The Avengers gets a name change

February 29th, 2012 by Paddy Comments

It a move that comes as little surprise Marvel’s upcoming Avengers film has been given a new name for the UK. Avengers Assemble was decided on after the studio feared, not unwisely, that some people would strongly associate The Avengers with the adventures of John Steed and Emma Peel et all.

Paddy Ryan, like Buck Rogers, is a man out of time. He's a loose cannon haunted by his past who, when he's not making painful attempts at humour, is busy watching as many geeky films and TV shows as possible. An avid reader, he has vowed one day to start that novel he's been talking about for years. Born in the late 70s, he's an 80s kid at heart who sees nothing wrong with spending hours upon hours watching season three of Robin Of Sherwood. Jason Connery wasn't that bad you know! He's got a million ideas for comic books but thankfully doesn't know anyone with the time to draw them and call his bluff on that one! The Empire Strikes Back is his favourite film, Doctor Who is his TV show of choice and when it comes to books ... well that's a whole other story! I'm Paddy Ryan and you're not...
