Just four days after my sons and I saw Avengers, my youngest one is STILL wanting to see it again, which is unheard of for him.

I haven't had this much fun at the movies since the first Matrix and Spiderman 2.

I won't spoil Avengers for those who haven't seen it, but man! Those intra-squad fights were ON POINT...nothing untrue to the comic books.

Just Awesome.

Samuel L. Jackson played a GREAT Nick Fury, too.

I didn't even realize that the same actor that played in "The Town" played Hawkeye. He was GREAT as well. I also didn't realize that he had a cameo in Thor.

Anxiously awaiting the next Avengers.

Cable, Bishop, holler.

Also that Deadpool movie starring ryan reynolds would've been awesome.
Ah noes! Did that get canned? :( :( :(

Ugh, the guy looks like a friend of me & my girlfriend. We always joke about it, 'cuz we met the guy on World of Warcraft and his nickname was Smurf. Hence we always call that actor "Smurf".

... yeah I've got plenty of boring stories.

Yeah Jeremy Renner is sent up high when Thor first tries to get the hammer when he comes to earth.  I didn't realize he was Hawkeye until I saw he was cast as Hawkeye in the Avengers.  They certainly didn't make it clear that was his role and I believe only true die hard Avengers fans would have caught it.

Dang. That's pretty far off.

Cable, Bishop, Apocalypse, a *decent* Gambit, Deadpool, Omega Red, Spiderman Noir, Thanos, Mr Sinister and perhaps a grown-up version of rogue that resembles rogue from the cartoons :p

Any of those in a movie would be nice.

For some reason, I caught it, actually. I think it was both the fact that it was that actor (he's too big to be a random person) and how he acted.

Note that I'm not the biggest marvel geek out there. Only browsed through some of the comics, never owned more than ... 10.

Yep still scheduled for 2014, there are rumors there will be an Ant Man and Nick Fury movie both also out in 2014.  Cap Am 2, Spiderman 2, and X-Men First Class 2 are all also supposed to be out in 2014.  Next year is supposed to be pretty busy as well with Thor 2, Iron Man 3, Wolverine 2, the Flash, a new Superman reboot, and a new Fantastic Four reboot.  

Also some much lesser known comics like Shazam, Sub-Mariner, etc. are supposedly in various stages of production.

Ive seen it mentioned and I want to second it, but any movie with a good Gambit would be a must see in my opinion.  Hands down the best X-men character.

I actually didn't mind him in Wolverine.  I mean obviously it was a supporting role, but I didn't mind the take on him or the actor that played him.

Or the fact that he turns down grabbing a gun to grab a bow. The more obscure reference was that the black guy who was fighting with Thor just before that was Luke Cage (Power Man)

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 gotta say that I was dead set against another spiderman reboot, thought the casting in the last trilogy was spot on. But after seeing the trailer for the new movie, I think it is VERY promising!

Pretty interesting piece on Garfield and his role as Spiderman.  The 2nd and 3rd pages of the piece are a conversation between Garfield and Maguire about the pressure of being Spiderman.  That part is really quite interesting.

DC needs to get on the ball.

No Justice League movie?

Just sad.

They could always take some pieces from the JLU cartoon from a few years ago. The makers of the Green Lantern movie were even kind enough to introduce Amanda Waller (CADMUS).

Marvel's completed Elektra, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, DareDevil, Ghost Rider, several Hulk movies, FF4's, X-men...and now Avengers.

DC: Superman, Batman, Green Lantern....and Jonah Hex??

C'mon, DC!
