Hubby and I were fortunate enough to attend a screening of Marvel’s The Avengers last week. I could not have been more excited about not only watching the film, but watching it before the general public. Although I haven’t seen any of the prior films featuring Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Thor (I know, I’ve apparently been living under a rock), my inner geek was thrilled to see the Marvel superheroes together on the big screen, and in 3D!
The film revolves around how Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, along with Nick Fury and Maria Hill from S.H.I.E.L.D., battle Loki, the Norse God. Loki, who enters Earth through a space portal opened by the mysterious energy source Tesseract, brings with him a bunch of aliens, and they wreck havoc in Manhattan. There’s lots of cool stuff in between, but I don’t want to reveal any spoilers. What I can say is that the movie is awesome! It’s funny, action-packed, and keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Here’s one of my favorite scenes, Head Count:
I’m really glad I got to see the movie with hubby before we took the boys so we could pre-screen it and make sure it was appropriate for them. It is PG-13 due to the violence and action scenes, but they know it’s a movie and it’s pretend. They are counting down the days until May 4th so we can all go see it together. I just know they are going to love it, and so will anyone who likes superheroes, action movies, and good triumphing over evil (yeah, pretty much everybody). Ah, one more thing: don’t forget to stick around after the credits start rolling, you’ll thank me later.
Disclosure: Disney Pictures graciously allowed me and hubby to attend a screening of Marvel’s The Avengers. The opinion that the Avengers, and the movie, rock is my own.
