    This is exactly how I feel. Nothing will top Iron Man for me, such a brilliant movie. Even though I really do enjoy all the others, it's just so hard to top.

    With that said, I really can't wait until this movie. I have been trying to hold back from reading too much about it because I want to be surprised by everything. But that's becoming harder and harder each day.

    As awesome as the trailers have looked, I'll be going into The Avengers with low expectations, but an open mind. So here's hoping they can actually pull it off well.

    That's a good idea. I did the same thing with Chronicle and came out of the movie very satisfied.

    At least if the movie isn't very good it will have pretty visuals to look at. :p

    Yeah, I don't have the highest expectations for this. Something about it just doesn't seem good.

    I think TASM will be better, but this could turn out alright. As soon as they announced the director most people seemed to think '' It will be PERFECT!!''. Now it seems to be mostly Special effects fight scenes with Iron man and Hulk and not all the characters will get proper treatment, Hawkeye seems almost forgotten half the time.

    At Toy Fair 2012, they had an Avengers figure for Black Widow.

    That's what threw me off. I thought he was saying that The Avengers version of her they just showed was canceled.

    I have one question:
    What is the budget of this movie? Early reports said it was like 150 million dollars and that obviously turned out to be false. Later reports said it was around 260 million dollars and now I'm hearing numbers like 300 million.

    Don't know exact budget but I'm pretty sure it's higher than the usual solo Marvel hero movie.

    I don't think the army are Skrulls. I think they're Hydra, because Red Skull is confirmed as a villain in the movie.

    To be fair, of course that's what they're going to show in the trailer. Their not going to show the slow paced character development moments.

    Now, I know that doesn't mean that everyone will get great character development in the film. But it seems silly to assume that its going to be either way just from the trailer.

    Where did you see that? I've been reading most articles written about the movie and I haven't seen Red Skull mentioned anywhere.

    Red Skull won't be in the movie. The only way he could be in the movie and be kept secret is if all his scenes were shot in doors and if Hugo Weaving took a little time off to shoot a couple scenes. In other words, if he were in the movie, we would probably know for sure by now.
