Captain America pays Nick fury $10 in response to the bet he made with him in the gym about not likely going to be amazed by anything else he was shown.

As I remember she said "bozhe moi"(Боже мой) which would be "My God" or better put "Oh My god!" and obviously it is Russian. To hear it pronounced Google translate

The Avengers was given a somewhat different name because of the british tv show The Avengers. The new name was to help keep them seperate and to avoid any confusion for audiences in the UK. Wikipedia says: In February 2012, Disney announced that the film's title would be changed in the United Kingdom to avoid confusion with the British TV series of ...

My theory is this: Banner can already control The Hulk at the beginning of Avengers This is shown when he is about to show his 'secret' to Black Widow the first time. They are then interrupted (I forget by what already) before he can show her (presumably, his instant transformation). It is then shown (in a very epic fashion) that he can turn into The ...

When Loki tries to take control of Stark he actually hits the ARC reactor and not the flesh over his heart. Your graphic explains it best with the "Tink, Tink" sound showing that Loki is actually hitting the metal of the reactor. In the Avengers director commentary, Joss Whedon states it fails to work because the ARC reactor prevents the staff from ...

Although I have nothing to back this up, I am a writer and one of my characters parallels the Hulk fairly closely. In my mind, there's little doubt why he did it. He loves to hit things, he just got through having an aggressive fight, Thor is still upright, and he knows that Thor won't be hurt by it. It's like punching your teammate on the shoulder pads ...

I believe there was a phrase something along the lines of "They believe us to be immortal" which implied to me that this was incorrect and Loki knew that the fall would indeed kill him (and Thor).

Since your question asks What is the first crossover movie? I'll submit two of the earliest I have found, depending on your definition of "crossover". For movie horror/sci-fi franchises, there is Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943). But I think the earliest could be Laurel and Hardy's appearance in the Our Gang comedy short Wild Poses (1933). Both Our ...

How Bruce Banner found the Avengers: When Banner was aboard the Hellicarrier, his gamma ray search algorithm had worked out where the Tesseract was (Stark Tower), but before he could tell anyone Loki's machinations kicked in and he turned into the Hulk. After he went back to being Bruce Banner, he just found his way to Stark Tower, where the rest of the ...

The 2 heroes you are referring to are Black Widow and Hawkeye, played by Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner. There is talk about their own movies but no official releases. Marvel is focusing on the Avengers storyline first. It will probably depend on the box offices ... Black Widow You should have seen her in Iron Man 2 (part of the S.H.I.E.L.D. ...

The Chitauri did not stop working when the portal closed as the portal did not close until after the ship had been destroyed. What I took from this meant they were a linked consciousness where once the main body dies the rest of the creatures linked to it would also die (see the buggers from Ender's Game). Marvel has also covered this in their wiki page in ...

I would think Alien vs. Predator would be an example of combining franchises, which was released in 2004. While not a critical success (garnered only 22% Tomatometer), it did gross $80.2 million. It even spawned a sequel, Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem in 2007.

The Eric Bana version of the Hulk was critically panned, receiving poor reviews from critics and fans alike, thus, Marvel called for a reboot to be tied into their Avengers plan. From what I understood, Edward Norton quit after the 2008 version due to a lot of internal disputes (more information can be found on this answer to a similar question I asked ...

I don't know if there is a reason for that specific choice, but on the commentary Joss said they added the joke "after the fact" because the computer operator just looked "shifty" and Joss wanted to know what he was up to. So they added that bit. It wasn't scripted, it was decided on the day. This might not really answer the question, but seeing as it was ...

Computer artists start by developing a hand drawing of a character, and places like ILM will sometimes create small clay figures as references. These are then passed to the modeling artists who convert the concept into a digital character with high level of detail. This is often done with special digital clay sculpting software. Here are some examples I ...

French gentleman thief Arsène Lupin battles the English detective Sherlock Holmes in the 1910 German drama film serial Arsène Lupin contra Sherlock Holmes. Wikipedia says: A contemporary of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Maurice Leblanc (1864–1941) was the creator of the character of gentleman thief Arsène Lupin who, in Francophone countries, has enjoyed a ...

I thought it was closer to "Боже мой" - an interjection "Oh goodness", "Oh my", or "My God" - but its the same sort of thing. "бог"(bog) would be Russian for God, but I think she definitely says "Боже мой" (bozhe moi). Though essentially they mean the same thing.

I was under the impression that Coulsen was a LMD (Life Model Decoy). This is a plot device that has been used before in the comics (Nick Fury often turns out to be a LMD whenever he is defeated) and is even mentioned in Iron Man III: "You have reached the life model decoy of Tony Stark, please leave a message..." This would explain his ongoing memory ...

I believe he would survive,it could have been just reaction lead by fear and panic. Thor can "fly" but inside a steel cage it is of no use to him so getting out is smart idea no matter how immortal he is. Falling and getting hit by a steel roof also can't feel too good...and it could ruin his magnificent hair. There is always fear of death,and especially ...

Heimdall, (guardian of the Bifrost aka rainbow bridge) can see all, thus he tracked down Loki's exact Location and directed Thor to Loki. Odin used dark energy to transport Thor to earth since the rainbow bridge is destroyed. If you watch the scene closely when Thor and Loki are arguing a top a mountain after Thor takes Loki from the plane. You can clearly ...

Film corporation collaborations are not as uncommon as one might believe. This is especially true when dealing with music or music artists signed to one label that is under the umbrella of another corporation. Granted in those cases the film corporation really tries to pull music and artists from under it's own parent company labels but such is not ALWAYS ...

Hawkeye, like Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow, is a human, except he is a lot more skilled than most. He doesn't have super powers like Captain America, Thor, or Hulk, but he is a master assassin. He does make a cameo in Thor uncredited as Clint Barton, which I think you can say is a precursor before his role in Avengers, though he didn't have as ...

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said in November 2012: Iron Man 3 doesn't feature any of the other Avengers, or Nick Fury showing up, or any of those world-blending conceits that the Phase One films had. You have to keep in mind that Iron Man 3 had been in the works for almost a year, year and a half before The Avengers was released. We're ...

It is never said explicitly how exactly he survived, but in The Avengers it is hinted that he was saved by the Chitauri and their leader. A mysterious character by the name "The Other" tells Loki: The Other: You question us? You question HIM? He, who put the scepter in your hand, who gave you ancient knowledge and new purpose when you were cast out, ...

The reason is that the Hulk Comics/Cartoons/Movies are all made in focusing children, so they don't want to show Green porn. Anyways below are lee's funny answer on the same topic - Q: If it weren’t for the Comics Code, would the Hulk’s pants have ripped off like his shirt? Stan Lee: I guess it probably would have. So occasionally the Code did ...

If you are talking about Samuel L Jackson or S.H.I.E.L.D. then it would be: Iron Man Incredible Hulk Iron Man 2 Thor (Samuel L Jackson does not appear, but S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives do) Captain America:The First Avenger This should be it I think, its pretty much all the recent films released by marvel.

I believe you are talking about the fight between Thor and Iron Man. Loki didn't escape because he wanted to be caught and taken to the air ship.. That was part of his plan.
