Well I had to institute a tumblr blackout starting Friday night after too much spoilerish material was being posted on the Avengers. NO SPOILERS here but I will say I think the movie is perfect. Maybe it won’t get any Oscars, Golden Globes, or SAG awards but I think within the comic community it can contend for picture of the year. I do think it is the best superhero movie ever…so far anyway. It’ll be interesting to see how Batman and Spider-Man do, although both of those look equally awesome.
As far as Agent Coulson I think he’s such a fan favorite because in a lot of ways he’s just like us. He’s a comic fanboy. He believes in superheros. He’s one of us you know? You’d expect him to have a huge collection, attending cons, and hanging out in shops every Wednesday.
I also liked how Nick Fury closely reflected his comic book persona. He wasn’t a totally honest leader. This Nick had secrets and made tough decisions despite them maybe upsetting a few people. Like Nick in the comics he did what was necessary to get the job done even if it meant deception or dishonesty. Sure he’s a straight shooter, but he also seems like he knows a lot more than what he lets on to.
Also one of my favorite parts of the movie was obviously Hulk smashing things. A little mindless rage and destruction can be awesome. I also loved how they handled Hawkeye and his entire character. The trick arrows and quiver tech was really dope.
In sports news the Nats took the series from Philadelphia. I would have liked to see them win all 3 games, but 2 out of 3 ain’t bad. If you’re a baseball fan you should be checking out the games. Bryce Harper is going to be a special player.
