Now as you all known here at All Geek to Me one of favourite movies of the year was The Avengers, so I thought as a treat as we are coming to end of the year that I would bring you some Avengers trivia. I wont go on too much at this point as we have spoken about this movies loads this year, so straight to the trivia it is then.
The first Marvel film to be distributed by Walt Disney Pictures.
Before Mark Ruffalo was cast as The Hulk, Joaquin Phoenix was rumored for the part.
Lou Ferrigno voices the Hulk in this film. He has played the Hulk in almost every live-action version since 1978: he played the Hulk in The Incredible Hulk and its subsequent three TV specials, and he voiced the Hulk in the big-screen The Incredible Hulk (he was seen in Hulk but it was a cameo role as a security guard, which he repeated in The Incredible Hulk ). He also has voiced the Hulk in various animated productions.
Director Joss Whedon had earlier been considered to direct X-Men in the 1990s. A big fan of the X-Men, he even wrote a script, from which only two lines made it into the film.
The Science and Entertainment Exchange provided a science consultation for the film.
The cast became good friends while filming so if all the actors happened to be filming scenes together in the same place, they would go out together after.
The film was converted to 3D during post-production for the theatrical release.
Chris Evans once sent a text message to Clark Gregg simply saying “Assemble”, which is the tagline for the movie. Gregg stated that this was his favorite text message ever sent to him.
This is the second time that Bruce Banner/Hulk and Thor have appeared together in a movie. They previously appeared together in The Incredible Hulk Returns.
Tom Hiddleston revealed in an interview with the Guardian that the code name for the film early in its production was ‘Group Hug’.
Well that’s avenging trivia over with, what will I bring you next week in my birthday special. Come back and find out.
