I'm really excited to hear the explanation behind the Avengers Academy. Unless.... unless this is them recruiting new SHIELD agents... I'm intrigued
HurricaneXavier - 6/14/2014, 4:23 PM
I hope this is Avengers Academy.
NovaCorpsFan - 6/14/2014, 4:25 PM
Seems like Avengers Academy to me.
MrMartinMarvel - 6/14/2014, 4:26 PM
So will these guys have super powers, or are The Avengers putting together their own private army of soldiers?
Pasto - 6/14/2014, 4:26 PM
Glorious film will be glorious.

20 bucks says those kids got themselves some abilities.
DEVLIN712 - 6/14/2014, 4:27 PM
If this is Avengers Academy, it raises the question, will we see any characters from the comics? Aside from X23 almost all of them are available to Marvel
MrSotoMan - 6/14/2014, 4:27 PM
Recruits????
AgentZero - 6/14/2014, 4:28 PM
That could be the Avengers Mansion

It's obvious that the Avengers Tower doesn't have a yard
HurricaneXavier - 6/14/2014, 4:30 PM
If this is Avengers Academy we will definitely see Gauntlet.
TheManFromMars - 6/14/2014, 4:31 PM
Seems like SHIELD 2.0 to me regardless of what they decide to call it in the movie.
MrSotoMan - 6/14/2014, 4:31 PM
Um why does everybody want this to be Avengers Academy?
MrMartinMarvel - 6/14/2014, 4:33 PM
I think if they're going to do Avengers Academy they should save it for the third one. I just don't think The Avengers are established enough to start getting so "professional".
MrSotoMan - 6/14/2014, 4:35 PM

Agree.
wookiefit76 - 6/14/2014, 4:36 PM
Def think these are scenes from the end of the movie.

Anyone else see 2 Thors?

This makes me think more that since female recruits have the blue, than that pic from the 1st article of the girl in black and red is SW.
MrSotoMan - 6/14/2014, 4:36 PM
It sounds a bit lame actually.

You know, maybe this could be the end of the movie not the beginning or middle.

I wouldn't mind if this is the ending of the movie where they begin an Avengers Academy program.
Omarvls - 6/14/2014, 4:36 PM
@MrSotoMan

I'm with you

Avengers Academy?
Retribution13 - 6/14/2014, 4:37 PM
Does Quicksilver start off as a recruit? Cause the costume and their uniforms look similar.
wookiefit76 - 6/14/2014, 4:37 PM


DarthMauve - 6/14/2014, 4:38 PM
Got to remember, if Stark is behind all this, he always goes big.

He'd do it all, straight away and with a lot of swagger.
MrSotoMan - 6/14/2014, 4:38 PM
Qiicksilver is in Avengers Academy (the comics Avengers Academy)
MrSotoMan - 6/14/2014, 4:38 PM
Quicksilver*
Ramiel - 6/14/2014, 4:39 PM
Are they doing a shot of Thor flying w/ the camera above him? I doubt it.
Omarvls - 6/14/2014, 4:41 PM
Thor looks BADASS

Top 3 Comicbook to film Costume

5. Spider Man (Raimi)
4. Nite Owl (Watchmen)
3. Superman (MOS)
2. Thor (Dark World)
1. Batman (Dawn of Justice)
PsychoticSpaceRaccoon - 6/14/2014, 4:41 PM
I will only support this "Avengers Baby Academy" if they all get slaughtered by Ultron and his forces midway through the film. We've barely had a film that featured the Avengers as a coherent group for longer than 20 minutes, I think adding this nonsense distracts from the core group. What is this, X-Men? Pssh.
Ramiel - 6/14/2014, 4:42 PM
@Omar

Spidey's costume in TASM2 is better than Raimi's costume.
MrSotoMan - 6/14/2014, 4:43 PM
I think I'm getting what is going on actually.

With what has happened in the MCU with Phase 2 and SHIELD (along with Agents of SHIELD), maybe this is Avengers answer to take down Hydra to create a program to take down Hydra full of super powered people.

Ultron factors in by using that program to probably change the mind of certain individuals (Quicksilver & Scarlet Witch) since the Avengers Academy was used for the sole purpose of finding villains, but that was revealed as a twist. It could be Ultron manipulates Quicksilver & Scarlet Witch.

.............or I could be wrong....just saying.......it looks plausible......

dethpillow - 6/14/2014, 4:44 PM
@wookiefit - yeah, 2 Thors, but that could really be between shots pretty likely.
MrSotoMan - 6/14/2014, 4:44 PM
This is actually.......starting to make a little sense.
DestroyallTrolls - 6/14/2014, 4:47 PM
Yeah, I DO NOT think it's potential Avengers recruits. I could be wrong, probably am, but I kindav think they are just people Stark is recruiting in some form or another. Some of them may end up as Avengers, but I don't think that's what the idea is. Maybe just another private security force?
We will see.
dethpillow - 6/14/2014, 4:48 PM
i'm actually gonna prefer to not think about this right now, cuz overall, Avengers Academy sounds pretty [frick]in lame to me.

and i know there's ways it could work in a story/movie whatever, so i don't wanna jump any guns. but just on the face of it. this just feels lame.

who knows tho?

@Soto - i think Ultron wouldn't be used well in that way. cuz you'd have them start off, i'm pretty sure, regardless of those recent rumors... start off with Strucker. and then kind of flip to Avengers. you wouldn't want to have another flip to bad guys and then leave off with them like that or worse yet have a third flip back to Avengers.

if it was just not dealing with them, then maybe i could see what you're saying maybe being possible to happen. but i think they're not gonna see anything like multiple flips going on with them.
DestroyallTrolls - 6/14/2014, 4:49 PM
2 Thors.
One is either a stunt double, or that's two heaps of sexy no mere mortal could withstand!
typicalfanboy - 6/14/2014, 4:49 PM
no! why are they doing this?!! there aren't avenger recruits!!! please stop changing things. i'm so mad. first hulk is dating black widow, and tony doesn't need the arc reactor??!! why give them helmets if they are just going to take them off in the movie? i hate fun it should be a direct translation from the comic
TheBaroness89 - 6/14/2014, 4:50 PM
Those are SHIELD or SWORD uniforms- maybe some other angles will show maybe a patch on the uniform
dethpillow - 6/14/2014, 4:52 PM
@Omarvls - yeah i agree with Ramiel... TASM2 Spidey has been the best comic book costume translation of Spider-Man yet.

and how could u not include Iron Man in that? he doesn't count or what?
just as far as translations, i think hands down... Iron Man is perfect, entirely 100% perfect from the comic books. it's a lot easier becuz of he's a robot looking suit, but still... i think it qualifies.
dethpillow - 6/14/2014, 4:53 PM
@Baroness - SWORD, i would dig that.. yeah. that would be cool.
wookiefit76 - 6/14/2014, 4:55 PM
That's what I thought on a stunt double or stand in.
NovaCorpsFan - 6/14/2014, 4:58 PM
I just gave these a thorough flick through and I think this might just be a security team for Avengers mansion. People being trained to take down supervillains should they attack. If B.J. Britt is there as reported, it makes sense, he doesn't have powers, but he's a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and has experience with that sort of stuff.
