Awesome, Awesome, AWESOME! You can choose to nitpick whatever you want but I can pretty much guarantee that this is the most fun you might ever have in a movie theater.

I arrived late to a near sold out Imax 3D showing. Big mistake as I had to sit in the front row. Way too close and made me feel woozy.

This may have really affected my enjoyment of the film, because I felt it was just too much of everything. It's like these characters were so great in their own movies, but they almost cancel each other out. Maybe it was sensory overload or too much of a good thing. Maybe a simpler Batman/Joker dynamic is more my pace now. Seeing it on a normal screen might help.

Hulk vs. Loki got the biggest reaction by far. Hulk pretty much stole the movie.

Tom Hiddleston's Loki totally stole the show for me. His character was pitch-perfect, careening between childish mischief, insane megalomania, and murderous rage. His scenes with all of the Avengers were great, but the continued story arc with Thor was my favorite of the bunch. The Hulk was another standout; this movie "got" him better than either of the two movies that were supposed to just be about the Hulk. My favorite line of the whole movie was Banner explaining that he's always angry.

Just got back from the movie. This was a geekfest that was more than worth the wait. I dare not say anything else out of fear of giving anything away, but this is exactly how a superhero ensemble piece should be done! A lot of fan service, callbacks to the original character movies, and character development where you would never expected it. I fully expected Black Widow and Hawkeye to be afterthoughts, but they got fleshed out more than I ever would have expected.

Fan-freakin'-tastic! I'm seeing it again this weekend!

I thought Mark Ruffalo did fine. I still think Ed Norton is the best Banner out there. But this movie is the best depiction of THE HULK that I've ever seen!


Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
Considering that we still have to wait for Iron Man 3, Cap 2, Thor 2, and the rumored Ruffalo-starring Hulk, teasing Thanos for the next Avengers film at THIS EARLY A STAGE is borderline cruel.


Oh, and I'd be remiss if I didn't mention this...


Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
So over the course of the character films, Agent Coulson gets such strong fan following that in the last few months, he's introduced as a regular in the Ultimate Spider-Man series and he's also going to be introduced in the mainstream Marvel U. He's an ancillary supporting character that people have genuinely started to feel an affection for. This poor bastard never stood a chance in a Joss Whedon film and I'm honestly shocked that I didn't see this Whedon trope coming a mile away.

Yeah, no kidding. I also should have seen that one coming, and it's the one "Whedon moment" that actually pulled me out of the film for a minute. I felt it was kind of a baffling choice that wasn't really necessary, either.

My review. It's one of the best superhero movies ever. I don't want to feel like I'm adding to an echo chamber, but anyone who has an interest in at least one of the main characters will enjoy it.

I enjoyed it very much. The use of humor and excellent use of the heroes may set the bar very high for most superhero movies in the future save Dark Knight Rises. The audience at the midnight screening I attended laughed at the appropriate moments.

The 3D was alright. It made dark scenes a bit darker but overall it didn't ruin the experience for me.

I was wondering when Stan Lee was going to show up. By the end I was concerned about the hero insurance bill.

This movie is also the best cinematic Hulk movie yet.

I see John's '78 Avengers and I raise the 50's Avengers.

This begs the question- What are all the other NYC-based heroes doing as their city is being trashed? Spiderman, X-Men, and Fantastic Four must've been on vacation.

When you think about it, there's been a ton of Marvel superhero movies out in a ten year period. 5 X-Men related movies, 3 Spider-Man with one on the way, 2 Fantastic Four, 7 Avengers related (2 Hulk, 2 Iron Man, Cap, Thor) Daredevil, Elektra, and on and on....they've really cranked them out! Stan Lee has got to be a wealthy man.

Stan isn't suing Marvel is he?

Stan was management, the nephew of the guy who owned the place. He has essentially always been on Marvel's payroll either as writer/editor or Editor-in-Chief or as a consultant since the 1940s.

It's Jack Kirby (and many many others) who got screwed.

That's other people suing Stan Lee because of business deals that he made with them where they are convinced that he somehow sold them his rights to the Marvel characters or the company that they formed somehow owned those rights.

None of those lawsuits have succeeded and all of them feel a bit shady. Beating Stan Lee in court would be hard enough. Beating him when he is backed by Marvel's lawyers who have absolutely no interest in seeing their rights to the characters disputed? Forgetaboutit.

Beating Stan Lee now that he's backed by Disney's lawyers along with Marvel's lawyers? Cotto had a better chance agaisnt Mayweather. And the only way Cotto was winning was if he pulled a .45 in the 1st round.

Hollywood has creative accounting and told him that Spider-man didn't make money, so he got 10% of zero.

Of course, those pale in comparison to the lawsuirts of the kirby estate, and over at wb, the siegel/shuster lawsuit.

But, as has been strongly proven of late, the majority of superhero readers dont care aboyt the issues and some get quite angry about it.

Saw it for the second time today, and I enjoyed Ruffalo a lot more this time as I now knew why he played Banner so different (almost calm and serene) than Norton (neurotic, afraid to hulk out) .... I mean, he definitely grew on me as the movie progressed the first time.
But now I could enjoy his character from the get go.

Other things that I noticed (and thus enjoyed more) this time were Cap's reactions to things relating to this era.
Without trying to go into anything too spoilerish.
He seemed surprised that the new suit would have the flag on it, because he feels people don't care about that (symbolism) any more.

So yeah, I liked it even more the 2nd time around
The fights remain brilliant. The characters are more fleshed out in the 2nd viewing.

Hiddlestone just might be my favorite actor, thanks to his Loki protrayal. His sardonic looks at his foes-who are so beneath him- are brilliant.

Supposedly there's an extra 30 minutes in the directors cut, including some of cap trying to adjust to the modern day. Wouldn't be surprised if there's a specific encounter that makes him surprised by his uniform.

I saw the movie yesterday and loved it. However, I haven't seen any of the "prequels" to it.

So, what should I have known before I saw it? I don't mean plot summaries of the other movies, but were there any moments that I missed something because I didn't know a backstory?

Loved it. The interaction was typical Joss writing and at the same time on spot on for those characters. The fight scenes were amazing. I never felt bored or tired during the last 30 minutes. I can't wait to see our surprise mystery guest in action. My favorite villain and hopefully with my favorite Marvel stories.

People care about the companies screwing people over. If you go Hero Initiative's website, you can make a donation for the price of your ticket. I will be doing more than that if they are at Wizard World. Can't wait for the director's cut. Something tells me the waitress at the end has something to do with Cap.
