Avengers (Assemble!)

Avengers t-shirt, which I bought at work the other day. 
Marvel's next superhero movie is coming out on May 4th. It's The Avengers and I'm so looking forward to it. (You may gather from this blog that I have wide-ranging tastes. It's not always Jane Austen for me.)

I loved the Iron Man movies. I have recently watched Thor and Captain America, so I'm caught up with the heroes of The Avengers.

(And the villain as well.)

And speaking of super hero movies, Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki, wrote this article about superhero movies for The Guardian recently.

Superheroes movies like The Avengers should not be scorned. 

I like this paragraph best, for clear reasons:

"Actors in any capacity, artists of any stripe, are inspired by their curiosity, by their desire to explore all quarters of life, in light and in dark, and reflect what they find in their work. Artists instinctively want to reflect humanity, their own and each other's, in all its intermittent virtue and vitality, frailty and fallibility."
