Disney Confidential – Captain America, Thor, Ant Man, The Avengers, and more.
Hey there guys and gals Anonymouse here. Wow there is so much Disney Marvel Movie news I hardly know where to start! I think instead of a long drawn out post, I am going to highlight all the things that happened at the San Diego Comic Con.
If you were in attendance at the Comic Con you got to see:
- An Unfinished Scene of Captain America
- Thor Trailer
- Teaser for The Avengers
Here is a video of the cast of the Avengers:
Jeremy Renner will play Clint Barton a.k.a. Hawkeye and Mark Ruffalo replaces Edward Norton as Bruce Banner a.k.a. the Hulk. They add to the already stacked lineup of Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Clark Gregg, Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth, as well as producer Kevin Feige and director Joss Whedon.
So that answers the question who is directing The Avengers - Joss Whedon. I also read an article this weekend talking about Joss Whedon’s good friend Nathan Fillion not playing Ant Man in Marvel’s upcoming film. He did have this to say about it:
You know what, the internet is a vast wealth of information, 90% of it false. I’m working ten months out of the year doing a television program [Castle] where I don’t get a lot of opportunities to sneak out after work and do other projects, so I’m kind of locked in. If you just look at the logistics of it, I’m really busy. Even if all of the stars were to align, I wouldn’t have time to do it.
From what I read the 3-D “Thor” footage was chock full of surprises, including close-up shots of Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Anthony Hopkins as Odin and Tom Hiddleson as Loki, as well as a reveal of the Destroyer and the death of Odin. Also featured was Natalie Portman as Jane Foster and Kat Dennings as Darcy in some bonus footage.
Speaking of Odin here is a video of his throne that was on display at Comic Con
