Marvel Superheroes, for example Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. Loki and his team want to destroy the earth. The herores need all their powers to save the world. The director of the movie is Joss Whedon. The actors of the herores are Robert Doney (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captian America), Mark Ruﬀalo (Hulk), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johannson (Black Window), Jemery Renner (Hawkeye) and Tom Hiddleston (Loki). My opinion is that this movie is very good because it is exciting. If anybody likes, the Marvel Films,then it is the right ﬁlm. Besides it is very cool when all the superherores work in one team to ﬁght against Loki. The next part comes 2014 ...
Visa Inc. has teamed up with Marvel Comics to create a new financial literacy ... ...education, this unique partnership features Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk ... and energetic Frenchman who, as a young boy, marvelled at Bruce — or rather, ‘David’ — Banner’s small-screen adventures. After hearing about the project at a meeting with Marvel, the director of the two Transporter films flew home to Paris and worked with a graphic artist friend to create a series of illustrations, which he sent to the studio. Not long after, he was offered the job. Visiting Leterrier at Hulk HQ, a building complex in West LA that also houses production offices for Iron Man and Transformers 2, Empire gets a first-hand look at the paintings, which are spectacular, cinematic and gloriously over-the-top. One portrays Hulk grappling with not one, not two, but six polar bears; in another the gamma freak trashes an NYPD squad car; while a third shows Hulk squatting beneath a moonlit Central Park bridge, as oblivious passers-by stroll above. Between them they showcase all the potential — from comedy to tragedy to pulse-pounding excitement — inherent in the character. Leterrier’s office is littered with more toys than Harry Knowles’ basement: Hulk hands sit alongside towers of comics and prototype action figures for the new movie. Even after two years of 18-hour days and endless debates over details as minor as whether Bruce Banner wears jeans or chinos, the director’s enthusiasm for big green lunks in
dear friends, Welcome to our latest edition of Flora. After three years of near constant construction, tranquility returns to Duke Gardens in 2013. As I write, the plantings added to and around our new features – including the Main Entry Allée, the Mary Duke Biddle Rose Garden and the Page-Rollins White Garden – are breaking dormancy. Our usual late winter display of redbuds and magnolias in the Asiatic Arboretum is a bit late, as we actually had a winter this year…but spring is in the air. In the following pages you will discover some of our curators’ favorite plants and gain insight into their design process. Paul Jones discusses his enhancement of our Moss Garden and Mike Owens takes us through the planning for our seasonal displays on the Terraces. Jan Little takes a look ahead to the first full year of programming in the Charlotte Brody Discovery Garden and Orla Swift introduces us to the new Duke Gardens website. I hope you enjoy reading about some of the volunteers and Duke Students who work with us and the new additions to our staff, including our first endowed position, the Paul J. Kramer Plant Collections Manager (early Duke botanist Paul Kramer was the Gardens’ first director, serving from 1945-1975). We simply cannot deliver horticultural excellence year after year without the dedication of our volunteers, students and staff… and we cannot thank them enough. Duke Gardens ranks among the top public gardens in America. There is so much going on in and around the Gardens that it is hard cover it all in just a few pages. I hope you have a chance to visit soon and often. And, as always, thank you for your support. Sincerely, William M. LeFevre Executive Director

Indoor Garden Design (IGD) is one of the largest independent interior landscape designers in Europe and widely recognised as the UK’s leading commercial provider of tropical plants. Their work can be seen at the British Library and the Joel Robuchon restaurant in London’s Covent Garden where they have created a vertical walled garden. IGD won a silver medal at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2009, for their joint collaboration with James Wong on the Canary Islands Spa Garden. They will be working in partnership with James again at this year’s Show to create a show garden for the Malaysian Tourist Board. The RHS have invited IGD to create the first indoor garden at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show, located in the Royal Pavilion. The theme of the interior garden will be a ‘Living Office’. The garden has been designed with Vitra – the Swiss furniture manufacturer. IGD’s inspiring ‘plant art’ led them to be commissioned by the Sir Elton John Aid’s Foundation to produce live plant sculpture in the style of Jeff Koons at the famed annual White Tie and Tiara Ball. Art has played a major theme in IGD’s recent and they are proud to have been given the opportunity to be involved with the artists whose work was on show at the Radical Nature Exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery in summer autumn 2009. They have once again, collaborated with the Barbican and landscaped the critically and public acclaimed Celeste Boursier-Mougenot ‘aviary’ showing at The Curve until 23 May. Ian Drummond, Creative Director of IGD, has a wealth of expertise and knowledge of plants and their benefits to the office, the environment and commercial space. His focus for the...
