I have not been a huge fan of all the marvel movies to date. Iron man was the closest to being entertaining for me but that had a lot more to do with Robert Downey Jr. then the movie itself. (Imagine if Tom Cruise had played Tony Stark as the original rumors suggested)
That said, I caught avengers this past week and what an amazing movie it is. I can’t count how many times everyone in the thearter was laughing at the antics that Joss Whedon worked into this film. If you haven’t seen it yet, do yourself a favor and check it out. You won’t be sorry.
