    At the end of Thor, Heimdall tells Thor that all hope of seeing Jane again is not lost. When Thor confronts Loki in Avengers, Loki says something close to "How much dark energy did the Allfather have to conjure to summon you here?" (apologies if that's not exact). So there's definitely other ways for them to travel between realms that aren't all that well explained in the movies; it presumably takes a ton of energy of some kind (like when Thor and Loki left Earth at the end of the movie using the Tesseract).

    Here's a better question:

    Why call the cube "The Tesseract" instead of "Cosmic Cube"? :confused: 

    They are virtually the same, right! :inquisiti

    It's because the name "Cosmic Cube" sounds too fantastical for an agency like SHIELD, they prefer using "Tesserract" because it's more mundane and "scientific", Cosmic Cube sounds like a religious item or something, not very professional term to use about your object of experimentation.

    Same goes as to why Simmons preferred to call the robot N.B.E 1 instead of Megatron.

    The Tesseract is what the cube is called in the Ultimate universe.

    Good point.

    However, The Other called the cube "The Tesseract".

    Which implies S.H.I.E.L.D. didn't come up with the name for the cube.

    To bring the topic of Stark tower up again, (I've never read the comics and I thought the Avengers "lived" in a Stark brand mansion like in EMH) When Pepper and Tony were arguing over the second towers name and Coulson appears and blah-blah, at the I was expecting "COULSON" or "PHIL" at the end, anyone else?

    I suppose he just decided to use the name randomly. Loki calls it The Cube at least once, though [at least I think so].

    I like that hawkeye raided the chitauri he killed for arrows. At least they have a reason why he had so many arrows.

    Forget the spoiler tags! :mad 

    Everyone in every corner of Creation will have seen this movie before the end of May!

    Making the tags pointless anyway!

    But some of them haven't seen it yet, therefore, spoiler tags are needed.

    Also, Japan isn't getting this movie until december.

    Huh. I must've missed that line. That clears a lot up.
    And it's not the end of May, so no, they're not pointless yet.

    I saw it finally! Pure awesome...well
    minus Couldsen getting offed, that really bummed me. He was even having a whole geeking moment when he met Capt and wanted to get his autograph.

    But yeah, Loki is even better in this. Lots of funny parts too:
    Like when Loki tried to use the scepter on Tony, and says: "Hmmm, normally that works." Hulk punching Thor after they took down that thing. The Loki ragdoll.

    In Thor, Loki says something like:
    "You think the bridge is the only way to get between worlds?"

    WOW! That was sofaking badass! Hey all, we didn't stay through the credits. Would anyone mind spoiler tagging what happened after creds? If anything happened that is, which I'm sure did.

    Absolutely loved this movie, it was everything I could have hoped for from the last four years of Marvel movies coming together. Hilarious, action, pacing...all perfect and the build up of the characters was just right.

    I think Coulson is dead, but he's back as a LMD (Life Model Decoy). Nick Fury or Iron Man (can't remember) mentions LMD in the movie so I think this would be a good way to bring the actor back without sacrificing the symbolism of using Coulson's death to unite the Avengers.
