'The Bourne Legacy' star Jeremy Renner stopped by 'Saturday Night Live' last night to play the admittedly foreign role of comedy host. During one of the sketches, the crew decided to poke fun at another blockbuster Renner starred in this year: 'The Avengers.' Reprising his role of Hawkeye, Renner happily played into the joke that his character was arguably less useful than the others, given his lack of 'super' status.
As the world knows already, character actor Frank Grillo was recently cast as the villainous Crossbones in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.' These days, when you're lucky enough to find yourself in a Marvel movie, it seems as though you're gearing up not just for one flick, but for two or three. (Unless you're Hugo Weaving.) So does that indicate that Grillo's Crossbones will be making an appearance in a certain mega-gigantic-super-sequel that is scheduled for a May 1, 2015 release?
While 'South Park's unfortunate fall air dates mean that the long-running Comedy Central series arrives too late to effectively parody 'The Avengers,' at the very least upcoming episode "A Nightmare on Facetime" will pay the Marvel blockbuster homage. The boys look to dress as the iconic superhero tam for Halloween, only to find that Stan can't join them as Captain America, and instead has to send an iPad! So what Halloween hijinks does the latest clip from Wednesday's "A Nightmare On Facetime" scare up?
One of the breakout stars of 'The Avengers' was Mark Ruffalo and his turn as the Hulk. He was the third actor to take on the role, but between the actor and Joss Whedon's writing and directing, the character finally clicked. After the release, many people mentioned wanting a new Hulk movie, but if that comes to pass it's going to be a long wait.
Don't get me wrong, movies and comics like "The Avengers" "X-Men" and "Spiderman" are sweet, but they lack that raw, gritty feeling to them. That is until you see this video of the Marvel superheroes in a Ren & Stimpy style cartoon.
The crew over at Jest pulled a good one over on some Avengers' nerds while they were waiting in line to see the premiere of The Avengers. They quizzed some really devoted fans, already knowing their (Jest) answers were wrong. These folks got pretty upset over the wrong answers.
The Avengers might be a group of elite crime fighters and superheroes assembled to save the world from the onslaught of unforgiving evil, but even they have an human resources department to weed out undesirables.
With the buzz around Marvel's 'The Avengers' reaching a fever pitch and the first reviews starting to hit ahead of the film's May 4th release (all positive, from what we've seen so far), now might be a good time to reflect back on some of the many casting rumors to reflect on a very different 'Avengers' movie.
