I know that the film was awesome, but that final scene where the Chitauri says "... would be to court Death" and then we see THANOS turn around grinning! Oh my god, that just blew my geek mind all over the cinema!! :)

You know there was just one thing annoyed me a bit, just a little, little bit on the movie...........that the Cap didn't said "Avengers Assemble"...... but aside that is the BEST COMIC BOOK MOVIE EVER

I thought the significance of Thor hesitating to lift the hammer is that he just saw what Loki did, and he knew they weren't going to be able to reason with him. He knew that as soon as he lifted that hammer, he'd have to use it.

But I agree, I wish we saw a bit more development between Loki and Thor, like they'd have a good conversation while Loki is locked up. Also when Coulson dies.. I don't like how Thor seemingly having the least relationship with him, was so affected by his death..? Then gain I think it could be because he saw that Loki just killed a decent man and definitely enjoyed it, and Thor saw that.

I feel Thor for the shitty end of the stick here for sure though :/

I think my favorite Avenger was Cap. Watching him step up and take the lead was the best. As for other moments I think they all sort of revolved around Mjolnir. As they mentioned in their discussion, Thor actually picking up the hammer and not calling for it was significant. The collision of Cap's shield and Thor's hammer was great. But was also a nice surprise was when Hulk and Thor fought. For a brief second Hulk tried to pick up the hammer! I kinda wish Cap would have wielded Mjolnir briefly but im not complaining. Inhumans next, please!

I can honestly say that Hulk was the most entertaining part of the movie. His moments were the best.

Maybe the best movie I've ever seen...definitely the best comic book movie ever made...hands down. Oh yeah...thanks for the video! I loved watching it!

@jamdown: yeah, it was Thanos and it was pretty awesome. Easy to tell its Thanos as well (if you know who he is, of course).

I feel that Thor was definatly the most affected by the cuts they had to make to the movie. There was just so much about him that wasnt explained well or glossed over, and I think that was my biggest problem with the movie. Still agree with the 5 star rating though, and I cant wait to see it again tomorrow!

I too would love to see Wolverine and Spider-Man. But I highly doubt it because Wolverine is owned by 20th Century Fox and Spiderman is Sony. Unless Marvel and Disney pull a few strings here and there. That would be awesome. I could see Whedon doing a great Wolverine. Maybe better than Brian Singer.

Cause throwing in the two most overexposed characters Marvel has will honestly help it? That's crap. Wolverine and Spidey can't be in Avengers remember? FOX would sue Marvel in they put Wolverine in Avengers cause that won't give them any money. Sony would likely do the same for Spidey. Plus there are plenty of Avengers they could pull from in the next one like Ant-Man, Wonder Man, maybe even Ms. Marvel.

Personally, i enjoyed the movie. Quite a lot, actually. It was fun and entertaining in every way. Proporbly as good as this particular movie could've been given particular circumstances it was made under. But while i didn't really except it to happen, i was kinda hoping for a deeper story and richer characterisation. Especially the Chitauri as villains could've used some sort of motivation that goes beyond the one-diemntional lust for power.

Espeically given how Superheroes are considered modern myths by a lot of people, in a way, i feel these movies could be more than just big action sepctacles, if they just had certain amount of complexity. I mean, yeah, you can have superheroes fighting bad buys who do bad things because they're evil, but personally, i find myself way more invested in those fights when the conflict behind it has some sort of dimension, the two parties involved represent different ethical viewpoint, instead of just good and bad. You know, these things can be parables for real world conflicts with some kind of relevant message to them. For example, in the Young Justice cartoon, the Light dosn't fight the Justice League because they stand in their way as far as getting ultimate power goes, but because they think of them as "champions of stagnation, who are dedicated to maintaining society's calcified status quo" and therefor prevent humanity from achieving its own evolution. And really, if a saturday morning cartoon can give the villains a motivation like that, i don't think it's too much to ask from a 200 mio. dollar movie.

Anyway, all in all, for what it was, an action-adventure summer blockbuster, Avengers was great, but even within that context i felt it could've had more deph to it.

Loved the movie, loved the actors, and loved Thanos scene at the end more then anything........I was just upset that in a sold out theahtre I was literally the only person who knew who he was.............I wish I was joking but one person said Skrull and everybody went with it lol. I kind of wanted to see Thor do more then throw his hammer and shot lighting but I can understand why they didn't write him at full power. I was one of those people angry that the Pyms weren't in this but Hawk and Widow pulled their weight and I was happy to see them stand out and have some great scenes. Might go see it again today because I didn't know about the extra scene at the end after Thanos

I felt bad about Cap's "baby sized" helmet. I mean, why did they switch it? The First Avenger had nailed costume design perfectly!~

The post-credit scene (not the Thanos scene) was totally worth the wait, and it summarized the whole team without saying a single word, lol.

God, I wish Joss Whedon could write the Avengers forever. <3

Really? Did this really or was this just a photo behind the scenes. Because this would actually be funny to see, because there are scenes of the Avengers eating breakfast and out to lunch in the comics.

I think Scarlett Johannson lacks the commanding presence needed to portray a strong female and would have loved for Ms Marvel instead. The big guns are always more fun to watch with powers and such. Also I still prefer the sinew-ey Hulk from The Incredible Hulk. But this one was pretty decent. The most fitting actor/character for me is Hemsworth/Thor by far (Hiddleston/Loki is great also). I'd be rather annoyed if they didn't bring in any new characters to the roster for what I assume to be a definite sequel. (NO LUKE CAGE!)

It got me thinking about a justice league film. Bale, Cavill (if he's good) and the others would be so much more serious.
