Welcome to the Hype, Joeyjojo! We don't have a non-spoiler review thread yet, but one of us should start one once we've seen the movie on Saturday. I'm more than willing to write up a spoiler-free review afterwards.

I know. Isn't it great? Expect Echostation to write up another column about this thread's "epic failure" soon.

Welcome to the Hype, RunDTC!

I believe the embargo on official reviews lifts on the 16th, but reactions from guests, including journalists from entertainment sites will likely crop up online (Frosty from Collider will be tweeting initial thoughts, for instance).

I hope "frosty" abides by the Son of Coul's commands.

Anyone who tweets major spoilers should be shunned by one and all. You can't filter spoilers from Twitter results, so that's unfair to people who want to stay unspoiled.

Yeah, I'll be doing a sorta minimal review. I won't get into details just out of respect to the talent and creators. But it'll be enough to gauge how I felt.

But as of now, I got to go get ready for the PREMIERE!!!!!

I'm not the biggest Black Widow fan around, but anyone who know's anything about The Avengers should know that she brings quite a bit to the table.

Avengers have many members who don't have actual powers, such as BW, Hawkeye, Mockingbird, etc. However, it just shows that those people, if they have some special ability or skill that they are excel at, can make them just as big a superhero as other super-powered beings. Heck, even JLA has Batman and Green Arrow as their members who don't have any superpowers.

Exactly, if everyone was a "powerhouse" then there would be no variety or sense of relatability.

Yeah, Hawkeye was the other one he was going about. "All they have is a stupid bow and a gun" nonsense.

Anyway, if we keep talking about him he might show up so...

That reminds me, I think Hawkeye should be the next Avenger to get some tv spot love since he's been in the trailers/tv spots less than anyone.
