But we're not the worst

Amazing cameos in “The Avengers”

Okay, so maybe they don’t count as “cameos,” but I was stoked to see Ashley “Chrissy Seaver” Johnson as Waitress and James “Jim Walsh” Eckhouse as Senator Boynton in The Avengers, which I finally saw today.  (Sigh, how the mighty have fallen.)  Kudos for still getting work!

Other observations:

  • How on earth did Mark Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth get billing over Scarlett Johansson?
  • I could not believe that Cobie Smulders had such a huge role in this.  This is huge!
  • Please somebody explain to me how Chris Evans can be both the Human Torch AND Captain America in the Marvel world…
  • I could not believe that Loki (Tom Hiddleston) was F. Scott Fitzgerald in Midnight in Paris.  Didn’t realize he was English!

Very entertaining film.  I highly enjoyed Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, RDJ was obviously fantastic, Gwyneth Paltrow’s bare legs seemed oddly out of place, and I appreciated the schawarma reference.  Good job, Joss Whedon.  Already excited for the sequel.
