– to us, just when we needed ‘em most. ‘Scuse me, Cap. I seem to have something in my eye…
“You guys always bring me the very best violence!”
I loved that tableau at the end. We have a demi-god, an all but indestructable mutant, a genetically enhanced super soldier and a heavily armored scientific genius equipped with state-of-the-art weaponry. Oh, and some anorexic chick with a handgun. Those guys are really lying down on the job if they need Scarlet Johannsen to tip the balance in their favor.
I’d let Scarlett tip my balance any time.
Let’s not forget the strong dude, the archer(?!), and the cyclops. Frankly, Scarlett’s probably got a better reason to be there than they do – some of their villains are going to be human, after all, and there’s not many of those who can resist her.
Anyone who calls Scarlett Johansson anorexic needs their eyes checked.
Well, I do think she looked REALLY under-armed there by comparison.
But I can hardly wait!
I hear “Avengers” I think Emma Peel. I am a fossil.
Hell, Frank — I hear “chair” or “rainy” or most any damn thing, and there’s a good chance I think Emma Peel.
My first thought, too…
No man thinking of Emma Peel has much in common with a cold dead rock.
– Macnee once described Diana Rigg as “so young and beautiful with her red hair”. Of course, she looked raven-haired on the black and white television screen. Here, Scarlett may be dyed henna-haired, but glad she’s on the Team.
Is it just me, or am I the only one geeking out about Joss Whedon has managed to distill this movie to the Stan Lee original concept of super-hero group as dysfunctional family?
P.S. From the trailers, Joss has done a fantastic job working from the original comics series.
