I hope to see Loki again. He was an awesome villain.

sammy19: MannaxOne: Ok, after the "Hulk/Loki" scene. Does anyone know what the Hulk said? I couldn't hear it over my own laughter as well as the rest of the theater.

I saw it twice and think it is two words "______ god"

Not sure what first word is.


Puny.

DamnYankees: DonkeyDixon: MBK: Semi-SPOILERSSSSSSSS

The first transformation was due to pain. When Hulk senses that Banner is in pain, he comes out to not only protect Bruce, but to protect himself (no Banner, no Hulk). When this happens, Banner can't control the transformation. Hulk is in control.

Second transformation? Bruce reveals that he HAS control over the Hulk under normal circumstances. He can turn to Hulk at will. He's "always angry", meaning he can turn it on (but not so much turning it off).

End Semi-Spoilers

Is the first one canon? I like that explanation better, but after hearing the explanation for the 2nd I'd figured the first was just because he didn't trust anyone and was all pissed off. Figured it would've gone for smash, not kill, if left unchecked.

You're not wrong - it doesn't make sense. MBK's explanation is simply something made up to explain it - its fine to do that, but its a flaw in the film. There's no explanation given.


No, it's not "made up" and there is no flaw in this logic. As I said the last time this was brought up, the very last scene in The Incredible Hulk makes it very clear that Banner has learned to transform at will. The Avengers movie also makes it clear that pain/danger/stress will trigger the transformation against his will (he even says he ate a bullet and the "other guy" spat it out, to spell it out for the audience).

The only thing that didn't make sense was that he'd turn back to Banner after falling out of the sky and crashing through a building. If anything, that should have kept him hulked up.

Just got back from seeing it for the first time. Also my first time seeing a 3D film (didn't realize it was in 3D until I got to the ticket window). Loved the film. The 3D was cool but I'm pretty sure I can still live without it. Hell, I might even go see it in the theater again ("in intriguing 2D" probably) next week.

Now all we need is an Avengers/Firefly crossover and I'll be set.

None of this explains why if the Hulk comes out against his will he isn't able to control his rage. It's not explained at all and doesn't make sense.

That is good to hear. He is a great actor and seems to have his shiat together now. I remember Terrence Howard got paid more than RDJ for Iron Man 1.

Maybe. Then again, the big H may now have seen a need to stay out to protect Banner as he was in no danger.

Carth: DamnYankees: Carth: kronicfeld: Marvel should wake up every day thanking the universe for the existence of Robert Downey Jr.


Avengers is going to do way broader business than TDKR even without Imax and 3D. The theater today was loaded to the gills with kids as young as six or seven. You're not going to see parents taking young kids to the way darker TDKR.

Not sure I buy this - Iron Man and The Dark Knight came out within weeks of each other, a TDK had a much bigger box office than IM. I don't see why we can't apply the same logic here.

They don't seem to be marketing TDKR rises as much. Avengers sold out a good number of the shows with 66% being 3d. Unless TDKR rises has a significantly higher theater count it will be tough to beat.


Its not out for another 2 and a half months...

rickycal78: TheManofPA: rickycal78: Barricaded Gunman: Mentat: That was the most Joss Whedon scene ever.

Nope. The shwarma restaturant was.

Nah, I'm gonna go with the headcount scene with Loki and Stark.

It was pretty easy to see Joss's influence on the movie, but I'm glad it wasn't over done.

Semi-spoilery:


A) You are missing the most Joss Whedon based scene
B) It wasn't maximum Whedon because it wasn't a girl that it happened to


End semi-spoilery

I have a pretty good idea what you're talking about, but he does it to male characters as well.


One thing that got me though was the cards. Knowing they were a lie and knowing Nick Fury's love of just being an a-hole to get the job done, I thought that would mean that the individual involved would have some more scenes later on

I'm guessing we'll get that explanation in the 30 minutes that were cut. They talk about it in the comic and I'd be surprised if Joss wasn't aware of the reasons marvel uses. It isn't really important to the film so it makes sense to get rid of a 5 minutes scene just to explain that point.

jmr61: Still disgusted that more people don't have the brains to see Cabin in the Woods.

Excellent movie.


Although The Avengers is pretty good (just like the first X-Men movie is also great) I like Cabin in the Woods better. It makes a statement about horror movies and the audience, and the last third of the movie really makes it great. The appearance of all those creatures and Sigourney Weaver made me smile. Plus the stoner being the smartest one in the whole group.


Also the Hulk was awesome. I thought nothing could match up to the Ed Norton version but Mark Ruffalo is better. And I had no idea that Lou Ferrigno is the voice of the Hulk in this movie!

It's not rage that triggers the uncontrolled transformations, it's pain. Which explains both the "ate a bullet and the other guy spit it out" lines and the almost apologetic look Hulk shoots to Widow after the first transformation. If Banner is caught off guard or in danger, the Jolly Green Giant steps in to run the show.

Honestly, I'd rather see (a younger) Selleck as Stark than Downey. It's not a huge point with me, but ...

Tony Stark was a dark, serious character in the books, whereas Downey plays a flippant playboy. I'm sure there's a good reason why they decided to replace Stark's alcoholism, but to me that was an important characteristic - at one point, he gave up Iron Man completely because he couldn't deal with losing two of his friends, and lived in an alcoholic stupor until he was practically forced back into the armor.

It doesn't take away from my enjoyment of the movies, though. Really, it's that Chris Nolan got Bruce Wayne so right that I want to see some more grown-up and realistic takes on these classic characters.

I get where you are coming from, but I see a lot of movies that aren't visual spectacles at the theater and I wait on certain movies for home even though I'm sure this looks good at IMAX.

I tend to avoid blockbusters in particular because that means bigger crowds, which also means more a-holes screwing up the movie experience, unless that movie is something I'm really expectant for (Django Unchained comes to mind as far as a blockbuster-type movie that I'll see on the big-screen).

ZeroCorpse:

Give credit to Zak Penn, too. He co-wrote the story.

And give credit to Jackson, Downey, and company, too. They showed that the right actors can make even the most outrageous idea work. I don't imagine this would have worked half as well if they had cast someone like Megan Fox as Black Widow and Tom Selleck as Tony Stark.


True, it was a massive shared victory for all involved. The whole Marvel Movie-verse has been a perfect storm of timing and talent.

Unfortunately, the lesson that DC will take away from the Avenger's success is that if they hire big name talent and toss money at a project, it's going to make them a metric fark-ton of money. In other words, they'll learn nothing and keep on their current path.

The opinions will be pretty divided on this according to the many Avengers threads in the last few days. And there'll be some people saying "this isn't real 3D" yada yada.
Some people thought some specific scenes when things were flying around quickly were too blurry, but I didn't think so myself..
It was worth it for me, very much so. I saw it in a new Cinemark XD ("extreme digital") 3D theater and loved it. When I see it again in a week or two, it will be in 3D again.

I think you'll have fun whichever format you chose - don't sweat it.. cheers

I have a feeling that would be a storyline they may look at in the future. They subtley hinted at it in IM2 with the party scene, which was more of a reaction for a terminally ill person with lots of money.

Did you watch the same Iron Man films I did? Downey was drinking while on a presentation to the US Military, he was drinking and gambling when he was supposed to be accepting a prestigious science award. He had a drink in his hand any time he wasn't in a cave or the suit, and in 2 he got so wasted he was using the suit while drunk and endangering lives. Exactly how do you think they "replaced" Starks alcoholism? Yes at this point he is still functional but he is an alcoholic and they have addressed it even if they dont wallow in it.

One of the many great things about the movie was the pacing. There was always something interesting happening or about to happen. And then we finally got a big, long action scene with the New York stuff at the end.

And what else was great... finally, NO LOVE STORY! If nothing else, I hope studio execs realize a movie can be successful with both genders without having to shoehorn in some lame-ass romance plot.

arrr_matey1978: One of the many great things about the movie was the pacing.


Really? Jeez, i couldn't disagree more. I thought that was the biggest problem with the movie. Good pacing doesn't mean stuff is always happening, it means the movie is moving properly through its narrative arc, with each scene properly timed and with a reason for being. The Avengers just seemed to have three huge chunks - initial section where we re-introduce ourselves to each character, then the two huge setpieces. The pacing was rather sluggish, I thought.

I love hearing the fans get all crazy trying to explain something that has so many people going "wait...when did he learn to control it?"


How did he contradict himself? The Hulk won't allow Banner any harm. So if Banner gets hurt, the Hulk takes control and rages.

Spoilers!!!

In the previous scene, BW and Nick wanted to put Banner in prison/a cell. You also see that Banner doesn't have full control over himself when he is under stress, he doesn't know what he is doing. He grabs the staff and doesn't realize it. Then, add the injury, with the thought of the prison, and the Hulk is unleashed, rages out etc etc.

But in the final battle, Banner is under control and unleashed the Hulk, meaning that Banner had full control of the transformation, and could control the Hulk better. Hulk saw a bigger threat, innocents getting hurt, and thus Hulk/Banner had a common goal/enemy.

As for the "fall" scene, iirc, the first Hulk movie, when the Hulk fell off the jet plane into the ocean, he came out and turned back into Banner.

Schadenfreude ist die schoenste Freude: MBK: (no Banner, no Hulk)

Except Dr. Banner himself contradicts that in the film by stating he put a bullet in his head when he was depressed and "the green guy spit it out".

I love hearing the fans get all crazy trying to explain something that has so many people going "wait...when did he learn to control it?"


Once again since you are slow. Hulk comes out on his own in response to great pain or mortal danger, like the first appearance in the film and the allusion to the suicide. However Banner can choose to release his rage and turn at will.

Hardly crazy or convoluted

wjllope: zvoidx: Wow...it's already made $641,800,000 worldwide.

according to IMDB, the estimated budget was ~220 M$. holy smokes.

/what was step 3 again?


That was just production they probably spent another 200 million advertising. Still they are going to make a boat load of money and make up for John Carter's losses.
