The Avengers was EXCELLENT! Great characterization, witty dialogue, incredible action, just a great popcorn movie. Hopefully the whole cast can return for the sequel. It might be hard to cast all those good actors at the same time in a few years from now.
For some reason I thought The Avengers would have no chance against The Hunger Games but now it just might be the top grossing movie for 2012.
I guess they could be saved for the 2nd movie but if they are introducing Wasp (and pym) , it's better than he's giant-man or goliath than ant-man.
However , too many characters introduced just makes the movie overbloated. It's already a fine juggling act trying to balance all these heavyweight actors/heroes already , if they introduce more heroes to the avengers , it might be tough to actually give everyone a share of the spotlight.

Well done, with good fight scenes and interesting characters. It's worth going to, but it won't be a timeless classic as Superman I with Christopher Reeve.
My favorite Superhero movie. I loved it and all my friends, too. Hulk was the best! Just pure action fun, what i expected from an Avengers movie.
The avengers lacked that kind of score , the Silvestri score was pretty average and certainly doesn't have that kind of sweeping feel like the superman theme.
Not to mention , the current era is the era of superhero movies , it's kind of hard to stand out in a crowd when there's half a dozen superhero movies being made each year.
I do think the actual closing of the portal was a bit haphazard. If Natasha could have figured out how to close the portal on her own, or how to unbrainwash the scientist via mental trickery, I think it would have been stronger.
The real Whedonisms I saw weren't in the "red on my ledger" thing, but in how Natasha was introduced. "Do you really think I'm pretty?" and then the interlude with Coulson being put on hold. That whole deconstruction of the damsel-in-distress with quips thrown in felt very Joss. But that specific deconstruction is something that's done a lot with Natasha's comics, so it felt alright, to me.
The credits scene deadset had me out of my chair. And that was just the END of the film!
You are an apocalypse dreaming of butterflies
we are a patchwork of miracles.
Loved the movie. Great characters, loved the story and especially the humor. Thor and Hulk were on my favorites moments of the entire movie.
The movie was pretty friggin' perfect. A lot of scenes reminded me of panel-work in comic books, and the dialogue was spot on for every character.
The first half is only boring if you dont like watching a movie for its plot.
Loved it, I had the biggest smile on my face throughout the movie.
