Besides being a good read about the role of scientists as advisors for the upcoming "Thor" Movie, this "Cosmic Variance" article drops a couple of cool tidbits. Namely (emphasis mine):
Kevin Feige, president of production at Marvel Studios, is a huge proponent of having the world of these films ultimately “make sense.” It’s not our world, obviously, but there needs to be a set of “natural laws” that keeps things in order — not just for Iron Man and Thor, but all the way up to Doctor Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme who will get his own movie before too long.
There's going to be a Doctor Strange movie! I always thought he was pretty cool. Also (again, emphasis mine):
One was constructing a coherent framework for the Marvel universe — ultimately, this story about Thor the thunder god is going to have to be compatible with Tony Stark’s Iron Man world, since the two characters are both part of the Avengers. (I also got to read the script for that, and yes — it is as great as the rumors suggest.)
Has there ever been a better time to be a geek? I mean, a geek who didn't found Microsoft, that is.
I am officially in "I can't hear you!" fingers-in-my-ears period regarding Thor. I don't want to see any more previews; I'm going to see it, I'm excited about it, and I don't want to know any more. I want to be as surprised as possible and just let the movie happen to me.
But this kind of background stuff is cool, yo!
I saw it yesterday and the only thing that I didn’t like was that it ended!
So the whole avengers movie franchise is set in Earth-199999 and it has its differences but ultimately they did good by the comic characters we know and love.
I can’t wait to see The Avengers movie it’s gonne be LEGEN… wait for it… DARY!
Iron man 2 was good, but I felt it could have been more. So I was a bit worried that the movies that Marvel are in the process of making were going the way of all superhero franchise movies before… Then I saw Thor today.. and OMG I was so wrong. It is awesome. Like Alex said I was only sad it ended if this standard is kept up by Captain America, which won’t be hard with Hugo Weaving as the Skull We are truly in geek nirvana…or should I say Valhalla. Excelsior Marvel.. Excelsior.
I just saw Thor and thought it was quite good; I didn’t like it as much as the first Iron Man, but it was far more consistent and better paced than IM2. And Chris Hemsworth was great as Thor. I’m still not sold on the costume, though.
Can’t wait to see the interplay between Downey and Hemsworth in Avengers.
I saw it last Saturday and thought it was totally awesome. The only comment I’ll give besides that is: Be careful about taking your wives/girlfriends to see it. My wife is totally smitten with Chris Hemsworth.
Oh and I know this isn’t completely related as it’s a “Marvel” movie thread, but I just saw the latest Green Lantern Trailer and my doubts are starting to fade really fast….
Here it is: http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi4162755865/
Yup, saw it last week and it was great and fun, I’ll maybe see it again (save that I HATE 3D and will have no choice).
I advised it to my neighbours and they loved it too 🙂
Check out this new trailer for “CONAN the Barbarian” I thought this movie was going to be a dud, but the trailer has changed my mind!
It comes out in out town tomorrow. I already bought my ticket online!
OK I THOUGHT IT WAS PRETTY COOL. DID ANYONE STAY AFTER THE CREDITS THOUGH? I DIDN’T UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY WERE LOOKING AT. YOU KNOW THE THING IN THE THING ( FILTERING FOR PEOPLE NOT YET SEEN THE MOVIE LOL )
Tool, whoah, caps! You can read more about the thing at the end in the thing here.
