If you have been following along, you may know that I was at the last night of the Tribeca Film Festival in New York this past weekend. It was there that I watched the final screening of Marvel’s, The Avengers!
Did you know that The Avengers is already one of the biggest movie money makers of 2012? It hasn’t even opened in the US yet!
The Avengers features:
- Iron Man – Robert Downey Jr.
- The Hulk – Mark Ruffalo
- Captain America – Chris Evans
- Loki – Tom Hiddleston
- Thor – Chris Hemsworth
- Hawkeye – Jeremy Renner
- Black Widow – Scarlett Johansson
- Nick Fury – Samuel L. Jackson
- Agent Phil Coulson – Clark Gregg
- Agent Maria Hill – Cobie Smulders
That is quite a line up! Joss Whedon did an amazing job directing this film! It was in true super hero fashion and all the characters were right on target with what you expect.
I am a huge super hero fan! Always have been. I have to confess a huge love for Iron Man. He and Batman are my super hero loves. Iron Man has always been one of my favorites mainly because of his sarcastic attitude. He is everything I love in a super hero. Being played by Robert Downey Jr. just makes Iron Man even better. He happens to be one of my favorite actors!
Going in I was wondering if they could really do The Hulk justice. I have been pretty disappointed with all of the attempts at recreating The Hulk. I compared all of The Hulks to the original Hulk from my childhood. I have to say, this movie nailed it for me. I loved The Hulk character in The Avengers! He almost stole me from Iron Man…almost…
I was extremely impressed at how well Tom Hiddleston pulled off playing the dark character Loki. He did a wonderful job playing the “super villain”. I have yet to see the movie “Thor” and now look forward to it even more.
I have already read some reviews online featuring spoilers. I don’t want to do that to you. I want you to go in expecting to see a great movie, because you will! I don’t want you to go in knowing the details though. There is nothing more annoying than people ruining the newness.
What you will see a great story, great action, great special effects, great acting and even great humor that will have you laughing out loud. You will leave that theater a fan! Even if you have never been a super hero movie type of person…you will be now! I watched women turn into major “FanGirls” after exposure to The Avengers!
Make sure you stay in your seat when those credits start rolling…there is something that you will not want to miss!
MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS hits theaters everywhere on May 4th!

How funny – your sentence about “even if you have never been a Superhero type of person you will be now”….that’s pretty much what I said about myself in my review! This movie totally converted me LOL.
This was so much fun – and I am leaning toward Hulk being my fave as well. He was amazing!

I loved this movie and had no idea it would be so darn funny.

This movie was WAY better than I expected. I am a total ‘Fan Girl’ now. In fact, when I see it again I may just wear my shirt 🙂 I agree that Hulk’s character was done perfectly and about evened out my rooting for him and Iron Man! Next time we’ll have to chat more as it seems we’re pretty much on the same page!

I was surprised at how well Avengers tuned into that real comic book feel .. this one may be worth watching in more than once!
This movie exceeded my expectations!

I saw The Avengers and your review is spot on. My favorite scene was between the Hulk and Loki. That alone was worth the price of admission.
We love the same Super Heroes! I need to see this again!
