now, this was to be expected :P
I think Batman will be better (but both will be excellent), but I think you may be right. I can see it maybe being close, but I have a feeling that The Avengers will win it.
I still believe it will make more money than Batman, but we'll see by summer's end.
Just saw it for the second time, so I guess I'm part of the reason it's doing well in New Zealand :). The reason it was NZ's largest opening was probably because it opened on a public holiday (Anzac Day) on Wednesday.
Yeah, it's pretty great. I don't know if it's Great, for example I think Nolan's stuff has been better, but its easily better than any film I've seen so far this year, though The Grey is coming out next Friday here, so that might change things pretty quick. For that matter, I'm watching Predator in theater tomorrow - so that might change things too :)
Micro review: Joss Whedon's smart dialog and subversion of gravitas cut with wide-scale action cinematography taking notes from DC's animated works. Notably, he (or his co-writer) restrain themselves from making everyone super-snarky: everyone has a solid voice and keep their character inline from what we've seen in their own films. Also:
So far with reviews, I'll see it at the theater and most likely preorder it for its disc release to complete the collection. Hopefully it brings all the major players smoothly into this release and it'll be a good centerpiece, maybe not a masterpiece, and I'll be able to say, I'm glad someone finally got their comic solar system spinning. Hopefully one day either through rights reverting or some money deal, we'll see the other properties seamlessly able to appear throughout each other . . Fantastic Four inviting Spidey to join or the Avengers, . . . maybe no Ghost Rider . . . but maybe a Punisher against Spidey, or DareDevil, or Punisher vs GhostRider if ratings are to be R.
Trailer: The Avengers
Six superheroes, Loki, alien invaders, Nick Fury, Maria Hill, and who knows what else. This movie is going to be eight hours long.
