ForceOfLegend - 4/30/2012, 3:20 PM
"Thor is seeing red by the end of the fight." I tried to resist temptation, but I couldn't help it. This movie is going to leave the box office like a boss ;).
hartley07 - 4/30/2012, 3:21 PM
if stark can take a hit from mjolnir, im leaving the theater. this shouldnt even be a contest by any stretch of the imagination. If Thor actually got that mad, Thor would punch ironmans head clean off his shoulders. I love how tony's suit gets crushed and torn to peices ALL THE TIME, and yet by some miracle, the damage never quite goes all the way through the suit, and tony walks away from a battle without even a bruise.

4 days 4 days 4 days 4 days....

I ate a pickled egg.

Now my balls glow in the dark.

Should I be concerned?

Can't wait! Listened but resisted the temptation of watching... :D
headlopper - 4/30/2012, 3:32 PM
These phuquin' theaters around here are only showing it in 3-D.

I gotta drive an extra 10 minutes to get to one that's NOT!

Gouging bastards...

@darthrageracer: Cool story bro

They are going to be writing ballads about this summer. It's [frick]ing Woodstock for Comic Book Fans. This is our summer of '69. As much as Avengers and TDKR will reign, I think Amazing Spider-Man will be a pleasant surprise for people. I'm actually looking more forward to that film, as Avengers and TDKR are almost kind of overwhelming and difficult to grasp in their immensity. Spiderman is a film I can kind of wrap my head around, not so much with the others...
MatchesMalone1989 - 4/30/2012, 3:56 PM
Darthragerracer is telling the truth. lol. The only thing I didn't like was Whedon making it look like Thor and Iron Man fight would really have went to a stalemate. Cap surviving the Mighty Strike was weird too. But other than that it was good. If they do the sequel with Thanos I hope he sticks to the story and all the Avengers die fighting Thanos.
Sparrowsabre7 - 4/30/2012, 4:01 PM
Telling the truth is not the issue, it's that you're being kind of a tool and spoiling the movie for everyone just to get a rise out of people.
Sparrowsabre7 - 4/30/2012, 4:03 PM
@Matches: I think it was pretty clear that Thor would've won had it continued. Thor was most likely holding back and none of the attacks seem to phase him. As for the Cap thing, I think that's just showing how ridiculously sturdy the shield is =P
Sparrowsabre7 - 4/30/2012, 4:04 PM
@Matches: Just saw that Thanos thing...um... what do you mean? All the Avengers died fighting Onslaught, not Thanos as far as I know (and then the whole Heroes Reborn universe blah blah)
MatchesMalone1989 - 4/30/2012, 4:08 PM
Dude they fought Thanos in infinity gauntlet. Thanos in a bid to impress lady death gave the heros a false chance thinking they could beat him. But he literally killed them. Cap, Thor, Tony. DEAD. Cap went out like a g though. Then after he killed them He imprisoned Galactus. Defeated Kronos, The Stranger, Two Celestials, Lord Chaos and Eternity. During all that the Avengers were Dead. It was Nebula who stopped him and returned everything to normal. but thats the story And I wonder if Joss Whedon ha the balls to tell it.
imc21 - 4/30/2012, 4:09 PM
The only reason that caps shield wasn't just annihilated is that it's made from vibranium. It was able to absorb the energy. If it wasn't for that then cap would've been done for haha. We all know that thor could wipe the floor with iron man and cap at the same time easily. THOR V.S. HULK BATTLE IS GOING TO BE EPIC
PeterDarker121 - 4/30/2012, 4:11 PM
@Darthrageracer You're not spoiling anything because you really are bad at explaining action scenes. Face it...nothing that can be described can beat the experience of actually seeing it, so stop embarrassing yourself. Peter Travers you're not.
imc21 - 4/30/2012, 4:15 PM
THANOS [frick]ING OWNS!!! I wondered how they were gonna top the avengers since it is already so unbeleivable that we are actually going to see in on the big screen and what do they do, bring THANOS into the picture....I mean I am super geeking out as to how they are tell this story.. Fiege even that he will be bringing new characters to the avengers and that we'll see either an antman/wasp movie or a guardians of the galaxy movie before avengers 2...I say we bring in antman and wasp and have agent coulson become the vision....BUT ANWAY, how the hell are they gonna do it, THANOS is pretty much un beatable, hell death doesn't even want him

PeterDarker121 - 4/30/2012, 4:27 PM
And in case anybody's wondering, it's ME who's been reporting the lame trolls on this thread who are anything BUT CBM fans for trying to be mean and spoil this movie for the kids that come to this site just looking for daily news. I was lucky enough to have seen the movie, but I would never want to purposely ruin someone's experience. It's pure douchebaggery, plain and simple. As a member of this site, I'll call out the bullies on here when I can, as well as contact CBM personally about those who are doing it.

You've been warned, Bitches.
SageMode - 4/30/2012, 4:36 PM
Why don't some of you shut up and not spoil the movie for people who didn't see it yet.
MatchesMalone1989 - 4/30/2012, 4:38 PM
@PeterDarker121
I agree with you to an extent I mean to e honest spoilers are everywhere You are right he was acting like a douche. But at the same time why dont you waste your time fighting against something that needs to be fought against. like the Patriot Act.
TheCaptain - 4/30/2012, 4:46 PM
@darthrage, Wow someone couldn't admit the movie was awesome lol.
Seriously, if you don't pay to see Avengers in theaters you shouldn't call yourself a CBM fan.
PeterDarker121 - 4/30/2012, 4:55 PM
@Matches The majority of people who come to this site (myself included) don't do so to be lectured on political causes in which they need to be involved, so that's irrelevant.

Don't be a smart ass and dodge the point of what I said. What you're doing is the equivalent of picking on kids at school or bullying them because you have some sort of anti-social mean streak and it gives you balls to do so behind a computer.

So if I feel you are being a douchebag on this site (and I DO), I WILL report you. If you wanna talk about the Patriot Act, go to the Zillion OTHER sites online and discuss it, hater.
MatchesMalone1989 - 4/30/2012, 4:59 PM
Rest In Peace Intruder. He would have been going crazy.....

@Parker

Relax tough guy. No ones hating. Report me if you want. I didn't spoil the movie. I jus said he was telling the truth. And the parts that I mentioned were already spoiled by this site. So what did I really spoil. And don't say Thanos because that was spoiled by this site as well. So what are you going to report me for. Something that Ror or someone else already put us and the kids on too already. Come on guy.
