CONSPIRACY THEORY 2: AVENGERS TWO?!?!?What you may not know, I'm a bit of a film/super hero buff/nerd. Not the over annoying kind that knows entirely too much, but the casual kind that enjoys a decent super hero movie. When the Avengers came out, you can imagine my delight when I actually went to see it. Not the best movie ever, but really exciting and a good 2 AND A HALF HOURS. Way too long, am I right?
So during my Statistics exam, I had an epiphany on the subject. Note, this topic contains spoilers about multiple movies, even ones that came out years ago. Now, allow me to take you back in time, to all the movies leading up to The Avengers.
First up is Iron Man. First movie in the Iron man trilogy. Well, it will be a trilogy in 2013. So, I stayed in the theater after the credits and was treated to this scene. Sorry about the quality. The guy on Youtube must of used his potato to film this.
OH MY GOD THEY ARE GONNA MAKE AN AVENGERS MOVIE! So I figured this would come out a year or so later, but in hindsight, that was stupid thinking. Why release movie when you can build up so much hype.
And that is what they did when they released The Incredible Hulk. Now, I haven't seen this movie, mainly because I heard it was awful. But I was happy to find out it too featured an Avenger teaser scene, this time right before the credits. Probably cause only losers wait for credits. Here is the scene. Now, I'm very very sorry, but this is the only video I can find. It is the same exact scene, just the guy did it with Legos. And no, Spiderman wasn't in the scene. If you are confused, Tony Stark (Iron Man) talks to some military guy about recruiting the Hulk.
So obviously, the Avengers is on their way. And to make the fact more obvious, Iron Man 2 hinted it at it all the time. After the credits were done rolling, we were again treated to a scene.
While not a teaser for The Avengers per say, it hinted at the Thor movie that would come out.
And a year or so later it did. And as usual, I stuck around for the scene. This scene was a bit of a double whammy. Also, video is fuzzy because it was in 3D. PUT ON 3D GLASSES NOW!
So that cube hinted and played a huge role at a Captain America movie. Also, you find out Loki is still alive, so that brings him in as The Avengers villain.
And finally, my favorite, Captain America. Same routine, I hang out a little while longer, ushers are telling me to get the hell out so they can sweep my popcorn, but I was adamant I was! Anyway, here it is. And yes, they decided to squeeze in a trailer after the credits, those bastards.
So there you go. They hide these scenes, builds up Avenger hype for 4 years and makes this movie. BUT The Avengers also has an after credits scene that hints at a sequel. Sadly, Youtube only has "parodies", which is actually stupid joke videos. Basically, the aliens claim the humans are stronger than they thought they were and recruit the next villain, Thanos. If you don't know who that is, I don't blame you as neither did I.
So what? What was the point of all of this? Well I'll explain it all in one smallish paragraph.
Originally, Spiderman was a member of The Avengers, but he didn't make the cut. However, there is going to be a new Spiderman movie coming up called The Amazing Spider Man. While it doesn't feature a red head Mary Jane (sad faice), it will a have a revamped Spider Man and a new actor. As I've already showed you, Marvel Studios have a history of putting teasers after the credits. So why simply make a sequel to The Avengers when you can hype it up by introducing fucking Spider Man. So, there you go. Spider Man to be in the next Avengers movie. You heard it here first kids.
