    As far as fan trailers go, this is pretty good. (The Wolverine stinger scene included.)

    Agents of SHIELD wasn't bad, but I was a little disappointed in how it was framed as a police procedural like every other show on television. I had been hoping from a little more considering the show's high profile and the fact that Whedon directed it.

    yeah, checked out 'Agents' pretty much has all the trademark Whedon vibes that everyone but me seems to love. Whole thing was pretty cringe worthy IMO. It cameclose to hitting the mark a few times. If it kept the mystery/procedural vibe. But it kept tipping its hand early on. Maybe it'll get better.

But in hindsight the mere fact that it's centered around Tony's cognitive dissonance following the events of The Avengers is ultimately enough in the long-run. I just wish the post-credits scene was less of a throwaway and more relevant to the big picture again. But I guess they're having trouble figuring out what to do with the Hulk now so the more Banner the better, whatever his context. Anyway, the point is fuck it. Iron Man 3 was awesome and so was Iron Man 2.:PHaha,
    I don't get why every movie has to have a direct tie-in to everything else, the tie-ins feel like the big crossover events where every superhero gets thrown into the same mixing pot, now some of those can be brilliant - but not all of them were.

    IM3 was a movie i really enjoyed, their risky take on the Mandarin was brilliant even if it would also really torque some folks the wrong way. It had just enough post Avengers to make sense, and yet still be a standalone film. ie if IM3 is the only movie you've seen it still works. I didn't like the over the topness of the extremis stuff and all 3000 of the iron man suits being melted faster than butter vs a hot knife, (maybe it's just the inner geek in me, but i hate when films break physics) but the cast was great, the story worked, successful film.

    IM2 otoh i just remember being bored during the final big battle scene.

    To me it was just a "CSI-kind-of-show" with the excuse that it is Marvel... didn't care about it to be honest...

    I liked Agents of Shield quite a bit, will definitely be watching every week. An hour of Agent Coulson every week? Yes please. I also quite liked the other characters, the meat head "bad ass" is pretty lame though.

    Bought Iron Man 3 and watched it again, still liked it a lot.

    I definitely enjoyed Agents of Shield too although there were a few uneasy moments. It felt like trying on a new pair of shoes (stupid feet) that you love but that aren't broken in yet. I have about a dozen theories about what really happened to Agent that he must not know about, regarding his survival after his encounter with the Asgardian Mussolini (who, technically, is a Jotun Mussolini). The new characters are a bit bland but it's just one episode; hopefully, it'll get better.

    I didn't dig Flying Lola though.

    Agents of SHIELD was alright. They made some plot and scene choices that were pretty perplexing (especially that bit where it looked like the dude got shot but then it was just a tranquilizer? Could they possibly have been more vague and confusing about what happened there? Jesus.), but overall the episode was solid enough. Hopefully things will ramp up with the rest of the season.

    I do like that they're staying away from referencing the films too much, keeping the show mostly independent. That's a good move, and I hope they stick with it.

    Man, do they have kinks to work out on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Aside from Coulson and Spoiler: Nick Fury, I can't stand the newbies. Fitz and Simmons are so annoying, the hacker girl is blah and Agent Ward is not a very good actor.

    Oh, and the CGI is really weak. Stop using the science drones as a plot device!

    Not impressed by this show at all, not giving up on it yet by any means because come on it is only two episodes in so I am willing to give it a chance but so far this hasn't been that good. That is just my opinion of course. Maybe I expected too much from this show.

    I agree Orestes I find all the characters outside of Coulson just bland and annoying.

    And in their advertisements they keep hyping up the fact we should watch the last 5 minutes of every show, the old "Hey there will be cameo's by people you might care about every show" trick.

    The show has been comically bad, but still manages to come off slightly charming for a variety of reasons. I suppose that's about as best as I could have hoped for given my low expectations. I won't care if I follow it chronologically or miss an episode(s), nor do I consider it relevant MCU cannon, but over the course of a show's 45 min run time, it gets a few half smiles from me and has enough nice moments to justify its campy existence. I have a feeling this would have done so much better in the 80's. It's just fucking depressing big picture wise that in this day and age this is the best serial Marvel could come up with. It's best not to think about that part.

    I watch it for Coulson. As long as it's showing me Coulson, I'm happy. And it's only been 2 episodes; it may get better yet.

    I don't know, I like it. Agent Ward or whatever his name is is terrible but I don't mind the rest of the cast.

    And like marodi said, as long as Coulson is in it I don't give a shit.

    Well, so far I'm enjoying the Thor commercials they've been airing each week more than the show.

    I wonder if that'll be the same trailer running before Thor. Hopefully that means it won't be a teaser and instead we'll get a full thing. But probably not.

    I'm hoping a full trailer, but I would be content with a tease. I'm from Cleveland and had the chance to be an extra on set for a couple days, it was amazing. I hope I make the final cut, but with this mug I'll probably find the chopping room floor.

    Kevin Feige teases calls Ant-Man a "heist movie," all but confirms Dr. Strange.

    Had no idea Blink was in the new X-Men movie until today - so awesome! She's been one of my favorites since Exiles (great ongoing series that I never finished). That trailer was better than I expected. Starting to get really excited!
