OK. Deep breath. If you’ve read virtually anything on this blog, the fact that we’re all huge Joss Whedon fans here will come as no surprise to you. I’m also going to go out on a limb and suggest that –film fan you obviously are – you’ve already seen the latest trailer for THE tentpole release of the summer The Avengers. If you haven’t,
Back? Good. HOW GOD-FUCKING AWESOME WAS THAT, HUH? OK, chill, Jim,
chill. But I mean, come on! Has anything ever been that exciting? Have you ever wanted to see a film so badly that it made you want to punch someone’s mum in the face? First we get the grandeur of the first proper trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, then the what-the-fuh- of the Cabin In The Woods and now this. What a year to be into movies…
OK, OK. It has become quite clear to me that I am not gonna be able to be particularly insightful or even coherent on this one. All you need to know is that it’s massive, it’s spectacular, it’s fast, funny and cool and all those things we hoped it would be. Lives will be changed after this movie; bald head and eye patch will be the look of the year amongst the fashionistas, Thor will become the most common name for new born baby boys and all electronic devices that speak will be
programmed to sound like Paul Bettany a la Iron Man.
The world is about to change.
Are you ready?
