‘Avengers’ assemble!

I like when Iron Man says funny things.

Assuming the Internet doesn’t collapse today with the debut of the first trailer for next summer’s sure-to-be-a-record-breaker, “The Avengers,” feast your eyes on it:



Pro: ScarJo.

Con: Real 3D.

The Avengers

So many superheroes, so little satisfaction.


Action

I swear I’m not playing the contrarian card for the sake of doing so, but I disliked The Avengers — not with a passion, but mere disengagement. With the exception of Thor, I loved all the films leading up to this ultimate one, from 2008’s Iron Man to last summer’s Captain America: The First Avenger. I even entered this one carrying next-to-no expectations.

The Deep Blue Sea

Rachel Weisz commits the vice of adultery in a drama so pedestrian-paced, it makes sex look boring.


Drama

Rod Lott
Don’t confuse last year’s drama The Deep Blue Sea with Deep Blue Sea, the 1999 action movie about sharks. Based on a stage play, this is the one that could use some sharks.

Captain America: Collector’s Edition

He was the big screen’s real ‘First Avenger.’


Action

Rod Lott
Not long after Batman changed Hollywood in the summer of 1989, every studio wanted to have the next comics-based blockbuster. I remember visiting Penn Square Mall’s multiplex (as I did often back then) and seeing a poster for Captain America. The one-sheet was comprised of little more than a close-up of Cap’s iconic shield and a promise to arrive next summer.

The Iceman

Just chill.


Drama

Rod Lott

By now, playing the nice guy with a dark side must be old hat to Michael Shannon, to the point of typecasting. Think of Take Shelter. Think of HBO's Boardwalk Empire. That's how you'll think of The Iceman.
