A little googling seems to say that was the end credits tease after "Battleship". Since, you know, it was destined to be a monster hit with many sequels.

Well, something crashes into a small European farm. It's a larger multi-faceted capsule. The farmer and his family try breaking it open with rocks, tools, and finally a blow torch. Nothing works. Then one of the facets explodes off and a giant grey hand lunges out grasping the side of the opening. Then screen goes black. The camera angle never reveals what's inside.

Again, I'm not sure what I saw. Perhaps it was a trailer to another movie, but the rest of the trailers came sometime later and there was no title to it either. The timing of it was much closer to the ending of the Avengers than anything else.

I saw it last night and absolutely loved it. I haven't read this entire thread so forgive me if I have covered old ground......

But the only bit I was disappointed with was the Apple Seed rip off when Tony Stark fell from his tower. I was in the process of ripping this scene off myself in an animation, but now people will accuse me of stealing from the wrong film.

**** may contain tiny spoilers *****

I have not loved a film so much in AGES! The kid inside me has been awakened and is more alive than ever before. Some scenes almost brought tears to my eyes, especially when the Hulk destroyed that huge monster and then all the heroes stood together in the street.

There were seme things, like a few costumes, that could easily have come across as cheesy as the Dolph Lundgren He-Man movie, but they really made it work. I applaud them.

Strangely, Captain America was by far my favorite character in the movie, even though I didn't think much of his own movie. He was like the only true hero in there it seemed. There is too much I could go on about for pages and pages. See it! You likely won't regret it.

Indeed, Whedon has really pushed the characters inside those costumes compared to their own single movies, and while I found Cap pretty boring in Captain America: The First Avenger, I liked him quite well in The Avengers.

Heheh I think Stark's best line had to be, "That man was playing Galaga! He thought nobody noticed, but we did."

As for the Hulk VFX, I think this is hands down the best Hulk yet, and I really like the 2nd Hulk movie. I think I asked in another thread, before I saw the film, if he was made to look like the actor, and now I see he really was. I could believe it was the same guy. Sounds like the actor did his voice too.

Just like the majority of effects in this, really felt seamless. I know they did a lot of the same thing in TF3 and others, but it really felt nice and tightly integrated here IMO, never gave it a second thought.


WOW! I Would have never guessed that in a million years! I thought it was all really shot there. It all just looked real.

Weird Secrets of The Avengers

"With The Avengers coming to DVD and Blu-ray on Sept. 25, we sat down with three of the movie's VFX creators at Industrial Light and Magic, and learned some totally insane secrets of the film..."

http://io9.com/5940888/weird-secret...er-have-guessed



Of course, some of these "secrets" won't really surprise those here who work in the business.

Have read some extensive stuff on it but the digidouble stuff was a surprise! Especially for that shot in the trailer of Widow running towards camera. That's got to be up there with the full face Obiwan from Ep2 as a surprise. Same for cg Bruce.

I think it is really head and shoulders above anything else like it for the year.

The Hulk in Avengers was awesome, though I think that was down less to them capturing "every scar and mole and armpits" as they say, but more in the excellent animation and skin movement they provided. I also like in the article how they mention they made the Hulk not totally ripped, so he would have "some place to go" when he flexed. I think that really sold him as a living being as well. I agree with them, that the last Hulk was way too ripped and just seemed pretty plastic because he couldn't flex much, he was ALWAYS flexing.

I think it was a combination of all those things, attention to detail and actually thinking about things like the ability to flex, etc. in the design and animation that really sold it. And things like giving him body hair and sweat and pores and other subtle things not only connected it to Ruffalo better but just made him feel like his own real character. They got every single thing right.

Ang Lee's Hulk had some amazing work done on muscles and physicality but the rest of the design and of course skin color completely wrecked it. The "extra taut" look on Ed Norton's Hulk was definitely the main problem with that one, though..really made it cartoonish.
