Skip to comments.'The Avengers' affirms, 'There is only 1 God'

The Avengers is one of the few movies that actually exceeds its hype (did the marketers purposefully hide how good this film is to build word of mouth later?) and is not only one of the most entertaining films of 2012 thus far, but may be the most enjoyable summer blockbuster Ive seen in years.

Puny god seems to be the most often understood thing. I saw someone say he said “demi god” which I like better, although maybe a big word for The Hulk.
From a revenue standpoint I think Dark Knight Rises will suffer from not being in 3D. Those extra few dollars on tickets that Avengers will make a big difference over several million people seeing it. I’m personally very happy about DKR not being in 3D. It was shot all in IMAX though, that does make me happy.
Yes, we all did love the scene with him and Loki. And the scene afterward with him and Thor. Wham!
My son and I think he said “puny god” and my wife, who was sitting right next to us, thinks he said “demi god”. Who knows??? It was a cool scene though.
hoc and I went to see the Avengers tonight - I think every showing in two theaters in New Braunfels were sold out. It was great. There were some hokey lines and the space warriors were not well designed, but the movie as a whole was 5 stars.
I spent my allowance on comic books as a kid and then discovered science fiction. The movies rarely do either well, but this time they did.
I can’t help but wonder whether Hollywood understands how subversive movies like this are. When one man stands to tell the bad guy he won’t bow to a man and that there will always be evil men, when Captain America talks about self-sacrifice for the cause and for the team, and when the Captain talks about “one God,” the themes of too much entertainment are shown to be ugly, selfish and shallow.
(I’m thinking that an example of the opposite would be “The Iron Lady” that tells Maggie Thatcher’s life story as though she lived an entire life through moments of dementia.)
That was a great moment with Hulk... but I think the best dialogue is below. [Highlight it to see it so I don't spoil it for those who haven't yet...]
Bruce Banner: "I don't think we should be focusing on Loki. That guy's brain is a bag full of cats. You can smell crazy on him."
Thor: "I care how you speak. Loki is beyond reason, but he is of Asgard. And he is my brother."
Natasha Romanoff: "He killed eighty people in two days."
Thor: "He's adopted."
Cap was going to give a pro OWS speech?
Yes, that was fantastic. Whedon can write ‘em!
