These are what I've found to be the common reactions to this film. I don't understand the jealousy or hatred and I really don't care. I'm just glad such a good film is VERY well liked and is crossing the $100 million domestic mark probably as I type this out. Sets up what will be an epic Avengers film and will make enough to give us a sequel. That's all I wanted... a great film that does the character justice, delivers fun and does well enough to spring in to a full fledged franchise. A job well done.
