It was quite good, I thought—and the potential for this concept to become the most laughable garbage was huge! Not an easy bullet to dodge, I would think. Joss Whedon has a way of making me appreciate things that otherwise bore me SO badly, from vampire-slaying to comic book movies.

It probably helped that I had already seen the Thor and Captain America films—which were just “OK.” Those two characters have maximum potential to just seem incredibly silly, but with some back story I accepted them. Especially Captain America’s ridiculous outfit, like something from a musical stage show in the 40s! Well, that was explained in his earlier movie—it WAS something from a musical stage show in the 40s. And the character himself didn’t like that. Clever way to make the super-cheesy seem slightly less cheesy.

If I saw the Avengers cold without seeing any prequels, it could have seemed a bit cheesier... but no less fun. Even the action scenes (in other words, most of the movie!) were great, and I have little patience for the soulless action they churn out these days.

I even knew to stay to the very end and see both little added credits scenes.

Has anyone seen this is DBOX seats? Is it worth it?

Is there an after-credits scene?

I saw one movie with DBOX seats (the latest Pirates of the Caribbean) and they just felt really distracting. The theater near me puts them in this weird corner in a big glass box and the whole thing just took me out of the movie. I wouldn't recommend them.

Also, this a Marvel movie, there are always videos after the credits. This time, however, there are 2.

Two, one 30 seconds after the movie, then one after the full 4 minutes of credits. I missed the 2nd one, had to see it online.

I stayed for both last week but the second wasnt in yet. I hadnt even heard of it but just knowing the marvel films and Joss I thought there might be a second. I was sort of right.

There's a second video where they're all eating "Shawarma".
