The Avengers Bluray for me was so good I am just now finally getting around to watching the directors commentary and had a total geek out moment.
I am not sure if this was already mentioned in another thread or category or is already common knowledge but I am still so giddy that I wanted to share the little Ultimates nugget from Joss Whedon (which I suspect will be lost on a lot of the mainstream viewers).
During the “Man Down” scene after Coulson’s apparent death, Cap is standing on a catwalk with Tony in his armor below. Whedon makes the following comment:
“…it looks like Bryan Hitch drew it. Nothing looks more like the Ultimates than that one shot”.
I fell off my couch
For me at least it is definitive confirmation, of what we already knew was, the Avengers cinematic universe is based on the Ultimates Universe.
Just f’n cool and I appreciate the nod from Joss.
Again, if I am late to the party and this is already common knowledge please let this thread melt into obscurity…i just had to geek-up all over the floor and figure no one here would mind the mess.
