Is it just me or does it look like Black Panther is about to or in the middle of dancing on that poster?
A Jeremy Renner/Elizabeth Olsen interview:
That poster looks EPIC! Too bad I won't be able to see it in IMAX, but only in regular 2D/3D.
what has me also curious is that what appears to be the opening sequence is Falcon, SW, Cap and Widow together. if this is before the rift in the team why have we not seen any pics etc of Vision or WM on this mission? maybe they needed to be more stealthy? not needed?
The clip that was just released is the opening action sequence, so it's definitely before the rift.
Vision and War Machine are CGI heavy characters, that's likely why were haven't seen much of them outside of a few clips here and there. I imagine Marvel also wants to hold back on revealing too much. They got a LOT of complaints about how Age of Ultron was marketed. They gave away a lot of money shots in the trailers and TV spots. This time around they're really sticking to basically the same trailer with a few quick shots of new stuff every now and then.
A nice fresh thread to start the week.
Yeah, kind of appropriate eh?
Bios for all the characters.
TEAM CAPTAIN AMERICA
Steve Rogers/ Captain America — Steve Rogers is leading the new Avengers team on missions to safeguard humanity, but when collateral damage sparks governmental oversight, Steve, in a surprising about-face, rejects the regulation — in opposition to Tony Stark’s compliance. As the Avengers take sides, Steve is running another agenda that threatens all of them by stepping out of the bounds of the law to save and defend his best friend Bucky Barnes — the infamous Winter Soldier.
COSTUME UPDATE: There were subtle changes in Captain America’s costume — color was one and subtle changes to all the details and cut. It became a combination of the stealth suit from Winter Soldier and the Avengers: Age of Ultron suit.
Sam Wilson/Falcon — Sam Wilson’s Falcon is now a full-fledged Avenger and he is fiercely loyal to Captain America and the team. Opposing the government and Tony Stark at the same time poses no problem for the winged Avenger, who sets out to recruit Ant-Man as an added bonus for Team Cap.
COSTUME UPDATE: Falcon’s suit is more high-tech and embellished with red on the wings and modified jet pack.
Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier — Bucky Barnes aka Winter Soldier reappears, this time with more memories of the past solidifying and hopefully counterpunching his dangerous and unstoppable actions. He trusts Steve and though he has no skin in the game of Avenger vs. Avenger, he allies with Captain America against Iron Man for his own redemption.
COSTUME UPDATE: The storyline dictates Bucky is in civilian clothes for the majority of the film but in the finale he dons a costume reminiscent of The Winter Soldier but more tactical.
Scott Lang/Ant-Man — After a recent run-in with Falcon made Scott Lang’s Ant-Man a household name to the Avengers, Sam Wilson recruits the unwitting Ant-Man for Cap’s team. His ability to diminish in size can wreak havoc against the most powerful opponent, even if he is someone star-struck in Captain America’s presence.
COSTUME UPDATE: The new suit is streamlined and more high-tech. The helmet no longer has cables that snap into the back of it and antennas shoot up from the bottom and the regulator also has no dial on it.
Clint Barton/Hawkeye – Drawn out of retirement to stand beside Captain America, Hawkeye brings his superior archery skills along with some new weapons to the fight. A military man through and through, Hawkeye does not have any use for politics. He is there for Cap at any cost — against anyone, even his closest friends.
COSTUME UPDATE: A new look with a full-sleeved jacket instead of a vest, making it less comic-book in cut and more tactical and military based — much sleeker and simpler. Purple in color instead of burgundy like previous films.
Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch — With her powers of mental manipulation and telekinesis, Wanda brings a new dimension to the newly formed Avengers team. Just as Wanda begins to feel like she is no longer an outsider, she is unwillingly at the center of the controversy over government regulation of the Avengers. Following Hawkeye, the one Avenger that she knows will always have her back, Wanda joins Cap’s team.
TEAM IRON MAN
Tony Stark/Iron Man — Tony Stark is a different man — he’s made an honest assessment of the recent events with Ultron and, in a shocking conservative turnaround, is in agreement with world governments that the Avengers should be regulated. This move pits Iron Man against Captain America on a political level but their personal conflict runs deeper — and down a more dangerous path than either could have ever anticipated or imagined.
Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow — Despite her loyalty and friendship with Steve Rogers since the early days of the now-defunct S.H.I.E.L.D., Natasha disagrees with his position and in a surprise move joins Tony Stark’s team, in support of governmental oversight. Always strategic in her thinking and heroic in her actions, Black Widow is an asset that Tony needs — but one that he cannot control.
COSTUME UPDATE: Black Widow is much sleeker in this film. Her suit is not leather, but a more tactical stretch cordura rather than the usual printed stretch fabrics used, although there is some of that in strategic places for mobility. Has a more cat-suit feel to it, closer to to the comics.
Col. James ‘Rhodey’ Rhodes/War Machine — Rhodey’s friendship with Tony Stark goes way back and his loyalty to him goes hand-in-hand with his loyalty to his country as the Avenger known as War Machine — the Tony Stark-designed ultimate protector. As a military man, Rhodey agrees with Stark in favor of government regulation and brings War Machine to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Iron Man in the fight.
T’Challa/Black Panther — T’Challa’s father, T’Chaka, the King of Wakanda, joins the ranks of those who support government regulation after innocent citizens are collateral damage from an Avengers’ mission. But when events turn ugly, T’Challa must reveal himself as Black Panther and follow his own path. With his own agenda driving him, Black Panther aligns with Iron Man to achieve his own deeply personal goal.
Vision — Since his conception at the hands of Tony Stark in the battle against Ultron, Vision has been accepted as a member of the Avengers team but he is still trying to find his footing in the human world and understand the extent of his seemingly limitless power. Vision sides with Tony in the conflict as he believes, logically, it is the safest way to protect the world.
COSTUME UPDATE: Vision has the ability to create a projected disguise he can change at will that makes him appear as he wishes, showing an affinity for Howard Stark’s attache, Edwin Jarvis.
Peter Parker/Spider-Man — Recruited personally by Tony Stark, teenager Peter Parker aka Spider-Man brings his youthful energy and exceptional — though not totally mastered — skills to Iron Man’s team.
Fox is putting [BLACKOUT]Wolverine[/BLACKOUT] in the new X-Men Apocalypse trailer. Looks like they are trying to keep their share of the hype after the massive positive reaction of CW
I really wish I hadn't seen that
I don't think it's a big deal 'cause [BLACKOUT]he was rumored to be in it for a long while IIRC[/BLACKOUT]
They literally released an X-Men trailer less than a month ago
Guess Apocalypse isn't getting people anywhere near as hyped as Fox hoped
I will literally wait until Apocalypse hits Netflix unless I'm blown away by the next trailer or the reviews are glowing. The franchise just does NOTHING for me. The last 2 movies have been solid, but it hasn't got me lining up for the next one. Couldn't tell you why.
Days of Future Past was real good
Those character bios are very interesting. Especially the bit about Vision projecting a human disguise. I guess we will see [BLACKOUT]Jarvis from Agent Carter[/BLACKOUT] in the movie?
yeah that bit caught my attention too
cool little detail
That would be our first true TV crossover!
New trailer was always going to be presented at CinemaCon. Brian Singer said it would be the first trailer to show the true scope of the movie.
DoFP was a master class in plotting and editing. Overrated but a really good movie.
But I'm biased against time travel stories. Even when they're internally consistent they're still stories that rely heavily on deus ex machina scenarios that don't make a lick of sense. I give a ton of credit to guys like Cameron and Singer and Gilliam (12 Monkeys)for making it all work somehow. Directorial Talent and vision (and scripting and art direction and acting...) Go a long way I guess. Sigh
Does it matter? The movie is pretty much spoiled as it is,[BLACKOUT] with the characters having their costumes and Storm being with them, which means that's the end of the movie[/BLACKOUT]
The only thing that we haven't been spoiled about is what Wolverine's role will be in the movie.
Watch Wolverine lead the trailer
Fox simply isn't capable of an X-Men movie without Wolverine
Worst part is, he is probably just a cameo in the movie, people will be cheated into thinking he is a main character
Is Crossbones at the end of this movie? Do the characters eventually get together to take him out?
I remember reading a while back about a finale where everyone is fighting each other, but then bystanders are in danger because of the destruction. Then Spidey goes off to save those people and forgets about the fight.
I wonder if something along those lines takes place.
