    Anybody else getting fatigued? All the promo and trailers. Just like the 20 second tease for the upcoming Batman vs. Superman minute tease...Just release the fucking things! lol

    I fell asleep on Avengers 1. It took a while to get into. Other than Hulk, eh.

    When the first Avengers came out I was so hyped I read all the spoilers and even watched a pirated version of the movie about 3-4 days before it was released in North America.

    For this one I haven't really gotten excited, but I will still see it on opening weekend, mainly to see the Star Wars trailer on the big screen.

    It's already getting trash reviews.

    http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/avengers-a...gly-inconsequential-story-say-critics-1497736

    Avengers Age of Ultron is a massive disappointment with 'shockingly inconsequential' story, say critics

    As expected, the film is being praised for its grand action sequences and mind-blowing special effects, critics seem to be disappointed with the story and content of the film

    ...Scott Mendelson, in his Forbes review, calls the film "a Galactus-sized disappointment."

    http://www.irishtimes.com/culture/f...ltron-review-fighting-super-fatigue-1.2186249

    Avengers: Age of Ultron review – fighting super-fatigue

    No doubt the latest Avengers romp – sequel to the third most successful movie of all time – will drag in huge coin and win many friends, but, for this viewer, the sound of tiny Fonzies jumping distant sharks marred the enjoyment.

    Funny, I haven't heard much at all about The Avengers 2. Will Uma Thurman and Ralph Finnes reprise their roles as Emma Peel and John Steed?

    Fuck the Avengers. The first one was very good, not great. But how the hell do you show Thanos at the end of the credits and then go to a different storyline for the second? Thanos is an unbelievable storyline, my favorite along with Onslaught, and now they completely gloss over it.

    Although Cap 2 was better than Cap 1, this is typical with the Marvel movies. The trend is, make a very good first film for a character or faction to build an audience. Then when it comes time for the sequel, mail it in with an uninspired, CGI-filled shit show...

    To all those tired of Avengers hype:Tough balls. I STILL have to sit through "Frozen" quotes/mentions/songs/references, etc. And I don't even know what the fuck it is, other than a kids' movie.

    Thanos will make an appearance there somewhere. They didn't fire the Buffy the Vampire slayer guy and hire Josh Brolin for nothing. And he was mentioned in Guardians of the Galaxy.

    Thanos is the end game not a sequel villain. The two part Infinity Wars movies will be all him.

    Renner and Evans already had to apologize for joking Black Widow gets around. (Hawkeye, Cap etc). :coffee:

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/...ow-slut-scarlett-johansson-avengers/26235729/

    ..."Yesterday we were asked about the rumors that Black Widow wanted to be in a relationship with both Hawkeye and Captain America. We answered in a juvenile and offensive way that rightfully angered some fans. I regret it and sincerely apologize."

    Susan Patricola, a rep for Jeremy Renner, also sent this statement to USA TODAY:

    "I am sorry that this tasteless joke about a fictional character offended anyone. It was not meant to be serious in any way. Just poking fun during an exhausting and tedious press tour."
