Avengers...and I hope the makers don't goon it up.

Looking forward to the next Superman movie as well. He needs to fight Doomsday in this one.

...and thankfully, they DIDN'T goon it up :).

They should all be fun, but of the three, I'm looking forward to "Dark Knight Rises" the most ... by far.

Wow, I must be the only one on the planet that thought the Avengers was just 'decent'. And I was one of the few who laughed at the Legolas joke.

Anyhoo, I'm hoping the Dark Knight does a good job at continuing the series, though that's a high standard to follow up on.

After seeing it yesterday I have to agree with you but we'll have to see how it holds up.  It was great to see the Hulk utilized perfectly.  The two other Hulk movies were not great.  I'm glad they didn't screw this up, there was way too much riding on it.

The Avengera has set a new bar Of standards when it comes to comic book movies. Here's hoping Spider-man and The Dark Knight Rises will be epic as well.

I'm with you Kiorrik.  I only thought it was decent as well. I thought the action scenes were great but the story and characters could have been more developed.

The characters were developed in their own movies.  This is the first Avengers movie but there were five movies leading up to it: Thor, Capt America, Hulk and Iron Man 1 and 2.  Much of the story was developed in Thor and the characters in each movie.

Saw Avengers, thought it was awesome.  Very well done, lots of humor, lots of action, enough of the back story so people weren't totally lost (or could get refreshed), but not so much that that was all the movie was.  

BTW, estimates are 200.3 million.  Besting the last Harry Potter as the largest gross in U.S. history by just over 30 million.

Actual numbers are in at 207.4 million.  2nd largest Friday ever, largest Saturday ever, largest Sunday ever.  Beat Harry Potter by over 38 million for largest opening ever.

I am sorry, I just cannot get excited over anything Hollywood puts out these days.

You say the Avengers is a good movie, cool I believe you, but I rarely expect something good coming out of Hollywood.  Especially big budget, blockbusters.

200+ million is very impressive, but its still nothing compared to what Call of Duty Black Ops, Call of Duty MW3 and Batman AC made in 24 hours and they seem to hire writers who know how to formulate and tell a story.

Joss was all like, " I don't want to do the next movie. But it should be smaller and more personal." First, that's a mean thing to say when you drop Thanos in the last 30 seconds of the movie. Also, Marvel is just going to drive dump trucks full of money to his front door.
