The Avengers movie will need to start ramping up production soon if it hopes to pull in the fans of the Marvel film franchises.  The big question floating around is, “How good of a film will the Avengers be?”  Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor, got a peek at the film and thinks it is going to be huge.

“I saw a very early draft and, yeah, it’s incredible… Look, everything about the story in the comic books is huge. You have these huge, big superheroes and these huge, big egos kind of crammed into one small space. Reading the script, it was massive. Everything about it was like ‘oh my god.’ I said to Joss [Whedon], ‘I don’t know how you’re going to shoot this thing,’ but I’m excited to be on-board and let’s give it a go.”

So there you go. It will be massive. Huge. Crammed with egos. Probably the most important part about the quote is toward the end, when he wonders how the film will be shot. No doubt everything will come together at the end, but massive effects work tied to a massive story are going to require the skills of very talented people, and if the story turns out to be a Kree/Skrull war then the effects houses in H’wood are going to be very busy.

    Based on the toys I’ve seen previewed online, I’d say it’s more likely they’re fighting the Hulk (the Iron Man toy was a movie version of the Hulkbuster Armor). I’d say it’s likely a version of that first Ultimates story.
