The Avengers: Age Of Ultron Teaser Trailer

Ultron is one of the biggest foes when it comes to The Avengers.  I think its safe to say Ultron’s origin will be a little different when compared to what we have seen in the comics.  Tony Stark will most likely be its creator and then all hell will break loose.  Its really too early to say, but us superhero fans can sure have fun speculating about what’s going to happen in the expanding Marvel film universe.  Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Guardians of the Galaxy, and X-Men: Days of Future Past are just a taste of what’s to come.

I’m thoroughly enjoying Marvel’s Agents of Shield that airs on ABC.  Having it connected to the Marvel film universe really helps to keep an interest.  It was great to see Samuel L. Jackson make an appearance last week in character as Nick Fury.  Many fans weren’t expecting to see anyone else from the films in the show that early.  DC has a way to go before catching up to Marvel.  Man Of Steel was a good start.

“Pin-Up” of the Week: The Avengers – Iron Man Disney Soda Fountain L.E. Pin

Right next door to the El Capitan Theater in Los Angelas you’ll find the Disney Soda Fountain & Studio Store.  One of the major events that fans look forward to are the new pin releases that draw a lot of people.  This pin, along with four others, were sold last year to celebrate the release of The Avengers.  It is modeled after the 1968 #47 comic book and is limited to only 300 pins.  They sell for $20.00 to $30.00.  On May 11, 2013 the Disney Soda Fountain & Studio Store will be selling six different pins to commemorate Iron Man 3.  This pin set has been pre-selling for crazy prices.

The 2013 summer movie season has officially begun.  Today I saw Iron Man 3 and really enjoyed it.  You get to see Tony Stark battle a lot of demons after the events that took place during The Avengers.  He has been building one type of armor after another while thinking of different situations that they could be used for.  In the final battle we get to see all of these armors fighting together.

The Mark 39 Sub Orbital Suit “Gemini” is the only armor that I don’t remember actually seeing in the movie, yet they let us know it exists.  It would also be the only one Stark didn’t destroy.  Perhaps they’re saving it for when he goes to meet the Guardians of the Galaxy.  I love these movies and I hope Robert Downey Jr comes back to play Tony Stark.  I really can’t see anyone else playing that character.

Trading Cards Help Unite The Avengers



Joss Whedon has officially set the bar pretty high for this summer’s superhero blockbusters.  Perhaps all future superhero movies in general.  Yesterday I witnessed Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Nick Fury, Loki and many many many more just go at it on the big screen.  This was something I had been looking forward to seeing since that post-credit scene at the end of the first Iron Man film back in 2008.  The Avengers is pure superhero gold.  Every actor and character interacted well together and they did a fantastic job of giving everyone their own designated time on the big screen.  Attention was given to all characters and not centered around one in particular.  The Avengers is a team movie and that’s the way it should be.  Lots of attention was given to the little details like why Thor wasn’t going to see Jane Foster even though he made it back to Earth despite the Bifrost being destroyed.  Captain America’s suit was another area that they touched on.  A lot of fans, even Steve Rodgers himself thought it might look a little outdated, but they explained that an old fashion look just might be what the world needed right now.

Among all the action, one of my favorite elements of the film was the use of trading cards and how they helped The Avengers to unite.  Near the beginning of the movie, you can see that Agent Phil Coulson is a big fan of Captain America.  Agent Coulson tells Cap that he has all of his trading cards, they’re vintage, and in near mint condition.  Cap doesn’t seem all that interested.  While The Avengers are fighting among each other with their clashing egos, Agent Coulson gets killed by Loki.  Nick Fury is seen holding Agent Coulson’s collection of Captain America trading cards.  Fury uses the cards as a way for The Avengers to stop their petty fighting and work together.  He tells them that Agent Coulson never did get Captain America to sign them.  The bloody, unsigned cards are then thrown on the table.  The Avengers finally get their act together and find a way to work as a team.  If The Avengers couldn’t find a way to work together, S.H.I.E.L.D would have been forced to use the Tesseract technology to power a new line of weapons they were working on known as Phase 2.  Agent Coulson believed that they could all get along and Phase 2 wouldn’t be needed.  It took Coulson’s death for them to realize this.  Nick Fury lied a little telling them the cards were in Agent Coulson’s pocket when he was killed.  They were actually in his locker.  I love seeing trading cards make their way into movies, especially something this big.

Coming up next in this saga is Iron Man 3 due out May 2013, and Thor 2 set for November 2013.  I would love to see Nick Fury make an appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man later this summer, but I doubt that will happen.  This sure is a great time to be alive if your a major superhero fan.

The Tesseract is able to transport individuals to various worlds.  I don’t believe that Red Skull from Captain America: The First Avenger died.  He was transported somewhere.  But where?
