Deadline is reporting this morning that over the Anzac day public holiday Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ broke records at the Australian box office.

Be prepared for a LOT of gushing over Marvel Studio’s ‘The Avengers’. I’m going to give it to you straight; the film is phenomenally awesome. No review for the film really matters anyway because you’d be mental to miss the biggest superhero film event since we were pooped out from the big bang. Therefore, the burning question – is it the greatest superhero movie ever made? Our yardstick for the perfect superhero film is Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight’ and Richard Donner’s ‘Superman’. ‘The Avengers’ gets the bronze medal behind these films but serves as one of the best blockbusters ever made and is a fantastic accomplishment of Marvel Studios and writer/director Joss Whedon.
Another day, another featurette for ‘The Avengers’ from Disney and Marvel Studios.
In the clip called ‘Tension’ we hear from director Joss Whedon and stars Robert Downey Jr. & Mark Ruffalo as they talk about the tension amongst the group of superheroes.
Some good behind the screens footage of Whedon at work in the package too.

Very little is known about the plot but director/writer Shane Black has picked a villain and the casting process has begun.

Promo fatigue for ‘The Avengers’ is starting to set in but this morning Disney sent over a new clip from the film called ‘interrogation’ featuring the Black Widow (Scartett Johansson) that woke us from our promo slumber.
