PiercingMetal Thoughts: I loved the trailers that aired for this film and was completely sold on their first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and I have to say that the film became one of my very favorites of the Marvel Studios offerings very quickly. Sure I had read the comics over the years but as I might have mentioned in my views about the first film release, I was hesitant to think that they could work in this context as such an unknown. They sure proved us wrong so I have complete faith in this one and look forward to seeing more new cosmic characters. As you read this my plan is to see the film on its opening day which is sometime today but as usual I have to make sure other items are attended to here in the household. I can always hit a matinee after the weekend blitz. What about you readers? Are you interested in this film? Are you rallying behind me with the cry of “Make Mine Marvel Studios”? Let me know in the comments section below and if you should see it I ask that you refrain from any commenting. I will post a non-spoiler review about a week after I’ve caught the feature and you can do that when the time comes. Thanks for reading.
