A good friend pointed out that the second-favorite character who is thought to be dead may not be dead.

It would be possible that he isn't dead, given the way Fury lies and given the way comic books storylines twist.
I could've sworn I saw him walking on the HelliCarrier towards the end.

And, those cards were from the locker, not on him.

Urgh.  That just makes it that much more stupid.   Killing him to unite the team was already a really dodgy premise given that the only characters he has any established rapport with are Stark and Fury. The whole thing just came off as a forced Whedon trope.

Okay, I'll stop obsessing over it now.   TongueOut  I honestly did enjoy this movie for the most part.

Well, not sure if it should go here or not, but Iron Man 3 is in production. Filming started.

Mandarin is involved, as is the organization A.I.M.

Wondering if establishing A.I.M. is to setup the character M.O.D.O.K, who was involved with Captain America, Hulk, and Iron Man.

Considering Avengers success, there's sequels galore for every character.

And for the other Marvel characters.

Rumour has it, that Black Panther is to star in his own stand-alone film. Sometime in 2014
or more likely 2015.

Heard about Black Panther this morning on the radio.

The dj's, however, hadn't heard of the character.

I had to be out of the house for a few hours yesterday, and I found myself at our classiest local multiplex, watching The Battle of the Visual Effects Houses

Really!? Where is that playing, and what visual FX houses are battling?  I might be interested if it's ILM vs. Apogee.  A Viper/X-wing dogfight would be rather cool....

You have asked, and they have responded.

There are already plans for another stand-alone film for Captain America in 2 to 3 years.

While the film is not suppose to be out till 2014 or 2015, it is already creating controversy.
(1) The quality of the script.
(2) The person chosen to direct it.
(3) That unlike the first film, it takes place not in the past, but in the present.

I can see why the first two reasons might create controversy, but the third? It is not like, with "The Avengers" that we have not seen Captain American in the present.

Not having seen the first Cap film, when does it take place?

It is the brother duo Joe and Anthony Russo. What may be controversial about the choice is that most of their directing gigs have been for TV shows and TV movies. They have--apparently--directed only two theatrical films: "Welcome to Collinwood" and "Pieces." And the last theatrical film they directed was a decade ago.

Frankly, I haven't seen the first Captain American film neither, but I believe it was set during WWII.

Yes, the first Captain America movie is a WW2 period piece, but it does end with Cap being frozen in arctic ice and then awakening in the present.

From what I've been able to gather, The Avengers grossed almost $1.5 Billion, coming in at this number:
$1,452,230,000

Question: Is there a chance that The Dark Knight Rises will equal this?

The Dark Knight grossed a billion or so in '08.  Granted, there was the hype about The Joker as well as Heath Ledger's death.  Will a 4 year wait in between movies hurt it?

I'm waiting patiently for it as a Bat-fan, but I don't hear as much 'hype' like the last one.

That is an interesting question.

I do know that "The Avengers" is already the third highest grossing film of all time. Behind only "Avatar" and "Titanic." Whether "The Dark Knight Rises" will reach those rarified heights is anybody's guess. Though, I do know people were already crunching the boxoffice numbers before either film was released to the general public, and while "The Dark Knight Rises" was expected to do well, it was not expected to do as well as "The Avengers." And I have seen nothing since, that changes my mind.

If anything hurts "The Dark Knight Rises," I don't think it will be the timelag between the films, but the films' villains. The Joker being a more popular villain in the last film than Bane in this film. Though, I do give props to the filmmakers for trying someone new as the villain. But, we will see what we will see.

I am a huge fan of Bane.

However, he's a less popular villain than say Riddler, Joker or Penguin.
