I'm not a huge comic book-reading-person-what-have-you, but I've read some here and there and I am quite familiar with pretty much all the characters in the Avengers.

That said, I was really scared that this movie was going to be crap, or at least "meh".

Two and a half hours later, I stumbled out of the movie theater, and I have never laughed so hard in an action movie or fist-pumped so hard to myself at all the awesome moments and awesome awesome awesome awesome.

Awesome.

Can't say I'm surprised. This is Marvels bank after all, they've poured in how many Millions, or even Billions, into these movies with the plain to bring them all together, there's no way they would have risked making it some half-assed attempt.

Still, nice to know they smashed it out of the park.

*Blue Ribbon* Captcha agrees.

According to one of the trivia tidbits for The Avengers over at IMDB, the original cut was over three hours long. Hopefully this cut will make it to DVD/Blu-ray?

Saw the midnight release last night and it was f'ing AWESOME! Hulk smash puny god, awesome use of Cap's shield + Repulsor ray, some good quips from Thor and Scarlet's ass in 3D.

In Joss We Trust, indeed.

I haven't seen Iron Man 2, Thor or Captain America yet, but I have them all ready on standby.

Me and my fiancee are gonna sit down, watch 'em all, then go see The Avengers.

Yeah... yeah, it was really good. Saw it aboun a week ago here in germany and it met my expectations. It was a pure action movie without much complexety but as far as pure action movies go i couldn't think of many movies that are as good at what they're doing as Avengers is. It's well written, well directed, well acted and, which is what makes it work, it features a lot of famous, memorable and likeable characters and knew exactly how to write them.

i am not sure if moviebob has read it but hawkeyes costume is based on the ultimate version not the classic purple costume, and i think it is so much better and more realistic as a paractical and useful outfit for hawkeye in this film and the comics

Will go out to see the movie in a few hours, but as far as the "keep this going" goes I really hope the powers that be can piece together the Black Panther movie that's been floating around.

I can only see Dr. Strange as the next do-able big movie. Not sure if Black Panther, Antman or Namor could make it as a big screen release on their own.

Aw man, now I have to find that joke! Though, I'm planning to rewatch it, I wonder if it'll be added. Can anyone give some tips, maybe a youtube video?

Anyway, I absolutely loved the movie [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/326.373229-Hypnotic-reviews-The-Avengers#14417720], and am glad you did as well Bob, though I never doubted it. I just can't believe how awesome it all turned out in the end. Joss Whedon did a brilliant job, to see my favourite writer/director finally get a big blockbuster, and succeeding so fantastically, gives me great hope for the future. And man is Hulk awesome in that movie. I'm glad the US release is finally here so I can fangasm with the rest of y'all, though it's a bit sad to not be able to gloat over you Americans as revenge for all the TV shows I'm forced to wait on.

This'll be the first Blu-ray I'm gonna buy. Hopefully there's gonna be a box set, can anyone provide info on that?

That was one of the lines that made me laugh--when Cap gets the "flying monkeys" reference.

Hey, I just realized something...

I don't know if I missed it, but no one said "Avengers, assemble!"
