Hollywood film execs are cowards - well they are gambling with 10s of millions, so i can see how it could make you nervous - but in this case they've shot themselves in the foot. "Avengers" is fine, punchy, straight to the point, and no one., I mean NO ONE, not one single person on the face of the planet was gonna be confused. And it's insulting that they thought we would be. Frankly, I'm offended. Whereas "Avengers Assemble" is just plain stupid. Only people who have read Avengers comics would get the allusion that it's their dumb catchphrase.

Actually I don't hold out much hope for the movie, for a start Avengers was/is Marvels 3rd rated superhero team, behind Fantastic Four and X-men. So it's 3rd rate, even without looking over the fence at JLA and Teen Titans. Also, well, Thor sucked. Iron Man wasn't much better - Downey was fun but really the movie wasn't that hot, I only think it did so well in the US because of the not-so-subliminal factor that most of the bad guys were thinly disguised Taliban. Captain America was pretty good though...

We get to keep the name :P :lol:

the second spidey trailer, i grudingly admit is better then the first, though still a bit emo/twilighty. but it'll tide me over till we can get a proper Spidey 4.

and, "untold story"? no not really, i saw the first film thankyouverymuch.

WOW! Can't wait! :D They should have kept Ed Norton as the Hulk though.

Question.

Is The Hulk movie any good? :?

I've been sort of avoiding it for some reason. Which is odd because I've got loads of superhero DVDs.
