So, not too many of you live in Austin, but if anyone is interested in seeing the movie of Avengers on May 6th, I guess (I just realized we have a graduation party to attend on Saturday, so its got to be Sunday), let me know.
We'll hit one of the Alamo locations to ensure the bestest experience for seeing the movie. And if you're Aaron, I think I promised you a ticket.
Am I excited for Avengers? No, not really. I am probably more excited for this than, say, Tintin, but less excited than I was for... lots of other stuff. I mostly get excited at about the 30 minute mark if a movie hasn't let me down yet. That's how, these days, I deal with the crippling disappointment that comes with trying to enjoy superhero movies. People, I saw both Fantastic Four movies, a Ghost Rider and Daredevil in the theater. This is the only sane reaction.
If you want to join me and the missus (who is revealing herself to be more into all this than you'd think), contact me anyway you like, and we'll sort it out.
Leading up to the movie, I think its only fair I do something in honor of the men and women who paved the way for Avengers to become a huge, tent-pole type movie. So do not think I will diss Jack and the gang as we head towards big summer fun.
If you'd like to join in by writing about Jack Kirby, Walt Simonson, Joe Simon, Stan Lee, etc... just let me know! I'd welcome the participation.
