The Mideval Avengers.


It always pains me to find incredible art out there on the web, and not have the background information on the artist to give them their due.  Luckily, the housemate of the wildly talented illustrator that drew the photos above posted his deviant art link into the photo.

Continuing the epic big-screen adventures started in Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, Marvel’s The Avengers is the superhero team up of a lifetime. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as SHIELD, finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.

And… I’d love to show you guys the new picture they have of the Hulk… but they don’t actually have one.

Sherlock Holmes 2 and The Avengers.


As an avid Sherlock Holmes fan since I was a young lad, the release of the Guy Ritchie adaptation was the source of a lot of excitement. For anyone who hasn’t seen the 2009 Sherlock Holmes, the end of the movie was a blatant announcement that there would be a sequel. Of course I’ve been waiting patiently for a trailer, but I had to settle for 2 new posters released by Yahoo.

And as if the posters for “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” wasn’t enough to get my heart rate going, I also caught a glimpse of the new official Avengers poster.  It’s a hyper-realistic illustration of all the main characters, including Black Widow and Hawk-Eye.

The Avengers Starts Production.

Based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1963, “Marvel’s The Avengers” brings together the mightiest super hero characters as they all assemble together on screen for the first time. The star studded cast of super heroes will be joined by Cobie Smulders (“How I Met Your Mother) as Agent Maria Hill of S.H.I.E.L.D., as well as Tom Hiddleston (“Wallander”) and Stellan Skarsgård (“Angels & Demons,” “Mamma Mia!”) who will both reprise their respective roles as Loki and Professor Erik Selvig from the upcoming Marvel Studios’ feature “Thor.”

Marvel Studios most recently produced “Iron Man 2” which was released in theatres on May 7, 2010. The sequel to “Iron Man,” starring Robert Downey, Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow as well as Don Cheadle, Scarlett Johansson and Mickey Rourke, took the number one spot its first weekend with a domestic box office gross of $128.1 million. To date the film has earned over $620 million in worldwide box office receipts.

In the summer of 2008, Marvel produced the summer blockbuster movies, “Iron Man” and “The Incredible Hulk.”  “Iron Man,” in which Robert Downey, Jr. originally dons the super hero’s powerful armor alongside co-stars Terrence Howard, Jeff Bridges and Gwyneth Paltrow, was released May 2, 2008 and was an immediate box office success. Garnering the number one position for two weeks in a row, the film brought in over $100 million its opening weekend and grossed over $571 million worldwide. On June 13, 2008, Marvel released “The Incredible Hulk” marking its second number one opener of that summer. The spectacular revival of the iconic green goliath grossed over $250 million in worldwide box office receipts.

Captain America: Official Trailer.


During the Super Bowl, the Captain America teaser was the one I was looking forward to the most, after I missed it, and looked it up online after the game, I was honestly sourly disappointed by what I saw.  So after the hearing that the full trailer had just showed up online, I wasn’t too enthusiastic.  After actually watching it however, my mind has changed a little bit.  The action seems a bit better, and the movie makes a bit more sense than it appeared during the 30 second Super Bowl spot.  And although I know for a fact that Captain America isn’t found frozen in ice as in the comics, (which my comic book loving sister is pissed about), my faith in the movie has gotten a bit stronger.  Check the method below.
