Best superhero thing I've seen since Dark Knight. Whedon knows his comics and the characters and didn't do anything stupid with any of them. He even made The Hulk interesting and fun.

Got to see Whedon filming a big "something flew in from the sky and blew up / crashed down near Grand Central Station" scene last summer, it was wild. My girl and I walked right up into the mix of extras nobody bothered us, I got to talk to the pyro guy - seemed like the perfect dude for the job, looked like DeeDee Ramone and had a blowtorch in his back pocket, haha.

All the cars, taxis, cement turned over and tossed all over the place... and they had a completely blacked-out Porsche Cayenne with a robot camera arm mounted on top presumably for high-speed chase filming.

Been looking forward to the film since - we are convince the scene we saw them working on is in the trailer. lol

Also saw Whedon speak this year at SXSW... it was a pretty good session, even though I'm nowhere near the fanboy that most of the crowd was. I liked the way he talked about the handling of the film though, instilled confidence that it wouldn't be like the early X-Men / Ghost Rider / Daredevil catastrophes.

^ I was expecting a Fantastic Four-style debacle, but it never devolved into that. Each character had their own personality--none of that rah-rah/yay team BS. it was really good. The NYC destruction scenes were so well done that at some points they were a little too 9/11-y realistic. Such a good flick. You'll enjoy it.

Dude. I totally wasn't going there man.

It was more of a public gesture acknowledging that we used to be BFF's and I am open to doing movies and other stuff (i.e. heavy petting) with you again, lol.

I go by the grading system. 3rd base is heavy petting. A home run is a back rub. We are cool...

Not like gory stabbings. A dude throws knives that take out two security guards. One dude gets impaled. It wasn't gratuitous or gross, but it was clear that they were killed.

Caught the matinée today. Totally agree, best super hero thing I've seen in some time. Frankly, I thought the Thor movie was completely contrived, but his back story is essential in this one, and as a smaller character I liked him a lot better. Mark Ruffalo did a nice job as the Hulk. RDJ is awesome as always. I still love Scarlett Johansson. Yeah.

The trailer for the next round of Spider-man looks really interesting, too.

Did they have the new Dark Knight Rises preview before your Avengers? I think that might be the best film of all time. I didn't see the Thor movie because I always thought Thor (as a character) was always so one-note, but using him as a moral barometer in this was brilliant, I thought. Agreed on Scarlett. It's hard to look at her sometimes and not want to steal her hair.

Yeah, that one looks great, too. Was disappointed when they referred to it as the conclusion. On the plus side, my son tells me that Ruffalo has signed on for five more movies as the Hulk, so Marvel must have a lot planned.

Meant to say, too, that I agree with your 9/11-esque take on some of the city scenes. Creepy. I had the same thought.
