Re: Avengers Movie

I know Lebron James is going to go see it.

In all seriousness though I think it's a terrible idea. Way to many characters from average to below average movies splitting screen time just doesn't work for me. It's corny and forced. Reminds me a bit of Mortal Kombat Annhilation where they just tried to shove as many characters in as possible granted the movie had worse problems then character development but the lack there of didn't help.

If you're not up on your comic books or just not into the superhero thing, you're probably not going to appreciate this movie. The other movies, more or less, were made to lead up to the Avengers movie. From what I have heard just from the midnight showings last night, the movie is clearly one of the best superhero movies ever made. Of course, I want to see it with my own two eyes before I agree with that statement.

Marvel's The Avengers - Rotten Tomatoes

It's got a 93% rating on RT right now which is saying a lot. They normally kill these types of movies.

i think giving iron man, captain america, thor, and hulk their own movies took care of their character development. i believe jeremy renner's character is based on his character from hurt locker

Re: Avengers Movie

I've seen Iron Man and Thor. Both of which I really enjoyed.

I'm not into comic books but I definitely wanna go see this.

Re: Avengers Movie

Also, just a side note from a comic book geek, most if not all of the Avengers are either non-mutant or an alien. The main characters that originated the Avengers are Thor (from Asgard), Iron Man is really nothing more than the equivalent to Batman (Tony Stark = Bruce Wayne, both rich and just normal men), Captain America again just a normal man on the juice, and the Hulk the product of a gamma ray radiation experiment gone awry.

I mean the list of Avengers is very long, even Spider-Man at one point joined the Avengers.

But my point to this is that for the most part the Avengers are non-mutant Superheros...

I thought it was based on Jem from The Town? Oh well, agree to disagree.
