YTYKAvengers

This week, we're talking about the Avengers, a team that you might've heard of thanks to a movie that made literally all the money in the entire world a few years ago.

This week, we dust off a few obscurities to show you other heroes who had those famous identities, from the good (Bucky Barnes as Captain America) to the best-left-forgotten. That's right -- it's TEEN TONY, Y'ALL!

James Gunn Says You Shouldn’t Expect the Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers to Crossover (In Movies, Obvs)

Avengers Guardians of the Galaxy crossover
Marvel

Everyone has assumed that, at some point towards the end of this current Marvel Cinematic Universe, the paths of the Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers would cross. Yes, one superhero team is busy protecting Earth, and the other occupied in outer space, it makes too much sense to not have them meet up in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ right? Never mind the “it makes sense” part, we just really want this to happen. Well, we might never happen according to ‘Guardians’ director James Gunn who warns fans about making such assumptions.

Oh Captain My Captain: How Carol Danvers Became Marvel’s Biggest Female Hero

captainmarvel1

Fans of Captain Marvel probably won't tire of being reminded that their hero is getting her own movie, scheduled for a July 6th 2018 release. There's no director, no writer, and no star attached, but the movie has a title and a date, and that alone is progress. Superhero fans have been waiting a long time for a Marvel Studios movie with a female lead.

The Captain Marvel movie is due to come out thirteen months after a planned 2017 Wonder Woman movie from Warner Bros, and those two pictures could help usher in a new age for female heroes, if the studios follow through.

The Wonder Woman movie was a long time coming, but she's an obvious choice for Warner Bros; she's the definitive female hero, a brand, and an icon, with more than seventy years of history. By contrast, Captain Marvel has been around in her current incarnation for two years. But there are good reasons why she's Marvel's pick for a leading lady.

Untitled-1

DID YOU GUYS SEE THAT TRAILER? We did. We saw it more than you. We saw it until our eyes blinked. We saw the heck out of that trailer. We love comic book super movies better than anyone! Who are you dressing as for Halloween? Ultron? LOSER. We're dressing up as a destroyed city or a screaming civilian running through the street, because we GET IT and you DON'T.

But you're cool too I guess, so we're going to tell you a few secrets about the Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser trailer. We paused every frame of that trailer (or there were gifs on Tumblr maybe) and now we know every hidden Easter egg, every clever surprise, every cameo that Marvel doesn't want you to see! (Unless they're hoping you'll go see the movie, in which case maybe this is all just marketing and we're playing their game? Holy cheese, I think I just stepped through the looking glass here. Look away you guys! IT'S A TRAP!)

‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron Trailer’ Offers Shirtless Wet Thor, Pinocchio, Spader, Usual Civic Chaos

Untitled-1

The first trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron was supposed to air on ABC on Tuesday during Agents of SHIELD, no doubt to give that show's flagging ratings a boost in its altogether better second year. But even the best laid plans of the rigorous pleasure-engineers at Disney/Marvel can't compete with all the weaknesses of humanity, with its strange impetuous need to leak trivialities into the ether like they were Watergate tapes. Which is why Mickey Mouse is going to replace us all with obedient machines programmed only to smile.

‘Secret Wars’ Too: Marvel Unveils Its Big Event For 2015, From Hickman And Ribic [NYCC]

marvel-secretwars-hed

Jonathan Hickman has been building up to something big for the Marvel Universe for the entirety of his run on Avengers and New Avengers. His 'incursions' -- alternate realities colliding and wiping each other out -- were the driving force behind Infinity and the splinter that divided the Avengers in Original Sin; they now form the backdrop to his books as they skip to a new status quo under the 'Time Runs Out' banner. There was always a plan.

Now we know the culmination of that plan. As announced at a Times Square event for New York Comic-Con on Thursday evening, Hickman's Avengers runs will end in May 2015, and he'll be joined by artist Esad Ribic on a year-long epic event book called... Secret Wars.

No, for real. Secret Wars. Maybe they don't know that the name's been used before? No-one tell them. They've been working on this for ages; they'll be so disappointed.
