I'm pretty sure they already teased the bad guy for Avengers 2.

This guy

Nah, save him for Avengers 3
Too late he's been teased.

Re: AVENGERS: Grade, Reviews, Discuss, DVD & Sequel **SPOILERS**

I loved the movie and can't add anything that hasn't already been said. But I do have a comment/question about the Hulk though.

To me there seemed to be a disconnect between the way they portrayed the Hulk in his first appearance in the film compared to his second appearance. In the first appearance, he appeared to be an out-of-control monster, pissed off at everyone and everything in his path and could not be reasoned with.

In the second appearance, he seemed to be a rational person willing to follow orders and seemingly completely under control of Banner.

That just totally confused me. So what am I missing?

I know it's faithful to the comics, but that helmet/headdress of Loki's looked kinda dumb.

Well lets see

- We have Nathan Fillion cross promoting "Castle" and "The Avengers"



-Natham Fillion has worked with Joss Whedon in "Buffy" and "Serenity"

-Fillion has been rumored as a candidate for Hank Pym"


I wouldn't be surprised if he does get cast.

OK I saw it...I'm of two minds...its a great, fun action flick, seeing those heroes all at once leaping from my childhood comic book page was thrilling at times, but on a critical level it wasn't a great movie. So I'm left to wonder whether I should bother even being critical of such a movie...? Eh I think I'll let it go for the most part. A+ for fun, B- overall.

At the end of The Incredible Hulk, they seemed to be implying that Banner was learning how to take control of the Hulk.

He was being influenced by Loki.

From the moment Loki made eye contact with him the seeds were planted. You then saw Banner rub his eyes, that wasn't just eye strain. But just in case to reinforce and sell that we had the Black Widow interrogation of Loki where he reveals that play to her. Loki was keeping Banner from being in the same control you saw at the close of the film.

Just a little. For some reason I was thinking of the Ultimate Wasp which meant a little more Asian. I guess they could go anyway they wanted be it 616 or Ultimate.

That's how I read it, and why I thought the Scene Everyone Loves was so narratively right.

Thanks, I would have never figured that out. At the time it happened in the film, I was like but I was enjoying the action so much that I didn't really stop to think about it.
