It might be a little early to start talking about the forthcoming movie The Avengers but I must admit, I'm excited for it.
First, it's written and directed by Joss Whedon, who is a genius. Anyone who hasn't seen Firefly needs to. Like immediately.

I'll be interested to see his twist on a character that didn't come from his mind, and I'm sure he'll do great.
Second, the return of Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. Of all the superhero movies, it ranks high on my list of favorites. He's funny, smart, and completely believable in the role.
Third, and most importantly, the return of Thor's abs, hopefully in a longer moment than the few short seconds we got last time.
