I know that Sam Jackson signed for 9 films but I don't remember if that was before or after IM (so I don't know if IM is included in the 9).

In February 2009, Samuel L. Jackson signed a nine-picture deal with Marvel Entertainment to play the role of Nick Fury in Iron Man 2 and other films, acting as a vehicle for characters such as Captain America, Thor, the Avengers, and S.H.I.E.L.D.

I didn't bother with CapN America or Thor movies, but looks like I missed out on origins of the cube and the Loki guy?  Didn't matter though.

I guess if Jackson ever gets tired of being Nike Fury. We can get this guy to do it again....

Saw it today.  I was most impressed that the Avengers could keep the baddies within a 4 block radius around Grand Central station!  ;)

If you're interested, Captain America gives a little more perspective on how the Nazis/Hydra used the Cube and where it came from.  Thor's movie covers a little bit of the relationship between him and Loki.  He's more of an Eddie Haskle type in Thor.  Neat cameo with Hawkeye in that one as well.

Am I the only person left in America who hasn't seen this yet...?  Man, Cap & Friends sure have set the summer bar high for Batman and Spidey.  :-X

If you use 'America' in the broader sense to include those of us dependent almost entirely upon you to purchase our export products, then no. 

I really want to see it and the reviews are all great, though I'm trying to gloss over much of the discussion to avoid ruining any aspects of the film.  But I have very little enjoyment going to theaters anymore as some knob always has their cellphone going doing something or more likely I'm beside one of the "narrator" types that has to chat throughout the whole thing.  With my old job my hours were flexible enough that I could catch a noon show and see the movies I wanted.  No longer so it'll be a while before I see this.   :-\

Caught it again this weekend, just as great as the first time.  Can't wait for this to hit blu ray (sounds like September 25th maybe?), definitely a movie I could watch over and over.  Looking forward to the rest of the summer with Spidey, Batman, GI Joe, and Brave (Pixar's latest)....then onto the Hobbit in December :).

Yeah, September 25th is the expected date for the Blu Ray release.  It does seem pretty far off, and I agree:  I could watch this movie several times over.  I'm just a little disappointed that it's already out of the IMAX theaters.  I saw it in 3-D, but seeing it in IMAX 3-D would've been pretty cool.

What's the deal with a 3 hour director's cut coming out later this summer?

Hmmn.  I thought the movie was near perfect as is.  Would be interesting to see what else they left out though...

That is one unfortunate action figure stand...



I can't figure out if this one is as gorgeous as the first Black Widow they sold or not...

That's how I'd be if I were the stand.

But seriously - no idea.  Maybe they're always like that.
