Highlights from The Avengers Twitter chat, plus Super Bowl spot tease

Jan. 31, 2012by:

Today THE AVENGERS kicked off a Twitter chat event with director Joss Whedon and cast members Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hiddleston, and Clark Gregg, revealing very little about the film, sticking with the trend of keeping things tightly wrapped before its premiere.

It was mostly cheeky banter and sarcastic wit, but there were a few tidbits I was able to get involving some of the characters.

Below are the highlights:

When asked if THE AVENGERS movie is taking after the Ultimate line, regular Marvel Universe or a mash-up, Whedon said: It's a combo platter; classic, Ultimate, plus a little "Richie Rich" and Mastering the Art of French Cooking.

When asked about the rumor of a Spider-Man appearance, Whedon said: There is no Spider-Man cameo. But the Avengers do turn off the dark.

When asked if we are going to see Sam Jackson kick some ass, he said: Fo Sho!

In reply to who he thought was the best Avenger, Jackson said: Black Widow is my pick!

Tom Hiddleston revealed the most about his character when asked if we would see a more mischievous Loki: ENTIRELY. More mischievous. More evil. More hubristic. More delusional. More damaged. More badass.

He also explained more about Loki's agenda: He doesn't want revenge so much as identity. Belonging. Purpose. Self-Esteem. Through delusional dreams.

Lastly, when asked if we would see more of agent Coulson in action, Clark Gregg said: Oh hell yes.

And that's about it. Nothing too new, but I'm sure you'd like to see a sneak preview...of the sneak preview for the Super Bowl, am I right? More Hulk and the addition of flying spacecraft! Check it out and strikeback below!

I think a Spider-man cameo would've been cool, even though studios would never allow it.

I always imagined a scene where SHIELD was recruiting heroes and he walks in and Fury rejects him immediately

I just love that all of these guys are so energetic and optimistic about each other and the film. It really bodes well and I think it will reflect greatly in the film.

Only thing I don't like so far... why is Jeremy Renner getting absolutely NO attention or love? :(

Because maybe Hawkeye is not that popular or maybe it is the fact that he is not one of the big FOUR (i.e. Iron [link]. Maybe they are saving him as more of a surprise or it could be the fact that Renner is off filming for his other movies? Like the Bourne Legacy?

But I agree with you, I would like to see some more love for Hawkeye.

I was certain it was Skrulls until I watched this. I'm still over 50% sure it's Skrulls but those look like ships from Thanos or Kang the Conqueror. I watched the cartoon, so i'm wondering if Marvel has some tie-ins. If you haven't seen it, Avengers Earths Mightiest Heroes is awesome.

That show is awesome. It's gotten me so pumped up that a live action entity like this could totally work. Is that thing getting a second season?

When they said it wasn't going to be the Skrulls I started thinking that the Atlanteans would make for cool "villains" but after seeing Loki on one of those flying scooters I have no clue what/who the other villains might be... But I'm ok with that, I'd rather not know and be surprised when I see it in a couple of months.
Only I know what/who these guys are will be spoiled by then. But hey, Marvel did a good job at keeping it a secret so far!

What the frak just happen? So fast! Next thing I know I already saw The Hulk screaming. I bet somehow The Red Skull is back.

I still wish Hulk was the villain. That would have been awesome to see Cap, Iron Man, Thor, etc. take on a rampaging Hulk! No big deal though, Loki and whoever else will still be cool.

Movie looks fantastic and am dieing to see more Hulk. I guarantee Tony Stark has the best lines in this film.

As for the villian, based off the teaser for the teaser I am going to say Loki and the Skrulls.

I thought they already confirmed the Skrulls weren't involved. That it was some other alien race from the comics.

Just because someone said it wasn't the Skrulls doesn't completely mean it isn't the Skrulls. Hell, Talia Al Ghul "isn't" in The Dark Knight Rises either.
