       So it turns out Michigan lost the chance to work with along side Marvel in the Avengers film 7 months ago and now again with Iron Man 3 the reason being some new law they have in place.

 has the scoop:

Seven months after “The Avengers” decided not to film in Michigan, the state has lost out on an opportunity to attract another blockbuster after negotiations with Marvel Studios to make “Iron Man 3” went awry.

The Hollywood studio had sought between $20 million to $30 million in incentives to film in Michigan, but the Michigan Film Office initially offered just $13 million, causing Marvel to launch talks with other states, said Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville, R-Monroe.

The Michigan Film Office upped its offer to $20 million, matching North Carolina, according to Richardville, who tried to attract the movie to the state. But he said Marvel chose to film in North Carolina because it guaranteed the money whereas Michigan’s deal was contingent on future legislative approval. Marvel did not return several requests seeking comment.

“They were more prepared than we were to win that deal,” said Richardville, who was critical of the Michigan Film Office’s handling of the negotiations. “We were seen as a real player and this is a real blow to that reputation.”

The Film Office confirmed the $20-million offer. “We put a competitive and fiscally responsible offer on the table,” said spokeswoman Michelle Begnoche. “They, like projects every day, had to make a business decision.”

The rejection shows the difficulty Michigan faces in attracting major movie productions to the state after dropping its generous incentives in favor of a more limited program.

So here is a gallery via Celebuzz, Just Jared, SplashNewsOnline, and Cinemarcado with all the latest Avengers photos including one piece of artwork with Loki [POSSIBLE SPOILERS]:

Here is an interview via Total Film with Joss Whedon speaking about The Hulk and the Avengers:

Total Film: Are you basing The Avengers on any particular comic book series?

Whedon: No, it’s an amalgam. There’s some originals, some Ultimates and some characters from different runs-and hopefully some new stuff too. We’re certainly not going to have Hulk killing hundreds of people. It’s not as cute on film as it is in the comics.

Who are The Avengers going to be fighting?

Well we all know Loki’s in the house, beyond that I’m not saying!

Will we be seeing any new villains from outside the Marvel Universe?

We’re definitely going to see something new…but I’m playing this one close to the chest!

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!
