We still don't know who Loki's army is. Is it the Chitauri, the Korbinites, or what?

There are apparently reviews about now that spoil that, but I've purposely avoided them! Early buzz from the premiere is that the movie is the best Marvel has released thus far and sets the bar high for all Marvel movies afterwards. And the Hulk is often referred to as the best thing about the film!

I keep forgetting that it's out next week! Seems like Disney are ramping up the marketing spend with TV spots and new clips seem to be getting released all the time. I'm trying not to watch any of them because I don't want to be spoiled but the temptation is killing me!

Disney bought Marvel Comics (including the film business) a year or two ago.

(Just checked, it was actually 2009)

Apparently it's amazingly good, there have been early screenings in the US and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. It has already caused the inevitable "it's better than TDK!" arguments among the DC and Marvel online communities and it hasn't even been released yet.

Yeah, the fan screenings have been overwhelmingly positive. There are a few reviews up online, worth checking out.

I've booked our 2D tickets for the 26th and am stupidly excited about this!

I had heard the reviews were good, but not read them in case of spoilers.

A small and quite unlikely rumour circling about the final scene (not really main plot related).

Spoiler

gonna rewatch all the individual movies,anyone know what the timeline is?

is it?

Captain America
Iron Man
Hulk
Iron Man 2
Thor

?
I was under the impression that The Incredible Hulk was set after Iron Man 2 in the timeline?
Wasn't there a scene in Hulk where Tony Stark makes a cameo appearance ?

That order seems correct, I seem to remember someone saying Iron Man 2 runs parallel with the Incredible Hulk. Also when recently watching Iron Man 2 in the scene where Nick Fury tells Tony Stark he will only be used as a consultant if you look at some of the TV monitors they are showing a news feed covering the Campus Battle from the Incredible Hulk (Or so I believe!)

I am looking forward to this. I was slightly underwhelmed by Captain America but this is a different film so anyway. I heard a spoiler online that

Avengers Assemble. I would recommend a little re-watch of Thor, Capt America etc before viewing, just to appreciate its finer points.
Twitter post from critic James King.

Also gave the film a positive reveiw (well... tweet)

Absolutely FUMING that Manchester IMAX are not showing Avengers! Looked on the Odeon site today to see if I could book my tickets and there were no listings for IMAX screenings, just regular.
So they're gonna show Wrath of the Titans on IMAX, proabably to a half filled theatre when had they shown Avengers they would've had a full one! Idiots! Grrrrrrr....

...annnnddd breathe... one thing I still don't get with Incredible Hulk is, what's the fate of Abomination? Hulk nearly strangles him to death and would've had it not been for Betty's intervention. But instead leaves him there subdued. What happens to him? 'cause it's not made clear in the film.

And is Liverpool One a proper purpose built IMAX screen like Manchester or a retro-fitted or smaller sized version?

Yeah I've just checked their site, and it says "now with IMAX" so it's been built after the cinema opened. I know it'll be bigger than normal screens, but I also know I'll sit there grumbling to myself, "well it's not as big as Manchester's"
