I saw this today and thought it was a very solid flick. The inclusion of several super-heroes brought in a lot of grey in the otherwise black and white superhero-genre, and the dialog going on between them was generally well-written and funny. The action was good, and had me go "woaw!" a couple of times. Also, the audience- was totally wack. They laughed at like all the jokes. Even those who one could see coming a mile away. At the point the Norwegian city Tromsø was mentioned- loud laughter. But, the wackest thing was how they applauded the film's characters whenever they did something really awesome. At times it got really out of hand. It was like watching a sitcom- canned laughter and all. A scene could have opened with the Seinfeld jingle and it would have felt completely normal.
[QUOTE=alien_guy;35748186] I think it's [sp]Thanos[/sp] [/QUOTE] Why is this not spoiler tagged?
The Avengers was much better than I was expecting. [sp]I think it was interesting how Ironman almost sacrificed himself, it seemed similar to what Captain America did at the end of his film. [/sp]I have to say I'm annoyed at Edward Norton for not appearing in this.
Saw it a few days ago. I take back everything I ever said about 3D movies, I really enjoyed it. Also Scarlett Johanssons ass in 3D :dance:
I've just read that they have cut around 30-40 minutes for the cinema version of the movie. Is there a possibility that we will get an extended version like the Lord of the Rings movies?

Except that was at Glastonbury Festival so everyone was drunk or on drugs.
[QUOTE=D3vils Buddy;35747740][sp]Who was that bad guy?[/sp][/QUOTE] [sp]Thanos[/sp]
The movie was good. I don't know if it was the best movie I have ever seen, but it was really good. What's this shit about Ed Norton. I'll take Ruffalo any day over that dude. [sp] the part where he showed up riding a dingy motorcycle and turned into Hulk at will was so good [/sp] And the end, where [sp] Stark almost pulled a Captain America mirroring the talk about taking one for the team [/sp]

When Iron Man was laying on the ground unconscious after putting the nuke into space, the whole cinema was dead silent... Except for this motherfucker who started laughing! :suicide:
I have just watched Thor for the first time (so I could enjoy The Avengers more). Is it bad thing that I like Loki more than Thor? I mean, Thor is just a muscle with a hammer, and Loki is smart and sexy. Great villian, really.

I like that [sp]CA mentioned Stark would never sacrifice himself for the team, but twice he did it. The Helicarrier engines and the nuke. I also got a slight tear in my eye when Stark couldn't call Pepper to say goodbye. They did that scene really well.[/sp]

I still find it weird that the guy playing The Hulk is the same guy who was in Collateral. He looks so different
[QUOTE=WubWubWompWomp;35754117]The Great White Ruffalo is 100x better than Edward Norton. Just sayin'.[/QUOTE] i think ruffalo was a good choice because he's the first one to actually look like a human version of the hulk. similar facial features. even though the hulk totally looks like a chiseled, indian dude. but it's closer than bana and norton
For those who didn't see the credits: [sp]basically in the place where all the bad guys came from, you hear the blue faced guy Loki was talking with talking to some guy about how the humans weren't weak like they thought, then the guy he's talking to turns his head and does this creepy smile. Implying he's going to rape the avengers asses[/sp]
[sp] Loki's space sugar daddy wasn't really enthusiastic about going after the earthlings again. But his friend, Blue Space Emperor #234 was a little more excited [/sp]
Easily best movie I have seen this year, and the 3D didn't bother me either.
Off to go see this now. Fuck yea
[QUOTE=Rusty100;35755729]i think ruffalo was a good choice because he's the first one to actually look like a human version of the hulk. similar facial features. [/QUOTE] That's coz Hulk was Mo-capped with Ruffalo too. So they modified the Hulks face to look like him. [editline]29th April 2012[/editline] Mark also did all the growls etc. But Lou, the usual hulk guy, did the actual audible dialogue. [sp]"Puny God"[/sp] I'm still stunned by how fucking funny the film was without it being out of place. Not a single awkward joke. [editline]29th April 2012[/editline] If I had three wishes, one would be for Marvel to get all there rights back. I'm glad they got Punisher back.

Went to see this film yesterday in 3D. Fucking incredible. Did the portal remind anyone else of the one at the end of Half-Life 2?
[QUOTE=Adamhully;35757370]Went to see this film yesterday in 3D. Fucking incredible. Did the portal remind anyone else of the one at the end of Half-Life 2?[/QUOTE] The first portal at the start I was like "Lol stargate"
At the end, my friends were all saying; "Holy shit that's Deadpool!" I wanted to smack them, I said it wasn't deadpool and one agreed saying; "Yeah, but Red Skull died in the Captain America film". Grrrrr.
Just got back from seeing this. Day 1 blu-ray buy fo sho. 2 things though: 1. Is the post-credits scene hinting at [sp]a CA sequel? I think that was Red Skull I saw[/sp]. Because that would be awesome. 2. When [sp]Banner rides up on his bike and responds to BW's 'now's a good time to get angry' with 'i'm always angry', is he implying what I think he is?[/sp] Because again, that would be pretty awesome.
Implying that he's the Hulk? ????
