I haven't seen it yet, but based on the trailers and spoilerific coworkers I'm prone to agree with you. Having seven heroes against one villain, even a decent villain in terms of scheming, misleading, and dividing like Loki, is not going to make for a fair fight, an army of mooks or not.

They did a great job with it.

and Hulk was freaking great, a lot of fun watching him go to town on everything.

I think that's what the Hulk movies were missing, The Fun of a Giant Green Rage Monster smashing an army of mooks.


Avenger's sequel is pretty much a given now ($200 million weekend boxoffice take. No way Disney doesn't make a sequel to that)
got new Iron Man, Thor and Captain America films in the works

and I really hope we get a new (and Fun) Hulk movie out of this.
Put him up against the Leader and his army of putty men

Two words. Pure win.

I was really surprised at how much of an impact Hulk had on the movie. He definitely had a lot of rage and intensity that I never payed attention to till now. Thor and Iron Man were their sexy selves as always while Scarlett did a great job acting as Black Widow. AND THEN THERE WAS BARTON WITH THOSE ARROWS OF HIS -gets pierced in the heart- I can't wait for the sequel.

I agree, it was a lot of fun, and the Hulk totally stole the show.

I found Loki's character was a bit weak. For a trickster, he's revenge plot was a little lacking. But, it's a very minor complaint. True to Whedon fashion, he did what he always does; Whedon fans know what I mean.

Avengers made over $200 million domestically. It's made over $650 million world-wide! A sequel is guaranteed.

maybe it was just me but I kind of had the feeling that this wasn't all Loki's plan. It was more something he was forced to go along with.

Particularly that scene where he has to "Report his progress" Loki doesn't like these people and they don't like him, Loki resents doing things this way and the way he flinches from that guy suggests a slight amount of fear.

and of course by the end of the movie we get to see a guy who certainly could force Loki to do things and is definitely someone who can instill more than a little fear.


My guess is this; after the Thor Movie Loki was free and clear and wandering about. We also know he had a tap on Selwig so he knew about the Cube.
Then Loki fell into Big Bad #2's hands and ....had some unpleasant experiences. He gives up the idea of the Cube to save his own skin and makes a deal. He leads an army, hands over the cube gets a handy bit of revenge against Big Brother.



It's all very subtle and it could probably be expanded on but I came away with the impression that Loki is making the best of a bad situation. This isn't how he'd like to do things but by god it's nice to make people bow down. He seemed happiest and most comfortable during the whole part where he was captive, because this was the way he likes to do things.

Those are fair points, but my issue is that Loki is a Trickster God. A trickster like Loki warps other people's plans for his own purposes, but that doesn't happen at all in this movie. Loki is only in it for revenge which doesn't quite work with my perception of Loki. Loki is supposed to be much more devious than this.

As I said, it is a very minor complaint. I greatly enjoyed the movie.

I really enjoyed it, perhaps liked it more than the previous movies about the individual characters. I do have a soft spot for the Hulk and Captain America movies, though. For The Avengers, I thought the storyline was tight and "credible" as far as superhero movies go. The action was exciting and well-done with nice cinematography. I was amazed at the special effects, especially how Mark Ruffalo's facial expressions can still be recognized when he's Hulk, and I really like how prominently Hulk figured in the movie. The giant critters floating around reminded me of that interdimensional whale during the Bleach Bounts arc. Really smooth CG. Liked the end song by Soundgarden. Chris Cornell has an awesome voice. I agree with others' comments about Loki. I kinda forgot that he is a trickster because they don't really play up the mischief.

Yes, I love Joss Whedon, his handling of ensemble casts, and his brand of humor. I've canonized him in my personal pantheon. I now fantasize about him doing Transformers or X-Men or whatever.

And yes, the eye candy in this movie is sweet! I thought Captain America was most handsome, probably because of the personality. Didn't care all that much for Chris Evans in Fantastic Four. But sexy went to Loki.

Having seen it I'll join in the lovefest. Not to get too sidetracked with comparing superhero movies, but it is probably the best one outside of the Dark Knight trilogy.
I'm standing by my reservations about Loki as the (mostly) main antagonist in it, but Greylurker raised some good points and it's already just short of two and a half hours, so having multiple villains would likely to up too much of the run time when the movie is called Avengers and not whatever the Marvel equivalent of the League of Doom is.
