In no particular order:
-JOSS WHEDON. :DD
-JOSS WHEDON. DD:<
-Speaking of Joss Whedon, I love how even though he's got this big blockbuster movie full of megastars and he probably didn't have a lot of control over the casting, he still managed to find bit parts for Ashley Johnson and Enver Gjokaj. I can just see him, like, "GUYS, GUYS, CHECK IT OUT, I GOT HIRED TO DO THIS TOTALLY AWESOME BLOCKBUSTER COMIC BOOK MOVIE, HEY, HEY, WE'RE BROS, DO YOU WANNA BE IN MY AWESOME BLOCKBUSTER COMIC BOOK MOVIE? :DD" As is typical of my life, I was the only person in the theater flipping out when Enver Gjokaj showed up on the screen as like, Random Cop #2. NO ONE UNDERSTANDS ME. T_T /forever alone
-The rest of the audience was totally with me on, like, everything else. HULK VS. LOKI OH MY FUCKING GOD, THE SCREAMING LAUGHTER AND THE CHEERING AND CLAPPING AND HAVE I MENTIONED THE LAUGHTER, WHOLE THEATER IN HYSTERICS, I AM GOING TO HAVE TO REWATCH JUST FOR THAT SCENE BECAUSE WE WERE ALL LAUGHING SO HARD I MISSED THAT LAST LINE.
-CAN WE TALK ABOUT THE COMEDIC TIMING IN THIS MOVIE IN GENERAL, OMG.
-ALSO THE GRATUITOUS BATTLING. Creative team was like, how many different combinations of Avenger vs. Avenger, Avenger vs. Loki, and Avenger vs. Scary Alien can we fit into this movie? HOW ABOUT ALL OF THEM.
-I have to admit this movie was occasionally kind of predictable, but always only in the very best way, like, it's so awesome you're just happy you were right.
-NAT AND CLINT. ♥
-BRUCE AND TONY. ♥
-"I GOT THAT REFERENCE! :DD" OH STEVE YOU POOR THING YOU ARE SO ADORABLE OMG.
-SPEAKING OF ADORABLE, PHIL COULSON'S GIDDY FANBOYING.
-ALSO "HIS NAME WAS PHIL" AA;SGJKHFALKHSFLA;KSHGSFS.
-THOR AND LOKI JUST MAKE OUT ALREADY FOR FUCK'S SAKE, SERIOUSLY.
-Lol Bruce Banner, they just had to give him a purple shirt. XD
...SO WHEN DO WE GET TO HAVE THE SEQUEL?!
Can I also mention, the previews: new trailers for The Dark Knight Rises, Prometheus, and Brave, all movies I am SUPER FUCKING EXCITED ABOUT, and also The Amazing Spider-Man, which I am... tentatively excited about? They're doing a really unusual and interesting interpretation of the canon with this one... but I have to say, the scene where the guy pulls a knife on Spidey, AA;SLHGKALSFAKJSKAHFJSFLS REASON ENOUGH TO SEE THE MOVIE, THAT RIGHT THERE IS THE SPIDEY I KNOW AND LOVE. ♥
