We live in amazing times. With all of the troubles Marvel had bringing their characters to the big (and small) screen over the years I never thought there would come a time when I'd be able to sit down in a theater and watch Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and finally the Avengers in something other than an animated form.

I read comments on other sites and a lot of people were hammering the Marvel movies. I can't say I was shocked, but maybe a little surprised. Have we gotten that spoiled that we've forgotten how blessed we are to finally see the characters we grew up with in movies? I'm 45, so I was around to see Superman when it first hit theaters back in the late 70s. After the success of that movie there was so much pre-internet buzz in trade magazines about what characters would be next. Batman got us even more excited in the late 80s. I even remember when James Cameron was looking at making Spider-Man in the mid-90s. Sure, there have been some less-than-stellar films (especially those made by other studios), but I still find them entertaining and still get excited to see them in the theater.

I'll pass.  It's a good idea, but I can't sit through that many movies in a row.  Besides, I don't want to watch it in 3D.  It's a waste of money, especially when the movie wasn't shot with 3D in mind to begin with.

I wish there was a I-Max near where I live. There was supposed to be one built 3 years ago in Sparks NV but it keeps getting delayed still! Its really pissing me off!!!

Yeah wessmith people are jaded. Things that years ago would've blown people's minds are now passe. I look at John Carter as the latest example but not the only by any means. I would've died of joy as a kid to see something like that and not just for the f/x but the genre. Nevermind the thought of an Avengers film, that wasn't even given a thought as a possibility

I for one go to see almost every comic book related movie that gets released, even if I hear it's awful.  Just want to support the genre.  I even went to go see Dylan Dog and Green Lantern last year, even though I wasn't expecting much (and got even less).

I remember picking up my monthy issue of Wizard back in the day, and they always had a comic movie section.  There would be about half a page of rumors that never went anywhere, and all the rest of it consisted of- Wouldn't it be cool if... fantasy casting calls, etc.  The notion that there would ever be big budget movies based on comic book characters who weren't Superman or Batman was pure fantasy.  I remember renting Roger Corman's Carnosaur just so I could see the Fantastic Four trailer that was on the tape.  We were so desperate for a Marvel movie that we convinced ourselves that it might actually be good.  They publicized the Generation X TV movie in Wizard the same way The Dark Knight was covered.  It was a huge deal back then.

 I challenge anyone to actually watch all of these. The most I've ever theater hopped in one day was 4 movies and I had the biggest headache afterwards.

The one thing giving me pause is that by the time The Avengers airs that's going to be one funky theater

Wiseguy & Wessmith, I'm in total agreement with you. For comic book/genre fans this is truly a magical time and I think some fans just don't realize it.

ppl will go late just to see the AVENGER movie , no one can sit though 4 films in a theater , think about sitting with a bunch of geeks wearing outfits next to you  for 8 hours
