[QUOTE=D3vils Buddy;35864669]CA, for me, is the worst super hero of the Avengers. Theres no cool factor or cool power that makes him bad ass. Stark - Billionaire, genius, talking AI, Super suit that makes him near invincible Thor - Asgard God, super strength, giant hammer, controls lightning Hulk/Banner - Genius, invincible unless its adimantium, super strength green monster CA - enhanced strength, a sheild Downey is just an all round cool cat. I always imagine his personality out of movies to be just like Starks.[/QUOTE] captain america's underpowered but he's also the most experienced and level-headed of the avengers. he's a natural leader. not to mention that his shield stopped a full on strike from mjolnir
I wanted to see more of the Hulk. Maybe a bit of inter fighting and everyone trying to control him or something. But the movie was awesome!

I always imagine his personality out of movies to be just like Starks.[/QUOTE] To me Captain America is my favorite because he is the pure hearted leader, sure he doesn't have these insane super powers like the rest but he's the one who is able to keep this rag-tag group of insanely powerful and unstable heros together. His top priority is to do the right thing and get the job done.
[QUOTE=0frost;35866598]Cap isn't really a crazy "gun ho mrica" sorta patriot. He just does the right thing. He's just a good guy.[/QUOTE] He's the good guy, always. He's not about America. He's about what America stood for when it was founded, not what it does now.
[QUOTE=Jedi_Rayne;35867145]Did anyone else think [sp]the waitress that Captain America saved, who later talked about The Avengers on tv, saying they had saved her life, is related in some way to the Agent Carter from Captain America: The First Avenger?[/sp][/QUOTE] why would you even make that connection
[QUOTE=Zukriuchen;35867681]why would you even make that connection[/QUOTE] Simply because of how much the movie focused on her in regards to Captain America. I have barely read any of the comics, so I know I am probably wrong, I just thought it odd that the movie seemed to really focus on her whenever she was in a scene.
Yeah, she looks like she had some significance. She kept on looking at Cap right after he saved the hostages if I recall correctly.
Yeah I thought she might be Sharon Carter because of the focus they put on her, but they never explicitly state anything.
I'm pretty sure she's there only to give that idea of "the avengers saved civilians just like you", someone you can relate to, or something. Just like that part when they show Captain America helping people leave the bus (I'm not sure, was it a school bus?), or pretty much whenever they show the Avengers saving someone, she's there simply for that it's what I think, anyway

And you're probably right, she's relatable, a character that can conduct that point.
[sp]I honestly didn't expect Coulson's death to affect me as much as it did. Then I realized that he's appeared in almost every one of the other Avengers movies. They needed someone to Avenge... :([/sp]
Here's some of the things that make Captain America one of the best superheroes of all time: [IMG]http://i1189.photobucket.com/albums/z424/BanthaFodder95/therealcaptainamerica.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i1189.photobucket.com/albums/z424/BanthaFodder95/noyoumove.jpg[/IMG] [editline]7th May 2012[/editline] [sp]That said, Hulk is my favorite Avenger. Hulk is strongest there is.[/sp]
Captain America stands for the american dream more than the country, from what i gather.
Speaking of Thor's hammer being heavy, I remember hearing about a comic where Red Hulk was able to lift Thor's hammer because Thor was holding it at the time. [editline]8th May 2012[/editline] One thing I don't like about the prequel comic, the only character who looks anything like their actor is Fury.
A more interesting movie would be a movie made of the Civil War arc from the comics.

[sp]At the end when some people were talking shit about the Avengers[/sp] it could very well be Marvel planting some seeds that will eventually sprout into Civil war. Probably wouldn't be Avengers 2 but more like Avengers 3. Though I think I'm getting a little ahead of myself here.

Yeah I got a real civil war vibe. But you can't do civil war without Spider-Man. He was the character who was torn and then the dramatic reveal of his identity. He works as a perfect relation for the audience. Plus you probably need a lot more heroes for that and it risks becoming crowded in a 2-3 hour movie. I just want Disney to buy back X-men and Spider-Man. Not remake them, continue the already established actors etc (Garfield, Jackman, etc).
[QUOTE=D3vils Buddy;35852248]I'm guessing they put the A back on so its like A for Avengers now. or [sp]Avengers tower[/sp][/QUOTE] Now we just need Avengers Mansion. [editline]8th May 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=Zinayzen;35865186]also i thought CA could wield mjolnir if he wanted, or was that a lie[/QUOTE] He can only wield it if Thor is dead. When Thor is alive his magic bond to the hammer overwrites the "worthy" enchantment.
this film seems way too overhyped for me, the action was okay but the i thought the humor in the film was horrible, pretty much just a bunch of lame one-liners. typical plot, no unexpected turns and you could guess what would happen from the start

[QUOTE=Dan2593;35871510] I just want Disney to buy back X-men and Spider-Man. Not remake them, continue the already established actors etc (Garfield, Jackman, etc).[/QUOTE] To be honest I wish they'd reboot X-men, I think they did it all wrong it felt like "Wolverine and his amazing friends" First Class did a good job of ammending that, but I didn't like its line up. I would have prefered the first X-men being about the original five, a second film being about the second team being assembled to rescue them like the comics. But I do like Jackman as Wolverine.
The end credits is now available online [url]http://www.methodstudios.com/work/the-avengers[/url] Same studio also did Captain America [url]http://www.methodstudios.com/work/captain-america[/url]
Is it just me, or is the Hulk where Norton performed really weak, compared to the one in The Avengers?
damn, the third and second shot blow my mind CGI rules
I liked this one [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/NZ9Yl.jpg[/IMG] lolwat Dat face
I think it'd be pretty cool to see something set in world war 2, with Captain America and Wolverine.
[h2]How much screen time does each hero get?[/h2] [url]http://www.vulture.com/2012/05/how-much-screen-time-does-each-avenger-get.html[/url] [B]Methodology[/B]: Using the stopwatch setting on the iPhone’s clock function, we timed the entire film (opening scene to beginning of end credits, about 2:12:56), marking off when characters came on- and off-screen. Rather than time each and every tiny cut, we took note of the length of scenes in which characters were prominently featured (scenes in which multiple Avengers were present, like the group conversations on the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, counted toward each character’s tally) as well as multi-second insert shots (nine seconds of Black Widow and Bruce Banner lying injured after the ship is attacked, for example). [B]Hawkeye[/B]: 12:44 minutes. It’s no surprise that Jeremy Renner’s assassin was the recipient of the least screen time. His talent involves being a really good archer with a really awesome collapsible bow and really explosive arrows. His longest scene (2:40) is a conversation with Black Widow following a brawl between the two of them. [B]Thor[/B]: 25:52. Chris Hemsworth gets more than his share of hitting people moments, yet is limited to only one extended dialogue scene — a 2:13-long conversation with brother Loki atop a mountain at night. (Though his perfectly timed “He’s adopted” line got maybe the third or fourth biggest laugh of the film.) [B]Bruce Banner[/B]: 28:03 ... if you're combining the double-duty Mark Ruffalo pulls as both Banner and the Hulk (and you really ought to, since the actor donned a motion-capture suit to play the latter). Still, Ruffalo's unchanged mug gets 20:29 minutes of screen time, which is more than is afforded Renner. [B]Black Widow[/B]: 33:35. The most surprising thing to emerge from our little experiment was the fact that Scarlett Johansson’s three-point landing super-assassin got the third-most screen time of all the superheroes. In fact, she got the most unbroken dialogue scenes of any of the six: her introductory interrogation scene (3:14); recruiting Banner in the slums (2:49); a face-off on the Helicarrier with Loki (3:30); and a conversation with Hawkeye following their fight (2:40). Looks like Whedon realized he needed to give one of the film’s two strong female characters lots of talk time. [B]Iron Man[/B]: 37:01. Not surprising, given the manner in which the Downey Jr. one-liner has become the most reliable part of a Marvel movie. His Tony Stark also gets several extended dialogue scenes: particularly one with Pepper Potts and Agent Coulson (4:48), and another with Loki right before the film’s third-act battle scene (3:52). [B]Captain America[/B]: 37:42. He squeaks by Iron Man, which makes sense, since much of the film’s internal debate about selfishness versus selflessness occurs between Chris Evans’s Cap and Downey’s Stark. He shares substantial scenes with almost every character and is one of the last faces we see on screen, as he rides off on his motorcycle.

Sad to see my least favourite Avenger has the most screen time.
