    The Avengers

    After seeing the small talk in the "rate movie" thread I would love to see what people think of this! I have not seen Capt. America, X-Men First Class, nor Thor. I always enjoyed the superhero adaptations but it seemed like every time you turned around a new one was coming out. This one looks like it could be tons 'o fun though......Thoughts?

    I can't wait to see this one. I liked Thor and Iron Man a lot. Captain America was an entertaining watch as well. Although what I really want to see is the new Batman flick!

    Thor was ok, Ironman I really liked - and Captain America I haven't seen yet.
    The Avengers looks like it'll be a lot of fun.
    I'll definitely watch it in the theatre.

    Like the upcoming Batman movie.

    (and don't forget...The Guilt Trip...)

    I can't wait! I really like this version of the Hulk, too. I love seeing all of these heroes come to life, from out of the pages of comics I read as a kid. I think that adds points to each movie for me. I've enjoyed almost all of them thus far to some degree, even the first Hulk.

    Iron Man was great.
    Thor was good, a little cheesey, but I'm not sure you can expect much more from a Thor movie.
    Captain America was good, but a little slow. It could have used a lot less build up and a lot more action.
    The new Hulk movie was really good, but I'm a bit upset the ditched Edward Norton for the Avengers movie, as he played a great Bruce Banner.
    X-Men first class is good as long as you take it as a stand alone movie from the rest of the series. If you don't then there are huge plot holes.

    I think The Avengers is going to be a lot of fun and a pretty great movie. I am also really looking forward to the new Batman movie, although am a bit sad that it's going to be the last one as the other where all so good.

    Yeah, I was sad over that as well. But you never know, I'm sure it'll rake in the dough and they'll push for another one. In Hollywood nothing is ever final. If there was decent plot room for them to make another one I'd say go for it. But if they wrap it up nicely with this one... Sequels are a hard thing, I wouldn't want them to milk it just for the sake of making money off of the popularity of the first ones.

    I think Christopher Nolan said in an interview that this is the last one that his team will work on. I'm sure another director could take it up and make good movies, but most likely it wouldn't be the same.

    I'd say there will definitely be more Batman movies. Unfortunately Nolan won't be involved. I'm sure they'll do another reboot. Even if they don't start with an origin movie, it will have a different look and feel. Maybe they'll take the Marvel route and have that World's Finest Superman/Batman teamup as a lead-in for a Justice League movie.

    Thurday night at midnight! But do I want to see a movie marathon of Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America, AND The Avengers? It's tempting, but that's a a 15-hour marathon in 3D! I don't think I can take 15 hours of 3D movies.

    Maybe if they showed Ang Lee's Hulk instead.

    I think I'm gonna try and see the midnight showing as well. The marathon is a bit much for me though. Maybe I'll break out the digital projector and have my own marathon at home.... lol

    Come to think of it, Lee's Hulk wasn't in 3D.
