When Matt and I started dating, he used to have to beg me to go and see a Marvel comic book movie with him. Iron Man, Spider-Man, Captain America, The Fantastic Four — for some reason, I always felt pretty meh about checking them out. But something has changed: When the latest Avengers movie hit theaters last weekend, I wasn’t just psyched to go, I suggested it.
There’s something about the story, the action and the cast (Robert Downey Jr., I’m talking to you) that’s engaging and fun. I find myself on the edge of my seat — gasping at every plot twist and silently cheering for every small victory. I even have come to like ScarJo (did you see this hilarious spoof on Marvel movies that she shot for SNL?).
So, what do you think? Will you go see this film?
