Hello Everybody, to day i want to share some Movie mistakes and a Trivia related to "The Avengers" i hope you enjoy it and appreciate my effort
M O V I E M I S T A K E S
1- Factual error: In the scene in Stuttgart, we see a "reserved parking" sign written as "Reservierten Parken". In correct German it would be written "Reservierter Parkplatz".
2- Factual error: The Königsstraße in Stuttgart is located in the city's main shopping area, not its cultural center as the film would suggest.
3- Factual error: In Stuttgart, the German police cars use the wrong lights (they should be blue instead of orange-yellow) and license plate marking arrangements.
4- Factual error: The video game company NAMCO Bandai is misspelled twice as "NAMECO Bandai" in the end credits.
5- Audio problem: When one of the computer operators resumed playing Galaga, the sound effect heard is for an enemy ship attempting to capture the player's ship, but what's shown on screen is normal gameplay.
6- Continuity: In multiple shots where Iron Man is flying around the city, there are cuts on his forehead. However, when he is lying on the ground and Thor rips the face mask of his suit off, the cuts on his forehead have disappeared.
7- Continuity: After Iron Man takes out a worm "Jonah style", he crashes into a cab and stop about two feet away. He gets up, there is a quick shot of him on the inside of his suit, and when he gets up, the cab is nowhere to be seen.
8- Continuity: Throughout the film, Tony Stark's chest ring can be seen glowing through his shirt except for two occasions when it's suddenly off - after Loki escapes from the helicarrier, and when Loki and Tony Stark are talking in Stark tower.
9- Continuity: When Captain America is punching the heavy bags and Fury first walks in, the bag that Captain America is punching (not the one he already broke) changes from not having duct tape around the middle, to having it, and then back.
10- Continuity: Just after Dr. Banner asks Nick Fury how many spectrometers the Helicarrier has access to, he takes off his jacket, rolls it up, and puts it under his arm. In the next shot, the jacket is suddenly draped over his arm.
11- Audio problem: When Bruce Banner meets Natasha Romanoff for the first time in Calcutta, there's a shot from behind her where Natasha is heard talking but her reflection in the small mirror behind Bruce isn't.
12- Continuity: When Hill chases Barton the car has a hole in the passenger front glass, when she turns it's gone.
13- Continuity: When Thor says "I have unfinished business with Loki", you can see Hawkeye in the background removing the spent heads of his arrows, four of them, two a little lower then the rest. The shot cuts, and he is holding all four at the same height.
14- Continuity: When Iron Man and Thor are fighting, Thor grab Iron Man's wrist at one point. In the next shot, he is holding him by the forearm.
15- Continuity: When the computer model gets a hit on the tesseract, Banner and Romanoff move to the computer, with Banner standing on the left of agent Romanoff. When Hawkeye blows up the turbine, Banner and Romanoff have switched places.
16- Revealing: During the climactic battle towards the end of the film, when Hawkeye fires his arrow and rappels through a window, the camera pulls in close to him. Watch as he begins to roll over: He rolls over a piece of glass, which smushes up like jello under his elbow. It's obviously a piece of stage-glass.
17- Continuity: When Rogers, Banner and Stark are discussing about Stark Tower, the tools on the table move around.
18- Continuity: When the arrow explodes aboard the ship Captain America (already in his outfit with long sleeves and has auburn hair) tells Tony Stark (wearing a long sleeved shirt, black hair) to suit up. They both leave but one of them can be seen running seconds later with auburn hair and a short sleeved t-shirt.
19- Continuity: When Natasha Romanoff is telling Bruce Banner about the Tesseract, she sits down at the table, resting her arms on the table. The shot cuts, she is leaning back instantly.
20- Continuity: When Loki says "You don't have the Tesseract yet", The Other moves to him with his right hand raised. The shot cuts and it is now his left arm.
21- Factual error: Helicopters work by creating a low pressure zone above the rotors, by forcing the air down. In other words, sucking air away from the top side. Since the helicarrier is basically a giant helicopter, it's lifted by rotors, it should be sucking air in from the top. But judging by the way Banner's jacket blows, it's blowing air out.
T R I V I A
The first Marvel film to be distributed by Walt Disney Pictures.
Before Mark Ruffalo was cast as The Hulk, Joaquin Phoenix was rumored for the part.
Morena Baccarin, Jessica Lucas, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Cobie Smulders screen tested for the role of Agent Maria Hill. Smulders was eventually cast.
Lou Ferrigno voices the Hulk in this film. He has played the Hulk in almost every live-action version since 1978: he played the Hulk in The Incredible Hulk and its subsequent three TV specials, and he voiced the Hulk in the big-screen The Incredible Hulk (he was seen in Hulk but it was a cameo role as a security guard, which he repeated in The Incredible Hulk ). He also has voiced the Hulk in various animated productions.
Chris Hemsworth had to increase and expand his dietary/food intake in order to maintain the physique he built up for Thor.
Director Joss Whedon had earlier been considered to direct X-Men in the 1990s. A big fan of the X-Men, he even wrote a script, from which only two lines made it into the film.
According to Joss Whedon, the film is strongly influenced by the early 1960s Avengers comics, which he was a fan of while growing up: "In those comics these people shouldn't be in the same room let alone on the same team - and that is the definition of family."
Tom Hiddleston spoke of his role as Loki in an interview by saying, "I can tell you that it's all of them against me. I am the super villain. So it's Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow and Nick Fury forming a team because I've got so bad ass."
After Loki is brought on board the Helicarrier, Tony Stark can be seen wearing a Black Sabbath T-shirt. Black Sabbath is better known for their song "Iron Man." Although the song was not originally associated with the Marvel Comics character, it has since been referenced in the comics and the end of Iron Man when Tony quotes the lyric, "I am Iron Man."
Tony Stark describes his group as "Earth's mightiest heroes, that kind of thing." This refers to the bold label that has appeared on "The Avengers" comic books since its 1963 publication. The phrase has also been used as the subtitle for The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, the most recent animated series before the live-action Avengers film.
Tom Hiddleston revealed in an interview with the Guardian that the code name for the film early in its production was 'Group Hug'.
With Samuel L. Jackson's role as Nick Fury in this film, he is now the second actor after Hugh Jackman (who has appeared in all X-men movies) to play the same comic book superhero in five different movies.
Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury is from the Ultimate Marvel Universe created in 2000 to re-imagine and update the Marvel heroes for the 21st century. Fury's likeness was actually based on Jackson, who gave Marvel permission to do so. Subsequently, based on that likeness and his star power, Jackson was cast as Fury for all Marvel superhero films owned by Marvel/Disney. (Suck it David Hasselhoff)
Thor spends most of this movie in his Asgardian armor but with bare arms, a nod to his early appearances in the comics. During his time on the Helicarrier, he is also seen without his cape, an allusion to his Ultimate Comics appearance.
In the movie, Captain America is a founding member. In the comics, Captain America was unfrozen in Avengers #4 when he was accidentally discovered when the team was looking for Namor the Sub Mariner.
To prepare for the role of Agent Clint Barton (Hawkeye), Jeremy Renner was trained by Olympic archers.
The battle cry of the Avengers, "Avengers Assemble" was not spoken throughout the film. However Chris Evans would say it behind the scenes to call out the rest of cast via text message to hang out off the set.
The first film to gross $200 million in its first three days in the USA.
After Thor takes Loki off the Quinjet down on the mountain side, two large ravens fly by them as they are talking. In Norse mythology, their father, Odin, had two ravens, Huginn and Muninn, who would bring Odin information from Midgard (Earth).
Mark Ruffalo claims to be the only actor to date (2012) to play both The Hulk and Bruce Banner in the same movie. Technically, both Eric Bana and Edward Norton have done motion capture work for their respective Hulks, but Ruffalo is the first actor to perform the Hulk live on set via performance capture.
Amanda Peet was considered for the role of Agent Maria Hill.
Reputedly a scene was filmed where during the final battle Captain America saves an old man trying to protect his grandchildren. He tells him to 'Get them to cover' but as he walks away the old man asks him "Cap, is that really you?'. He turns and noting the man's World War 2 veteran lapel pin trades salutes with him. As Captain America sprints away the children ask their grandfather 'Do you know him?' and he replies 'We ALL know him'.
The code name for The Avengers release to theaters is Team Building.
Surpassed The Dark Knight's record of $1,001,921,825 to become the highest grossing comic book film of all time
A combination of voices, including those of Mark Ruffalo and Lou Ferrigno, was created for the voice of the Hulk, but it's Ruffalo who speaks the Hulk's only two words: "Puny god."
Clint Barton (Hawkeye) is an ambidextrous archer (although Jeremy Renner is left handed). He is seen shooting right-handed in Thor and both left-handed and right-handed in Avengers.
The film was shot in 92 days.
Colateral damage by Chitauri's invation: $60-70 MDD
Cleaning and Rebuilding Cost: US $90mil MDD
Time for each Avenger on Screen:
Bruce Banner: 28:03. [20:29 As Bruce & 7:34 As Hulk]
Black Widow: 33:35.
The laboratory scene where Bruce Banner explains how he once attempted to commit suicide by shooting himself in the mouth is a direct reference to a deleted scene from The Incredible Hulk where Edward Norton's Bruce Banner tried to commit suicide in this manner out in the middle of Alaska's wilderness only to be stopped by his transformation into the Hulk.
Loki's staff which has a glowing blue gem in the spear head that allows him to control the minds of others is a reference to the Mind Gem. One of the seven Infinity Gems used by Thanos, who is the character shown in the post-credits scene to be the leader of the Chitauri.
In the commentary, director Joss Whedon reveals the arrangement of the monitors on the helicarrier bridge were arranged to resemble the wings of the SHIELD logo. The eagle head can actually be seen at the foot of the conference round table at the end of the film when repairs are being made.
Loki brings the Chitauri alien race to Earth to help him invade it, thus requiring the Avengers to be formed to prevent this. This is in keeping with the comics, where Loki was also responsible for manipulating a chain of disasters which brought together the Avengers in the first place (incidentally, in the very first issue of their self-titled comic book series).
The final end credit scene was added after Robert Downey Jr.. encouraged a rewrite of a previous scene. After Thor rips off Iron Man's mask to reveal an unconscious Tony Stark, who had just fallen back to Earth, Tony originally awakens and asks, "What's next?". Robert Downey Jr. thought the line could be more interesting, and the idea of going to a local shawarma restaurant was born. The scene was added two days after the Hollywood premiere.
The Chitauri, the villainous alien race of this film, were the primary villains of the first volume of The Ultimates, a comic book re-imagining of The Avengers. Subsequently Loki was one of the primary villains of the second volume of The Ultimates, though his appearance had nothing to do with the Chitari.
The decimation of Stark Tower during the final battle destroys the company logo, leaving only the illuminated "A" at the end of the film. This is a subtle nod (and potential sequel set-up) to the comics where the Avengers operate out of a giant building alternatively depicted as an "A" shaped building, or as a skyscraper with a giant "A" crowning the top.
The character the minion is talking to in the credits is Thanos the Mad Titan, a major supervillain in the Marvel Universe. He is a cosmic mass murderer who is literally in love with the personification of Death, which is why he is smiling at the phrase, "To court with death."
In the closing montage of the film, Pepper Potts shows Tony Stark a hologram of plans to rebuild the top of Stark Tower. In the hologram a Quinjet is clearly visible in the middle of the structure, one among several hints in the film to the possible use of Stark Tower as future Headquarters of the Avengers (as occurred in the comic series).
Besides the indication that "The Other" is talking to Thanos in the mid-credits scene (Thanos apparently being his master), there is another subtle nod to Thanos in Agent Coulson's remark to Loki that he lacks conviction and has an innate desire to lose - this, a subconscious desire to fail, is said (in the comics) to be Thanos' only weakness.
