    I went to see it today with a bunch of friends, some of them geeks like I .. some not comic book fans at all. On a scale of 1 to 10 not one person went below a 9. I wouldn't waste your money on 3d though, but the story was great, action fantastic, lots of humorous dialogue.

    You don't need to be a comic book geek to enjoy this movie, and they finally did Hulk right as far as I'm concerned.

    It did and your kids will love it as will you Showman.. I took your advice years ago on a post you made about Firefly and Serenity, Whedon did a fantastic job on this one as well.

    I just wait for the DVD/netflix to come out.

    Cheaper than to pay for parking, popcorn, pop and movie ticket. Can pause the DVD at anytime for a bathroom break or other interruptions and subtitles are the best!
    Most of the time I follow this but for movies like this I do like to hit the big screen, although I go before noon so I get a discount.

    They got him right in The Incredible Hulk, actually.. Just expanded on him in The Avengers.

    Well I will agree that they got closer with the Incredible Hulk, the first Hulk was bad for sure. I'm thinking though I like Mark Ruffalo as Banner the best.

    I'm going with my prayer group today - lunch at 12:30, movie at 2 p.m. - My youngest daughter saw it Friday and loved it. To warm up, I re-watched "Captain America" last night. The Marvel Comics team REALLY knows how to make great movies. Also, I'm curious to see if I can spot the Stan Lee cameo he does in all the Marvel Comics movies. I think if I could be anybody with any job, I might want to be Stan Lee with his job. I think this guy has fun for a living.

    I haven't seen Capt America, Hulk, Thor or Ironman 2...but I did see Avengers today and really liked it. Might have to go find those other movies,,maybe not Ironman 2, but the other three.

    Thor was decent. I thought The Incredible Hulk (the one with Edward Norton) was better than Hulk (Eric Bana). Still haven't seen Captain America myself.

    Stan's got a nice little cameo, I'm sure you'll see it.

    Really, you can say that about any genre. Good vs Evil is pretty standard stuff going back, oh, I dunno, a few years at least. But when it's well done, it can be a lot of fun. As I said above, I'm a little burned out on the genre itself too but this is easily the best of the Marvel Studios movies. If you like big summer action movies, you'll enjoy this plenty.

    Glad you enjoyed those Whedon works too! It's funny, we were noting today (me in my Avengers t-shirt, wife in her Browncoats t-shirt) that you can see Whedon hallmarks all over the place in The Avengers, yet if you don't know him from Adam (like the majority of moviegoers, no doubt) it wouldn't make a bit of difference in your enjoyment of the film.
