I would love to see Ruth Wilson as the Amora the Enchantress and Winona Ryder as Hela. That would be so epic.

Ruth is just *my* Amora. I feel like Luther is basically her MCU villianness audition tape.

Winona Ryder would be good, very MS-like choice I think.

Nice I agree with the two of you. Btw, how did they make Cap look so small. I mean before the SSS. Does anyone know this?

Brawny "Captain America" saved by "Skinny Steve"




LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The story of Captain America is well covered in comic book lore: a scrawny, bullied orphan named Steve Rogers is chosen for a top secret government project during World War II in which he becomes a test subject for a super serum.

The serum transforms him into a strong and able soldier named Captain America, and he leads the U.S. Army in its fight against the Nazis.
Actor Chris Evans, who plays the title character in Friday's release of "Captain America: The First Avenger," put on 15 lbs. of muscle to play the role.
The problem: he got too big for Steve Rodgers. Solution: "Skinny Steve."
Having literally built Evans into what the film's director Joe Johnston called "the perfect human specimen," the movie makers had to figure out how the 6 ft. tall actor with the muscled-up physique could convincingly portray the pre-serum Steve Rogers, a scrawny kid of a mere 90-something lbs.

Hollywood has dealt with on screen body changes in many ways over the years. The cast and crew of the 2000 film "Cast Away" took a year-long break so its star, Tom Hanks -- who first gained 50 lbs. for the role -- could drop weight to look like he'd been stranded on a tropical island for years.

One option for "Captain America" was to superimpose Evans' head on a skinny body double, much like the technology employed by filmmaker David Fincher in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" when Brad Pitt had to age backward.
Last year Fincher employed the same technique in "The Social Network," in which Armie Hammer played Tyler Winklevoss and identical twin brother Cameron Winklevoss, which meant digitally putting Hammer's head on actor Josh Pence's body.

'SKINNY STEVE' TO THE RESCUE:

On "Captain America," there was no way to take a year off because its backers at Marvel Studios have been on a tight schedule rolling out their superheroes one by one -- including the recent "Thor" -- so audiences will be familiar with most of them when they join forces in next summer's "The Avengers."

Like Fincher in "Social Network," director Johnston initially hired a body double and used the head replacement system in a scene where Steve Rogers was lying on a table. But he quickly realized it wouldn't work for other sequences.

"Chris moves in such a unique way; he doesn't move like anybody else," Johnston told Reuters. "The body double could not move like him. As hard as he tried to watch Chris and duplicate the movements, it just wasn't the same."

That was perfectly fine with Evans, who was not keen on having another actor involved in creating the iconic role.

"The beginning part of the movie is so crucial to get the audience invested in who Steve is, I didn't want to share that part of the performance with another actor," Evans, 30, told Reuters. "I talked to Joe about it and thankfully, he agreed."

Instead of the body double/superimposed head, the filmmakers used a "shrinking" technique and computers to basically erase portions of Evans' strong physique on screen.

"We filmed over 250 shots of Chris and used digital technology to 'shrink' him down to what we called 'Skinny Steve,'" said Johnston.

"It's pretty amazing," added Evans. "They took shape out of my jaw line, they shrunk my skeleton and they made my shoulders less broad."

While it may sound easy, it wasn't. Each time Evans' body went through the digital nips and tucks, it created empty space in the background which needed to be filled in.
Multiple shots had to be filmed with green screens just to superimpose the scenery that would normally have been there had bulky Evans really been little, scrappy Steve Rogers.
"It was a very arduous process," said Johnston. "It took all of pre-production and most of production to do all 250 shots."

Was looking at this too; you may be right. I was thinking that it was just nighttime, and this is how the prisoners sleep (alas, no bunk beds for baddies). In the early version of this scene in the first teaser trailer--when Thor approaches Loki's cell and Loki has the long curly hair--he was sitting on the floor, leaning against the wall, just like some of the prisoners in the background.

Not movie concerning but, 2/10/13 (yesterday) Marvel released OGN THOR: SEASON ONE which is a retelling of origin story in modern day setting, and I must admit it was pretty good. Good art (I would say great, but some may find it too cartoonish), nice story flow (in Dr.Strange SEASON ONE, for example, story was bland and all over the places imo). As an added bonus it have a Jane/Thor romance that is believable and nice and Jane who is strong and competent while feminine.

Ohh and i think this "Internet media" recap page is pretty funny:

Best cast. Best storylines. Potential for most epic and operatic. Most fun. Best lead character. Best villains. Just the best, period.
I think it's a missed opportunity that you didn't put your prediction in bold.

The art is done by Pepe Larraz, who did some issues from that awful Fraction's run of Thor. Pretty good artist, imo.

I think it will be true for my case at least. The first movie has very tough competition with Iron Man but I think it beat all the rest and TDW certainly has a great chance to top every other MCU movie by the looks of things, which would put it way above the IM1+2 combo (although I'm one of those that enjoy IM2).

I did like the art of that run. Even if the stories were not all that good for the most part.

Yeah, it was good art. Both Pasqual ferry and Pepe Larraz shared similar styles, and it mostly worked.

At this point for me it is,

TFA
The Avengers
Iron Man
Thor
IM3
TIH
IM2

And TWS is looking incredible. So right now, I am probably going to take Cap even though my favorite characters are Thor and Loki.

So I'm catching up on the last few pages of this thread, but I wanted to post something in regards to the (now probably no longer a current topic) discussion of Thor and Malekith's battle seemingly passing through various realms as they fight..

It really reminds me of Thor #400, where Thor is fighting Surtur. Thor becomes huge, and they basically hop from world to world as they battle with each other. There are other battles going on, so every few pages there is just a panel or two of Thor and Surtur locked in battle, with a different backdrop each time.

Even though this is a fight with Malekith in T:TDW, I just love that this idea may be being roughly translated to the big screen.

Here are a couple of samples from that fight:
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:




In conclusion: Great time to be a Thor fan!!!!!!! I'm geeking out on a daily basis!

She's mortal, and unless Marvel decides to implement the apples of Idunn or some other way of making her live much longer, there is no way she can be Queen if she decides to stay with Thor. And what's he going to do if she can't become *immortal* like him? Abandon his duties as Asgard's crown prince/king to live on Midgard with her for the next 50-ish years? Jane's going to die of old age eventually, and even if they found some way to greatly increase her life expectancy, she has no idea what it would mean to be the girlfriend and possibly wife of a prince/king. She's a science major living in a country that supports democracy, not monarchy as on Asgard, and has never been around that sort of thing before. Sif, on the other hand, has. I don't mean to bash Jane, but I really cannot see her relationship with Thor working in the long-term.
