So yesterday, it was hot and I was brainstorming ways to get out of the house. We hadn't been to the movies in years and the idea of a movie theater came up. We didn't go but then I decided to look up this movie! Joss Whedon? nice. Although, being 2.5 hours, I doubt we'd go to the theater to see this one, that is a bit too long for us to sit and watch a movie. I'll definitely buy it later on though.

We watched it last night & loved it. So many unexpected funny moments, like the first scene with Black Widow, in the midst of the action. I thought the pacing was good. It definitely didn't feel like 2.5 hours.

We went to see it at midnight Thursday and absolutely LOVED it. I was very excited that Joss's voice didn't get lost with everything else going on. It was a Marvel movie, definitely, but you could tell it was Joss doing a Marvel movie. Everyone in the theatre was laughing at some of the jokes
Spoiler: show
"puny God" and the Hulk punching Thor got the biggest laughs
and there were some that I think a lot of people missed because the dialogue was so fast. I'm kind of excited that it's supposed to rain all week, because that just gives me an excuse to go see it again.

Absolutely. It was so good and SO WHEDONY. It could have very easily been a total caramel cluster, but he made it work so seamlessly.

Also, Tom Hiddleston was amazing. And Mark Ruffalo.

Yeah, it definitely did not feel like 2.5 hours. It was so entertaining if anything I thought it was too short!

Also, it looks like Avengers broke the box office record for opening weekend (previously held by Potter Deathly Hallows pt 2). Between that and
Spoiler: show
f'n Thanos popping up during the credits!
I think it's safe to expect a sequel.

Hey Whedon fans, in case you didn't already know,
Spoiler: show
that's Alexis Denisof playing the Chitauri leader dude! I was also excited about Enver Gjokaj's little appearance.
Hooray for Whedon alums!

I can't wait for it to come to the second run theater so I can see it again.

I had no idea about either of those. Who/where can you see

Enver?
I'm going to see it again this week and I'll be looking for him :)

Enver plays a police officer in the big climactic battle scene in the city. He's one of the cops that Steve/Captain America gives orders to.

I was AMAZED by the fact that I didn't! I have the tiniest bladder in the world, but it must've hung on coz a work of Joss cannot be interrupted (same control manifested for Cabin In The Woods too). Loved it, loved it, loved it. ♥

And if anyone goes make sure you stay till the VERY end credits. There are 2 (two) hidden scenes. One during and one after.

Ah, but that's classic Joss, isn't it? Joyce, Tara, Fred, Penny (Dr Horrible), the good characters always die.

Dude! I stayed to the very end. The people were waiting for us to leave so they could finish cleaning the theatre and NOTHING HAPPENED!

Spoiler: show
I guess I was expecting a death or two what with this being a Whedon movie but I was still so sad when Coulson died. And he was so cute in this movie.

My favourite person in the whole movie has to be the guy who finds The Hulk after he has fallen from the ship. "Are you an alien?"


Anyway, I loved this movie so much. The 3D was fantastic and I just love, love, loved it. It had Whedon all over it and it was definitely very reminiscent of Buffy season 5. I also thought Black Widow was kick-ass. I want to see it again.

P.S. I love Thor. And Mark Ruffalo.

Spoiler: show
Did you watch the Avengers before it was released in the US? Because at the world premiere Robert Downey Jr. said that afterwards they were going to shoot another scene in full costumer. Joss denied it, Ruffalo confirmed it so there was a lot of speculation of whether it was real or not. Theory was it was going to be a second after-credits scene. Looks like that is the case because everyone who stayed till the end of the US premiere got it.

And yes! The old guy that finds Hulk! "Did I hurt anyone?" "No, but you scared a few pigeons". That was great casting. Great acting. What he was saying wasn't even that funny, but just the way he said it was hysterical.

Fantastic! Saw it two nights ago and felt ludicrously happy for Whedon, and I guess everyone involved. It's really so well done. And yeah, I saw the during-credits scene, but didn't stay after that. I found out today about the end-of-credits scene (I hadn't looked at this thread until now), but apparently they weren't showing that outside the US...?

We saw it last night and absolutely loved it. Best Marvel film yet, hands down, and it's definitely because of Joss. There were just so many little things that you knew in your heart wouldn't have been there if he hadn't been involved. And of course

Spoiler: show
Agent Coulson dying, even the way he died,


is so Joss. So good. I knew I would love RDJ, but I kinda fell in love with Bruce/Hulk. I told Mike we're buying it when it comes out on DVD. Joss has to do the next one. Seriously.

Mike and I spent about 10 minutes after we got home looking at IMDb to see who was a Whedonverse alum, and there were at least 5 (Enver I knew immediately, the girl at the end I was sure but couldn't place (also Dollhouse), and a couple other people (including Jeremy Renner! And Alexis!)). I'm so amped for the next one.

I thought Alexis was Thanos (credited as The Other), the red dude right at the end. Or is that who you were referring to?

Nope, The Other (played by Alexis) refers to the guy seen talking to Thanos. Thanos was played (or at least voiced) by an actor named Damon Poitier.
