Avengers Be Assembling

I’m trying not to get too excited about this, but the pics from ComicCon have given me a raging nerd-on:

The cast looks great.  I know what I  said about Ed Norton, but Joss assures me that Ruffalo is the man, so now he’s the man.

Well, the original Avengers included Giant Man and Wasp.

I’d say it is  pretty obvious that we are going more Ultimates style, but don’t expect them to follow the comic book too closely as Marvel has already produced two animated versions of the Ultimates.

No worries, though.  If anyone knows how to assemble a team it’s Joss (Buffy, Angel, Firefly and even Toy Story).

So do we need Giant Man and Wasp?  Not really.  We have previous movies to fall back on for Iron Man, Hulk, Thor and Captain America, not to mention the agents of Shield.  Bringing in too many new characters it just going to muddy the waters.

So we will have Hawkeye (big yay).  If they follow his origin story pretty closely it provides a great chance for the team to gel.  Then we have whatever the big bad is.  I hope it is not aliens, but we’ve seen Joss on both sides of that fence (Firefly, a space show with no Aliens, and Alien Resurrection).  I think we’re good for new characters.

I will be following this one pretty closely, but I’ll try to keep the posts limited to “important stuff”.
