But I'd echo the skip the 3D part. I saw the 2D both times and can't see it adding much.

If I had to rank the films so far, I'd probably:

Iron Man
Iron Man 2
Captain America
The Incredible Hulk
THOR


Though I haven't seen Hulk since 2008, and I only caught it and Capt. America once. Maybe I would switch the two if I saw them again. Iron Man 2 was pretty good, but felt needlessly long and cluttered. I think it suffered the worst from Avenger-tie-in-itus. THOR I only really liked the middle act; the Asgard stuff didn't impress.

So now where would you say Avengers falls by comparison?

Personally I would rank them from top to bottom as -

The Avengers
Captain America: The First Avenger
Iron Man
The Incredible Hulk
Iron Man 2
Thor

But I'm a sucker for the 40s retro feel on Cap although I don't like the bookends and it doesn't have the best script.

Oh, yes, Avengers tops all of the previous films out nicely. It is definitely the culmination, and it shows.

Agreed.

The whole Marvel Cinematic Universe and The Avengers Universe is not at all without it's problems and neither do the films but it would have been impossible for The Avengers to work without those five precursor films existing.

On that score, though I've criticised the overall 'production line' feel it's starting to resemble I have to tip my hat to the people who sat down and planned this out from Iron Man up to this point. And it has more than paid off for them.

They just better make sure they lock in Whedon for at least The Avengers 2 now.

Avengers:
Ironman
Ironman 2
Hulk (Incredible)
Thor
(Captain America)

Captain America was extremely underwhelming. I didn't completely agree with the casting of the Evans (especially as he was Human Torch)

Thor was okay. The casting was perfect but the story was still a bit underwhelming...it felt much like Green Lantern Movie

Hulk was alright but the CGI of the Hulk was cartoonish. (Avengers does a much MUCH better job of making him look like a real person and like the actor whose playing him.)

Ironman two was silly but overall a good film.
Ironman was excellent. I didn't think it could be topped.
Avengers was near flawless.

'Avengers' Sequel Is Officially On

Disney CEO Bob Iger made the announcement Tuesday, stating during a conference call that a second installment of the men-in-tights epic is in the works.

Hell YES for Avengers sequel.
I agree....they'd better have Whedon on it.

Yep, that was probably the worst kept secret of the weekend. But I hope they lock down Whedon for it.

Im not a fan of 3D. I think it's a gimmick to make more money. But who doesn't right?

The Avengers in 3D actually was really fun. The 3D works in this film. Especially during the last stand in New York. If you're willing to go once more, try 3D. You already like the movie, so there's nothing to lose...except $15 for the ticket

p.s
A year and a half since my last post...sorry, i've been frolicking in the enchanted forrest with wood elves all this time.
