Marvel also had a go at this with what can only be described as a preemptive Fandom Rejoice moment with the film's post-credits sequence - Nick Fury, the Ultimate Marvel version (based on Samuel L. Jackson), actually played bySamuel L. Jackson. Though, part of the agreement to use his likeness in the comics was that he'd have exclusive rights to play the character in films.
The briefcase suit. Seriously, the briefcase-Transformation Sequence has got to be one of the most salivating Technology Porn moments in the history of film. It was so awesome that when it was revealed in one of the trailers, bloggers the world over had a nerdgasm and used that screenshot for their posts. Let's give a hand to the SFX people for pulling off something that's been done for forty years in the comics but seemed impossible to do on film: actually make a suitcase armor realistic.
Gee, I wonder what the stinger will be for this one and if it can match Nick Fury.....wait, THE HAMMER!
So The Avengers was pretty great, huh? It's a shame we never found out who the master of that creepy guy who gave Loki his army was, but oh we-...oh, here he is! Wait, did he just mention "courting death"?! Oh my God, is that Thanos?! HELL YES!
Then it was learned that X-Men: Days of Future Past also has Quicksilver, so a deal was struck that Quicksilver can be in both as long as the films won't reference each other.
Iron Man 3 made fans fear that Robert Downey Jr. wouldn't appear in the Avengers sequel, but he signed another deal with Marvel Studios. That same article assures fans that they can also expect to see him in The Avengers 3!
The full title of The Avengers 2 excited fans by revealing a new villain.
The trailer that revealed him is just epic. First there were the voice-overs while a helmet was being made, and at first it looks like Iron Man's helmet. But then wait...it's being dented and melded into something. Camera pulls back to reveal Ultron's head, and well...just listen to the screaming fans.
James Spader will be voicing Ultron. No rumors. It's confirmed by the official website itself.
