the avengers


The first Avengers: Age Of Ultron trailer leaked earlier today and was quickly pulled. Apparently, that prompted Marvel to say “f*ck it” and release the real deal. If you haven’t seen the high-res version head after the break post haste.

UPDATE: Marvel’s response to the leak earlier today was “priceless” as one of our Facebook commenters put it. You can see that after the break as well.

Calm down and don’t fret because The Wiivengers are here to save the day. YouTuber James Farr has created a version of The Avengers starring heroes from the Nintendo universe. Link is a great Captain America (I want to see that cosplayed!), Pikachu is Thor, Mario is Iron Man – you get the idea. They have to stop Loki from ruining everything, and the animation is cute and fun.

Watch the mash-up after the break.

If you come away from Guardians Of The Galaxy thinking that an Avengers crossover would be awesome, you should know that your dreams are likely to come true.

Speaking with Yahoo UK, director James Gunn and cast members from the movie revealed that the option is on the table and has been discussed. Gunn explains:

“We talked about all sorts of possibilities [for a crossover], and I kind of know what the basic plan is,” explained Gunn. “That could or could not include a couple of Avengers and a couple of Guardians meeting up, or all of the Avengers and all of the Guardians. But, we do inhabit the same universe and they’re pretty big personalities that are likely to, at some point or another, run into each other.”

So there you have it. If Guardians is successful (and you know that it will be) it seems like there is no way Marvel will pass on an Avengers crossover of some sort.

Check out the complete interview after the break…

lego helicarrier 1

The helicarrier from The Avengers is made to be built from LEGO bricks, and LEGO Ideas (formerly Cuusoo) user ysomt came up with a design that uses 22,694 of them. Isn’t it a thing of beauty? He reviewed stills from the film and did his best to make the helicarrier screen accurate and get the proportions just right. It measures 85.4 by 45.3 inches so you’d need to clear a big space to build and display it. If the project receives 10,000 votes, this beast of a helicarrier could become an actual product on store shelves.

Vote to make the LEGO helicarrier a reality at LEGO Ideas.

See more of the impressive build after the break.

Oh my glob! What if the characters from Adventure Time transformed into Marvel’s Avengers? Comic Book Resources featured the mash-up in their latest edition of “The Line it is Drawn,” and you know what? It was simply meant to be. You’ll find Jake as Thor, Jack hanging out with Thor, LSP as Captain Marvel, and more. I’d like to see all of these drawings animated!

superhero rockstars 1

It stands to reason that superheroes could be talented musicians. They have all kinds of extraordinary skills, and maybe their enhancements would make them better at playing instruments. Artist Andrés Moncayo imagines such a world and has drawn members of the Avengers and Justice League as rock stars. The combination of music and superheroes works exceptionally well.

Ever wondered what kid versions of the Avengers might look like? In Ben Oliver’s mind, they’re precious but also disturbing. The artist created this montage of the superheroes plus Nick Fury in caricature style, and it the art really captures their personalities. But, the grown up faces on toddler bodies really weirds me out. I can’t unsee this.

Shield Acura_Upload

This isn’t a re-creation, but one of the actual 2011 Acura MDXs used in The Avengers. It’s one of only ten made for the film and it’s being auctioned off on eBay to the highest bidder. The car is just like any other Acura MDX on the inside, complete with tech package and leather seats, but the outside is another story.

Cinema Vehicle Services gave it a new matte black paint job, bigger tires, a light bar on the roof and a push bar up front with LED headlights. Later, the studio added a few finishing touches like S.H.I.E.L.D logos and a serial number to make it screen ready. It has a Buy It Now price of $42,900, but you’ve got six days to put in a bid so you’ll be ready when Agent Coulson shows up in need of a little help managing the latest threat to planetary security.
