Collider spoke to Chris Evans about filming in New York City for The Avengers, the lack of a timetable for shooting Captain America 2, and how being the superhero has changed his life.
A lady Silver Surfer, a great Dr. Doom and the Thing in the background getting no love at all. A big Dragon Con cosplay win right here. Thanks to Comics Alliance (via Daily What) for the image. Head to CA for an awesome post with more kick ass cosplay.
There was obviously a bit of pressure on Chris to make another one but he can call the shots now, and I don’t think he’d have made a third for the sake of it. He really wanted to complete what’s, I guess, the trilogy. And he’s come up with something very special.
While the DC Universe reboots, some people are reshaped too. For example, Amanda Waller, the head of the Suicide Squad, was a little portly in the old comics and is now all skinny and sultry. Not too PC, DC. Thanks to Comics Alliance (via Daily What).
Me in a cape? I don’t fancy that. Tight tights? Nah!> I don’t think that’s right for me. I just respond more to true stories, that’s my flavor. […] I dunno. Luckily, I get to play some good bits that make people think I’m tough. Who knows! Ha ha ha! I just gravitate to those more testosterone-filled sort of parts than me playing something a bit more fairy-like.
POSSIBLE MINOR SPOILERS FOR MAN OF STEEL BELOW.
The Canadian Press (via CBM) has run an article about the fact that Man of Steel will be shooting the bulk of their production there over the next few months. They talk about how long they’ve been preparing and also an interesting call for extras. Fisherman?
While in Ucluelet, filming will take place on land owned by a local First Nation and on a municipal street, and the town will play the role of a small, Alaskan fishing village. Filming will also take place on the ocean and at an industrial dock. Already, casting calls for movie extras have taken place in Ucluelet and Nanaimo, B.C. Sought especially were older men and women with “character faces” and some “commercial fishermen types,” states advertisements placed on the Vancouver Island North Film Commission website.
