I was wondering whether someone was ready to restart the spy genre. Whether it be a Bond film or something different I wasn’t sure. But today it was the Kingsman. Continue reading Kingsman: The Secret Service Review (No Spoilers!)

A week before comic con and Marvel keeps building up the hype. Yes, today after showing a new female Thor off for the comics and possibly the films yesterday, they just released images from behind the scenes of the second Avengers film. As these images were released, Marvel comics also showed a teaser for a new comic to be released tonight on Colbert. Of course, all of this is ahead of the grand spectacular convention in San Diego which will encourage people to go to Marvel’s Panel this Saturday. However, since I will not be attending comic con, I will talk about each of the images down below…
Captain America Winter Soldier was a huge success both critically and financially this image seems to combine both styles of a modern and old fashioned Cap. Although this is just an image of two characters standing around, they’re avengers on screen together. Thor looks similar but more beaten up in this image, probably in a gathering place to meet or recruit temporarily with other avengers.
A behind the scene costume image does not reveal any other new avengers costumes(expect that for comic con) but it is a humorous look at all the main old avengers and their new designs. Nick Fury’s costume is up here, but he is only slated for a cameo appearance at this point.
Hawkeye’s new costume is actually more of a successor to the comic books version without a cowl. I like this image as it shows him possibly get more screen and action time with the avengers. This may be a solo image but previous recorded images have shown him with the likes of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.
Located at most likely, the newly christened Avengers Tower, a meeting or gathering of the tired avengers. They(Iron Man, War Machine and Hawkeye) seem to be speaking about something dire while Cap and what looks like Hulk(Banner) and Thor are having a bit of fun. This image teases team ups of multiple avengers with Black Widow being the only original avenger not present.
Another look at the infamous twins looks clear and true to the concept art Marvel showed in their TV special this year. The characters costumes fit the universe, but like all of Quicksilver’s costumes it is quirky, or like Kick Ass’. Scarlet Witch looks far better and more dark. They seem even from the photo to have a good dynamic.
Deemed the science bros, Ruffalo and Downey Jr.(Banner and Stark) look afraid or in awe of something they’ve created. Also located in Avengers Tower. Nothing much here, but another team up image to give excitement.
Black Widow looking much like her Iron Man 2 self, she looks to be on reconnaissance or a new mission, also look at the new toys on her wrists. It looks like a more true adaptation of the comic costume much like Hawkeye’s suit.
The only true BTS image with Whedon directing Scarlet Witch(Olsen) and Hawkeye(Renner) in a fight in a foreign country. This was also was seen in set vids earlier this year with Ultron. However I question how much they will use the twins since all we’ve seen of them is from this set.
These set photos give us a good look at the production of Age of Ultron and exciting and clear new looks at Avengers. Obviously comic con is coming up and Marvel will release more in time, but there is a possibility of a teaser being shown in comic con for a release with Guardians. There’s whispers it may be the after credits scene. Otherwise expect one in the latter part of the year meaning October to December. Avengers: Age of Ultron is set for May 1, 2015. Comment below on what you think of the set photos as well as what Marvel will do at comic con.
Yesterday, The View and Marvel Entertainment announced a new title would be given on the View today. Such an odd pairing gave rise to female movies and TV rumors. That was quickly shot down when on The View it was revealed that the new comic book heroin is actually a female Thor. Which gives rise to more questions such as, Will Thor die in phase 3 to be replaced by this female Avenger? Most people think Thor can’t die because he’s a god but he can due to his separation from his hammer. From his films we learned he can bleed. However you must make this fan knowledge. The replacement portion could be like Shazam’s origin where an ordinary person becomes something more. On The View they announced her eventual replacement in the comics during a ten episode arc this October which still could mean Thor 3. Considering that don’t get ahead of yourself, although this is an interesting choice for a film it is unlikely to be announced until comic con or even after in 2015 or 2016. I was a little disappointed but who wouldn’t be excited for a different take on a old character. What do you think of the change? Who should play female Thor? Comment below.
