I figure I'll open this thread for those of us who have seen it.

My god, was that one of the funniest, greatest, and well done comic book movies of all time?

I hope everyone stayed for the Shawarma King scene at the end. That shit was hilarious.

Second biggest opening day ever. Second only to Harry Potter.

avengers

Looks like it will either dethrone hunger games or Dark Knight for 2 or 3rd places biggest weekend opening.

Just imagine how much money the potential sequel could rake in.

I enjoyed the movie. The beginning is pretty slow and overall it's a little long but the last 45 minutes of that movie is pretty damn entertaining.

one of the better movies I have ever watched. I didn't notice the 3D very much, and like most other 3D movies I found it pointless. My brother had a "nerdgasm" (his words) when Thor and Hulk went at it...his room is almost entirely comic book related shit.

A bit on the long side but it didn't drag on in any part. Kinda funny that the Black Widow only gets a couple pistols while everyone else has some badass weapons or powers...couldnt they give her a desert eagle or something not so unintimidating?

I noticed that too. its probably because the film was converted to 3d after production. like all of the re-released disney movies. not shot in 3D.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. robert downey jr. really made this movie great for me with his comedic relief. and I was pleasantly surprised with the hulk. they really haven't done an overly great job with the hulk in movies thus far. but this was the best so far. he finally looked like the actor playing him. facial feature wise. (the hulk is my favorite comic book hero)

Just saw it today and absolutely loved it. I was worried it was gonna focus too much on Captain America but was happy they all got about equal screen time. The end battle sequence alone was the best segment of film I have seen in a while. My only criiticism is its a little slow getting in, but I would highly recomend it.

It was good movie but I don't think it topped The Dark Knight as being a better film although It'll likely beat The Dark Knight Rises at the box office since it just doesn't have the same hype TDK had.

Overall the movie seemed good though but I didn't like the first 1/3rd of it.Seemed too blantantly obvious they were just pulling out random reasons just to have all these comic book heroes team up however I thought the 2nd and 3rd parts of the film were pretty good.I liked that they had two after the credits scenes too, was nice.

TDK had a shit ton of hype following the death of Ledger. That's all anyone talked about for 2 weeks after he died
