The official Marvel Russia YouTube Channel has very helpfully posted a three-hour long press conference for the Russian press junket. The actual conference doesn’t begin until about 25 minutes in. All the actors’ responses are in English with a translator speaking on top of them, so they’re rather difficult to hear — it’s worth taking a look at though.
While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johansson mentioned they would be open to the idea of solo films for their characters.
“I’d love to do it,” Ruffalo told THR. “I think it would be fun.”
Comic Book Movie has posted an interview with actress Cobie Smulders about her work on Earth’s Mightiest Movie and how she got into the acting profession.
To close out today’s “Avengers” news, here are a few new official stills floating around online.

In an interview with MTV, “Amazing Spider-Man” director Marc Webb spoke about the darker tone of the film and how he wanted to “keep things real.”
“I wouldn’t say we were ever after pursuing darkness. We just wanted to keep things real,” Webb told MTV. “I think it comes down to everything having to emerge from a real place. The reason why Spider-Man is being so playful in that moment is that as a character, he’s feeling drunk on his power. He’s having a really good time. He’s becoming a bit of a bully there. He’s not being deeply altruistic, and that’s something you’ll learn more about when you see the movie. It’s a reflection of his attitude: He puts that mask on and the shy kid is gone. He’s now this really empowered superhero. That means having fun, sometimes at other people’s expense.”

STAR TREK 2
MTV has posted an interview with “Star Trek 2” star Alice Eve, who spoke about her experience in the cast of the upcoming sequel.
“I’m a healthy amount of time in the makeup chair — though not as long as Spock,” Eve told MTV. “We were filming until very late last night, and I know that’s all I can say. It’s a top-secret operation; it’s like a war.”

CASTLE VERSUS IRON MAN
In an amazing promo for both Nathan Fillion in “Castle” and Robert Downey Jr. in “The Avengers,” ABC aired a special tag for “Castle” at the end of this week’s show to help promote “The Avengers.” It’s short, but humorous.
