Major spoiler!!
[Show spoiler]We were right, it seems. The aliens are Skrulls. They're just called by their Utimate universe name in the film, hence the "they're not Skrulls" responses in interviews.


Don't click it. You know you don't want to.

Reading those tweets again you can't take yourself seriously if you reaction to the film was "My body is still recovering from non-stop geeking out". Seriously? Overreact much?


EDIT: I see Variety liked it. I suppose it's hard to properly sum it up in 140 characters or less.

Acting like a blogger is less than a critic is kinda ridiculous, in my opinion at least. They do the same things critics do, go to the same events, and do all the same things. They're still critics, more aimed at us then them. I think it's more that you don't want them Geeking out, which isn't really fair. They're allowed to geek out too. and I don't find them overreacting. They loved the movie. They're geeks. We haven't had anything like this before. Nothing wrong with that at all. but hey, that's my opinion.

Do not click or read anything if you fear spoiler. Not that I've encounter any (yet). But I'm sure it'll float around.

Anybody with a computer can be a blogger. It's like the difference between a student filmmaker and a professional, do they do the same thing? Yes, but one has real training and experience. Sure there are some great student filmakers out there just as there are great bloggers. But one does not equal the other. I don't expect a trained critic to say "I'm geeking out". But I'm not trying to take anything away from the fans, they are more than welcome to their geeking, it's just there is a difference to me between the two.

I value the opinions of bloggers and fellow fans far more than critics. Most critics are jaded snobs who don't know how to just enjoy a film and hate anything popular.

In this day and age, professional film critics are obsolete. I'd love to see the whole profession die. (The jobs, not the people )

Okay, send the crow my way. I'm in a state of shock right now.

On another forum, one member who's opinion on this genre is pretty much identical to mine just weighed in on the film after the premiere and like me, was supremely skeptical about the film and the type of films Marvel Studios' has made.

To put it simple, this person says that it's Marvel Studios' first real cinematic experience. The best they've done by far.

He ranked it tied for second with X2 (which is a film that people tend to forget in this genre) and only behind the Dark Knight, which is my number one.

He says it's not cheesy or a comedy, that surprisingly, Widow is our way into the world and that Whedon has found a great way to justify her being a part of the film.

Again, this person is speechless on how much he loved the film. This person felt that this film felt like a significant shift in terms of how Marvel/Disney will go forward from now on....says that Whedon has figured out a way to take chances in the film, while also being sort of predictable when you sit back and think about what has led up to it.

Again, I'm stunned. I was waiting for this reaction and but I wasn't prepared for this reaction.

You're telling me!

I just knew, while this person was always skeptical and critical of Marvel Studios, that this person would, at least, be fair about it because they, while admitting to being a fanboy, is more interested in this genre in terms of how these movies work as films FIRST and how they work for fanboys a DISTANCE SECOND.

And, I'm the same way, because these movies are my way into the characters and the world because I didn't grow up with this stuff. I have a limited knowledge of all the characters but I want to know how they work as films first...

....so, it was a pleasant surprise to read this person's reaction.

oh, im the same way - prior to the previous films, I've been familiar with the characters, but I dont think I've ever read a single comic with them unless it was a guest appearance. (When I was into comics, I was an X-Men guy)

See, I didn't get that far. Besides the obvious ones (Batman, Superman, and Spider-Man based on cartoons as a kid), I knew nothing.

My entry way into this whole thing was the X-Men cartoon in the 90's. After that, Batman the animated series.

It wasn't until the genre popped off in the cinema that I started to really pay attention. I didn't buy my first comic until V for Vendetta was about to hit the screen. Soon after, I was trying to understand the buzz on Iron Man when someone suggested that I read Extremis.

After that, it was reading Watchmen before seeing Watchmen and slightly prior to Nolan's Begins, I read Batman Year One and figured out that the Long Halloween and Dark Victory were sort of a trilogy so I read those.

And since then, I've only read three more; Superman Earth One, Superman Birthright, and Origins.

Because of the nature of medium, I won't continue to read them because I'm not big on open ended, but if it's something like a self-contained story like the Earth One series, I might give it a peek now.

I like definitive endings and comics don't give those with any real meaning.

This is why I'm excited for Dark Knight Rises and I was hoping, while still knowing that they're going to make more, that Avengers was a definite ending. Maybe by Avengers 3, it'll have a definite ending.
