'The Avengers': 6 new behind-the-scenes pictures

After the colossal failure of ‘John Carter,’ Disney is still pushing its upcoming film, The Avengers’. This time, they have released six new images with some superhero action, but highlighting the work of director Joss Whedon.

The pictures describe the boss in action while talking with Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor). We also see him using the shield of Captain America, and other photos taken from his point of view as Iron Man getting ready for a scene, and Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) shooting a villain in the air inside a studio.

Whedon will also most likely show up at the ‘The Avengers’ closing night premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival this year on April 28. The film will have its world premiere on April 11 in Los Angeles.

The Avengers brings together some of the greatest heroes the world has to face a threat that could end life on earth as we know it. The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Clark Gregg, Tom Hiddleston, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders.

The film opens on May 4.

Samuel L. Jackson: Confirmed for 9 Marvel films

Samuel L. Jackson: Confirmed for 9 Marvel films

Samuel L. Jackson has signed a long-term deal with Marvel Entertainment to return as Nick Fury for ‘Iron Man 2’ and then potentially nine more films. Following recent statements by Jackson that negotiations between he and Marvel had come to naught, this is really good news.

It has been hard enough keeping track of ‘Iron Man 2’ casting without having to think of a new actor to play the head of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division). According to rumors, Mickey Rourke was in as a villain, and then out. Emily Blunt and Scarlett Johansson have been mentioned as Black Widow, while Don Cheadle did in fact replace Terrance Howard as Iron Man Tony Stark’s military friend Jim Rhodes.

Besides ‘Iron Man 2,’ set for a 2010 release, Jackson will play Fury in the Kenneth Branagh-directed ‘Thor’ (also 2010) and Captain America’ and ‘The Avengers’ (both 2010). There may also be a S.H.I.E.L.D. movie further down the road.

Those are four of the nine titles, but I’m not sure what other properties Marvel has in development that benefit from Jackson’s sense of gravitas. There’s ‘Ant-Man,’ which ‘Shaun of the Dead’ director Nick Wright is attached to, and ‘Runaways,’ which is currently being scripted by Brian K. Vaughn.
