The Avengers is currently #3 on my flickchart list. It was the culmination of nearly 30 years of my geekiness coming to fruition. I also got to see it with one of my closest friends, The Armchair Squid, who has become a recent comic book convert, at a midnight showing opening night.
It is sometimes interesting to me that my love of comic books doesn't always translate to their movie counterparts. Leading up to this movie, the only one I saw with these characters, in the theater, was Captain America: The First Avenger. Nan and I saw X-Men on our honeymoon and did go to the two sequels. Then I didn't go to X-Men Origins: Wolverine nor X-Men: First Class, but I'm pumped for The Wolverine.
And don't even get me started on the DC Comics movies!!!
