Friday afternoon I took a half day and went to go see the Avengers! I've been pumped for this movie since Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America came out. How they would tie them all in and their worlds together. Iron Man was created in more of a real world...Captain America kind of but with a little stretch of a fantasy and then Thor is mythical and being tied into all of this. Then add in Loki, Hawkeye, the Black Widow and Nick Fury, on and the HULK.
The whole thing was amazing from start to finish, and past the credits. It was fun watching the 4 main characters grow a little bit more and also try to grow as a team and the pains that came with it. In my opinion Robert Downey Jr and the Hulk stole the show. Not saying that the Chris's weren't great because they were but I think Downey Jr's Iron Man is more established and the Hulk also needed to be reintroduced. There was also the addition of Hawkeye in here and Black Widow and more Nick Fury. Tom Hiddleston was great too as Loki.
The credits scene sets up an Avengers 2. I can't wait for that, and Thor 2, Iron Man 3 and Captain America 2 and may end up going to see this one again in the theaters! That'd be a first in a long time seeing a movie twice in the theater. Right now its a clear leader in the club house too for my 2012 Summer Movie Awards and Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man have a big hill to climb.
