DBSTalk is about more than just DBS. It is primarily about DBS... but we do have many sub-forums available to discuss other things.

Now, back to the Avengers...

True... and that's when I will see it for the first time. I swore off movie theaters years ago... so I wait for it to hit Dish Network OR a movie like this plan on buying the Blu-ray release week if I can.

I'm with you. I went to an Imax (a real one, not a LieMax) theater for the spectacle to see Avatar. But the last one I saw in a theater before that was Independence Day.

Didn't really want to start a new thread on this. Joss Whedon is confirmed for Avengers 2, along with his return to TV.

Hands down, the best comic book movie made to this day. Marvel being bought by Disney was the best thing that ever happened, as Disney is smart enough to give them the money and leave them alone.
--
They have shown that you can make comic book movies that are true to the comic and still get a casual audience. I can't wait till they get the rights back for Spiderman and Xmen.
--
WB could take a note. Their going to apparently try and do JLA, but in reverse, which is a horrific, terrible idea. Marvel has laid the blueprint for how you do a team movie. Continuity, same actors, fantastic storytelling and no character was left behind. We got to spend individual movies getting to know the characters, and not waste any time in the team movie to do so.
--
Marvel has also said they will not break continuity, even after actors leave. The story contiunity will remain, no reboots, just new actors. Thank god.

When I heard Disney bought Star Wars, I was worried until I remembered Avengers.

Lucas would still be tabbed to write any new Stars Wars movies though wouldn't he?

No. Lucas has quite publicly stated that he's done with Star Wars and that it's time for a new generation of writers to take over that franchise. Although he (Lucas) will still be a creative consultant, Kathleen Kennedy will be in charge of the franchise.

Hrm, never heard of her. Has she done anything that might be more well known? The problem is, i thinka t this point, it's going to be hard to get people to buy into a new Star Wars dogma. Though, I do understand both Ford and Fisher have said they would gladly be in a new movie, which could be helpful in a transition and woudl work, as it would take place after the last of the original ones.

Kathleen Kennedy has been a major producer for quite some time, working closely with her husband Frank Marshall and Steven Spielberg. She ran Amblin for Spielberg, then her own company, now for Lucas.

Ah, okay, seems in good hands then! Thanks! *ponder* Wasn't Amblin the company that did Spielburg's early movies? Like ET, etc, before he started Dreamworks (Well, helped start it)

We saw this today, in one word, awesome. Action and also at times hilarious. It is definitely not needed to see it in 3D. I did not.

For those that haven't seen some of the previous films, I would at least see the Iron Man films and Thor before seeing this one.


I can agree completely with your entire post.

I'd put Captain America in there as well. The "Hulk" movies are unnecessary, though.
