    I've sworn off watching anything new, I've already spoiled myself on a ton of awesome crap.

    3 trailers, I think we're up to four clips now, and a shiton of extended spots.

    Watched what I assume is the latest trailer yesterday before Hunger Games. That's the first time I've actually had my heart elevate in excitement over a movie.

    I think the first time that happened to me was when I saw the trailer for Fellowship of the Ring.

    It's not a movie, but playing WoW for the first time in February of 2004 (During the Friends and Family Alpha) did that.

    4 Clips?

    Black Widow's... Stark & Loki... Fury & Loki... what's the other one?

    Then there's the various character-centric spots, the "Headcount" and theatrical trailers...

    There was a combat scene one that I thought was a clip, but might have been a spot. I specifically didn't watch it as the first second spoiled a fucking awesome shot of Thor and Cap during the battle.

    There's a clip where Nick Fury and Maria Hill are talking. It was shown on Cobie's interview with Letterman IIRC.

    My wife doesn't care for Iron Man that much, but she loves her some Thor. She'll be fun to take to the movie.

    Loki.

    Maybe. More likely he gets dragged unexpectedly back to earth and mistakes are made.

    Hey you know what the best part of that clip was?

    It was an action scene and yet I could see clearly what the fuck was going on.

    but...but...but... THATS UNPOSSIBLE! If I can clearly see whats happening in the fight scene ill easily be able to pick out of the fuckups they made cutting budgetary corners and it will totally ruin my movie experience. How am I supposed to imagine an awesome fight scene while two men hold shoulders and do the hokey pokey if I can clearly see there is more manlove than visceral violence.

    Seriously though, I eagerly look forward to the Hulk smashing everything.

    If I was kidnapped, woke up in a lab, told they were going to replace my vocal cords with those of Tony Jay, and lock me in a sound booth until the day I die I would look those bastards right in the eye and say "Alright you sons of bitches lets do this. This one is for the children."

    The more I think about it, the more I really like the idea that Marvel is reserving the Hulk for other movies.

    There was an interview with Feige that i skimmed because i fear spoilers, but where he went through all the Marvel properties and how they plan on proceeding after avengers. Didn't read his thoughts on Thor because I figure what happens with Loki and Thor is a major Avengers spoiler.

    He said Iron Man is going to get himself in a situation where he can't call the Avengers - like in Iron Man 1 in the cave, when he had to first create the suit. He said making Tony have his "back against the wall" is the plan for IM3.

    He said Cap is going to go into more of a 'political thriller' route - he only knows SHIELD right now. They're all he trusts. So the Cap movie will more than likely include Coulson, Fury - and hopefully Hawkeye. I REALLY hope they bring Falcon in.

    But when asked about Hulk 3 (or 2?), Feige said Hulk hasnt worked in solo movies twice now, and they like him in Avengers, and like that people are real happy with him there. So lets keep him in the universe and keep him around, but use him in those roles where he's around but not the focus.

    So with that said - I really want to see Guardians of the Galaxy get made, and have that spin into a World War Hulk movie. Hulk smashing everything in space would be so fun.

    Dunno. I mean, Coulson knows Thor.

    Remember that whole, "Coulson, we are clearly both on the side of good and I will always be on your side yadda yadda" that Thor said at the end of his movie. I mean, it was really informal, even for Thor, but, it should've left a good impression.

    i'm thinking they're sparring or working out anger issues.

    I do hope everyone goes to see this in 2D.

    I did and the action was cut quick at times but easy to keep up with. Things like Thor vs Iron Man are in a dark forest so I imagine in 3D it may be hard to see. I know when I saw Thor in 3D, the whole ice planet action scenes were so hard to keep up with and so so dark.

    I'm going to the midnight showing: if they offer it in 2D, great I'll go to that. Otherwise, I guess I'm seeing it in 3D.

    I bought midnight 3D tickets. I'm sure it'll be a little darker, but I don't mind so much. Either way, I'm sure I'll eventually see it in both versions.

    I'll be seeing a midnight showing in IMAX-3D.

    While I do have tinting and color saturation issues watching stuff in RealD-3D. I find the light, contrast, and saturation levels in IMAX-3D far better and it doesn't hamper the experience.

    Of course that fight in the forest scene looks pretty damn dark, here's hoping I can follow more than just the lights in IM's suit.

    I saw Thor in 2D and had the same problem.

    I just hope I am able to see Avengers in 2D without having to go to a crappy theater.

    I've actually been thinking about this too. I've got like three weeks vacation this year, it wouldn't kill me to take a day off, see the like noon showing to avoid the crowds, and spend the rest of the day geeking out and playing mini golf or something.

    Noon showing will be just as packed as any other time on Friday. I'm just going to try and get a time for the nice theater with individual leather seats.
