The Avengers Footage Revealed at D23

18 Comments

Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Chris Evans as Captain America on The Avengers Movie SetThe Avengers might have failed to assemble for Comic con this year, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to leave 2011 without showing off something, somewhere. That “something” turned out to be two scenes and that “somewhere” ended up being Disney’s shindig spectacular D23.

POTENTIAL SPOILERS BELOW.

According to EW, the first scene shown to the masses involved a testy exchange between Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and an imprisoned Loki (Tom Hiddleston) on the SHIELD Heli-carrier. Loki, we are told, is being contained in a super cage meant to hold the strongest of prisoners, namely the Hulk, who happens to be watching on (in the form of Mark Ruffalo) from a monitor in another room with SHIELD agent Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders).

The exchange between Fury and Loki goes something like this:

Loki: “How desperate are you, to call on such lost creatures to defend you?”

Fury: “How desperate am I? You threaten my world with war. You steel a force you can’t control. You talk about peace, but you kill because its fun… ”

Loki: “It burns you to be so close. To have the tesseract. To have power. And for what? A warm light for all mankind to share. Allow me to remind you of what real power is.”

Fury: “Well, let me know if ‘Real Power’ wants a magazine or something.”

Bruce Banner: “He really grows on you doesn’t he?”

The second scene shown also features Loki, but this time talking with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) in some sort of bar:

“Let’s do a head count,” Stark says, as the camera cuts to shots of Renner and Johansson as Hawkeye and Black Widow. “Two world class assassins …”

Cut to Thor: “A demigod …”

Cut to Captain America: “A living legend who actually lives up to the legend …”

Now we’re back with Loki and Stark: “And you, big fella!” Stark says. “You’ve managed to piss off every single one of them!”

“I have an army,” Loki snarls.

Stark gets right in the villainous god’s face. “We have a Hulk.”

Wonder what kind of “army” Loki has…? The kind that needs motion-captured suits, apparently.

“The Avengers” assemble May 4th, 2012 under Joss Whedon.

The film will star Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Clark Gregg, and Cobie Smulders.

    I think its gonna be the Skrulls but Thor’ed up a bit, along with Loki as the villains!!

  • Loeildu6clone

    and the Krees !!!

    If the Kree are in this at all, I think it’ll be a mention in explaining the Skrulls’ backstory. To have them show up en masse would kill the momentum of the film imo.

      I couldn’t agree more. In many ways this film could determine the next crop of Marvel films. If done right they could bring characters like The Inhumans, Ant-Man, Wasp, Ultron, Thanos and Galactus into the film universe. If they botch the intergalactic nuances we may never get to see them. I have a lot of faith in the way it will all play out and set up the next wave of big screen characters. They’ve been hitting the mark so far.

        Very true!! An intersting tit bit of info is that Tom Hiddleston says that in the wormhole (the one at the end of Thor) Loki makes a sahdy deal with what could be described as the Gangsters of the Nine Realms!! So i think it will be a very interesting take on the Skrulls!!!

        • Juggernaut

          Cool! I hope that they make this threat as ruthless and unrelenting as possible. The one thing that has been lacking in the Marvel movies across the board is the smackdown between the heroes and their arch enemies. The one who gave the most run for the money so far was Abomination. Even he was defeated fairly easily. Ironman’s showdown with Obediah and Whiplash were both very lackluster. Thor’s fight with Destroyer was cool but too short in my opinion. His fight with Loki was just okay and Cap Vs. Redskull was hardly a match that will go down in history. For all of these major players to be credible the villains need to be just short of victory with an epic fight.

            Whiplash was the Russian played by Mickey Rourke? he was just about the worse villian ever concieved. To be honest, you didnt’ even need iron man to take him out. A SWAT sniper would have a headshot on him before Iron Man could even suit up. And that’s why the I’m not a big fan of the Iron Man franchise so far – great Iron Man and suit but lame villians.

          • Juggernaut

            Getting away from the armored villains in the IM movies is key. They’ve done that twice now. I understand that Favreau’s vision was to be reality based with the tech and science based powers but a new dynamic can be brought in now that the other mystical and sci-fi elements have been introduced in the Thor and Cap movies. A new spin on foes like Mandarin, Fing Fang Foom and others are a possibility.

        Thanos and Galactus is where it’s at. Tired of these wimpy villians they’ve been using.

        • Juggernaut

          Thanos, Galactus, Ultron, Kang and Skrulls should all be villains for The Avengers movie and its inevitable franchise in my opinion.

  • Eagle Eye

    Right, now i know this is completily off subject, but…

    Im not saying this because i don’t like RDJ as Tony Stark, because i love him, but don’t you guys think that Ed Quinn would have played an EPIC Tony Stark?

    • Juggernaut

      It’s funny, when RDJ was announced as Stark I was completely unenthused. Then came Ironman. Once again I was wrong. I could see Quinn in the role, however, having seen RDJ in that role seals the deal and hardly leaves room for any fantasy casting. There are a lot of characters that I would re-cast but he certainly isn’t one of them.

      • Eagle Eye

        Is Hawkeye part of your recast list?

        • Juggernaut

          I always had Ed Burns pegged for Hawkeye until Renner was cast. I think that Renner has the right look and personality for the Ultimates take on Barton. He should be good in the role. I also like either Chris Pine (although he is my candidate for Flash), Bradley Cooper (my pick for a reboot of Daredevil) or Ryan Gosseling would be cool choices for him.

  • Boats&Hoes

    RDJ is the perfect Tony Stark.

    OMG the scene between Stark and Loki is legen wiat for it……dary!!!

  • Naw786

    The footage seems great.

    The line “We have a Hulk” is awesome.

    The scene between Stark and Loki might be good.

    I hope The Avengers turns out to be the best comic book movie of alll time.
