TICKET or SKIP IT: 'Marvel's The Avengers'

Corey Wood calls this latest Marvel adventure the greatest comic book movie of all time.
Welcome to our new web series: Ticket or Skip It. Reporting from his room aboard the USS Echo, a small submarine conducting biological research in the Atlantic Ocean, comes reviewer Corey Wood, who has agreed to grace us on a weekly basis with an update of all the new films hitting cinemas around the world (which he watches via satellite in a private screening room aboard this seafaring vessel). Watch as Corey professes his undying love for the 'greatest comic book movie of all time', Marvel's The Avengers.

"Everything about this is just sweet and awesome. Everytime I see it, I enjoy it more and more. I have seen the movie once in IMAX, twice in 3D, and once in 2D digital. Even in 2D digital, I loved it just as much. I could watch this movie on bootleg and still enjoy it! This is the best film of 2012 so far!"



This week, Corey spends most of his waking hours sitting in a movie theater, watching Marvel's The Avengers over and over again with a big boner under his raincoat. Check out Episode 1.05: Marvel's The Avengers, then decide for yourself if you want to Ticket or Skip It!

Marvel's The Avengers was released May 4th, 2012 and stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg. The film is directed by Joss Whedon.

    It was a pretty average Marvel action movie. Well worth the 3D price for the beautiful 3d imagery. Best I've seen yet.

    @skywise Aside from Avengers, they now have a chance broaden their roster outside the Earth's guardians

    I wouldnt even mind a S.H.I.E.L.D. movie or even Hawkeye. But i also would like to see some more Avengers come along like Vision and Scarlet Witch!

    @skywise Yes, i've been waiting for this movie for a long time. I agree it really has hit the nail on the head, like what you have said. I cannot wait for sequels for the individual Avenger characters, before the Avengers 2 is released, meaning like Thor 2, Captain America 2, Iron Man 3, the untitled Mark Ruffalo/Hulk movie, etc.

    @themoviefanatic I love my X Men but this is the team oriented movie i have been waiting for and to be honest (and you all know i love Marvel) I was never a huge Avengers fanatic. I mean to say, i have read them and keep up to date but not my fav. However, this movie really hit the nail on the head.

    @skywise Yes, you're right. Good point.

    @themoviefanatic absolutly true. Iron Man is kind of based in reality as it is essentially a big toy. But i would say that Cap has powers. Agility, strength and speed.

    @skywise Not all the Avengers have super powers. There's Thor with his hammer that has powers. There's also the Hulk, who turns into a big green angry monster.

    The Avengers is more "Super" than TDK. The thing that makes Batman so successful with non-comic fans i think is how grounded in reality it has been, at least until this point. But if its super powers you want, Avengers it is.

    @bawnian-dexeus money I am going to say 675m domestic and 745m international

    @bawnian-dexeus also I think TDKR has the potential to be better than TDK. Ledger carried TDK to me and from what I have seen from the trailers Bales performance looks much better, Bane looks fantastic and will probably have the best lines. Ann looks better than most people expected and of course you got JGL and Michael Caine. A great cast

    @bawnian-dexeus
    I haven't made comparisons to TDKR yet, I will once I see it. all my talk regarding the on-going debate has been regarding TDK vs Avengers

    @bawnian-dexeus TDKR won't top Avengers opening record I'm sure. I think it will get the record for midnight showings and will be the top overall grossing movie of the summer. @youngrizo superman won't show up because he doesn't fit Nolans world. I have heard Flash and Wonder Woman might make a cameo in the Man of Steel. If not a cameo they might be mentioned. Either way I'm ready for a trailer.

    @youngrizo Well, you are all making early projections and comparisons, so I will be most interested in your final judgement

    @bawnian-dexeus TDKR may or may not top The Avengers. Hell, ASM could be the underdog of the summer and none of us will see it coming. Thats what makes 2012 so awesome, its the year of epic, epic comic-book movies.
