OK, so all these directors are making all these movies that should be great on their own right? Well they all have to tie up all of these films so when “The Avengers” rolls around, they all seem to fit, coexist in the Marvel Universe or “The Avengers” will not work.
Now Joss Whedon is a great director, “Firefly” anyone? These films deal with very different characters, one at least from another realm of existence. He is a frakking GOD for Odin’s sake! How is he going to team these guys (Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and The Incredible Hulk) up and make it all seem plausible?
My guess is it will all hinge on “Thor”. Thor comes from Asgard, the realm of the Norse Gods, so this movie will deal with the fantastical, otherworldly bits of the Marvel puzzel. From rumors, the villians will be the Skrull, aliens that want to kill us and take our world. I have also heard that the Hulk will be the villian. I am hoping it is both. Hulk gets pissed, Iron Man, Captain A, and Thor team up to stop Hulk and they win him over to The Avengers. Then all hell breaks loose when the Skrull decide they want Earth. Team up ensues, “Avengers Assemble!” is yelled and we see an epic battle like never before.
Those are my hopes, but “Thor” is bumming me out. As a movie on it’s own, I think it will be OK, but as a cornerstone to the mighty Avengers, there is something bugging me and I dont know what it is. Well here is the newest Thor trailer directed by Kenneth Branagh, you tell me.
