Who are these people? Sadly too we have been fooled so many times before, I'm hyped, but judgement reserved for when I see it on the 25th of April.
GizmoEl - 4/11/2012, 10:05 PM

Knightrider - 4/11/2012, 10:10 PM
Third one sounds not so great
Joel9127 - 4/11/2012, 10:26 PM
BruceLeroy - 4/11/2012, 10:26 PM
Positive so far *fingers still crossed*
rockerdude22 - 4/11/2012, 10:27 PM
Awesome to hear! Can't wait to read the full reviews!
TheTaskmaster - 4/11/2012, 10:33 PM

Dear First Sergeant.. Fvck you very much for putting me in field training for the next 8 weeks.. why??? whyyyy am I going to miss this awesomeness on opening day??? :(
DBeck - 4/11/2012, 10:34 PM

Wells and Remender are two writers for Marvel, so I bet they were probably in attendance. The one hashtag says Variety, so I'm guessing he writes reviews for them. The rest...I have no clue.
AVEN - 4/11/2012, 10:34 PM
Chitauri? :(
Tymminator - 4/11/2012, 10:35 PM
I know a few of them, even Facebook pals with a few. I am happy.
thecheetoman2004 - 4/11/2012, 10:35 PM
Hmm...the second tweet from the bottom says "Chitauri."

Is the identity of the aliens finally revealed? If it's true, then that means the Chitauri's look has been changed drastically.

And it would make the studio's claims of the aliens not being the Skrulls technically true (since the Chitauri are essentially the Ultimate Skrulls).
BruceLeroy - 4/11/2012, 10:36 PM
The dudes over at variety and slash films seem to love the movie. Looks like Whedon pulled it off folks. Great start for the summer.
thecheetoman2004 - 4/11/2012, 10:36 PM
And by technically true, I mean it's an easy way of bypassing the fact that Fox owns the rights to the Skrulls (or is it the Super-Skrull).
95 - 4/11/2012, 10:38 PM
Chitauri? Is that a joke or have we been going around in circles with the speculation? Come to think of it, the blasters in the alien army's arms resemble the Chitauri's arm blasters.
BrownandYellowWolvie - 4/11/2012, 10:38 PM
it's supposed to be close to 3 hours long! 3 hours of epic heroes!!! can't wait!
SageMode - 4/11/2012, 10:47 PM
I wonder what the haters have to say about this...........I'm waiting. (whistling)
WhoDaFoo - 4/11/2012, 10:47 PM
Wait, did anyone reveal if the big thing chasing Iron Man was Fin Fang Foom?
daywalker1623 - 4/11/2012, 10:47 PM
@the cheetoman
If you look up the info about the Chitauri at the marvel website it tells you that there isn't really a distinct look for them. It only says they have a reptilian look, you rarely seen them because they are shape shifters.
It would make sense they would be used because it seem that Joss is using a lot of Ultimates as a reference.
I don't care what anyone says I will be seeing this movie and like Zeb Wells said I will probably be pitching a tent as well. I've wanted an Avengers movie ever since I was a kid and first read the Avengers.
ibravosp5 - 4/11/2012, 10:48 PM
Avengers will probably be number one this summer.
Emjeed - 4/11/2012, 10:51 PM
It appears, Hulk is the one everyone is going to be talking about after this movie... I like that
DCwanabe - 4/11/2012, 10:54 PM
HULK SMASHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! I love these early teaser tweets. Sounds like hulk is gonna be baddass, so far my favorite marvel fight scene was the one with hulk and abomination.
RainbowRaider - 4/11/2012, 10:55 PM
All I'm curious about is if they screwed over Cap by not making him the clear leader. Someone with a twitter account want to inquire for me?
DCwanabe - 4/11/2012, 10:57 PM
I kind of hope hulk fights the army while Thor goes for Loki Cap is resquing iron man and the other two are just being cool. I kind of want the showdown to be Loki and thor again those two are pretty awesome in a fight.
WhoDaFoo - 4/11/2012, 10:58 PM
I'm glad they like the Hulk, but as much as I love and trust Mark Ruffalo, I think they should have worked it out with Edward Norton. Continuity errors bug me. :/
rockerdude22 - 4/11/2012, 11:00 PM
The fact that these are journalists, and not biased fanboys as far as I know, is very re-assuring that this movie will be critically praised! I think we got ourselves an awesome movie on our hands!
thalidomide - 4/11/2012, 11:01 PM

"It appears, Hulk is the one everyone is going to be talking about after this movie... I like that"

I know right? And people still continue to insist that this will be an "IRON MAN AND FRIENDS" movie. I bet after they watch the movie they will still continue to say it.
DioFoRio - 4/11/2012, 11:10 PM
it's the Redacted?!?!?!Awwww schucks
genesis609 - 4/11/2012, 11:12 PM
im about to stop coming to this site... cuz someone is gonna [frick] it up for me... i dont wanna know the after credits scene... and i already herd BIG... im already thinking thanos... lol... and i hope its not the chitarui... there lame...
thalidomide - 4/11/2012, 11:28 PM
"Just getting out of "The Avengers" world premiere. Thought the film was major. LOT of action, laughs and surprises. Hulk stole the show."

Where are those people who say this is going to be an "Iron Man and Friends" movie? show yourselves! :P
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 4/11/2012, 11:28 PM
What's wrong with the first two acts Jeremy Smith?

I can't wait to see the final battle, it appears to be what everyone is raving about. People who have seen the movie before the premier were also raving about Hulk and Hawkeye stealing the show. I will see this the Monday after it comes out and I can't wait. I have to work Friday through Sunday, with only 2 10 hour breaks :-/.
SageMode - 4/11/2012, 11:32 PM
-SETGECKO -"John Carter early reactions were positive too....turned out mediocre. we'll see"

Actually the twitter buzz for John Carter was pretty lukewarm and not very positive if you look back at the posts....
thalidomide - 4/11/2012, 11:35 PM
I like Wolvie's tweet :P
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 4/11/2012, 11:39 PM
Actually sagemode the tweats prior to it's premier were very positive. The ones after it was released, eh, not so much.

Plus what would people expect? You aren't going to bash the movie over Twitter after they were kind enough to invite you to the premier. I don't expect there is much to bash about this movie, as I have said all along I expect it to be the best Marvel outing yet.
Al - 4/11/2012, 11:41 PM
Ok....this is reeking of awesome sauceness! I wonder if any other heroes/teams may be in play here? Mr. joss Whedon, I'm gonna call it now & congratulate you on the extraordinary success of this film! When I met you while the filming was going on, I knew you had the right stuff! Thank you, sir, for making this fanboy happy! I can't wait to sit in a theater and enjoy this film! Thank you, Joss! The son of Al also thanks you!!
