2012 is one fantastic year, I must say. It’s like the geekiest franchises in Hollywood are all just a tiny bit worried about the Mayan calendar, and they thought: What if the world really does end? We can’t let that happen without finishing the Batman trilogy, making a really great Spider-Man movie, and combining the most beloved genius hero of geekdom with an unbelievable all-star cast to bring to life the Mighty Avengers!
Because PopCap is the greatest place on earth, we’re all taking off a little early tomorrow to go enjoy this cinematic masterpiece (I don’t indulge in hyperbole or conjecture — it’s the Avengers, and it’s by Joss Whedon. QED: Masterpiece). Tonight will be a little like Christmas Eve used to be when I was a kid. How many times in our adult lives do we get to be this excited? It’s a glorious year to be a geek.
If you’re as jazzed as I am, comment with favorite moments from the Marvel movies that have led up to the Avengers! I’ll start: Thor calling Agent Coulson “Son of Coul.” Classic.
Enjoy the movie, everyone!
