    About to disappear and see it now. Hopefully I can get a ticket for the session I want (in around 2 hours). I know that a few sessions have sold out today - so hopefully I won't miss out on getting a ticket.

    ^NO! No no! Not looking at that! I'm waiting a week and half to see it and be surprised on the big screen. I am NOT looking at that!

    It's blocked on my work computer. I hope it doesn't get yanked before I get home.

    It's still up and it was awesome!

    If the rest of the movie lives up to the stinger, then this movie is going to be EPIC!

    Of course, I never actually thought that I'd see...

    Thanos

    ...in a major motion picture, simply because I never thought that the character would work on the big screen, but that short sequence was chilling.

    Very wise. And it was very cool on the big screen.

    Anyways, I got back from seeing it around a few hours ago. Just awesome. Most likely will seen it again sometime soon.

    A review from The Vine. 5 out of 5

    You know, hearing about how incredibly epic and witty and entertaining Whedon's movie is gonna be, I can't help but wonder how the upcoming Iron Man, Cap, and Thor sequels are going to possibly measure up now.

    No matter how well done, they won't help but seem a bit underwhelming coming after something so massive and fun as a team-up movie. It's just gonna be one guy fighting a supervillain again, with writing that probably won't be half as fun as before.

    Maybe Marvel should get Whedon to punch up the dialogue to at least keep some kind of consistency.

    I have faith in Shane Black :) I have a feeling that I'll be seeing "Avengers" multiple times.

    Hearing the good vibes from fellow board members has my already high anticipations at the boiling point. Thanks for putting the end credits in spoiler tags guys but I am going to resist watching so I can be equally ecstatic as you guys seem to be about the sequence.

    I hear that there is nothing actually at the END of the credits, right?
    That this sequence is about a minute or so into the credits reel, correct?

    Hard to have consistency as it is when you're dealing with five to seven different characters each appearing in very different movies with very different tones done by different directors. That Whedon was able to compile them all together in a movie that made any sense whatsoever is a feat inofitself.

    True, but I was just talking about the general entertainment level. There will probably be a lot of critics who measure the Thor and Cap sequels up against the high standard set by Whedon's Avengers.
