Less than 27 hours from the premiere, and yes I am excited.
At last, after years of fervent anticipation, we can all commence with fully unfettered geeking. A team of Earth's Mightiest Heroes is here to save us from cinematic drudgery, led by Team Captain (okay, or writer/director) Joss Whedon, a man who knows his way around both a comic book and a witty script.
THE AVENGERS gathers superheroes from the best Marvel movies of the past few years: Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and introducing Mark Ruffalo's brand new take on The Incredible Hulk. The trailer is spectacular. The cast is phenomenal. Joss Whedon is in charge! I find it impossible to believe that this movie will be anything less than brain-meltingly transcendent.
Get excited. THE AVENGERS are coming.
