Hot on the heels of the reveal of Lord of the Rings Lego sets, Lego has followed up with a star-spangled doozy. The Avengers are here and they’re up for a fight!! We know there’s gonna be some extra sets coming out when the movie makes it to our screens in the cinema.

‘Nuff chat. Here’s the rest of the first batch for you to take a look. At the bottom of the page remind yourself of your age and then remind yourself that that means you can afford it.






Although here’s a mod done by some guy on the internet. Some people’s near futile creativity know’s no bounds. Pointless creativity High Five!!

Avengers Superbowl Trailer

The Superbowl has long been the forum for débuting  new adverts and movie trailers and this year was no exception. With the Avengers film just a few months away, Marvel hit the screens with a brand new trailer offering more plot hints, more footage and much more Hulk.

It’s looking more and more like the the film will draw extensively upon Mark Millar & Bryan Hitch’s run on The Ultimates, but that’s not exactly a bad thing.

Alright, you can stop checking the internet every day, the Official Trailer for Avengers is finally here. For all their faults there are still no other movies that make me cheer during trailers in the way that Marvel movies do. What can we infer from the trailer? Loki is a badass, Thor has a new outfit and Robert Downey Jr should be in every film.

Avengers is released in 2012.

Robert Downey Jr Hits Scarlett Johansson on Avengers Set

I don’t normally post news stories like this, but this is too much of a giggle not to bring up. According to sources on the Avengers set Robert Downey Jr accidentally punched Scarlett Johansson in the face last week because he “pressed the wrong button” on his Iron Man suit.

Downey Jr was waiting to film a scene for the movie and decided to have a fiddle with some of the buttons on his suit, it turns out that his wandering fingers landed on the switch that controls his arm, causing it to swing round and catch his co-star in the face, knocking her off the stage. Fortunately Johansson was not badly hurt and was apparently able to laugh off the incident.

According to the source Downey Jr was apparently somewhat sheepish about the incident: “Robert, who couldn”t help because he literally can”t move in that iron suit, was beside himself – he kept apologizing and saying, Oh, my God, I”m so sorry!”

Avengers is out next year.

Avengers goes Pre Production Design!!

Over at Marvel.com, The Avengers movie has gone to pre production / PR stunt levels with the full team being given an amazing full digital paint job. Featuring all of the Avengers (Black Widow, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye, Maria Hill and Nick Fury). In it we’re getting some hints – including a familiar looking cloud based battle cruiser in the background. All things are looking good at this stage as fun is visibly being had and Marvel isn’t taking itself too seriously on this project. That should be its saving grace as the entertaining side of both Thor and Iron Man were what won them the fans. If Captain America lives up to the hype Marvel Entertainment’ll only have one more hurdle to get over. This beast. Now feast your eyes ’til they burp.
