    Looking forward to this.

    How awesome that one summer will contain both this and Dark Knight Rises?

    And who knows, maybe the Spider-Man reboot will be good, too.

    You of course realize that I will probably die at the end of the credits as at that moment my life will be complete. (well minus a Pacers title)

    LOl...yeah. When you think about it, in a way, we've waited our whole life for something like this.

    That is one of the interesting things of the past decade of movies: We've gotten many of them that now we take for granted as being possible, when even I can recall a time where it all sounded like pure fantasy. In the early 90's, who thought movies like this would happen? Or something like Avatar? Or the Lord of the Rings?

    It's rare that I get my hopes really high for anything, but...

    This is going to be epic.

    It looks like it was an issue with creative control, more or less:

    Who's the villain? Loki? I didn't catch Thor.

    Yep, Loki is the main villain. I would suggest giving Thor a watch if you can.

    Also, here's my main concern, Cap was always the Avengers leader, but is there any doubt that RDJ as Stark/Iron Man is going to dominate all the Avengers screen time? I mean he is clearly the best actor of the group and also the most comfortable as his character. I guess it's a minor gripe, but I don't see anyway that you don't walk out of the movie seeing Iron Man as the dominant force in the Avengers. Perhaps that works better for modern times since in the original Avengers Cap was more relevant to the time period, but now there's no doubt with the way they have set up the time line that Iron Man is the most relevant hero there. I.E. relating to the current generation.

    Um.....Not sure what you mean exactly.

    Iron Man was one of the founding members along with Thor, Hank Pym, Janet Van Dyne & the Hulk.

    They did not find Caps frozen body till issue # 4.

    Tony Stark has always been a leader on the team and his money, well his Fathers money through the stark foundation has funded the team.

    Cap really didn't assume field leadership of the team until all of the originals left and he stayed to guide the new team.

    In other words in the books Iron Man has always been every bit as much front and center as Cap has and in fact they played off of this very issue in the recent civil war series as the sides lined up behind either Iron Man or Captain America.

    Yeah, Cap and Stark have pretty much been co-leaders for a while now. At least, before the whole Civil War tiff.

    I dunno why it always seemed to me that Cap was the leader, granted I'm probably not as versed as either of you. Just has seemed that way to me, plus the way third party articles always seem to portray it.

    No, your really not incorrect on that. Cap has morphed over time into not only being the supreme fighter but they have also made him be some form of tactical expert (I'd say from about the mid 70's till now) as well. Also because of his high public opinion he has become the voice of the team when dealing with the press or public usually.

    One other thing to keep in mind was that right after the Korvac series when the U.S. government took over operations of the Avengers they made Cap the leader because he was still considered an active military member (he soon rectified that) so they thought they could give him orders and in turn he would order the team to do the governments bidding.

    Sorry, had to get my nerd on today.

    Yes as you can tell I am a life long Avengers fan.

    I am excited about this, but I can't help but see a little Transformers in there, especially in the beggining of the trailer. This is a very BAD thing.

    Also Hawkeye (one of my favorite characters) just looks dumb. And they screwed up with not getting Edward Norton back.

    Well, the director said he was trying to emulate Transformers in terms of scale and effects...take from that what you will.

    It's Joss Whedon. Coming from him, it's probably a good thing; he knows the importance of story and character, and his productions usually are at least moderately intelligent.

    Okay, having watched Transformers 3 yesterday and now taking a look again at the start of this trailer, I see exactly what he's talking about.

    Fortunately, it's reminding me of Transformers in ways that were never what made those films less than good.
