Default Re: The Avengers 2! The Official News and Speculation Thread

Maybe I'm strange, but when I saw those space whales slamming through buildings and causing them to collapse, I immediately thought that a whole lot of people inside died. Likewise, when Captain America said of people being shot by the soldiers on sky-cycles, "They're like fish in a barrel down there," it was clear that civilians were being slaughtered in the streets. I didn't need to be shown piles of dead bodies to understand what happened, and I assumed (incorrectly) that no one else would, either.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
