I have been keeping a close eye on this compitition held by IGN. I think it’s a neat idea because with each match they add some custom artwork from Johnathan Moore. So I would like to know, how do you guys feel about the match ups they have going on? and who would you vote for? and who would you like to see be matched up? To make things a little clearer we’ll have the movie and tv versions of the Star Wars Universe and the comic versions of The Marvel Universe

Wolverine vs Darth Maul= Wolverine 65.38%

Luke Skywalker vs Spider-Man= Luke Skywalker 59.26%

Now the Ultimate Battle:

It’s Over! with the clear winner being MARVEL with 75% of the vote! was there ever any doubt?

AWESOME SAUCE! This movie keeps on getting better and better!

Last Saturday the cast from The Avengers gathered at the Disney D23 Expo and showed off some clips of the movie. No clips are available, but IGN was there and this is what they had to say:


The presentation began with an assemblage of the “Avenger Initiative” codas and set-ups that were included in Marvel’s past few films (Iron Man 1 and 2, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger), essentially creating a prologue for how S.H.I.E.L.D. got the superhero team together. A team that director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) says was put together to fight the battles that we can’t. 

Feige then introduced a clip to the audience. The scene takes place aboard S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Helicarrier where there’s a terse exchange between Fury and Loki (Hiddleston), who is caged inside a hi-tech chamber encased by glass walls. Loki sports much longer hair and an altered green and gold costume from he what he had in Thor. (Indeed, all of the characters have new duds in the film.) 

Fury warns Loki that if he tries to escape, or even touches the glass, he’ll plummet 30,000 feet to his doom. Fury then opens a portal to reveal the dark and stormy sky outside. Loki remarks that the cage he’s in was built for someone different from him — Hulk. 

Loki turns to the surveillance camera, acknowledging those looking on elsewhere aboard the ship: Black Widow, Thor, Cap, Dr. Bruce Banner and, at her post, Agent Maria Hill (Smulders). Loki teases Fury on how it must hurt them to have the Tesseract (Cosmic Cube), but to what end? Only to then see what real power is (meaning himself)? Fury glibly tells Loki to let him know if the “real power” would like a magazine while he’s in his cell, a very Whedon-esquetouch. 

The sizzle reel footage showed quick flashes of the Avengers in action, intercut with a scene of Tony Stark dressed in a Black Sabbath t-shirt and making himself a drink (of course) as he addresses Loki. Tony runs down who he has on his side: Two master assassins (Widow and Hawkeye), a demigod, and a living legend who more than lives up to his legend. Loki remarks, “We have an army.” To which Tony replies, drink in hand, “We have a Hulk.” Cut to a close-up of Hulk roaring. The footage ended then, but the nerdgasms continued. 

Much to the surprise and disappointment of the fanboy press there, Marvel DID NOT REVEAL what their two mystery movies are that are slated to open in 2014. 

When the cast (none of whom spoke save for Downey) came out onstage afterward, Downey prompted Disney to run the footage again so that the cast could see it, much to the audiences’ delight. That was up there with any great Hall H moment from San Diego Comic-Con. 

Overall, The Avengers indeed looks as cool and promising as fans have long wanted. It’s still surreal to see all those heroes together onscreen. Summer 2012 can’t arrive fast enough!
