Obviously, there’s a lot of Avengers today with the new trailer released. Want to read new quotes from Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner about the film? Where can you play an Avengers game right now? Is somewhere selling Avengers themed pet wear? Has a Spider-Man cake ended the trend of superhero cakes? Want to see Nathan Fillion talk about Justice League: Doom and act in a superhero comedy skit? Read about all this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
El Mayimbe on Twitter linked to this Film School Rejects story from last month of an Avengers fan poster by themadbutcher. He feels it’s better than the official one released yesterday. Agree? (My apologies if I’ve already posted this. I know it’s old, but felt it was more topical now.)
Entertainment Weekly spoke to all the members of The Avengers with the release of the poster, and trailer, and got some great quotes from them. I’ll pepper them across the rest of the column. Here’s Robert Downey Jr:
Avengers has always been this kind of hovering [thing]. Is it really possible? I just think that it was an incredibly ambitious notion, and looking back at Marvel and their fledgling years, they always had a vision of this … although not entirely accurately….In one teaser I say, ‘I’m putting a team together,’ and in the other one I’m like, ‘What do you mean I can’t join the team?’ But aside from that, it kind of really tracks through.
Here’s an EW quote from Mark Ruffalo about The Hulk in The Avengers:
The rage is something that is like going on a binger — you wake up after a blackout and you did all this f—ed up shit. Oh God, what did I do? And so we were talking about it like that, actually.
Chris Evans tells EW the one word that describes Captain America in The Avengers? “Lonely”
Chris Hemsworth says Thor is still a little out of place in The Avengers:
There are certainly moments where Thor says things and there’s a sideways glance from everybody: ‘What the hell is this guy talking about?’
