On Friday May 4th Marvel Comics latest offering -The Avengers - hits the big screen. With an estimated cost of $220,000,000, directed by Joss Whedon and with every hot A-Lister you can think of, this should be a huge draw for all ages. Check out the above trailer- you gotta admit this looks like great fun!They are going to make a fortune!
Marvel Comics has had great success in bringing their action heroes to the screen and we have a wonderful collection of them at CPL.
Iron Man 1 and 2
X-Men- 1, 2 United 3 Last Stand, Origins Wolverine and X Men First Class---I luv the X-men franchise! I even know what I would want for my own mutation.
Captain America- not as 'flag-waving' as I feared it might be, this is worth your two hours.
The Hulk- to me the weakest entry but still fun.
Spider Man 1, 2 and 3
And an entire series of Marvel Animated SpiderMan 1 High Voltage 2 Mutant Menace 3 Ultimate Faceoff 4 Extreme Threat
And tomorrow I am off to the Comic Expo, where in attendance is the creator of all this Marvellous mayhem-the legendary Stan Lee
And an update- I saw Joss Whedon's Cabin in the Woods last night. Well, I didn't actually see HIS cabin, but you know what I mean. Let me just say this- he did find a way to put a new twist on the classic "group of hot teens spending a weekend away and all hell breaks loose/demented meat hook waving inbreds/does anybody survive" storyline. Gory, bloody and over the top doesn't even begin to describe it. Did I like it? A little more than I like these typical slasher films- only because he found that twist.
