Brian Michael Bendis On Canceled The Avengers Video Game

15 April 2012 1:32 PM, PDT

Speaking with Game Informer Magazine, comic book writer Brian Michael Bendis (who is also the current writer for the Marvel Mmo) revealed that he wrote Thq's now-defunct video game tie-in for Marvel's The Avengers. He briefly discusses the game's point of view, saying it was from the Pov of Iron Man, Hulk, Thor and Captain America. Additionally, he confirmed that Hawkeye would've been a playable character as well. "The one game that haunts me is that I was writing the Avengers game - the Thq game that got canceled," Bendis told the magazine. "I have a copy of it at the house, and it was a great looking game. It was a fully immersed Avengers game and the world will never see it." "It was a point of view game, which was different than most super hero games, but you could play the game from the Pov of Hulk, Iron Man, »

Kevin Feige On Excluding Ant-Man In The Avengers And Killing Off A Certain Character

15 April 2012 12:26 PM, PDT

Chatting openly with the Toronto Sun, Marvel Studios' president of production, Kevin Feige, discussed his idea of killing off a certain favored character from Marvel's The Avengers superhero assembly. Additionally, Feige also comments on the exclusion of one of the original Avengers in the 1960s comic books, Ant-Man. "[It was my idea]. We wanted the audience to understand the stakes and not just assume because it's a franchise, no one will ever get hurt. So I was watching J.J. Abrams' Star Trek movie - and I'm a big Star Trek nerd so this may have hit me more than other people - but when they killed Spock's mom, I was like, 'We have to do that!' " "Edgar's still working on that [Ant-Man] project, and it's closer than ever," says Feige. "But it's been eight years we've been working with him, and we finally decided we couldn't keep putting more people »

Josh Wilding Reviews: The Secret Service #1

15 April 2012 10:49 AM, PDT

Gary's life is going nowhere. He lives in public housing with a mother who answers to her brutish boyfriend, and spends his nights carousing with pals. But Gary's Uncle Jack has taken a different path - one of glamour, danger and mystery. And when Jack is called upon to get his nephew out of trouble one last time, their lives are going to intersect in a way neither of them could have foreseen. From the writer of Kick-Ass and the artist of Watchmen comes a story about family, class, and high-stakes espionage. The Secret Service #1 is not your typical Mark Millar comic book. While it's of the same high quality we've come to expect from the writer, the setting and tone just feels completely different to anything we've seen before. The writer has made no secret of just how much it means to him to be collaborating with Watchmen artist »

ryanjdrf1992 Reviews: Marvel's The Avengers

14 April 2012 3:37 PM, PDT

I woke up at 6 am to leave to see a preview showing of Marvel's The Avengers. Needless to say waking up that early, driving 45 min to the theater, and waiting outside for around 2 hours has never been more worth it. It's hard to explain The Avengers. It has so much room to fail with the enormous cast, and the largeness of the scale. This movie really came down to three things for me: the acting, the directing, and almost more importantly, the writing. What this movie did was accomplish something that has never been done before. First of all, it created the first true cinematic universe (not like the loosely related Tarantino universe) this truly brought characters in from four different franchises, and brought them together in a way that was comprehensible to the audience. It makes sense how all these strange characters came together. It's hard to say which »

Comics: New Hawkeye Ongoing Series To Launch In August

14 April 2012 3:29 PM, PDT

Marvel has announced that writer Matt Fraction and artist David Aja are set to reunite for an ongoing series starring none other than Hawkeye/Clint Barton, which begins its run this August. The two are collaborating for the first time since their work on Immortal Iron Fist with Ed Brubaker. Below are comments from Aja and Fraction, as well as the covers for the first two issues in the series. “Hawkeye was one my favorite characters when I was a kid,” Aja recalls. “One of the first Marvel comics I read was Avengers #25, and I [fell] in love with [the] guy; he acted as real person, was a complete jerk, so I suppose I identified with him.” “Never had the chance to write a character like him, or to do a book like this before,” Fraction divulges. “And I wanted to chronicle him in an ongoing series because it'd keep me from »

The Avengers: Spoilers & Questions Answered!

14 April 2012 2:02 PM, PDT

Thor vs Hulk ends in a stalemate. The fight begins on the helicarrier after Banner hulks out and almost kills Black Widow. A huge fight between the two ensues (they're about even in terms of power levels) but eventually ends when Hulk is distracted by a Shield fighter jet. Stark Tower becomes The Avengers Mansion. It's damaged during the battle for NYC but an A symbol can be seen on it at the very end (in a scene involving Pepper and Tony). The events of The Incredible Hulk are acknowledged as in continuity. Tony watches a clip of the Hulk roaring from the park scene in Tih, Coulson briefs Captain America on the variation to the serum Erskine made (i.e. what Blonsky had), and Ruffalo's Banner talks about how he leveled Brooklyn (i.e. when he duked it out with Abomination). Thor flies only a handful of times during »

Kevin Feige On Iron Man 3 Casting Rumors, Incredible Hulk After Credits Scene And More

14 April 2012 12:48 PM, PDT

Talking to The Huffington Post, Kevin Feige has revealed the difficult position Marvel Studios found themselves in after getting Tony Stark to cameo at the conclusion of The Incredible Hulk. The scene appeared to indicate the The Avengers would have featured the team going after the Hulk (a possibility as Zak Penn was then working on a script before Joss Whedon came in and rewrote it). "The truth of the matter is, we were very concerned about painting ourselves into a corner -- and didn't do it. And if we found a fork in the road and had a really cool idea, one of which paints us into a corner and one of which would just progress the story we need to tell the movie, we always went in the direction of telling the story we needed to tell. I will say that the Tony Stark cameo in "The Incredible Hulk »

During yesterday's star-studded press conference for Marvel's The Avengers movie, two of the anticipated film's stars, Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo, let slip that one last scene was to be filmed that very night. And continuing promotional rounds with Access Hollywood, the two actors jocularly discussed the scene, despite it being debunked by director Joss Whedon and producer Kevin Feige. Watch the video below, with more below! In a separate interview with THR, Ruffalo said,"Yeah, yeah — we're shooting a scene tonight. I don't know where it's going to go. I really don't. We don't even really know what it is yet, but we're shooting a scene tonight." Pointing to the closet of his hotel room, he said, "All I know is that my costume is in there, we're putting on make-up, [and they're saying] ‘show up here and we're going to tell you what we're going to do.' »

Josh Wilding Reviews: Battleship

14 April 2012 9:52 AM, PDT

Very much like Michael Bay's Transformers trilogy, you will either love or hate Battleship. However, an appalling script makes it far more likely that you'll end up falling into the second category as not even the special effects are enough to save this disaster. The story is your standard alien invasion fare and it's not spoiling much to say that it ends exactly like every other mediocre film of this type inevitably does. From a logical point of view, neither the actions of the characters or several other aspects of the film make a lick of sense (regardless of how hard you try to switch off your brain). The "Hoo-rah" patriotic message also becomes old fast and several scenes leave you feeling as if you're watching an enrolment video from the Us Navy. The dialogue is clunky and downright dreadful for the most part. You certainly won't be able »

14 April 2012 8:05 AM, PDT
