Not only is The Avengers full of colorful characters, it is directed by Joss Whedon who is famous for TV series like Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Naturally, the critics love it. Find out if Jason and Marni do too.

它集 Marvel 公司所有超级英雄电影的大成于一身。雷神、美国队长、绿巨人和钢铁侠都参演过大获成功的电影。现在他们云集一起,合作出演这部巨型大片,讲述了这些超级英雄如何表现非凡。
《复仇者联盟》(The Avengers) 不仅塑造了各种充满传奇色彩的人物角色,它还由乔斯·韦登 (Joss Whedon) 执导,他在拍摄电视剧《吸血鬼猎人巴菲》 (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) 便名噪一时。难怪挑剔的评论家也喜欢这部电影。看看詹森和玛尼是否也喜欢。

Jason:  Every summer, these big blockbusters come out, and I get really excited. Like, I totally buy into the trailers. And then I’m usually let down. It’s just not…the writing isn’t that good. It doesn’t deliver. But this summer, I really think The Avengers is gonna be great.

Marni:  Really?

Jason:  Yeah.

Marni:  Well, I’m glad you’re so optimistic.

Jason:  Well, for one thing, almost all of the critics agree that it is great. It’s gotten rave reviews. Pretty amazing cast, Robert Downey, Jr., Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson. And it’s the origin story of this team of superheroes. That kind of stuff, it’s hard to miss.

Marni:  Well, it’s kind of interesting because the Iron Man series has done really well, but the other two films that they brought out, Thor and Captain America, neither of those did really well. It’ll be kind of interesting to see how they bring it together.

 I don’t like superhero movies. In fact I never watch them. I tried doing it, but  it’s too boring for me. I remember one hero named Batman only because many boys wore T-shorts with that name. I like watching movies with deep sense, romantic, historical, those which make me ponder and feel.  Sometimes I watch comedies, but I don’t like stupid humor. Humor must be fine. Otherwise I will not laugh.:)

i know some people always say that they prefer something so called real,, but i wanna ask ‘how to define reality?’ many things what you see might not be the truth. As for the truth you are not fortunate enough to see…

Films with superhero are not my favourite. I don’t know why but mostly I conect it with science fiction or action films where play unreal person or stranger form outer space. Moreover there is only main hero and other actors are not important. I prefer films where I can think about next scene, I can cry because it sad, I can think after the end.

For me yes i love these movies and my favorite superhero is Hulk, i love him and actually what i love the most about this character is the idea of the love between beautiful woman and very strong and scary person, i loved the scenes in which he turns into this scary person and once he sees her he gets so soft and nice, i just love this movie.
