I'm as rocked as hell for this film too. And like everyone else who's got an interest in this, I'm still none the wiser as who these beings are that constitutes Loki's army. Initial clues suggested Skrulls, but that's been flatly denied by the people involved. Course, that could still mean the Skrulls Ultimate counterparts, The Chitauri, could be involved.

Other suggestions have been The Badoon and The Sons of Muspell. But the ones these creatures look closest to are the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim:




But it's still anyone's guess at the moment. I honestly reckon the identity of these aliens is deliberately being kept secret in order to stoke up interest in the film. The tactic certainly seems to be working :-)

And the rumours that Thanos might make an appearance have resurfaced again...

Given Loki shows up in the trailer, that sounds reasonable.

I'm fairly ambivalent about the Avengers . . . all I want is a full length, feature film about Agent Coulson.

I figure that I could be very happy with more 'Marvel One Shots.' with him and the guy from 'The Consultant'.

If you are talking about Loki, then the Jotun would not be far behind, I think.

Which DVD is the Consultant one shot on? I know the Thor's Hammer one is on the Captain America DVD.

Ah, I'll have to check it out then. I just bought that a few weeks ago. We're planning a little marathon party before going to see The Avengers.

I am still upset they cast Chris Evans as 2 different Marvel super-heroes. I can't picture him as Captain America when I'm picturing him as the Human Torch.

sorry..after the ending scene in Time Square where you see it hitting him that his world was gone.. I don't see him as Johnny Storm anymore. He's Cap to me now. :D

lol *snort*

But this is going to be awesome, Loki is like indestructible obviously after floating in the void he's still around. But they have small-ish fighters that shoot blue crap so I doubt it is the frost giants, but there are multiple different beings that inhabit that realm. The interesting this is how were they able to find Earth? Have they discovered another gateway bridge? Or have they somehow managed to find Earth on star maps?

I don't know.. but the 'offical movie merch' includes.. Skulls. And that thing Iron Man is chased by looks like the 'movieverse' version of the world serpent sorta thing.

Jormungandr? The world snake? Otherwise known as the Midgard Serpent and son of Loki. According to the legend Thor kills Jormungandr during Ragnarok then dies soon after having being poisoned by the great serpent.

Will be interesting to see how they interpret this, as Loki has two other children, the giant grey wolf Fenrir and Hel goddess of the underworld.

Early tweets from the screening two days ago (I think it was two days, anyway) suggest that the film is pretty damn good, and that the hulk is just...well, excellent.

Would never happen, even if Cap got fire powers.

Never happen.

Just seen it today. Alas, the standout moments for me are a bit too spoilerish to be revealed right now, but suffice it to say...oh fuckin hell, it's great. One thing they got right was how each of the superheroes were introduced into the movie; nothing felt contrived or shoehorned in - there was a distinct impression that they were all brought together for reasons that went back into their own individual storylines. In fact, a number of plot elements from the previous standalone superhero movies had resonances with this story, and it worked really, really well.

I saw the 3D version - I'd say the effect was workmanlike but not standout; then again, the 3D did in no way distract from anything that was going on on-screen. So IMO you're not gaining or losing much from watching either the 2D or 3D version - it's just down to a matter of personal preference.

In the UK - where I am - it was released today. Dunno why it was released a few days before the US version; I guess the people involved in the marketing strategy must have their reasons.

I saw it was on in my local cinema yesterday as well, though I didn't have time to go to it. Probably will next week though.
