Get ready for an avalanche of good news! A ton of new information has been coming out of camp Marvel pertaining to their upcoming slate of films, particularly Avengers and Ant-Man. First off we’ll get to the good stuff, a gallery full of set photos revealing Tony Stark, Thor and Cap as well as their new headquarters. We also have video footage of them rehearsing a scene. From what I can tell it looks as if Tony and the gang have set up some sort of tryouts for new recruits. With SHIELD out of the picture in an official capacity it stands to reason that the Avengers would step up to fill any security voids left in the wake of HYDRA’s resurgence.
*Update with Comic-Con photos and poster!
Take a look at the video and pics below:
Next we have a ton of new information detailing some character details on Ultron, Black Widow, Hulk and Iron-Man. Courtesy of Joblo (original stories can be found here and here) we have learned that Scarlett Johansson’s Widow will be getting a nice upgrade courtesy of Stark. Her new outfit will feature electricity powers adding an extra “sting” to all of her attacks. The previously mentioned stretchy pants will be appearing as a part of the Hulk’s new Avengers sanctioned outfit and Tony will be seen in 2 different suits this time around (the mark 43, which has the usual red and gold, and the mark 44, aka the Hulkbuster!). Here are a few excerpts from the article but make sure you take a look at Joblo.com for the full details.
– According to Kevin Feige, the new Avengers Tower is the largest ever for a Marvel film, featuring a large landing platform and garage for the new Quinjet within a large space that is full of windows, screens, and “techno stuff” but “really chic” with a lab directly in the middle where Stark and Banner work together.– The Quinjet redesign features more chairs to accommodate all Avengers, much like the X-Men’s Blackbird. The overall design is less military and more sleek with a bigger array of weaponry.– Black Widow’s costume update will feature not only the previously reported batons, but her suit is said to be more “TRON-style” in nature with blue lights and electricity around the suit. Her enemies will now receive electric shocks or a “widow’s sting” when she hits them, giving her more of a “superhero” edge amongst her super-powered counterparts.
