    Iron Man is probably my favorite Avenger with Thor and Cap tied for second. Third place goes to Black Widow.

    Right now, Captain America is my favorite, with Nick Fury close behind. Even though he's the exact opposite of the Avengers, I love watching Loki at work. There's just something about them manipulative bastards. I'm also excited to hear how Hawkeye is going to be a scene stealer as well (Renner is one of my top 5 favorite actors of all time)

    It's going to be a bitchin movie!

    Iron Man is easily my favorite Avenger, mainly because of RDJ. Second is Fury, because it's Samuel L. Jackson. Then Black Widow, then Thor, then Cap, then Hulk.

    Because Hulk is strongest there is!!!:D 


    Failing that, his was also the first comic I'd ever read wayyyy back in the 70's ( I learned to read with Hulk comics dammitt!!) and he's remained my favorite to this very day.

    It's weird; Iron Man is my favorite, but I still kinda think Cap should be the leader.

    Cap is my favorite, and I'm happy Joss Whedon said that the film will mainly focus on him. :)

    Iron Man and Cap are tied for my favorite avenger. Both for vastly different reasons. I don't get all the love for Thor, never been a big fan I guess.

    Maybe cause the comics shifted from Iron Man to Cap. I dunno what would happen if they adapted Cival War....that would totally suck.

    That's what turns me off from the film. RDJ needs to be the star. He's the only actor from the Avengers series of movies to actually draw my interest. I find Cap boring.

    While I think RDJ is awesome as Iron Man, I don't think having the film focus on Stark is a good idea. Because a big part of Iron Man 2 was about Shield, Nick fury trying to convince Tony to join the project and related stuff, The Avengers would just be like an Iron man 3 with added main characters who are supposed to be equals in a team. Iron man 3 coming out 2013 would be a bit pointless after this movie. Don't get me wrong, he's cool, but it wouldn't work that well. Plus Cap is the one who is new to that world and has no one he knows from that time, it would be a different view of things than the others on the team, therefore the main star the writers would probably go for......I think :D

    I didn't say it was illogical. I can understand Cap being the central character, but I won't enjoy the movie that much if he's the focus.

    I think it is entirely necessary for Captain America to have the spotlight the most. He not only has to adapt to our time, but he has to lead The Avengers, and find a way to save the world. That's a lot more than any other character has to deal with.

    Thor is the one who is boring. Thor was the only one of all the Avengers movie I just couldn't get into. I actually fell asleep at one point.

    I'm the complete opposite, I fucking loved Thor. I've got a love of really bombastic sort of characters and being a Viking Space God really gives you a chance to unlease the ham and get to chewing the scenery. Thor needs to do more of that though.

    Captain America and Iron Man are both solid gold awesome though, and I hope that their three actors have been spending some time together off-set or they film all the comraderie scenes later so they're used to each other.

    So cannot wait for this movie.

    I loved Captain America, however going in I didn't think I would like it so it was a pleasant surprise. Iron Man 1 was great, the second one...not so much, the car racing scene with whiplash coming out was cool but the ending was very anticlimatic and there were some cliche and expected things in there like Tony losing control and getting drunk and hitting rock bottom. My husband sat there and drooled over Black Widow, lol.
    The only part about Thor I liked was the cameo of Hawkeye, he is my favorite Avenger.
