As a card carrying member of "The Merry Marvel Marching Society" you KNEW I'd have to catch this one. Caught it last night and loved it! Felt like I was 7 again going to the "corner store" to get the magazine that was half Capt. America and half Iron Man at the time. Gotta give Whedon credit. It was funny when it needed to be and serious when it had to be, just the right balance.
The entire cast was spot on perfect. I even liked Hawkeye! I especially liked the fact that he ran out of arrows! Finally the hero runs out of bullets! My fave scene though did involve a green personage meeting Thors half bro for the first time. That my friends is how you bring the pain! Stay all the way till the end of the credits as there are two "stingers" at the end. The make the perfect cherry on top of one great ice cream sunday.
I'm sure DC is readying their own Justice League feature but the bars been set mighty **** high and they'll have to really bring their "A" game if they want to match it much less beat it! Nice nuances in Fury's portrayl as well, not afraid to buck his superiors or lie to his team to get the job done. The girl sitting in front of me joyously told everyone that would listen that she was seeing the film for the THIRD time already. That, as they say in the biz, is legs. Welp for those who haven't seen it yet. enjoy the ride!
