The Avengers Have Assembled....  
....in a bulk of places that are not the United States.

I am looking forward to this movie. Although with probably not as much interest as Thor 2. Given the sheer size of this cast and the plot, I'm skeptical about how much character development we'll get as I'm sure there's an explosions quota this film has to meet. In the words of Tom Servo, "That's enough talking. Time for some kablooey!"

Which is a shame since I'm extremely curious how things are going to pan out between Thor and Loki given the events of Thor.

I read a slew of spoilers about The Avengers and it probably says something about my knowledge of this universe that I didn't even get why half the spoilers I read would be so upsetting or why they'd even be considered spoilers.

Still, until May!

I agree, that considering that there is so many characters in this film, there probably won't be much character development or a lot of one-on-one stuff.

Lots of action, and pretty, pretty explosions...in other words fun, actiony scenes. Still, I'm looking forward to the movie, and have been for awhile.

I have stayed away from spoilers, so I've only seen the trailers they've shown in the theaters (when I've gone to see other movies in the past few months). I am familiar with the comic book canon universe, so I'm not sure whether I'll be upset or not.

However, I tend to view a lot of comic movies with the fore knowledge that it's really hard for the writers and directors to toe the line between the comic fans and the novices when making these films. They have to put enough information in to explain who these characters are (for those who've never picked up a comic book) and yet not bog the movie down with too much information.

I'll be interested to see what bits and pieces The Avengers give us that lead into the next run of comic movies.

I am really interested in the idea of this being an ultimate superheroes movie with everyone and their grandmother being in it.

So far the reviews for the film have been pretty positive so I'm hopeful.

I haven't even seen a trailer yet, but I am totally stoked because I so love the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I haven't seen a movie in theatres since Star Trek three years ago, due to my ill health of late, but I might get my ass out to see this one. Provided they're showing it in 2D somewhere. My eyes don't do 3D and I fear one day this will be my downfall. Curse you 3D fad!

I actually forgot for awhile that this movie was coming until I caught Mark Ruffalo on Graham Norton. After that interview, I'm sort of excited.

And I agree. 3D is awful. It always gives me a headache.

I got about 4 seconds into the interviews on that episode and decided I couldn't sit through the audience clapping and screaming at every single damn thing Nicky Minaj said or did, so I didn't actually get to a part where Mark spoke.

This gives zero info about the Avengers but its just funny: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GwRis0CZhQ

I can now appreciate how funny Mark Ruffalo can be.

Aww, that is both adorable and hilarious. How sweet is it that he remembered those people's names from six years ago? I've always liked him in a 'I want to huggle him' way. He looks cuddly. :-)

He looks cuddly.

He really does. If they ever do a live action movie of Care Bears, he could totally play one.

As irritating as the audience is, there is a lot of hilarity to be had from the couch combo of Mark Ruffalo, Nicki Minaj and John Bishop. Mainly that Ruffalo and Bishop can't stop laughing at Graham Norton trying out Nicki Minaj's slang.
