[trailer] Avengers! My day is made

Uh, why can't they just make an Avengers tie-in show?

So there's nothing in the link suggesting time slot, audience or format. For all we know Joss is in charge of a Marvel saturday morning cartoon for ABC.

Yes, and I hope Joss is doing the Dance of Joy now as well.

Oh, I looked up more information on this and found this: http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/movies/n...

I love this approach. The character moments were my favorite part of Avengers.

F**k no, this makes me feel bad.

Also, you are wrong, think about what they were doing when or just before they had those personal moments in the movie (except for when Tony and Ms. Piper were talking in the beginning).

There's already an Avenger's sunday morning cartoon show on Disney XD.

edit: it's pretty awesome

I'm wrong for enjoying the character moments in the Avengers?

No, Joss Whedon is wrong, but I'm hoping I'll get flamed less for blaming you.
Still, we're a long way from opening day and I will see it regardless.

What I was trying to point out is that those character moments you enjoyed were not in the context of "smaller" and that more personal and painful would ruin the movie.

An ugly thing to conisder about Heroes for Hire, beyond their obscurity: the TV decision makers think a non-white lead is a huge risk (and honestly, mass audiences haven't been knocking themselves over to prove them wrong). ABC doesn't seem like the sort of network to defy that.

You focus on the white guy. Danny Rand, the Iron Fist, billionaire, blah blah blah. Luke Cage is there but more of the urban sidekick to lend street cred to the David Carradine-esque character. I mean, the series was a mash-up of blaxplotation and kung-fu, do you really expect much?

I like Immortal Iron Fist and I think Luke Cage has been great in the New Avengers, but i think the TV show would be Burn Notice with super heroes. Helping the locals out with the overarching "Super" background story.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean, Roland, but I like what I like and I suspect it's different from what you like

Evidently there was a four-issue comic focused on the Cleanup Crew that had to go in and take care of everything after the super heroes trashed the city. I've seen that idea tossed about a few times. I can see that doing pretty well, actually.

Regarding the TV show, I think he should make a show about a futuristic spaceship crew doing superhuman acts of goodness in a world hell-bent on trying to stop them. Just for kicks, they could throw in a bad-ass, superhero girl with a mysterious background that slowly gets revealed to the audience as the story goes along.

They're already making a Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

No one would watch that. I bet that even if they made it as a movie, it'd take forever to make its money back.

He'd probably also kill the best character out of nowhere.

Burn Notice with super heroes

HOLY sh*t YOU ARE A GENUIS

This is minor thread necromancy, but i'd just like to reiterate my belief that if someone would just combine Boston Legal and Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law, a She-Hulk TV show would be 800,000 flavors of awesome sauce. It can even be animated, I don't care.

Just, for god's sake, get Paget Brewster involved somehow.

If I were Joss I would work the second movie around the death of Captain America. It might just be my love of the character, but he is the heart of The Avengers and he is the the team's ethical core. Also, if they are ramping up to the grand outer space plot lines they could make the second movie about the Civil War (Marvel) and the third about taking on the evil beasties from the far reaches of the Universe.

I imagine they won't kill Captain America until the current actor declares he is no longer interested in the role.

Probably a third film plot point, but there is always US Agent.

I just love the pathos of Cap dying. Think "Out of Gas" but with Cap instead of Mal. It even has the flashback structure Joss mentions in the article linked earlier.

Looks like it's confirmed the TV pilot is based on S.H.I.E.L.D.

Sweet, will watch. So I'm thinking it will be an original cast of mostly-normals, maybe with cameos or Very Special Episodes featuring the main Avengers stars as time permits?

Well if there's one thing I have faith in Joss to do, it's "group of snarky misfits go out and fight evil".

Wow 2015 is a long way off.

So that's how they can do it on the cheap, mostly humans with one main set - the helicarrier.

The Avengers will be back in theaters for the Labor Day weekend starting Friday and going until September 6th! I know what I"m doing after PAX.

Sheesh. I wondered why it wasn't at the $2 theater yet...

Me too. Still haven't seen it, and plan to shortly.

Deleted Captain America scene, leading in to boxing at the gym:

Goddamn I wish they'd kept that in.

Whedon said it didn't fit the flow of the movie. It's a good scene, but having just watched the Bluray with deleted scenes, I'm inclined to agree.

Oh, and the Item 47 short film is TERRIBLE. TERRIBLE!

Chin up Cap.

I can see how it would've hurt the pace, but I think what it adds in terms of emotional investment would've been worth it.
