SPOILERS in Thor!!!

Do not read if you don't want to know!!!

Aint It Cool News
Nordling here.

I don't like sizzle reels.  Those are presentations by the studios to show off a film, likely to press or at a convention, and only slightly bigger than trailers.  Some run 20 minutes or so and show key points and action sequences of upcoming films, but it's no way to judge the finished product.  There's a bunch of crappy movies out there that could have amazing sizzle reels.  Just saying.

At CinemaCon this weekend, Katey Rich of Cinema Blend saw THOR's sizzle reel, and it reveals something we've suspected, but weren't sure until now - The Avengers' Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) is in THOR.  And it's not just a cameo either - from reports he has at least one extended scene with SHIELD's Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg).

Marvel is definitely tying up its releases for the big AVENGERS extravaganza next summer.  I'm actually more concerned with the longevity of the characters and how successful they will be as franchises and films.  We'll know more this summer, when THOR and CAPTAIN AMERICA open.

Apropos of nothing, I dreamt I saw CAPTAIN AMERICA last night.  Spoiler: it was awesome!
Nordling, out.
