    Default The Avengers Movie sans spoilers

    I wasn't sure if this should go here or in 'Other Comics', so I put it in the cupboard.
    I thought we should open up a thread about the movie. A spoiler-free one.

    I can't review it - there's an embargo on reviews - so here's 12% of a moment:
    If you liked the lead up movies, you're gonna love this one.

    Meh. It's Marvel, so I ain't interested. I liked Iron man a lot, but the sequel was just okay. Haven't seen either Thor or Captain America, nor do i plan to. I 'might' get around to seeing Avengers, in a year or two, if I feel like it.

    Oh, I'm pretty excited for Avengers. I mean, it's no Batman but it is what it is. Plus between this and the cartoon I'm seeing the team line ups that I enjoy the most.

    Well, that works both ways; if you didn't like the others, you won't like this one. If you're not interested, or not gonna give them a chance, well, you're not.

    I prefer it to the Batmans. But, that's me. Note: the little guys aren't in it. (Ant Man and Wasp)
    Yet.

    I'm definitely going to see it. I've been enjoying the lead-in movies, so I'm pretty sure I'm going to like this one.

    Flightpath07, you should see Thor and Captain America. You'll like both!

    There are rumours around of a scene filmed after the showing I went to; it's possible that it's a Hank Pym reference.

    that would be sweet. i use to think the whole antman/giantman wasnt that impressive until i started watched more avengers stuff. was never in to the comics to much. and hank was pretty cool and he uses his powers to a t. hoping vision and wasp show up in the sequel as well.

    He's getting his own movie, btw. Or at least it looks that way.

    There was a sneak preview in Sydney. Apparently there were previews around the world.

    I am very much excited about The Avengers. It was the second comic I got into back in '83 (after Spider-Man), and was my favorite title for most of the rest of the 80's.

    I've also ranged from enjoyed (Incredible Hulk) to thoroughly loved (Captain America) the movies. In fact, I just finished watching the Captain America Blu-ray earlier this evening.

    Also, it comes out two days before my birthday and I plan on seeing it in the new IMAX theater here.

    PEOPLE,
    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE
    CAN YOU PUT IN SPOILER SPACE AT THE START OF YOUR POST WHEN DISCUSSING NAMES OR ELEMENTS OF THE FILM, NO MATTER EVEN IF IT'S JUST A RUMOUR.
    I've spent the last few years avoiding every trailer, every teaser, every description & every promo image and I've only got 8 days till the film's out.
    I really don't want to have to hate this place for spoiling it for me.
    Grumpy old man mode finished. I still love you all really.

    Don't make Phil grumpy; you wouldn't like him when he's grumpy.

    Then Phil's gonna hate me for saying *********** and ************'s knee gets ********, then ***********s his head in!

    Wait, I'm breaking up! Agh!

    Sorry, Phil. I've been trying not to say anything beyond 'is good', but I think I went further than that.
