The thought of sitting through another bloated multi-million dollar-budgeted charade about how “it’s right to fight for justice” when Marvel/Disney can’t cough up the equivalent of, say, one day’s shooting budget for catering or grips to toss a bone to Jack’s heirs—well, that act of enduring that film isn’t at all attractive or appealing to me any longer on any level.
THE AVENGERS? It’s a sham.
The only “team effort” Marvel/Disney understands, or chooses to apply to real-world treatment of those (other than Stan Lee; more on that later this week) who ensured there even was a Marvel Comics for Disney to purchase in 2010, is the team of lawyers they’ve regularly paid to ensure Jack Kirby, in his lifetime, and Jack Kirby’s heirs, since his death, get NOTHING.
2) The CGI for the hulk is... really bad. It would be great for animation, but it's, well, it's a cartoon in a live-action world. They should have gotten a pro wrestler on a wire rig, and in post, dyed him green and scaled him up a head and a half like they scaled down Toby Maguire in LOTR.
Like pretty much all of the post-Iron Man Marvel movies, at the very least you won't regret the time you spent watching it
Thor has, by far, the best villain of any Marvel movie.
Hulk isn't just a strong dude. He's nuts. He's like a tornado, except more powerful, with gorillas instead of wind.
Now all I can think is how awesome it would be if someone made a movie - this style, the CGI, etc. - of The Authority. Screw this lot, I want to see serious wanton destruction.
Hmm ... so maybe Barbarian (Hulk), Paladin (Cap), Rogue (Black Widow), Fighter/Archer (Hawkeye), Sorcerer (Iron Man), Cleric (Thor) ...
Not all of those quite work ...
Robert Downey-Jr and Samuel L Jackson are both teetotal. Who gets the drinks for the Avengers?
It's a dead heat between Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson. Scarlett mixes a mean martini. It was quite rare that we were all there [on set] - it was like a relay race - but there was one weekend where we were all together. I'll never forget the Saturday night in Albuquerque - every mobile phone of every single actor playing every single Avenger received a text message from Chris Evans that simply said "Assemble". The following text message then said "Yes I did. I'm drunk." We met at this bar on the high street and had a really fun time actually. There was a birthday party happening in the same bar and we were all on the dancefloor next to the VIP area. I remember the birthday boy celebrating with his friends... and then seeing Black Widow dancing with Captain America.
I'm holding out for a She-Hulk movie. They can both improve on standard comics-movie plots and cheap out on production by making it a legal thriller. It will be awesome.

a good She Hulk movie would stop halfway into the climax to yell at the screenwriter and director. -- The Whelk
A permanently depowered Jennifer Walters finds that tourists from an alternate universe - designated the Alpha universe - are crossing into her universe - which they call Beta - to gain access to superpowers and comes face to face with her own powered up doppelganger. Jennifer confirms that her Alpha counterpart slept with Juggernaut but her anger quickly turns to sorrow as she realizes that without her abilities, the Alpha Jennifer Walters - while unfamiliar with superhuman law - is far better suited to life in the Beta universe. Realizing this, she decides that she will go to the Alpha universe and let the other Jennifer Walters take over for her.
As she steps through the portal, Reed Richards realizes he can use the previously stored configuration of the Alpha She-Hulk to restore Jennifer's powers. Having regained her abilities, Jennifer remains in her home reality, while the Alpha Jen Walters returns to her own universe and reconciles with her boyfriend, the Alpha Augustus "Pug" Pugliese.
Does Magneto's magnetism work on Thor's hammer? Some fansite has surely documented this!
"This team... doesn't make any sense. And I can work with that. Because it doesn't make any sense to them, either."
"...It's the Vulcans. I don't know much about the Marvel universe, and I thought there were Vulcans."
