David Kilmer On The Comics-Makers That Created The Avengers
posted May 14, 2012

I liked your post about the Avengers creators, These Men Created the Avengers. I'm not sure if you've seen the film, but there's a point in the credits which says something like "Special Thanks to" and it lists about ten names. I only caught a few of them because they are tiny and go by in a flash, but Starlin, Thomas, and Millar are among the bunch.

However, the weird thing is that none of these names are included on the IMDB full credits page. Yet, they have room for 2001 other names (if my count is right). Why did they skip this section of the credits? There's also a section of the credits where Kirby and Simon are credited as creators of Captain America. This credit is also missing from IMDB.

I wrote about it on my blog.
