    CBR updated their D23 coverage with a good description of the exclusive clips: Exclusive “Avengers” Footage shown at D23

    They went with good guy/bad buy banter for the most part in these clips, but they sound great.

    Again, just with the first costumes, I wish the star on his chest was just a bit bigger. Especially with this costume, I think it would help to make his chest look more broader.

    The star probably could stand to be a little bigger, but other than that I'm absolutely loving the new costume. I'm really only seeing The Avengers for Captain America, so I can't wait to see him in action with the new suit and flinging that shield at some big alien baddies. :D

    Well, this is just so surreal. Ten years ago, I wouldve never imagined an actual Avengers film.

    My mom is dying to go see this because she has the hots for Thor. The weird thing is the actor's only five years older than me.

    When the non-Marvel Avengers film came out in 1998, my friends and I were glum because a movie based on the "real" Avengers seemed like a total impossibility.

    Sometimes I love being wrong.

    Just as I suspected, she will be replaced by Hank Pym and Jan.

    The art's looking good. Though I'm not sure why they added a bit of silver to Iron Man's armour.

    Cause I had been following the news on Ant Man since 2006/ 07. Before all this Avengers set-up MARVEL Studios was going to make that film to be directed by Edgar Wright. He already had his script which they liked and then came Iron Man, which catapulted into Avengers. The fact that they didn't scrap Wright and his script (which they could of), shows they and Joss were going to save him for a sequel. Though I was hoping he might show up in Avengers, but I don't think they want to step on Wright's toes and allow him to cast his Ant Man.

    But what's the connection between Black Widow going to a Russian Facility and she being replaced by Ant-Man and Wasp in the Avengers' sequel?
