    Marvel should have given that guy a certain time limit then They go ahead with Their own plans.
    Fox did that for YEARS with Surfer and I do mean over 10 years, so I'm sure they have somekind of contract set up to prevent that again.
    I mean the way Marvel has things layed out NOW, everything can be slightly changed and still be as good as the original Ultron stories.

    Agreed :up:

    Edgar Wright has had more than enough time to develop Ant Man and Marvel definately should've given him a time limit considering how important Hank is to the Avengers mythos.

    And just think how front-loaded the HP movies were.I think TA has the potential to have some serious legs at the BO.

    I think those traits are spot on, especially with Thor being Obi-Wan since Obi is my favorite Star Wars character.

    She is pretty skinny, she definately was shown up by Black Widow's curvaceous shape, especially during the Loki interrogation scene.

    This movie man, so Happy with it, I think I teared up a couple times at the pure awesomeness on the screen.

    I think the only time I teared up from sadness was with

    Tony taking it rough after Coulson died

    other than that there were more tears of laughter. lol

    I just can't get over how great it was. I wan't to be able to see it again and again. lol

    I gotta admit that I wasn't as sure of Whedon as some people were (not that I was ever a doomsayer either). I never saw Firefly and I thought Serenity was boring and gimmicky (but I loved Buffy & Angel though), but Whedon pulled of a masterpiece.

    Same here tho I loved watching Buffy, and with as many people he had on that show, I could see why Marvel chose him for Avengers.

    http://www.superherohype.com/news/articles/170503-the-avengers-makes-805-million-its-opening-day

    Walt Disney Pictures is reporting an opening day of $80.5 million for Marvel's The Avengers in 4,349 theaters nationwide, building upon the $18.7 million from midnight screenings the night before. If this number sticks, it will be the second-biggest opening day for a movie ever, following behind the $91 million grossed by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 its opening day last summer.

    In our report yesterday on the movie's midnight grosses, it didn't seem like The Avengers was going to be setting any records other than May opening, because it earned less at midnight than last month's The Hunger Games, but what a difference a full day makes. The extraordinary business the movie brought in Friday is a strong indicator that the movie may indeed break the current opening weekend held by "Deathly Hallows." In fact, we could now see the movie opening somewhere between $170 and 180 million, which would completely demolish the $169 million made by the current record holder.

    We certainly know better than to "count our chickens" and breaking that record will mainly depend on whether that Friday business holds up through Saturday and Sunday--the film's rare A+ CinemaScore is a good sign it will have legs. Either way, Marvel Studios' first movie distributed and marketed through Walt Disney is already looking to be the biggest movie released by either, and this puts even more pressure on Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises and its release later this summer.

    Internationally, the movie added another $30 million yesterday, having also opened in Russia and China, and globally, the movie has grossed $415 million, which means that it may have already made back its reported $220 million production budget.

    Yeah kinda, but I mean, I feel like they really destroyed Loki's character. He was humilated multiple times in the movie.

    I didn't think the exploding arrow was humiliating at all, but the Hulk slam definately was humiliating.
