Avengers adds one more shattered record to it's list with today's $6.2m daily domestic haul: Fastest to $400m
Marvel’s The Avengers on Thursday set a new domestic speed record, reaching the $400M box office threshold in 14 days. Worldwide, it has passed Toy Story 3 and Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest to become the #6 highest-grossing film of all time and the highest grossing Disney release ever. Internationally it is the #9 highest-grossing film of all time.

Did I imagine seeing that on a wall plaque in one of those blink and you miss it moments. Where when you freeze frame it on DVD you'll clearly see it, like the Infinity Gauntlet around the 11min mark in Thor.

No, you didn't, it was there and quite longer that the other example.

BTW, last week they released the second issue of three of Black Widow Strikes, concerning Black Widow's mission in Russia between Iron Man 2 and The Avengers.

This comics (like Fury's Big Week, and the trade collecting I am Iron Man, IM2 Agents of SHIELD, IM2 Public Identity & Captain America First Vengeance) bears the "Official Marvel Cinematic Universe Tie-In" red logo.

I went to see Avengers for a second time this week. It was every bit as good the second time as the first. What a kick ass movie! Anyways I stayed through the end credits to see the Thanos and shawarma scenes and couldn't believe it when Soundgarden started playing. Even the f#cking credits kick ass!

Agreed. There's not actually anything funny about this. It's making fun of things that aren't worthy of being made fun of, and is just coming of sounding like a whiny jerk that doesn't like the movie for the sake of not liking it.

Wow, looks like Abridged Scripts finally messed with the wrong crowd. Oh, and welcome to the Internet.

I wouldn't have had a problem with it if any of the jokes were actually funny, or any of the things they were making fun of were actually legitimate problems.

This isn't very original, because Joss Whedon already made fun of superhero costumes. When Cap was criticizing Stark's character, Stark cunningly and perceptively riposted that Rogers was spangled. There is of course no way that a late forties man wearing a Black Sabbath tee could be considered anything but cool. Well, part of Stark's character is that he can be a dick. Dicking around about patriotism doesn't seem to be part of Stark's characters, but this isn't as blatant a Joss Whedon walk on as Thor's "he's adopted" line. Buth then, although I found the movie watchable enough, I didn't think it was particularly good.

But why are people who liked the joke from Whedon up in arms when Abridged Script varies the same joke?

^ You don't MST3K films that are both good and don't take themselves seriously. There's just no material to work with and it comes across as desperate.

I loved the movie but also enjoyed the Abridged Script because I referred to Cap's costume as a "blue spandex hoodie" to my friend after we first saw it and he laughed and agreed. (We thought the costume worked fine without the hood.)

I enjoyed the Abridged Script which was written with a degree or two of humor to it and not the maliciousness that usually goes with the scripts towards far, far worse movies. I also look forward to what "How It Should Have Ended" does with the move.

Some of the men behind MST3K disagree.
