I saw it again, and it almost made me want to watch Thor. Almost.

Beware. My Friend. You will leave that movie just a bit less hetero than you were before you went in. :)

I wouldn't go quite that far.

You do know that Natalie Portman was in that movie, right? 8-)

Why wouldn't you WANT see Nic Cage?

I can't think of a single thing I like about Nick Cage, short of the parodies made about him.

Finally got to see the movie today.

One of the few movies I've seen in theaters lately that was actually worth the admission price.

Will see in theaters again.

I saw it over the weekend with my wife and we both loved it. Neither of us are huge comic book fans either and we hadn't seen any of the other tie-in movies besides Iron Man 1 & 2. The movie itself is completely ridiculous, but from the standpoint of enjoyability, it was a blast and surprisingly very funny. I would definitely not mind seeing it again!

I am one of the running/screaming NYC pedestrians in the film's final act. I wore a black shirt with a trendy hat and hipster glasses. I unfortunately couldn't spot myself when I saw it in theaters, but a friend of mine swears he saw me run right past the camera in a scene where people are being rescued from a bus. In any case, I won't know for sure until I am able to freeze-frame some action!

Yes, I saw you! I saw the movie a second time today and I saw you! You had the black shirt and the black hat, although you were a blur so I couldn't see the glasses :P What was it like being so close to actors like Scarlett Johansen and a big film crew?

Oooh I could imagine. I'd assume he kept those sunglasses on the whole time. Wink wink.

Staring at dat ass the whole time. Any pictures? Or not allowed?

Speaking of Nic Cage. My little brother was also an extra for National Treasure 2. My mother was thinking of bringing her camera in case Cage was there, but she was like "He probably won't be there." She was right next to him. -_-

If I was your father I'd probably seek a divorce after that went down. Just saying, to me, that is pretty unforgivable.

how was he not in this movie?!

That's what happens when you hire an amateur director who is only out to make the studio some cash.

Went to see it today for Mother's Day, and I thought it was excellent. Certainly more of a "let's laugh and watch shit blow up" kind of movie rather than one of a deeper nature, which is good because why get deep when you can just watch HULK SMASH.

Personally I thought Jaimie Alexander as Sif was better, but I have a thing for hot amazon warrior chicks.

I can't believe no one caught this until now.

Nobody caught it cause it wasn't in the movie it was shooped.

But the one guy WAS playing Galaga.

Also, that was a really well-done rendition of Thanos at the end. It actually looks like him. I mean, they took a very non-human character and made it work right.

Here's hoping Avengers 2 will be as good, if not better.

You should've seen how excited my older brother got about that. :)

The movie was awesome, and it did what it was supposed to do: be a LOT of fun. :-D

Yea it's pretty clear by now that it's a movie well worth seeing in the theaters at least once. Personally, I'm going to see it again, in 2D. 3D just isn't my thing, stuff goes darker and messier, at least in my eyes. The Avengers has pretty much everything you could wish from a superhero movie. Unlike with many of the prequel films, this one got it all right and delivered action and likable, distinct characters without cheesy humor thrown in at every turn.

I liked how Iron Man and Cap did that combo thing with the repulsors and the shield. That was just cool.

The action sequences were pretty damn good over all.

Interesting easter egg that was actually in the movie: this.

Yep. It's easy to overlook but it reinforces a lot of the insight we're given into Tony's character, both in this film and the previous Iron Man movies. It shows just how extremely observant Tony is, and how most every decision he makes is spur of the moment.

Yeah! I saw it again in theaters the other day and spotted myself for that split-second. THAT was a weird moment and I think it will be every time I watch it from now on.

Being on set was awesome! 80% of the time, as extras, we were sitting in a holding area waiting for calls to get on set! Unfortunately, I didn't see Scarlet Johanssen, but I did see Chris Evans (Captain America) and the director, Joss Whedon (which was neat watching him work with the actors and his crew from a distance)! Probably one of the coolest things about being on set though is recognizing the setpieces and other people you met once you see the movie.
