Trailer Addict has found a 5 minute run of B-roll footage from Captain America: The First Avenger that shows a ton of behind the scenes movie magic.
io9 has an “aesthetic analysis of The Dark Knight Rises teaser poster.” Pretty cool read, and a possible glimpse into Nolan and WB’s feelings about the movie.
Speaking of The Dark Knight Rises teaser poster, my colleague David Chen found this really cool mashup of the three teaser posters from Christopher Nolan‘s Dark Knight movies. Look how well the marketing all goes together.
Collider did an interview with Agent Coulson himself, Clark Gregg and talked about a ton of Marvel things. If you are an Avengers fan, you’ll want to check it out, but here’s a little snippet:
It’s kind of bizarre to be in a comic book movie and a superhero movie, and to look across and… first of all, to walk in and try and have a serious conversation with a bunch of people with giant muscles, some real, some not, in neoprene, and they look very much like the people you’ve been reading in comics. It’s hard to keep a straight face. On the other hand, to see those people and have it be Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner or Sam Jackson, a lot of Academy Award nominations out there. That’s kind of remarkable. Unfortunately, a lot of times, very few of us were there at the same time. There was one or two weekends, when everybody was there, and there were some hilarious ‘Avengers assemble’ texts that went out, with the location of Avengers assemble being some very rowdy Albuquerque nightclubs.
Want even MORE B-roll footage from Captain America? Thank you Trailer Addict, here’s another four minutes.
We’d heard about this a few months ago but now it’s official. DC Comics is going to run in-theater ads before movies to promote the upcoming comic book relaunch. It’s going to be cool to see comic books advertise in the mainsteam. Read the press release at Comic Book Resources.
What does Shakespeare have to do with Superman? Not much usually, but io9 has a write up of a current Shakespeare in the Park production of Measure for Measure and how this new show is heavily influenced by Superman. Do you agree with these inferences?
Here’s a cool alternate Captain America: The First Avenger poster by Turk1672 on Deviant Art. Love the built in folds.
Cleveland.com (via On Location Vacations) confirms that The Avengers will indeed be shooting at a NASA facility in Sandusky Ohio, which has an anti-gravity station which – in theory – could be used for any scenes that would be set in space.
Kids say the darnedest things. Especially when watching the Captain America: The First Avenger trailer on YouTube.
