it a perfect comic.

Demi Lovato still has her 2011 touring plan, but one gig the teen sensation doesn't have on her agenda is a starring role in "The Avengers." Contrary to reports, the 18-year-old singer/actress will not be featured in the film about a team of Marvel superheroes, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

THR reports that sources inside Lovato's and Marvel's camps are "denying across the board" that the "Camp Rock" star is involved in any way in the all-star comic book adaptation, which is tentatively due in 2012. Part of the difficulty in hiring the actress is that the Joss Whedon-directed film will begin shooting in spring 2011 and the starlet is still undergoing her medical treatment for "emotional and physical issues."

Demi Lovato Isn't In 'The Avengers,' But Marvel Is Reportedly Seeking New Female Character

29 December 2010 7:43 AM, PST | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

As it turns out, Demi Lovato doesn't have what it takes to fight alongside "The Avengers."

Earlier in the week, the "Camp Rock" actress, teen singer and troubled Disney star found herself at the center of rumors suggesting her involvement in "The Avengers," Marvel Studios and director Joss Whedon's upcoming superhero flick starring Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America and Chris Hemsworth as Thor.

Now, sources close to Lovato and Marvel are both completely denying the actress' involvement. The Hollywood Reporter reports that "part of the problem in hiring the actress is that she's currently in rehab 'for emotional and physical issues.'"

There was also the problem of figuring out which role Lovato would occupy. We did our best to puzzle it out, naming Janet Van Dyne, Stature, Kate Bishop and Karolina Dean as possible candidates. Turns out that she'll play none of these characters, »

Probably False Rumor: Alan Tudyk For Ant-Man?

28 December 2010 5:37 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With the release of both Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger only a few months away and The Avengers scheduled to begin production in April, the next couple years are going to be filled to the brim with plenty of Marvel news. Thanks to the revelation at Comic Con, however, casting won't really be one of the issues...except in the case of Ant-Man. While he is the only key member of The Avengers that won't be featured in Joss Whedon's superhero ensemble film, Edgar Wright's script for a solo movie has been bouncing around for months and could very well start production in the next year. We've already heard plenty of rumors that have never been substantiated, specifically the one about Firefly star Nathan Fillion taking the part, but now we have a new rumor emerging - and it's one of Fillion's former co-stars.
