The above video, Assembly Begins, about The Avengers, is from the Captain America: The First Avenger Blu-ray. Thanks to Comic Book Movie.
Disney sent out a press release announcing The Avengers trailer is the most downloaded trailer in iTunes history:
Marvel Studios announced today that the trailer for next summer’s most highly anticipated movie, “Marvel’s The Avengers,” has been downloaded over 10 million times in its first 24 hours on iTunes Movie Trailers (http://www.apple.com/trailers), shattering the most-viewed trailer record in the site’s history.
Speaking of The Avengers, here’s the full, previously unreleased teaser trailer from the end of Captain America: The First Avenger thanks to Comic Book Movie.
You’ve probably already read this, either on this site or somewhere else, but Bleeding Cool and io9 have solid description of The Avengers footage shown at New York Comic-Con that focused on Bruce Banner, played by Mark Ruffalo.
Tonight at midnight, fans will finally get their hands on Batman: Arkham City. Reviews have been great and Nerd Bastards points out this great commercial.
Comic Book Movie points out a tweet by Brian Michael Bendis saying the Powers pilot won’t hit the air until June 2012, if all goes well.
The Playlist talked to Joe Cornish about Ant-Man and while he said he wasn’t sure about when the film might go, he was very coy about their implication the film could include several people wearing the suit:
‘No comment.’ He then started to say something, ‘Well, you know…’ before shutting himself off with another ‘No comment.’
Does Cillian Murphy reprise his role at Scarecrow in The Dark Knight Rises? He won’t say either way in this interview found via CBM. Very interesting.
