This guy is a mid-level functionary who regularly deals with supergeniuses in hi-tech armor, supergeniuses that turn into hulking beasts, Norse gods, hot superspies and costumed, time-traveling supersoldiers from World War Two, and he acts like he's a mid-level functionary who sells wite-out in bulk. His coolness is based on his blandness in the face of awesomeness.
Basically this.

He's got that whole "Joe Friday" thing down cold.

Re: AVENGERS - movie Discussion, News, Interviews, Pics till release 2

I love the Tony/Loki scene - particularly Stark's little eye-roll on "that's what we call ourselves" - he knows how lame it sounds.

I'm looking forward to seeing an action movie this year where the characters and dialogue are actually clever. This will be the first in quite a while.

While Whedon sometimes is very good in that regard, he is not without his weak spots too. (case in point: "Dollhouse" - also the Black Widow fight clip)

Be optimistic, but don't expect too much. Chances are you just might get a bit disappointed.

The Black Widow fight clip is awesome. Whedon at his best.

Not at all so.

"Chances are..." not. If Whedon disappoints me it'll be about the first time. My standards are quite high enough - just not mind-numbingly narrow and specific.

Chances are this movie will exceed my expectations rather than disappoint them, and they're already pretty high as it is

Why? Are we entering a contest or something? It's a movie. Not a lottery.

I'm loathe to post a CBM link but I think it is probably difficult to hoax or make up tweets for multiple people (although now that I think about it...probably not) anyway here are some collected reactions from those who saw the screening. Overwhelmingly positive I'd say.

What I got from the Loki/Tony clip, Tony was nervous and Downy Jr pulled that off nicely, nervous but pushing Loki to make him think about anything else and not notice what he's just done, putting those bracelets on. For me, a lot of tension there, but it's not a standoff, it's a ploy.

I called the name change.
rumoured for quite some time that Joss and Marvel Studios may not have had the naming rights to the characters, which maybe which Fox. Any way I'm not perturbed by this at all.

Actually, Tony Stark is perhaps the one man who COULD plausibly faux banter with a demigod and make a legitimate attempt to distract him. Stark is a bonafide genius level intellect despite his foppish exterior. He's possibly the smartest single man on Earth (in Marvel movie canon.)

Anyone else trying to banter Loki like that would be much less plausible.

Well, what's anybody supposed to do if Thor's not there? "Hey, Loki, Hold up a minute, let me get Thor on my cell..."

That isn't what I meant. I meant that Thor could banter with Loki in general. I wasn't referring to that specific scene. As others have mentioned, that's classic Tony
