UPDATE: Baby Avengers

Update: New video feature on Avengers Reborn.

When Marvel announced plans for a line of DVDs for a more mature crowd featuing PG-13 action, people got excited. Ultimate Avengers 1 and 2 were both reasonably entertaining, and Iron Man was also fairly ok. Next up is Doctor Strange which actually looks pretty fantastic. After that, Marvel decided to take a moronic turn for the worse with Avengers Reborn. Behold, aren't they cute:



Now how is this for the older mature crowd? What a waste. I dont care if they make this movie, but its ridiculous to put this in the same line of "hardcore" titles. Its only a matter of time until we get Baby Doc Ock.

Thats another knock against this movie. Maybe its Thorina or something.

Thorette? And does Wasp have time travel ability? Because it looks like she went back to 1990 to get a haircut from Arsenio Hall's barber.

I don't get these "cutesy" younger versions of existing heroes, etc. When I was a kid, I wanted to read or see the actual Captain America or Superman, etc. Not some "teenage" version. This would be like remaking Esacpe from New York, but recastign ti with all teenagers (Snake to be played by Freddie Prinze Jr.) and instead of trying to escape NYC, he'd be trying to escape some really big juvenile detention hall. Stupid. Unnecessary. Insulting.
I guess that's enough bad karma for one post...
