    Thats rather cool, actually. Was watching Movie 43 on Saturday, and when his segment came up, for some reason it struck me that he'd be great as an action hero- he has the right look and grounded attitude for it. And here we are 3 days later and there he is. Nice coincidence.

    Yeah I was impressed by him in Zero Dark Thirty. He has a likeable quality no matter who he plays, and he's believable in each role. I think that'll help Guardians since it's the most 'out there' of the movies to help it stay grounded with audiences.

    This is a thought I had, and I'm just throwing it out there, and I just want to ask everybody here who cares:

    Do you think Marvel is crazy or willing enough to have a Howard the Duck cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy, or any other future MCU film, especially the space-set ones? Even if it's just a "blink and you'll miss it" kind of thing? I mean, the character had a history in comics before that ill-fated 1986 film, it would just be a nod to the past, if nothing else.

    If there's room for some kind of cantina-like or Mos Eisley-like sequence, I could totally see many cameos being tucked away for recognizable non-primary characters (ie: characters unlikely to appear in their own film or have a significant role in someone else's, thus not having to worry about stepping on the design toes of an "official" movieverse version of the character that might come down the pipeline).

    Latest rumor is Jason Momoa is testing for Drax the Destroyer in GOTG.

    As a huge SG fan, let me say: oh, **** yes!

    He was surprisingly good in Bullet to the Head, considering what little he was given to work with. His Conan was a good take on the character as well (even though the movie itself was lacking). And, of course, his Dothraki character on GOT was solid as well.

    I think I've finished my Avengers Phase One score playlist- it comes in at just about a minute under 80 min so it'll fit on a CD. I'll put it in a spoiler block just so it's collapsible and not scrolling the thread unnecessarily:

    Show Spoiler
    "Intro":
    1: I'm Always Angry (a 1:31 excerpt edit from "Assemble"), The Avengers (I don't want to put it with the other Avengers tracks because of a high level of main theme use and I don't want it listening to it to be too repetitive, so I'm putting it here as a kick off thing, but I may remove just to preserve the progression of things)
    Iron Man:
    2: Mark I
    3: Vacation's Over
    4: Mark II
    5: Driving With the Top Down (Mark III)
    Iron Man 2:
    6: Monaco Drive
    7: Making God Bleed (a 1:56 excerpt edit from "Mayhem in Monaco", focuses on the Mark V theme kicking in)
    8: Rhodey Dons Suit
    9: Gun Show
    10: Sledgehammer
    11: Iron Man Battles the Drones
    12: I Am Iron Man (Mark VI)
    The Incredible Hulk:
    13: Main Title
    14: The Flower
    15: Bruce Goes Home (Lonely Man Theme)
    16: Harlem Brawl
    17: Hulk Smash
    18: Hulk and Betty
    Thor:
    19: Sons of Odin
    20: Banishment
    21: Forgive Me
    22: Can You See Jane?
    23: Thor Kills the Destroyer
    Captain America:
    24: Captain America Main Titles
    25: Training the Supersoldier
    26: "This is My Choice"
    27: Passage of Time
    28: Captain America
    The Avengers:
    29: We Get Ready (a 1:30 excerpt edit combining the SHIELD theme from Arrival and the Avengers fanfare from the end of Tunnel Chase)
    30: Helicarrier
    31: Performance Issues (Mark VII)
    32: A Promise
    33: The Avengers


    Thoughts? Anyone see any room for improvement?

    Recent Whedon comments on Avengers 2:

    “I can’t do any bigger, so I’m trying to do better.”

    "When a follow up asked what his philosophy would be in approaching the sequel... Joss said, "Death, Death and more Death!""

    I want to take the capitalization in the quote as though it's intended, but knowing Joss it's probably death with a lower case d...

    So the next Avengers movie will be mostly about Thanos's girlfriend? Is he going for a romantic comedy with Thanos trying to woo her?

    Not necessarily- the toys could just be including it.

    Latest rumors are supporting the concept art speculation that the Nova Corps will be in Guardians of the Galaxy (which would make sense given Feige's recent comments that GOTG will be 95% in space) and that we'll probably even see Nova himself.

    Probably a great way to backdoor in Nova if they ever wanted to do a spin off.

    Not to mention it kinda trips up DC even more. First we have Thanos playing out, ensuring it will be difficult, at best, to make the use of Darkseid in a Justice League movie not seem like a copycat of Thanos. Now we potentially have Marvel nailing their version of the Green Lantern Corps in the wake of DC's misfire with the GL movie.

    Then again, maybe it will actually help DC use GL if people go "Oh, like Nova?".

    I just heard the news of the Guardians of the Galaxy film set for release next year, of which I am very excited for. This has been one of my favorite comics ever since they rebooted after Annihilation.

    Maybe the'll drop a crap-ton of money beetween the two of them to do an Amalgam movie. 8-} Then we can be subjected to lunacy like Dr. Strangefate and Thanocide...

    Drax was one of my favourite parts of Annihilation so this annoys me immensely.

    He looks the part and has little to do other than scowling and spouting one-liners. It's not the best casting choice, but I can see it working.
