The Avengers: the hype is justified

Typically, I do not like to see a movie when it first comes out. I just don’t like to be in a crowded theater. So I’ve avoided watching The Avengers. Until today.

It’s pretty good, as it turns out. All the hype is justified. As The Avengers steadily marches through the box office record book, it seems inevitable that it will soon top The Dark Knight in gross box office receipts. But something tells me that Dark Knight Rises will do just that and bring the title of best grossing comic book movie back to Batman’s mantle.

Now, a Pixar mashup would kick serious ass. That would be a movie I would flock to see. The picture above is from Cartoon Brew.
