Just read that Marvel can use Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, they just can't refer to them as Magneto's children, or say that they are mutants.

And FOX can use them, just not say that they are Avengers.

I wonder if there's any similar wiggle room for oft-Avengers like Wolverine or Spider-man?

I don't remember if I said this here, but I really like the way that they've worked cosmic/otherworldly elements into these films. I wonder if there's a chance in hell we'd get a planet hulk movie.

I thought it was better than all their collective movies combined minus Iron Man 1. Also, the funniest of all the superhero movies (for a jokester, Spider-Mans were surprisingly low on hilarious zings). Plus, LOL every time Robin Scherbatsky was being all tough.

Screw all the studio rights, they should bring in everybody else to fight Thanos in the Infinity War.

The ending was sort of a big ripoff off Independence Day 4.

Surprisingly devastated by Coulson's death, feel like I've known him for years.

I was forced to see it in 3D so now neither me nor the film have Vision. What a stupid gimmick. Also, I saw ScarJo's 3D butt.

Favorite character? Bruce Banner. Not te Hulk, but Banner.

Reed, Doom, Fury, Stark, Strange, Cho, EVERYONE in the Marvel universe knows that Bruce Banner is *the* expert on gamma radiation. Bringing him in that fashion and playing that up was awesome. Having him have his zen like calm was awesome. The little comments here or there made about "the other guy" was great.

The character development of Banner in this movie is splendidly wonderful, where we gradually see him come to accept his "other side". Once he does this, he is in control of the Hulk. Hulk on the helicarrier when he's chasing a specific someone vs Hulk specifically saving someone in the final battle. And finally....notice how in the one transformation there was pain and rage; the next transformation was smooth, gradual, and natural. No pain.

Plus the smile after someone says "Hulk? Smash".

Mark Ruffalo nailed the role perfectly. His portrayal of Banner was spot on.

Great movie, I'll get the DVD or iTunes version for sure.

The only way that would work is if Nick Fury was working the Avengers about that too... which, as we saw with the cards, he isn't exactly above doing. I'll say plausible.

Joss Whedon's very long, very Whedony thank you to his fans (whedonesque.com)

Warning! Unfiltered Whedon.

I particularly respect him for this, which I'm in agreement with:

JW: There are very few perfect movies. "The Court Jester", "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest", "Godfather" I & II... The list does not go on and on. "The Avengers" is notably IMperfect, which makes its success mean so much more to me -- because it's striking a chord that matters MORE than its obvious flaws. Like the team, it appears to be more than the sun of its parts. Boo-yah!

Late to the dance. I saw the entire Superhero Marathon at the theater. Iron Man 1&2, Thor, Cap, then Avengers premiere at midnight. We didn't get Hulk, but some theaters did. I liked Incredible Hulk, but honestly don't think I could've taken another movie. Five movies is pretty rough.

This was my third time seeing Iron Man and second seeing the rest. I was worried I'd be bored waiting for Avengers, but the time flew by. A few things I noticed:

-Iron Man 2 is nowhere near as bad as people make it out to be. Rockwell and Rourke in particular are fantastic. I love the drunken party fight between Rhodes and Tony.

-Thor is the linchpin of that sets up everything. It is a lot better than I remember, and I am not a Thor fan. Loki is the most complex of the Marvel villains and is really not even a villain fully until the end. He's a jealous manipulator, but is doing the right think for Asgard in his mind.

-I love that Captain America is the only one of these movies to have a sad ending. Totally heartbreaking when Steve says, "Nothing, I just missed a date." While Loki was a tragic complex character, Red Skull is pure over the top comic book villain. I was reminded of the Nazis from Raiders of the Lost Arc more than once. Love the close up of Red's face screaming when Cap and the Commandos are ruining his plans. Comic booky goodness.

-Finally The Avengers. It is awesome and you are a contrary internet douche if you have anything more than nitpicks against the movie. I will say that the commercials blow a few major payoffs. Really wish I had not seen "Hulk...smash" or Hulk catching Tony beforehand.

A lot of what makes a favorite film for me are the moments. A few...

-Paltrow's scene. Didn't expect her. Really wish they had worked Portman in more than they did. You can't tell me Thor would have left Earth before at least getting a smooch.

-Agent Coulson being a Captain America geek. The fact that he's got it together in the previous movies being around Iron Man and even Thor, but he turns into a kid around Cap.

-Ruffalo as Banner. Sorry he's better than Norton. Norton played Norton. I didn't really feel like he was a neurotic scientist. Totally got that from Ruffalo.

-Loki. He's full blown baddie here and is great.

-The death. This actually got an audible reaction from my audience. Amazing that this character had that kind of connection with the viewer.

-Hulk? Smash.

-Flying monkeys! I get that one!

-Tony talking to Banner about accepting what you get and how what could kill him is the same thing that makes him Iron Man.

-I'm always angry.

-Loki? Meet Hulk.

-Thor hitting Hulk with Mjounir.

-Hulk trying to pick it up.

-Cap blocking Mjounir with the shield.

-The Helicarrier taking off.

-Hulk's payback to Thor.

And the post credit review of you-know-who. Our theater guy told us to wait for it which was cool. I pegged who it was during the first scene with Loki talking to his superior.

PS. There is a SECOND post credit scene after everything.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention. Apparently the deleted scenes are going to have Cap finally showing up to that date.

what do you want, it was already a 2.5 hours movie, they had to trim something. I gather he sees her, and sees the world around him, and that's why he's pissed and beating up heavy bags. And that's why he's surprised they want him wearing the flag.

Just read a rather funny thing about what everyone is being non-spoilery about.

They could always use it for Cap 2. I got the impression that Avengers takes place like RIGHT after Cap wakes up. So there really isn't time for him to go to the class reunion.

I thought it was implied with his "they never told us what we lost" line that a short while had passed since he was defrosted. It would take me a few days at least to get from "Yay, not dead!" and "Playstation is AWESOME!" to "modern life is rubbish :(".

It never even occurred to me that catching up with her would have been top of his list though. I mean 70 years have passed and they hadn't even been on one date. You'd probably make sure she was alive and well, but I don't think I'd be rocking up on her doorstep on day one.

They can always bring him back by saying what was killed was a Life Model Decoy.

Seriously, it's been out for a week now and it's made a billion dollars, I think we can stop hiding the posts by now.

EDIT: damn, I didn't notice there was another whole page of posts in here and someone already brought up the LMD but then again, Fury never really said he was dead to begin with.

    I think they're going to go all shutupandtakemymoney.jpg on anything involving any permutation of the Avengers. Iron Man and Hulk, for one, could probably break all the banks in a 300-mile radius.

The Stark/Banner bromance was easily the best part of the movie. I'd pay to see two hours of them hanging out in the lab making fun of Cap and Nick Fury together.
