This is the movie I had been waiting for. The pinnacle, the very cherry atop the metaphorical sundae. A diamond in the rough, as it were. And I was not dissapointed. Set design was phenomenal, very careful detail was put into it. Costume design followed faithfully with the comic books as did the character appearance.

Scarlette Johansson- (Natasha Romanoff/The Black Widow) More effort could not have been put into a female protagonist were it attempted. Her portrayal of our favorite female S.H.E.I.L.D agent was outstanding and not so provocative and stereotypical that we lost sight of the strong, empowering woman that she is. Being one of two of the only lead female roles gave her a chance to up her game and prove she could roll with the big boys.

Chris Evans- (Steve Rogers/Captain America) An American hero, worthy of the his title. He has no delusions of grandeur, I only remember seeing a straight-forward, honest soldier throughout this movie. If there is anyone you want leading your band of Avengers, it's Cap.

Mark Ruffalo- (Bruce Banner/The Hulk) A mad scientist and introverted, anxious, insecure weakling was what I got from Mark in this movie. Now don't get me wrong, I like the Hulk as much as the next person, but when it comes to the Hulk,between Edward Norton and Mark Ruffalo, it's comparable to Benedict vs Robert D. Jr. Of course you're going to choose the Cumbergod.

Robert Downy Jr.- (Tony Stark/Iron Man) Aside from his genius-billionaire-playboy-philanthropist ways, Robert Downy Jr. brought a light, refreshing sense of humor to the movie.

Chris Hemsworth- (Thor) A mighty thunder god could be played by no other the way Chris Hemsworth did. He has a certain swish of his cape and a flex of his muscle that just lets you know, that guy actually IS Thor. Nuff said.

and of course, saving the best for last:
Tom Hiddleston- (Loki) this opinion, like my other opinions, is very biased, mainly because I am swooning over a certain dark haired british gentleman playing a certain evil, would-be king, villain with a flourish of his scepter that really can't be articulated. Tom Hiddleston brought such a flurry of emotion with his character. He made you believe the hurt and the pain. His scenes with Natasha Romanoff are, as we like to hope, fraught with tension. A more sensual, villainous persona could not be captured by anyone other than Tom.
Oh yes, I rooted for the bad guy.

So there you have it. A fantastic, action packed movie that was everything we comic nerds hoped it would be. I would definitly see this movie again.
