The Vintage Avengers!

Written by: Christopher Lee

The Avengers in theaters May 4th, 2012

I know, we’re all well aware that the Avengers comes out in a couple weeks, with some theaters doing a full “Avengers Day” package showing of all the films leading up to it. I’d kind of like at least one theater showing all the vintage live action films. Maybe they could, and maybe it could lead up to this.

Wow…just…wow. This is brilliant and I *kinda* wish it were real. I would have loved to see this as a kid!! Although I know it’s a bit obscure even for those in my age range, I LOVE the idea of Paul Lynde as “Loki” hahaha! And Kudos go to the creators of this for the very witty “Hawkeye” dual reference.

(FYI, I am well aware that some of the clips here are from the 80’s, but hey, I didn’t make the video!! Regardless, it still feels right with that date. I just feel this needs saying. I know how finicky “we” can be.)

The Avengers!! Exciting Movie. "Meh" Poster.

 

AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!! TONY, PUT YOUR DAMNED HELMET ON!! YOU’RE GONNA GET HURT!!! YOU TOO CAP! YOU WERE IN THE WAR!!! YOU SHOULD KNOW BETTER!

Marvel release this new “Avengers” poster. Whereas I’m VERY excited to see this movie, and it does look like it’s going to be a wild ride, I just can’t stand the posters they’ve released. It all looks too cartoony, photoshopped, hokey, ect.

Seriously, the Iron Man movies have made enough money and the character’s marketing itself spans a wide enough scope that the character in full suit is recognizable. I don’t need to see RDJ’s mug in this poster. It ruins the whole thing for me. I mean, it’s not going to stop me from throwing down my, what is it now $15 for a movie? But, with all the amazing artists marvel has under their belt, can’t we just get one, really amazing poster for this film? Is that too much to ask?
