Actually I wouldn't mind a SHIELD movie, either following on after the film or delving a little into the pasts of Fury, Coulson, BW etc

2) Accusing Joss Whedon of not displaying "craftsmanship" is a laughable notion. Joss is a very careful craftsman, esp at the script stage. The BW scene is classic Joss juxtaposition of one extreme (heavy action of Widow kicking butt) with another (Coleson waiting patiently while she does so).
Indeed, hell I love the looks BW gives the bad guy one that says pretty much, "Ugh. My boss. " and one that says, "Can you take this from me?"

Alan Silvestri's score album tracks have been revealed...nothing spoilery.

Sounds appropriately big and bombastic, but sadly I don't detect any kind of memorable Avengers theme.

It's a shame that there are catchier and more memorable themes on any given episode of DW nowadays, and yet for some reason these huge, big budget superhero movies can't seem to come up with even ONE anymore.

Heh, yeah I'm having a hard time imagining how this movie could look any cooler. It looks fun, it's got lots of kickass action, and there's plenty of witty dialogue. What more were people really expecting from an Avengers movie?

Do you really think a gritty, serious, Dark Knight approach was gonna work for this movie? With these colorful characters??

Captain America has a good one that wasn't on it's release either.

Exactly. I was afraid that Thor and Captain America also would have that problem. The motto of the LA movies generally seems to be "pull it back", "make it 'realer' ". And audience reactions seemed to bear that out initially. The more "comic-booky" films didn't seem to be as well received (F4 and Green Lantern come to mind).

They pulled Thor way back BUT they left enough in to give it the scope it needed. Cap surprised me...I really expected that they would tone Hydra WAY down, but it really came off pretty much canon, "wacky Nazi science" and all.

And it worked. That surprised me.

To be fair, I'm not convinced it's the comic bookiness that led to the poor reception for those films. I'm pretty sure it was the god awful scripts.

Fantastic Four wasn't very "comic booky" at all. That was really one of the problems with it.

@Chem...Sam Jackson has stated a couple of times in interviews that a "Nick Fury: Agent of Shield" film is in development right now, and is supposed to be one of the films in his nine picture deal with Marvel Studios. Joss has also stated that there is supposed to be mega Shield agent cameos throughout "Avengers" as well that he's promised us.

I'm sure that there will be a definitive theme for the "Avengers". As mentioned "Captain America: The First Avenger" had an awesome one that was not included in it's commercial release. I also wouldn't be surprised if Silvestri attempted to "weave" a theme throughout the score.

The second one moreso than the first was very "comic book-y" with Galactus and the SS as the heavies.

New trailer on ComingSoon is cool as well. The idea of these guys being a ragtag group of misfits up against a much bigger threat is coming through really strong so far, and already has me wanting to root for them.

Which is a really good sign, I think.
