I'm curious what you mean by this line. Do you mean that they are the two that get the most screentime? Or that the movie just does them justice?
The second one. None of the major players is short-changed for screen time in the movie and all get their unique moments.

(Edit: I may be a little fixated on Iron Man and the Hulk because they're long-term favourites of mine.)

That's ridiculous, especially because her review isn't all that bad.

That's good. Though to be fair I am interested in more of Iron Man as well, I find his character in the films interesting).

But like I said, I'm more looking forward to seeing more Thor and Cap.

Though the memory is hazy by this point, I'm pretty sure that as a kid I only cared about the Avengers comic book because Iron Man was in it.

History repeats itself.

I did enjoy it a lot, loved it, and really need a second viewing to make my mind up on it properly, but I still think it wouldn't be my favourite Marvel movie. X-Men 2 still does it for me

Re: The spoiler



I bought Captain America and Thor in anticipation of seeing this movie Friday. Thor I've decided is my favorite character of the lot (thanks largely to Chris Hemsworth) and I really enjoyed Cap, especially for it's old fashioned look and feel.

Just one thing to add, I could understand it in some of those set pictures, but I didn't see a problem at all with Cap's helmet in the movie.



also anyone spot the cameo from Dollhouse's Enver Gjokaj (Victor) as an NY cop?

Okay I loved this film. Easily my favourite superhero movie to date. Funny in all the right places, and dramatic in all the right places.

Ruffalo was great as Banner. So much so that I forgot to be disappointed that Ed Norton wasn't reprising the role.

I'm still giggling at one particular line, but I won't spoil it.
