Walt Disney Studios and Marvel Studios recently provided us with production notes for their upcoming release, Marvel’s The Avengers. In addition to plenty of information on the actual production of the film, the document was filled with images, many of which we do not recall seeing before (apologies in advance for any not so new stills). Unfortunately the images themselves are a bit small, but the amount of eye candy produced is still pretty huge.

The stills pretty much cover all of The Avengers, highlighting Hulk and Tony Stark /  Iron Man but also give us some nice images of Loki as well as the hardware behind the crimefighting squad, namely the Quinjet and the Helicarrier, both inside as well as out.

Jackson) talking about how each of the heroes are ‘isolated’ and ‘unbalanced,’ but when combined, ‘can become something more.’ It then quickly cuts to the group assembling for the first time, much to the apparent dismay of billionaire philanthropist Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.).

‘Maleficent’ with Angelina Jolie to Debut in Theaters March 14, 2014

The Walt Disney Studios today announced that Maleficent, the live-action film starring Angelina Jolie in the title role, will debut in theaters nationwide on March 14, 2014. Although no official synopsis has been released yet, based on early drafts of the script by Linda Woolverton, Maleficent will chronicle the life of the title fairy from youth as she is tormented and becomes the sorceress made famous in Disney’s animated classic Sleeping Beauty. The film will also share the same timeline as Princess Aurora’s story, but will be told mostly through Maleficent’s point of view, offering up some insight into her actions that no one has been witness to before, perhaps taking a cue from the Wicked Witch of the West as seen in Gregory Maguire’s Wicked.
