DISCUSSION: The Avengers Is Secretly A Chick Flick

While most action flicks lean heavily on gratuitous and action scenes, The Avengers offered a lot for the ladies. The T&A was still there, but the film seemed to lean more towards gratuitous scenes featuring the men! The action scenes were bookended by drama and emotion. Was this the influence of Joss Whedon or a reflection of changing demographics for superhero movie audiences?

DISCUSSION: Avengers Disassemble!

With the success of The Avengers, it’s inevitable that sequels and follow-ups will be next. Iron Man 3 is already announced for next year, followed the following year by Captain America 2. Where do you think Thor, Iron Man, Captain America and The Incredible Hulk will go post-Avengers? What do you think The Avengers 2 will be like? The Marvel universe is vast - what other heroes would you like to see join the Avengers in the future or get their own feature films?
