SuperHeroHype have posted some more detailed information about the Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor footage that was shown at CinemaCon yesterday, but perhaps most interesting was what they revealed about Jeremy Renner's cameo as Hawkeye. It's also interesting to note that Marvel Studios are continuing to hint at Wakanda, perhaps making a solo Black Panther movie all the more likely! To read the full report, head on over to the site by clicking the link below.
Jeremy Renner DOES appear in Thor, not in costume as Hawkeye, but as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent with a bow and arrow working for Clark Gregg's Agent Coulsen.THOR NEWS:
Coulsen looks on and orders a special agent into a crane high above the scene where it's revealed to be Renner, and he pulls out his bow and arrow and takes aim waiting for Coulsen's orders.
It's not like he walks on screen and someone says, "Thor, meet Clint Barton aka Hawkeye," or anything.
After fighting his way through many men, Thor finally gets to the hammer in the ground and he tries to pull it out and fails, realizing that his father has indeed removed his power to wield it.
We get to see some of the camaraderie between Rogers and Stark, who plays a fairly major role in the creation of Captain America. Stark walks Rogers through his lab showing him prototypes for a shield he can use in battle - we even briefly see the cool '40s style shield Cap used to carry before it was replaced with the circular shield.
Rogers picks up a shiny metal round shield and Stark tells him that it's a prototype made out of vibranium, a rare metal that is impervious to anything, and when Peggy walks in, Cap asks her what she thinks and as in the trailer, she picks up a gun and shoots at him then comments, "It works."
Tom Hiddleston Talks Thor Once More But Compares Thor to Richard Donner's SupermanTom Hiddleston playing Loki in the new upcoming Marvel movie Thor was recently seen at the Jason Empire Awards were he found a little time to yet again give an opinion on the Thor movie.
He,like the rest of the cast,has seen the movie and while he seems to very much like it compares it to the great Superman movie of the 80's as stated here:
“Chris [Hemsworth] is like Christopher Reeve [in Richard Donner's 'Superman'] in that he can do two things: he can wear a big red cape without a shred of self-consciousness. But he’s also funny as hell, and he’s so sweet. So with all the fish-out-of-water stuff… he’s so funny. So he does almost two jobs in a way.” http://bcove.me/njhwsj74
Thor opens in the U.S. on May 6th, 2011. While it soars to theatres in the UK a week earlier on April 29th.
