D23 2011 : The Avengers Footage

Skipping ahead to the panel most people hit up this Disneypalooza for.. Steve Sievers of level27media.com gives us a rundown of the footage shown for next year's most anticipated movie...The AVENGERS!!

Producer / President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige comes out to talk about The AVENGERS( coming May 2012)! I was hoping he would also talk about other Marvel movies in the works but he didn't say anything. Right off the bat, he introduces a clip saying "I know why you guys are here!"

The clips starts out with Nick Fury looking at Loki, who is in a giant glass dome jail cell. Nick goes over to a control panel and says "You if you scratch my glass you will fall 30,000 feet to your death" We can safely assume they are on the Shield Helicarrier. This is confirmed when the bottom of the jail opens up and we can see clouds below. Loki says he is impressed with this jail, but it wasn't designed to hold someone like him. Nick goes into a rant about how Loki tried to take the cube and use its power for bad and "kill for fun." Loki goes into a rant about how humans don't know how to use the power of the cube to tap its full, ultimate power. Mean while Thor, Captain America, Bruce Banner, Iron Man, Hawkeye, & Black Widow are watching this on a security camera from a round table somewhere in the helicarrier. Bruce says "Wow, he really grows on you, doesn't he?" Nick starts to leave the jail area and says "Well let me know if ultimate power needs any magazines."

In the next scene, Iron Man is behind a bar making a drink (sort of looks like he is at his house) and says "Let’s do a roll call, shall we? We’ve got two assassins.." with a quick shot of Black Widow and Hawkeye behind a destroyed car, on a bridge, firing their weapons. "We got the God of Thunder and the living legend who even looks like a living legend.." with a shot of Thor swinging his hammer at Captain America, who blocks it with his shield (why are they fighting each other?!) "..And then me!" Shot of Iron Man flying over the NYC sky line. We then see that Tony is talking to Loki at the bar. Loki says "Well I have an army" (sadly we don't see a clip of his army). Tony takes a slip of his drink and says "Well, we have a Hulk" and flips over to a close up of Hulk's face with him Roaring!!!! End of clip.

Kevin Feige brings out the cast including Chirs Hemsworth (Thor), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Cobie Smulders (S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill) and Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) .. and the crowd goes nuts. Robert Downey Jr grabs the mic and says "Hey, I haven't seen that clip, lets show it again." They show the clip again and then the cast takes a bow and leaves. NO ONE ELSE SAID ANYTHING???!!! I was wondering if they were running late or something or maybe they just didn't want to give anything else away.

Seems odd Disney would go through the effort of bringing in most of the cast just to wave hello and go off to do private interviews with press, especially considering they had no panels at San Diego Comic Con. Jip! Seems like a missed opportunity to me.
