    Default The Avengers (Marvel) - News/Discussion/Speculation

    Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, who penned the screenplay for the first Iron Man movie, have suggested to MTV Movies that the first Avengers movie, due in 2011, could see the heroes assembled to battle the Hulk.

    The very first issue of the comic book in September 1963 saw the trickster Loki manipulate the Hulk into a battle against other superheroes, ending with the Hulk briefly joining the team.

    Fergus told MTV that he agreed with The Incredible Hulk director Louis Letterier that Bruce Banner's alter ego would be a good opponent for the film. "I personally like when good-guy characters have to fight each other,” he said. “Good guys going against good guys who both believe in an issue is way more interesting than a villain clearly into evil and I like when former friends become committed enemies.”

    But that's what I got with one the two animated movies made recently. Bruce was trying to control himself when he was the Hulk and ends up bad. Avengers have to fight Hulk. Poor Hulk, so misunderstood.

    This should be interesting. I loved Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk and when I found out that they were only the beginning of a huge series of movies that interconnect, I got really excited. I can't wait to see all of them and how they do this. I was never much of a comic book hero fan, but Dark Knight and Iron Man and Incredible Hulk changed that.

    Me, I have always been a fan of comic book heroes. So all of these movies released over the past few years have been like a dream come true for me.

    You and me both fifth. I was a little too young at the time to really appreciate the Superman movies with Christopher Reeve. I grew up watching those, so it was kind of no big deal.

    But the first time I saw a trailer for X Men is probablly one of the most awesome moments of my comic book related life.

    And the Hulk would make an awesome villain for the Avengers to go up against. I just really hope that when they get around to doing the movie Downey and Norton are in it.

    I agree with that. Pure good and Evil is so rare. This way makes the characters and their individual stories interesting...
    Science Fiction is an existential metaphor; it allows us to tell stories about the human condition.

    Isaac Asimov once said individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction, its essence has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.

    Well, aren't they really trying to get the Ultimates franchise onscreen with these movies? I mean, what's the point of having (the BAMF) Samuel L. Jackson playing Nick Fury unless they were aiming directly at the Ultimates? Makes sense, and it'd be a great story - no matter which incarnation of the story they use.

    As for the rest of the Avengers/Ultimates... I'm really hoping to not see a big-name actor as Thor. That's really my only requirement.

    Default Downey Jr attached to 'Avengers'

    Robert Downey Jr. will play Tony Stark in Marvel Comics' The Avengers.

    According to Variety, the actor has agreed a deal with the studio to revive the role for the 2011 superhero project and Iron Man 3.

    The Avengers will feature characters Captain America, Thor and The Hulk as well as Iron Man.

    Don Cheadle, who recently confirmed that he is replacing Terrence Howard in Iron Man 2, is also onboard with the project.

    Iron Man director Jon Favreau will serve as executive producer on the movie.

    Yeap, Marvel is really stepping it up now that they have the rights to their own characters! I'm ecstatic that RDJ will at least be doing 3 more movies as Stark. But said to see Howard replaced. Cheadle is an amazing actor, but now I'm used to TH as Rhoady.

    Well, if we count Downey Jr. as Iron Man, I think there can be more than just three other movies. Two Iron Man movies and Avengers. But I guess Avengers will be pretty succesful (I am looking forward to it as a little girl ), so there might be a sequel or two. So who knows? RDJ loves this character but true is that he would have to keep himself in shape for all those years. But I think he stays.
    I saw Iron Man few times and I love that guy But, of course, I won´t be watching Avengers only bc of him.

    I like Don Cheadle but I don´t think he is a military type. It will be weird but, what can we do? But I think I will get used to it after some time.

    Yeah, unfortunate as it may be, we have to let Terrance Howard go. Don Cheadle is a good actor, I've liked a lot of his movies. He'll probably end up doing a fine job.

    Well considering that between now and Avengers there'll be Captain America, Thor and Iron Man II, 2011 is actually quite soon.

    Most of it in 2010 thought I am curious who is gonna be Thor. I don´t know Captain America too much...cos...it´s "America" I didn´t find it that interesting for me. I think that after Iron Man, I am looking forward now to Iron Man 2. I liked the style, RDJ, of course, but it was in all those "dark, depressed heroes" comics-movies a very fresh air.
