I still have to watch all the other movies to know who's who and what they are about.  Iron Man is the only one I've seen.

The team is: Captain America (guy with the shield), Iron Man (guy in the suit), Hulk (green), Thor (god of thunder), Hawkeye (guy with the bow), and Black Widow (chick). Nick Fury (Sam Jackson) is in charge, and Agent M (guy who looks like a fed) is with him and SHIELD (Google the acronym).

Loki, the god of mischief, is the bad guy and Thor's brother.

Watch:
Iron Man
Iron Man 2
Captain America
Thor
The Incredible Hulk

Hawkeye shows up in Thor, but isn't given a huge back story. Black Widow appears in Iron Man, but again, little back story. Nick Fury appears in them all, usually in the scene after the credits. Agent M appears in most of the films.

Skip Ang Lee's Hulk. It's one of the worst movies ever made.

Loki, yes. Frost Giants, I have no idea. The enemies look a bit too high tech for Frost Giants, which is what made me think of Ultron.

I guess this is spoilers for the lame assholes who have only seen Iron Man.










At the end of Thor Loki fell off Bifrost and it looked like he fell into the wormhole that was fucking up.... the planet of the Frost Giants.  Forget the name.  And as Loki is a Frost Giant, I assumed he would be hooking up with them.

Continuing spoilers from Gordon's last post!!!![U]

The real thing to focus on is the end credits scene from Captain America.

Villains revealed?

And here's and interesting image from the upcoming toy line associated with the film.

Is that War Machine or will we see a new suit of armor?

Filming another scene before release?

As the article points out, VERY interesting that they're doing it after the premiere. My initial guess, since apparently the cast doesn't even know, is that this is going to be the credits scene, and might feature the next villain?

In other news, early reviews are glowing.

From CBM's non-review (not allowed to review until May 2nd):
QUOTE
- For those who were worried about Joss Whedon helming this movie... You have been proven complete and total idiots.

- For those concerned that the large cast of characters would prove too much for one movie... NOT a problem.

- For those who think that underpowered Black Widow and Hawkeye would be underused and have smaller roles... Not so.

- For those worried that all the trailers, clips and commercials have shown all the good parts already... They didn't even scratch the surface.

- For those who don't believe THE AVENGERS will be THE comic book movie of the year... TDKR and Amazing Spider-Man will have to be surprisingly special to take the title.

Crap. Rotten Tomatoes has 18 reviews in so far, and the Tomatometer is currently at 100%.

There is no way a film lives up to this much hype is there?

Here's a review from The Hollywood Reporter, in which I have removed ALL spoilers:
QUOTE
The All-Star Game of modern superhero extravaganzas, The Avengers is humongous, the film Marvel and its legions of fans have been waiting for. It's hard to imagine that anyone with an appetite for the trademark's patented brand of fantasy, effects, mayhem and strangely dressed he-men will be disappointed; not only does this eye-popping 3D display of visual effects fireworks feature an enormously high proportion of action scenes, but director Joss Whedon has adroitly balanced the celebrity circus to give every single one of the superstar characters his or her due. Worldwide box office returns will be, in a word, Marvelous.

Over the past several years, Marvel has, with accelerated speed, expanded its cinematic repertoire of over-muscled, generally double-identitied heroes not otherwise encumbered by exclusive contracts with other studios—most notably The Hulk, Iron Man, Thor and Captain America--to arrive at the point where this summit meeting of superhuman good guys could be assembled. (A prominent relative, Spider-Man, has his own reboot coming up this summer.) After this, the characters will go their separate ways (Iron Man 3 starts shooting next month, with second chapters of Thor and Captain America set to roll within the year) before gathering again before too many movie summers pass. With the bundle this one will make, the pressure will be on make it happen sooner rather than later.

As creatively variable and predictably formulaic as the Marvel films have been, this one will not only make the core geek audience feel like it's died and gone to Asgard but has so much going for it that many non-fans will be disarmed and charmed. This is effects-driven, mass appeal summer fare par excellence, that sought-after rare bird that hits all the quadrants, as marketing mavens like to say. As enormous as the production is, though, the appeal of the ensemble cast makes a crucial difference; you get enough but not too much of each of them and they all get multiple scenes to themselves to shine.

[REDACTED]

It's clamorous, the save-the-world story is one everyone's seen time and again, and the characters have been around for more than half a century in 500 comic book issues. But Whedon and his cohorts have managed to stir all the personalities and ingredients together so that the resulting dish, however familiar, is irresistibly tasty again. A quick coda reveals, to well-versed fans at least, who the new adversary in the next installment will be, underlining a reality as absolute as the turning of the Earth: Especially after this, Marvel movies will go on and on and on.
