    There's only thing I can recommend to anyone who's going to watch the Avengers. Go 2D. The first 15 mins of film are VERY dark. Frustratingly so.

    You don't need to convince me to see the 2-D version.

    man criminal minds is good, not a burden to watch

    that was a particularly gut-wrenching one, though

    Heh, I remember when Joss Whedon was first announced as director for Avengers, there was so much hate for him on the forums.

    Who's laughing now? Huh? Huh?

    I am willing to admit I have not been entirely sure about Whedon as the writer or director before

    and that I have not enjoyed some of his work

    but man, he did a fantastic job this time

    And while I liked Avengers, and it had a ton of good character work, I'm not sure I'd call it the best ever just because there was barely any plot.

    However, it did make me want to see another Hulk movie with Ruffalo.

    I'm entirely expecting a soft-spoken Cap with a wounded heart filled with the past. Captain America, as played by Bono.

    Yeah, quite surprised that they went with that large of a timeskip, and that huge increase in Cast.

    I was unsure how they'd deal with a huge cast when I heard about all these new members joining prior to the next season. Makes sense to start a new roster. But I'm still sad we only had one season for the first roster and just when we we were getting new addictions like Zantanna and Rocket on the team. That said Beast Boy, Lagoon Boy, Robin II, Batgirl, Wonder Girl are all cool.

    edit: I just realized they may have broken up
    Spoiler:

    Hah!
    I told you suckers it was Tim!

    Interesting start to the new season

    The Dark Knight Rises ARG appears to involve helping the GCPD catch "The Batman".

    Out of professional interest... can I ask what you don't like about ARGs? I work on ARGs for some marvelous comic publishers, and their distinguished competitors, so when the subject comes up on boards like this I'm always interested.

    Oddly enough, I'm starting to lose a bit of interest in DK. I mean, I'm sure it's going to be a great movie and all, but just watching that trailer confirms that it might be a bit too serious for me to really enjoy/get hyped about. Except for the bit at the end, everything in that trailer is so angsty and dark and dry.

    Is it just me or did they go way overboard with Bane's voice in the opposite direction? I can't quite explain it, but at least from the trailer, it sounds really overdubbed and not natural.

    I posted this in another thread but I'm thoroughly convinced that JGL is going to be a key point in this film. I think that Bruce is going to be "broken" for most of the film, leaving JGL and Selena to kind of fill the void, so to speak.
