I agree. 2012 has been fanatic so far.
Not sure yet if I'll get out to the theater to see this one, but I expect to dig it quite a bit when I finally do. I don't have any interest in the comics at all, but then Iron man was always one of my least favorite superheroes and I thought the first movie kicked all kinds of ass. Same thing for Captain America -- I never cared at all for the character in the comics, but I thought the movie was really decent.
Managed to see it and while it didn't change my life or anything, it was a solid fun popcorn movie. It kept going at pretty much a constant pace which helped get over that there's no real emotional heft like the one I enjoyed in the Thor movie. Hulk pretty much stole the movie like I had hoped he would. And I really dig Loki as a villain, both in this and Thor. The "court death" line had me really jazzed for more. If they follow all the connotations that could lead to, then we could be in for some really crazy stuff. Overall, one of the best event movies in the last few years.
Loved the incredible Hulk this time around. Didn't care for Norton or Bana.
