Avengers Tower

(NOTE: That image above is not from Cap 2, it’s from The Avengers.)

When Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters April 4, be on the look out for Tony Stark’s Avengers Tower. As a hidden Easter Egg.

At the end of The Avengers, the Stark Tower was decimated, leaving only the “A” as a tease of what’s to come. There was also a brief scene where Stark is clearly seen working on an Avengers Tower. In Iron Man 3, Stark never visits New York as he’s plenty busy in California, Tennessee and Florida but that doesn’t mean the tower hasn’t been under construction. Speaking to /Film, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told us the completed tower makes a brief cameo in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Read More »

Trivia: ‘The Avengers’ Almost Got an R Rating

Thor Coulson Avengers R Rating

To date, every single Marvel Cinematic Universe has been rated PG-13. That’s the sweet spot for big-budget four-quadrant tentpoles like these; a PG-13 lets a movie be edgy enough to attract the grown-ups but not so hardcore it keeps out kids. But as Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently revealed, getting that rating has been a trickier task for some films than others.

While the latest Marvel outing, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, easily made the PG-13 cut, Feige revealed that 2012′s The Avengers initially got an R rating from the MPAA. The filmmakers recut the movie and submitted it again — only to get another R rating. Hit the jump to find out which specific scene was the sticking point.

Loki and Thor (header size)

One of the many fun things about a new Marvel movie being released is an opportunity to see the older ones on the big screen again. For the release of The Avengers and Iron Man 3, Marvel organized theatrical marathons of the films leading up to the new movie, and the plan is  no different for this coming November 7. That’s when AMC Theaters will host screenings of Thor, The Avengers, and end with Thor: The Dark World hours before it opens. Read More »

Avengers Star Wars Hot Toys

This might be the coolest image ever. A Reddit user took his completed Hot Toys collectibles of Marvel’s The Avengers and dressed them up as Star Wars characters.

Captain America Winter Soldier Concept Header

When aliens invade New York and a team of superheroes comes out of nowhere to defeat them, the world is going change quite a bit. This global fallout to events in Marvel’s The Avengers has been referenced in Iron Man 3, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and even the trailer to Thor: The Dark World. The film after that, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, will certainly deal with a similar landscape too, especially since it features S.H.I.E.L.D., the agency at the center of The Avengers.

But where do all these films fall on the timeline? Iron Man 3 takes places six months after The Avengers, Thor: The Dark World is rumored to take place about year after and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is likely somewhere in between (Extremis baddies, anyone?). That leaves The Winter Soldier and, according to co-star Scarlett Johansson, the film takes place two years after The Avengers, suggesting much more will have change after Iron Man 3 and Thor 2.
