They are powering up The Hulk in the brains department, Ruffalo says he's a smarter Hulk; most likely to keep in line with The Avengers cartoon(Season 2 now on Disney XD). Also no Ferrig's voicing the Hulk Ruffalo is doing the voice acting for the Jade Giant

I dont know if anyone has brought this up yet, but the 3D in the new trailer looks SHIT! every single person looked liked they were cut-pasted into the shot, making everything look like a kids pop-up book. if the film looks like that trailer, it will ruin it

3D alone ruins movies. It only really worked for Avatar...and that was because the story was so generic you had nothing else to do but look at shit.

Most of these movies including Avengers are converted to 3D after filming. They aren't filmed with the 3D technology that James Cameron developed and used on Avatar. So if you hear a film is a conversion you should go see it in 2D instead.

It's crazy how this weird topic has come up in 2 threads on here now.

According to the Marvel Encyclopedia, Asgardians are not "gods" but rather just god-like. As opposed to the Olympians, who ARE considered gods. I'm not sure exactly what Marvel's definition of a god is, but it seems to me like it has a lot to do with whether or not they are immortal (or in other words, can't die due to getting old, or just can't get old). Of course there are some characters, like the Eternals, who aren't considered gods, but are immortal. I guess since they weren't originally immortal, that may be why. Maybe it's if you're born an immortal?

They specifically say that the people of Asgard exist in another dimension and have extra-long lifespans among other attributes that got them labeled as gods early on.

The Marvel universe has a hierarchy for higher-powered beings. The One Above All is the most powerful (I think most would see this character as the equivalent of God), next down is the Living Tribunal, next after that is the 5 sentient beings: Galactus, Eternity, Infinity, Death, and Oblivion. After this, I believe the next level down is the Celestials and then after that is subject to debate, but normal "gods" like the Olympians I think are the next step or possibly 2 steps down from the Celestials. This is my understanding of how the Marvel Universe explains their higher-powered beings. It isn't until you get down to the Celestials that you have any who are "good" or "bad", they're more just beings that are necessary for the universe to retain balance.

I realize most people don't think highly of wikipedia, but for comics, it actually is a great resource to read up on stuff (and most of the articles do have citations).

Wol, saying Thor isn't a god is not bashing him. It's just being a geek about properly labeling him. He's still awesome. Even if he isn't quite as strong as Hulk CAN get, he's still easily the most powerful avenger simply because of the other abilities he has. Flight, summoning lightning and electricity, etc. Everything put together makes him the most powerful Avenger by far. Only Hulk would be able to fight him out of the group, the rest of them would just be toyed with. Hell, only Hulk would even be able to hurt him, the others simply aren't strong or powerful enough to actually hurt Thor, let alone take him on in a fight. This is the Avengers from the movie and tv show, that is.

Sorry for the long post...


I just know they're gonna fuck Thor over in the movie. They'll depower him, make it the Hulk and Iron Man show, and then Hawkeye sales will go up and Thor sales will plummet.

I have an old comic where Thor said he was worshipped by Vikings as a God, but he himself was not a Viking. I consider Thor a God, not some lame ass alien from another world *Superman*.

I'm taking this to my grave. Thor: God of Thunder. Fuck the world.n Bastards fucked up my vacaation.


Hahaha, don't let it ruin your vacation, you really do love the GOD of Thunder, don't you?

I fear they'll depower him, too, I already didn't like how they made the Ice Giants in the Thor movie small as hell. People need to understand that his main enemies are giants the size of fucking King Kong who he regularly whoops up on. He is more than strong enough to beat the shit out of giants. Not some guys who are like 10 feet tall, we're talkin 30 or 40 stories tall here. I and my roommate who is also a big Thor fan will be very very disappointed if they do this to Thor.

If you want to consider him a god, go for it. As far as I'm concerned, he's close enough to one that noone should give a shit if he is still called one. He's certainly powerful enough to take on and kill gods.

I generally don't watch 3D movies. I paid a good amount of money to get laser eye surgery specifically so I wouldn't have to wear glasses any more (or at least until I'm in my 40s and need them to read). It's working out so far, but now they want me to put on crazy stupid plastic glasses to watch something that ultimately still looks like a movie to me either way. It's a little neat for things to "pop out" at me, but it seems too gimmicky for me to really care that much about it. I have no problem watching a movie in 2D like it always has been.

Well, a mindless smashing machine wouldn't really be able to be part of a team, so he'd have to have some sort of intelligence outside of rage or else none of the storylines with the Avengers and Hulk would work.

If I remember correctly, in the Avengers cartoon episode when they introduced Hulk, he and Bruce Banner made a deal for the greater good. Bruce convinced Hulk to help the Avengers because it was the right thing to do, but in return, Bruce lets Hulk stay "out" and having charge over their body (except when research needs to be conducted).

Kevin Nash was Odin and Richard Greico was Loki that should have been the cast in the Marvel film!!

Saw a screening of the Avengers yesterday. It was fantastic. Mark Ruffalo wasn't as bad as I feared, and Hulk was the best he's been.

RDJ was great, of course.

Overall, the screen time was quite balanced, without too much going to anyone character. Hawkeye got less...ish, as would be expected for a character who hasn't had his own movie for people to get to know him.

You'll love it.

The after-credit scene is...well. No spoilers, but it sets up something exceptionally ambitious.



EDIT - Also: the screening was in IMAX 3D, and it blew my fucking mind. Exceptionally well done.

I agree. 3D is a scam. I'm not paying an extra four or five dollars a ticket to get a headache.

Here's someting I'd love to see in the movie:

You know how most origin movies show the superhero doing some regular/everyday type hero stuff near the beginning...like stopping a bank robbery or even saving a cat from a tree?

I'd love if in this movie some little mom & pop store is being robbed and Black Widow is there and she takes down the robber, but somehow her Avenger Assemble beacon goes off so Captain America shows up, but the situation is already under control, then Iron Man blasts through the wall, but Cap and Widow tell him to cool his jets as it's all finished.
Then Thor comes through the ceiling, Mjolnir first...looking for the problem as they all tell him it's done.

Then Cap asks "Where's Banner?"

Then the whole place is ruined.
