A thorough (AND AMAZING) description of The Avengers footage from d23 expo is now available. While it doesn’t reveal much, it does provide the fans with new details surrounding Loki and Fury, Iron Man and Cap, Maria Hill and much more including a first look at the Hulk! Make the jump!
This year’s Disney D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center, hosted a panel for Marvel Studios’ upcoming movie The Avengers. With Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Evans, and Mark Ruffalo still filmingin Cleveland, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner and Tom Hiddleston did the honors and presented everyone in attendance with 4 minutes of amazing footage!
And here is the description of the footage straight from Entertainment Weekly:
While much of the plot remains under wraps (look for an EW cover story next month to reveal First Look photos and exclusive details of the story), D23 attendees got to see snippets of two tense scenes between Nick Fury and Loki, and Iron Man alter-ego Tony Stark and the god-gone-wild.
The first sequence featured an imprisoned (or is he still somehow in control?) Loki, locked in a cylindrical glass and steel cell on board the S.H.I.E.L.D. hellicarrier.
“You try to escape you so much as scratch that glass …” Fury says, throwing a switch that opens a gaping vortex into a gray rainstorm. “30,000 feet, straight down in a steel trap.”
Loki smiles. “It’s an impressive cage, but not built for me.”
“Built for something a lot stronger than you,” Fury snaps back.
We cut to Smulders’ Agent Maria Hill watching the exchange on a monitor. The cage is meant for Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) when he Hulks out and needs a time-out. Loki seems to know all about this, and smirks: “How desperate are you, to call on such lost creatures to defend you?”
“How desperate am I?” Fury growls. “You threaten my world with war. You steel a force you can’t control. You talk about peace, but you kill because its fun… ”
Loki is unaffected. “It burns you to be so close,” he says. “To have the tesseract (that cosmic cube from Odin’s court that was the source of all the fighting in Captain America). To have power. And for what? A warm light for all mankind to share.” Loki’s smile fades: “Allow me to remind you of what real power is.”
Fury waves him off and descends some steel steps, leaving Loki alone in the empty chamber. “Well, let me know if ‘Real Power’ wants a magazine or something.”
Loki glowers at a camera monitoring him, and the movie cuts to Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner. “He really grows on you doesn’t he?”
The second scene is a conversation between Tony Stark and Loki, apparently… in Stark’s private bar? In any case, Tony’s having a drink.
“Let’s do a head count,” Stark says, as the camera cuts to shots of Renner and Johansson as Hawkeye and Black Widow. “Two world class assassins …”
Cut to Thor: “A demigod …”
Cut to Captain America: “A living legend who actually lives up to the legend …”
Now we’re back with Loki and Stark: “And you, big fella!” Stark says. “You’ve managed to piss off every single one of them!”
“I have an army,” Loki snarls.
Stark gets right in the villainous god’s face. “We have a Hulk.”
Boom! Commence cheering!
“WE HAVE A HULK!”
