    Watched the movie yesterday. Very entertaining blockbuster, dumb as brick pretty much all the time
    I would say, that the Transformers movies are like this, but Avengers still has some kind of soul and brain.

    They couldn't reference Spider-Man. Marvel Studios doesn't own the rights.

    Avengers is dumb as bricks because it's just about people beating the fuck out of each other, but it manages to have likable characters and actual high stakes thanks to good writing that allows people to identify and like the characters. It's a dumb movie but it does what it has to do well.

    Transformers, otherwise, didn't really care much about making the characters likable. They are giant robots and the movie shows them off as such - if you didn't watch the series before (which I didn't) and liked the characters through the series, you're not going to start liking them through the movies because the writing doesn't allow you to.

    Is Deadpool owned by Sony due to X-men? If not I want him to appear in Avengers 2 if only to see him and    Thanos duke it out over Death if she is introduced into the films    quickly before moving on with the plot and having no mention of him again.
    Does anyone here have a link to the Deadpool movie script?

    I really don't want the Fantastic 4 to have anything to do with the Avengers. I know that they are important in the comics, but I always found them so boring. Not to mention, it'd have yet another movie explaining the origins of superheroes, we've had enough of these

    Bit more speculation on the After credits scene and Avengers 2. Put in Spoilers because despite being purely speculation and comic book facts, some still haven't seen the film and after credits scene.
       As Mentioned in the thread Thanos was in love with death, hence the smile on the "To court death" line.

    As Thanos is really the mastermind behind the Chitauri, it means it was HIM who was bargaining an army in return for the cosmic cube (Called the Tesseract in the films). In the comics Thanos actually gets his hands on the cube and uses it to impress Death. He then uses The Cube to defeat The Avengers and become part of everything thus becoming very powerful. Believing the cube to be depleted of energy he then discards it. However Captain Marvel (Mar-vell, whatever) drains the power from Thanos, dying as he does so, and then shatters the cube.

    So it's possible the cube will play a strong part in Avengers 2. It's currently in Asgard where many people believe Red Skull to be hiding. So the cube could possible appear in both Thor 2 and Captain America 2 (If they use Red Skull, specially as Red Skull often uses the cube).  
      

    The Fantastic 4 reboot still hasn't come, and nothing has been heard of it since it was announced and Marvel are planning to announce TWO new films that have so far not been announced, to become part of it's cinematic universe. It's entirely possible that Fantastic 4 will fall back into the hands of Marvel if it's not used soon. It may already have done, nobody would know unless Marvel said. So one of those films could be Fantastic 4, though it is unlikely. For now.

    How is this relevant to Avengers?    The cinematic universe borrows heavily from The Ultimate Universe. The Chitauri are essentially The Ultimate Skrulls. One ultimate storyline is Thanos cosmically controls Mr Fantastic to build a new cosmic cube. The Thing even worked with Captain America in one mainstream story line to retrieve The Cube. Doctor Doom uses a time machine to retrieve the cube from the ocean himself after Red Skull and Captain America lose it. The point is The Fantastic 4 are usually a part of the cubes story and it is entirely likely if they fall back into Marvel hands they would play an important role with the Tesseract. So don't expect Avengers to be the last we see of that little cube, it could be a main part of the sequel and even a third film.   
    have the rights reverted from fox to marvel? last i checked they still owned F4

    People are being butthurt about everything. They didn't even understand the context of the joke.

    It's only a matter of time before people start bitching about that one joke    when Captain America gives a few bucks to Fury    because it's kinda racist.

    Er no it's rather well known that in the thirties even up to early fifties black people were treated like shit and could barely afford any other job than musician, server or underpaid worker.

    Also is it just me or are Fury and that other tall guardian guy in Thor the two only black persons of the entire Marvel cinematic universe ?

    At the end part of the film after seeing it a second time, my friend told when he saw the film before when
       Thanos    showed up someone yelled "Oh man its Hellboy!". Laughed my ass off.

    Also in regard to Iron Man 3, the film will focus loosely on the storyline of Extremis and will involve a terrorist group known as the Mandarin.

    Think back to the beginning of the film where Fury is with Cap in the gym.

    Nick Fury: There's a lot we have to bring you up to speed on if you're in. The world has gotten even stranger than you already know

    Steve Rogers: At this point, I doubt anything will surprise me

    Nick Fury: 10 bucks says you're wrong

    his true motives throughout wasn't anything like he said originally, that's called lying or being delusional

    really he just wanted to be king of something, since he had been denied his "rightful" throne at Asgard, and wanted earth to suffer under his rule in an attempt to spite Thor

    he wasn't ever about "freeing the world from freedom" that was just the phrase he couched it in

    What the fuck, why did I just read Fury's lines in Keith David's voice. I know hes played by SLJ, but for some reason Keith David said them in my head.

    Not really. If he didn't catch or didn't make the connection between the "bet you 10 bucks" line then him going to the next logical conclusion doesn't make him fucked up.

    Honest mistake.

    They coulda used his real comic book first name, which is robert.

    Unless robert is even gayer than bruce.

    Also, isn't the original Tv Series actor doing Hulk's voice whenever he's transformed in the Original Version of the movie ?

    They should have put him as the janitor in that one scene with Banner instead, in my opinion.

    Actually, Robert Bruce Banner was a mistake, because Stan lee wanted him as Bob, but they made him bruce in the original comic, he wrote it as bob in the second, so he retconned his name as robert bruce banner.

    Lots of F4 hate here.

    I think they're fun. The Movie was terrible. But the family unit is special. Also The Thing is such a tragic character it's kinda moving when he always turns out to be the most human character in the whole of Marvel. During the civil war he called bullshit on the whole thing and went to France while Reed became a war driven scientist nut. I think he even cloned Thor for some bat shit stupid reason.
    Reed is boring.
    Sue is just 'the wife'
    and Johnny is a cock.

    But Dr Doom and Thing are great Marvel characters and deserve to be in The Avengers. Nobody makes a villain party like a Dr Doom Villain Party.

    I honestly can't stop fucking laughing. I'll be watching The Avengers now thinking Cap is ignorantly racist. And that makes him ten times funnier.
