A look at movies, especially films based on books (Yes that includes comics); Opinions, facts, movie charts, production news and, when possible a look at the movies VS their source material. I may also champion books I've read that really should be movies. I've also used it to display the unedited versions of my blogs for SyFy; (The sci-fi channel UK website.)Feel free to let me know about any stories that you think deserve the big screen treatment.

The Avengers: Portraits of the 6 Avengers including Bruce Banner as a male super-model???
Seriously, it looks like Mark Ruffalo is auditioning for a
role in Zoolander 2, not playing Bruce Banner, mild mannered super genius. I’m
going to go with some kind of fiendish, Loki mind control here. There’s more to
be found at EW’s article and of course for those of you willing to shell(head)
out for the magazine itself will
doubtless find many more Avengers goodies in the pages.
There are some interesting titbits from each actor and how
they see certain aspects. Scarlett Johansson’s fears that her guns seemed a little
insignificant next to Thor’s Hammer; Ruffalo’s reminding everyone that, aside
from both being scientific geniuses, Bruce Banner & Tony Stark also share a
penchant for testing out their inventions on themselves; Jeremy Renner’s
musings on his (I’m assuming Adamantium) Hulk-busting, tranquiliser, arrows;
and Chris Hemsworth on Thor’s continued conflict in having to both fight &
protect his ever more misguided brother, Loki.
If I can’t join The Avengers I'll be a catalogue model!
It would have been nice t have the 3 ‘normal’ S.H.I.E.L.D
agents eatured too (Samuel L Jackson’s Director Nick Fury; Cobie Smulders’
Agent Mria Hill; & Clark Gregg’s ubiquitous Agent Coulson) but it’s early
days yet and there’s plenty of time between now and the film’s release on the 4th
of May 2012. Then we shall see how one of the riskiest and most daring attempts
at blockbuster film-making yet seen goes down with the public.
