    Watched Ultimate Avengers 2. Was very happy with this one. Lot's of action, lot's of character interaction, and all that. If you didn't like the first, I doubt you'll like this one, so you're probably best steering clear.

    As for screencap/spoilery stuffs:

    Tony's armor get's f'ed up, so, lets take a look at what armor to pick from our "Armory":

    Well, Guess we'll go with the War Machine Armor:

    Ant-man makes an appearance...sorta:

    A fallen Avenger, and his memorial service:

    All in all, I really liked this one. Not sure if it was up to par with the first, but it was damn good. If you liked the first one, go grab this.

    I loved this one... a little better than the first, honestly... maybe because it was an original story arc and not a some-what rehash of the Ultimates.

    though, in that last pic, it looks like Tony's trying for a two-fer. Go pompous rich boy!

    Though, I wonder who will fill in the hole in the team now that Giant Man is getting his ass eatten by worms, maggots, and the stick he's had up there all his life.

    Pretty good stuff. Are they doing more with Ultimate Avengers, or moving onto other franchises?...

    Argh! I know that style. Dammit.

    Which studio did the animation for Ultimate Avengers? I haven't gotten around to seeing either yet, but now it's bugging me that I can't place who did the art. >.<

    Next up (from what Marvel last said) is an Iron Man animated, then Ultimate Avengers 3.

    I picked it up today and just watched it. I thought they did a great job. I'm still not a fan of the way the animation is colored, but I over-look it for the fun of the movie. The previews for Iron Man and Dr. Strange were coo. I'm really looking forward to the Dr. Strange movie.

    I really enjoyed the movie. just got it today after the runaround of no one having it.

    I liked it a lot better than the first. I think because it was an original story. The first was just a pale retelling of the first volume of Avengers but put to a tamer audience. This one was completely new. I loved it.

    Now I just need a great screencap of War machine.

    I enjoyed this one and I enjoyed the first one, neither were stories that I would have done, but they were fun.

    I really wish they would have stuck to the original story for the first movie. If you haven't read that first arc, go to your fav comic store and pony up the thirty bucks to read it. It has great re-readability.

    My big beef was Cap's voice, its not nearly authoritative enough. When I read Ultimates, the voice from the movie is not the one I hear.

    My other beef from the second movie is that there was a PERFECT scene for Cap to give the ol', "GIVE UP? YOU THINK THIS LETTER ON MY HEAD STANDS FOR FRANCE?" But they pussed out and didn't put it in. oh well, we live in a pc world.

    So, we'll never see an Ultimate Avengers wife beating scene?

    Aw.. :( 

    Anyway, I didn't enjoy it much, and no, this time it's not because it didn't follow the comics. The writing just felt sloppy and uninspired to me....I guess it's because I'm comparing it to something more nuanced and refined like JLU.

    Seriously, they need to get someone better to write the screenplay for these movies.

    I DID like the animation, though, which makes me sort of a minority I guess. Hated Ultimate Avengers Black Panther's costume, though...talk about uninspired, ESPECIALLY considering that he's royalty. So many other options they could have gone with.. :-/

    Let's hope they give him a better costume in the upcomming Ultimate Black Panther mini

    EDIT:Here's some art from Joe Mad in relation to U3 http://www.ultimatecentral.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4992&page=4 BP costume is rather plain and I dont get why hes wearing such shiny tights when everyone else is wearing kevlar or leather.

    Finally got around to seeing the movie yesterday. Here's the review I wrote for the thing:

    Overall, though, it was good, just kinda...plain. Still thought it was better than the first installment, though.

    Some of those were pretty lame. Like all the farting ones.


    Some of the other ones, though, REALLY should have made the final cut, including, as the station is being destroyed, "Thanks for the heads up, jerk!" Really, really funny moments.
