@rorie: Safari.

Edit: It works now! Awesome and thanks to all of you who fixed it!

I can confirm that is indeed an issue that is happening.

I talked a bunch of shit about this movie when it was announced, so I'm eating some crow when I say that I enjoyed it. It was like a less serious version of Star Wars, pretty cool. I don't feel like it added a whole lot to their cinematic universe, but personally I prefer it that way. I have to wonder if they'll have a place in the Avengers movie. It would be weird to see Rocket Raccoon fighting alongside Captain America.

This movie actually adds more to the cinematic universe then any of the other films combined. We are introduced to (among other things) the Kree, the Novas and the Celestials. We are also given more details about the infinity gems and Thanos (who is pretty much guaranteed to be the bad guy in Avengers 3).

I suppose "added" was a bad word, what I meant was that it didn't "expand" on a whole lot. They introduced new stuff (like what you mentioned) but the stuff from the other movies was left pretty much alone (unless you count Thanos as a previously introduced element which I don't). There was no Nick Fury, no mention of other heroes, or anything like that. Whereas Iron Man 3 dealt with a lot of The Avengers fallout, and Winter Soldier had a lot to do with SHIELD. It was very much its own thing, which I liked.

There was a lot of other stuff that made it clear they were in the same universe, like the Dark Elf from Thor 2 being in a cage, the Tesseract and the Ether. There wasn't mention of the Avengers, but then there wasn't any need to. Those dudes are small time. I liked how Ronan straight up murders The Other (before he even had the Infinity Gem) and if we remember back to The Avengers Loki was scarred of him. It was a great scene that helped sort out the hierarchy of the villains we have seen so far.

But yea, by and large it was self contained which allowed it to create it's own identity and it didn't lean on any of the previous films for support.

Looks like a fun movie. If you (anyone) had to describe it to another superhero movie... would the closest be Hellboy 2? That's the vibes I got from the trailer and I can only hope it's as good as that movie.

After seeing the movie I got more of a slightly less serious Serenity vibe. It would not have been out of place to have seen Nathan Fillion dressed up in his Firefly outfit as a member of Yondu's crew.

Speaking of which, Micheal Rooker does a damn good job in this movie.

"I wish I could go into bars that are showing the World Cup game and just deport everyone." - Dan Ryckert

Yea, what an awesome standup guy.

As a hispanic also living in California who enjoyed watching the World Cup (sometimes even in bars) I found that unbelievably offensive and it kinda irks me seeing all the praise this guy has been getting. :/

@hailinel: Also a selectable name, selectable face model, hair and height, and can be melee focused instead of magic focused but they seem to have ignored that part.

They didn't ignore it for Villager, I doubt they will for Robin.

Speaking of new characters we should know all the Characters by the end of September since that is when Smash 3DS is out in Japan. Still hoping for Shriek.

I would never trust anything with "MLG" in its name.

I would never trust anything said by a guy that goes by "MariachiMacabre". I say you buy it duder.
