On my Free Comic Book Day travels, I would walk into stores and exclaim "Man, did that Avengers movie suck or what?" It got funny reactions, and not a single person seemed to believe for a second I wasn't pulling their leg.
The last thing that was this much buzz was Revenge Of The Sith, and haters ruined way too much of the fun. It's beautiful to have something like this that everyone is geeking out about. People I know who aren't at all geeky are over the moon with this thing. It's like the Thriller of movies.
The boys LOVED it, Giovanni literally sat in awe the entire movie didn't say a word at all, eyes WIDE open. The movie ends, we sit through all the credits, and Giovanni turns, looks at me and says
That was the greatest thing I have ever seen.
Then, he looks at the screen and screams at the top of his lungs
THAT WAS TOTALLY AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, that's just fantastic. i like that you share stuff about your kids, KP. I feel like a virtual uncle.
I do not want Stark to be the driver behind The Vision. Introduce Hank creating Ultron and asking for help. No problem. Then bring on the Vision.
I think RDJ Stark would be freaked out by Vision. I think he would be the "It's not can we but should we" guy. And Cap would be completely opposed. "There's only one God, and he doesn't dress like that."
The term Life Model Decoy was used in the flick, so they could go that route.
They did! I forgot that.
One little thing that bothered me about this ...
When Coulson says it wouldn't have worked any other way, because they needed something to avenge.
Is he actually saying that his death will be what makes the Avengers take the name to heart? Not all the other people who were killed? Just him?
I really did think that was weird. I though it was even weirder that it actually seems to have worked.
Well, mainly Stark. Stark's been established as a guy who's self absorbed and something's really got to hit home in order to get him to pay attention. That got him to shut the fuck up for a minute, then he and Cap had their conversation on the matter. And not just Stark, but all of them had met him and liked him in some capacity.
See, this is kinda the difference between Marvel characters and DC characters. DC guys will say "The world needs to be saved! Let's all go save it together!" where Marvel guys are saying "What the fuck is your angle? Why should I trust you? In fact, why would I need you anyway, when I can kick ass all by myself? Kick rocks, bitch." It's no coincidence that the first Avengers story had the line about "There came a day.." These characters are not joiners. But they all liked this guy, none of them managed to save him, they have something to bond over, and if they have a common enemy, then go for it.
But thankfully, this Avengers was comprised of heroes and not the asshats who live in the Ultimateverse.
Yeah, rereading Ultimates as a man 10 years older, Ultimates comes off as way too snide and shitty for my liking. And the cute little meta celebrity mentions every other page have not aged well at all. Shannon Elizabeth and Freddie Prinze Jr, anyone?
I want to go to your movie theater. That was awesome.
