So, "The Avengers" had it's world premiere last week, and has since had a screenings for fans and press and everyone in between and the general consensus is that it rocks. Even among the nearly half dozen Playlist folk who've seen the film, word has been very positive. But as for this writer....I still can't get over the overblown dialogue and almost comically serious tone in these clips.

The latest has Tom Hiddleston aka Loki and Samuel L. Jackson aka Nick Fury (wearing a Bluetooth earpiece?) talking to each other and explaining in some very heavy-handed dialogue how they feel about each other. And in case you haven't guessed, they don't like each other. Meanwhile, the rest of the Avengers look on from their high tech workstations. This is like the Marvel equivalent of "The I.T. Crowd" (or something). All this said, of all the villains in the Marvel movies, Hiddleston has been the most fun since he's striking the right tone between reverence and being aware he's in a comic book movie. Anyway, "The Avengers" opens on May 4th. Watch below.

    This is amazing. Tom Hiddleston is a fantastic actor. This is awesome, and I hear it's his most underwhelming scene. Can you imagine what the rest of the movie must be like?!

    It has a 9.5 on imdb right now. Wonder if it will try to go number one like Dark Knight tried?

    It won't make it even close to that, as good as it might be.

    I;ve read that the film is very funny but all the clips I've seen show suggest they are all taking it far too seriously.Lots of posing and strutting. Hiddleston lacks power in his voice. He's playing the role as if its a Shakespearean character but the script just makes him look silly.

    I get that not everyone is going to enjoy The Avengers, and I get that there are those that will be unabashedly biased (one way or the other) because of Marvel and/or Joss Whedon's involvement, but seriously?

    The last few articles on The Avengers just SCREAM of blistering contempt. Seems like you're working overtime to put the "anal" in critical analysis.

    I'll settle for a Felicity Jones cameo for the same effect. Or Scoot McNairy.

    Meh, they'll likely bemoan the "choice of fare" and write it off as the "tentpole lure"

    I hope they edit Ryan Gosling in at the last second, and every Playlist staffer will be forced to commit ritual suicide for speaking ill of The One.
