This was great. Hulk vs. Thor was some of the best yet. "You need to think, Banner!"

GiantNerd - 5/12/2012, 8:27 AM

Darkhawk8 - 5/12/2012, 9:00 AM
@ironman53 hell yeah man! This is a movie you MUST see on the big screen as many times as you can. lol
Darkhawk8 - 5/12/2012, 9:07 AM
lol how about some booty?
VIRILEMAN - 5/12/2012, 9:09 AM
Actually my first thought was "Loki put up a fight with Thor, but HULK took out Loki no problem." So HULK > Thor
NeoBaggins - 5/12/2012, 9:22 AM
Excellent work.
TruePunishment - 5/12/2012, 9:23 AM
I can't wait for the Blu Ray with all the special features! But I guess I'll have to settle with seeing it a fourth time tomorrow in the theater, my life is so hard! Hahaha most fun I've had seeing a movie since I can remember!
Darkhawk8 - 5/12/2012, 9:23 AM

great stuuff

what the hell happen to this site? instaed comment we see hot picture. once a while it's good, but man people start grow up
ironpool007 - 5/12/2012, 9:50 AM
I'm not a huge fan of the Hulk, but the way he was portrayed in The Avengers was nothing short of groundbreaking. For once, he actually looked like a bigger angry version of Bruce Banner. Not even the comics have been able to do that. You can really see Mark Ruffalo's face and expressions, and he also looks a lot like the Jack Kirby design.
MadTitan - 5/12/2012, 9:52 AM
those cool chicks in bikinis---

may i add., those make hot heads cool faster than any ice pack available. and they unite folks on either side of the fence. lol
spideyxmenfan307 - 5/12/2012, 9:59 AM
Dam, this fight was awesome! BTW, I have not introduced myself, I am new here, and I love comic book movies (well not the sucky ones) so hi.
Greengo - 5/12/2012, 10:03 AM
Sup Avengersfan welcome to the partay!

MadTitan - 5/12/2012, 10:04 AM
lol, right Ironman53.

@avengersfan307 - welcome! just a heads up though, crybabies and whiners never win here so don't be one. lol
coalesce - 5/12/2012, 10:10 AM
Looks like I have to see this a fifth time.
Jimdlux - 5/12/2012, 10:18 AM
Awwwwww! I missed the girls in bikinis?


Ha! Made you look! There will never be a better CBM then The Avengers...until Avengers 2 comes out! Hulk use to be my #2 favorite comic book character. After the sneak punch to Thor and what he did to Loki moved him to the #1 position. I would have loved to see Norton as the Hulk, but Ruffalo did a spot on job! Awesome job Whedon!
kevberg - 5/12/2012, 11:20 AM
LOL...THORS fighting with toy Hulk Hands....
BigThor - 5/12/2012, 11:48 AM
@VIRILEMAN - Hulk caught Loki off guard by atatcking him mid sentence, plus he didn't have his spear when he faced Hulk.

Plus if was obvious that thor was holding back due to their relationship, those sure are alot of details you over looked.
RaMan - 5/12/2012, 12:27 PM
Loki needs a staff to stop Hulk?

No contest.

Can wait to see Hulk fight Thanos in Avengers 2

RaMan - 5/12/2012, 12:30 PM

I am all stoked about TDKR but Avengers are ruling and may beat TDK in the #3 spot.

I think that TDKR will get a boost from Avengers and may be equal to TDK.

Dark Knight Rises and Amazing Spiderman are the other top movies for this summer!!!!!
MisterBabadook - 5/12/2012, 12:34 PM
Cool bits of behind the scenes shots. 4 times? If you and your lady has seen it 4 times... That's $80 appx. you've spent on this movie.
dahamma - 5/12/2012, 12:39 PM
Im jsut glad the Hulk Vs THor fight was accurate. Unlike the animated movie where hulk TOTALLY dominated Thor. I was like this crap is unreal. But they got it right in The Avengers, they looked evenly matched, but of course Hulk is wayyyy more savage lol

Best Hulk/Banner yet btw
sexfoodcomics - 5/12/2012, 1:13 PM
that chitari design is sick!!! Granov is an art god!!!
Gerrit - 5/12/2012, 2:08 PM
The fight was amazing!!! Even though Thor was just trying to restrain Hulk while the green goliath was on a rampage and it still looked as if they were on the same level. It would be too much awesomeness to see BOTH fighting with their full strength.
JDUKE25 - 5/12/2012, 3:11 PM
There better be A LOT of special features on the blu-ray or I'm gonna pissed.
Lizardking310 - 5/12/2012, 3:28 PM
wish there was more hulk in the actual movie
Supersonicboobs - 5/12/2012, 4:24 PM
Avengers is extremely overrated! Whedon does not bring the emotional characteristics that was established in individual movies.the comedy is directed at children and the realism in the film went out the door with Black widow being unhurt while captain and thor gets beat up against the same enemies. Its is an invasion and they only move up and down the street!

It does not even connect the dots with the previous movies! How does black widow and hawkeye survive the battle and the G-forces of the alien vehicle.They do not explain Thor comeback,they did not even show Asgard.
The hulk was a children's version of hulk compared to the previous movie ed norton.
This is what people are going crazy with on this site...come on.- this movie provides entertainment but it is a family comedy superhero movie nothing more!

1st class,ed norton hulk, and Dark knight was way way better.
vtopa - 5/12/2012, 7:13 PM
Best hit of the whole movie. Thor puts the hammer into Hulk's jaw! CLANNNNNGGGGG!
rockstar728 - 5/12/2012, 8:17 PM
Thor's a daddy now!
