Russian website, SpiderMedia.Ru, recently posted two concept art images of SHIELD's most notable artifact; The Helicarrier.
It appears to be a CGI screenshot of the Helicarrier design from different angles, along with comic book references.
The design is by artist George Hull (Who also worked on the Matrix sequels)
What I can understand from the rough translation (Thanks to Google Translate), is that last year's Hall of Armors, and Odin's Throne this year at the Marvel Booth will be nothing compared to next year's scale recreation of a Helicarrier! Can't Wait for that!
"Originally it was supposed to appear in the movie " Iron Man 2", but over time things changed and the idea was shelved for later.
Probability of the aircraft carrier in Joss Whedon's new ( Avengers) movie is very high, given that representatives of Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige want to make a big surprise for everyone and build up an aircraft carrier to the top of San Diego Comic-Con 2011."
It was inevitable for the SHIELD Helicarrier to appear in a Marvel Movies. Question is, what do you think of the Helicarrier in the Avengers movie? Is the Helicarrier too big an object for the big screen?
Might we see this big piece of machinery before the Avengers movie? Perhaps in the Thor or Captain America movie?
