Suit up! It’s time for the Joss and The Fury, in PodCulture’s Spoilerific Avengers episode!

If you haven’t seen it yet, what are you waiting for? Go see it and come back to us, because no holds are barred.

Glenn gives us a brief synopsis and doesn’t know what they could have done to make it better, Joss Whedon being just the icing on the cake. Adam touches on the rapier dialogue and timing that has proved to be so Whedonesque. Brad and Adam discuss why Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner is standing alone amongst portrayals. Everyone loved the unlikely camaraderie between Bruce and Tony Stark. Glenn appreciates the concise recap of all the main characters for the audience who haven’t seen their solo movies. Adam lovingly discusses some of the finer points of CGI and Christina asks questions of the resident comic book boys. It leads them to discuss some of their favorite homages, especially Nick Fury’s awesomeness. They compare 3D to Digital Projection versions and whether, or not, the 3D worked. The excited group looks forward to all the extra things that will inevitably be on the dvd. Sidetripping, just for a moment, they compare the Whedon Alumni in Avengers to Cabin In The Woods. Christina points out some of the highlights of the former film being partially shot in Cleveland.

After the break, they return to plan all-day marathons of the Avengers’ solo movies. Adam pulls up the box office numbers, and Christina hopes it can knock James Cameron out of at least one in the top two spots. They talk about Cabin In The Woods again, both the good and the bad. The after-after-credit scenes in Avengers made it all the more worthwhile. Each theorizes about the future of the franchise, including villains and vices. Christina wishes for a Hawkeye and Black Widow movie, while the boys vote on ways to bring back bad guys.

In closing, four out of four geeks absolutely loved Avengers. Brad takes a moment to compare Marvel and DC successes on both the large and small screen. Adam remarks on the tight script and ensemble play. It would not be a Joss Whedon movie without certain plot points. Glenn touches on the costume hits and nearly misses, and Brad loved the quintessential cameo by Stan Lee. The whole room enjoyed the Lego Avengers short before the film and all look forward to what is next on the horizon for Whedon and Co.
