The only true success DC has had is with Nolan's Batman movies. "The Dark Night" had the 3rd largest opening box office:

Plus it it is still 3rd domestically for all time gross, and 12th worldwide.

But "The Dark Knight" is the exception in DC's mess. They still haven't figured out that people want a good story with good characters. Effects aren't going to save a bad movie. And that's why Marvel is beating DC so badly at the movies.


Which is odd considering just how many good stories and characterizations they have to draw upon. I'm not a big comic book fan myself, but DC has decades worth of stories beyond the origin worth telling. I understand showing the character's beginning is usually a necessity if the character isn't the Caped Crusader or Man of Steel, but it is going to be hard to make a compelling stories of hard to film Flash, the continuity snarled Hawkman, the antiquated Green Arrow, the unknown Atom, and the ridiculed Aquaman that aren't just the formula: normal person, something incredible happens to them, they resist their power, then accept it, and beat the baddie.

I'm biased, but Martian Manhunter and Wonder Woman may benefit if they get movies first from not only being better known, but having more interesting back stories. Please pardon the rant.

The Hulk was awesome in that movie! I loved the part where Captain America said "Hulk, smash!" and the Hulk grins and starts destroying shit. I also liked it when he just randomly punched Thor out of the screen. All the parts with the Hulk were funny, pretty much. His strength was shown really well in the movie too. I guess Marvel did all these things to make up for the mediocre Hulk movies.

Martian Manhunter would be tricky to pull off but has so much potential, he's an amazing character when written well.

god help us though it looks like they are actually going through with a Green Arrow TV series. Only they are ditching the Green and giving him a baggage of family issues like and evil mom and other such things. Arrow coming soon to the CW.


Sometimes WB just makes me want to bash my head against the desk until I can't remember who I even am anymore.

Loki didn't really seem to have done much with his own strength, so the battle between him and the Avengers were quite fast in the ending.

I agree that Loki isnt the best main villain they could of used since he pretty much has a history ( in marvel world) manipulating other people to do his bidding and his planing failing terribly. But I assume that they needed some way to set up Thanous for some avengers movie later on, I'm just glad the new main villain setup isn't Apocalypse...him and his never dying bothers me haha

Thought it was pretty good. I went to see it two weeks after it premiered and the theater was packed! That kinda surprised me, but then I read about how its breaking all these box office records, and now I see why.

Despite being in a large group of people, I had some laugh out loud moments, probably to the dismay of my neighbors. I'm pretty loud when I'm really enjoy comedy. :)

Loki wasn't the best villain, nor do I care for Tom Hiddleston, the actor who portrays him. He's just not...spooky/threatening enough. I like my villains like William Defoe as the Green Goblin. His performance still haunts me.

Not too picky about the little details, because I'm not all that familiar with the Avengers storyline. But, I know my Marvel heros well enough (X-men is more my forte as I'm much more invested in who's-who and all that), that the story wasn't totally lost on me.

Have to add, the scene where the helicarrier takes off was pretty spectacular. As was the armor plated alien creature, and the whole battle scene in NY. All the heros were being badass, and looked damn good doing it. Stuff like that is what makes a big action flick worthwhile.

I enjoyed the Avengers for the ridiculous fight scenes that occurred numerous times throughout the movie. I usually prefer a movie with a binding storyline and that was something The Avengers lacked and frankly I don't believe The Avengers needs a solid storyline, explosions and humour are enough to keep a crowd entertained for a few hours, hey i was. But I won't be going out of my way to see the second installment, and if I do go it'll just be for shits and giggles.

This movie was so awesome! I can't for the Hulk movie after this one if Mark Ruffalo continues to plays him.
