Avenger Fans Assemble!

by - 3:18 PM


It's that time of the year again. The birds are singing, flowers are growing and I am fangirling at the top of my lungs all day long. Why am I fangirling? Are you seriously asking that? Of course it is because the endless wait finally came to an end last night: the Avengers: Age of Ultron premiered in the Netherlands!
It was my first time going to a Marvel movie on opening night and sure, I'd expected it to be a nerd fest, but this exceeded all expectations.

I went with a friend who's just as much of a Marvel fan as I am. In fact, we became friends because she has a Captain America bag and I freaked out over it. Last night we went to Age of Ultron together at our fangirly best, she with her Captain America bag and I with my Captain America top. I have to admit that I felt a bit unsure about waving my fandom flag so proudly, but as I got to the cinema I saw people who took it way farther than I did. I knew it'd be a great night when my friend spotted a girl in Hulk shoes, wearing a Thor cap and a sweater with almost every Marvel character on it. 
Suddenly I didn't feel bad about my overexcited posing in front of an Avengers cut-out anymore.

The theater was full of excited whispers when the movie started, but as soon as it began you could hear a needle drop. The awesomeness came and never before have I been so emotionally involved in a movie. I promised you guys there'd be no spoilers and there won't be any spoilers. This is just preparation for the awesomeness you'll see when you get to see the movie!

So what can you expect?
Well, Ultron and his robots are creepier than a zombie apocalypse. 
Hawkeye finally gets some screen time without being lame and seemingly useless.
Captain America is being noble as usual. A bit too noble at times.
Iron Man will make dirty jokes. 
Black Widow's back ground story is partly revealed.
Thor still doesn't impress me.
The Hulk, well, he smashes a lot of things. Even more than usual.
The twins will freak you out.
Stan Lee does a cameo (what a suprise).
Oh, and most important: everything that can go BOOM, will go BOOM.

By the end of the movie I was heart-broken, I had laughed out loud and cried a little behind my huge IMAX 3D glasses. I'd become overattached to yet another finctional character, I'd started shipping yet another fictional couple and I'd fallen in love with Captain America all over again.
I had goosebumps and was totally speechless, which doesn't happen all that often. The theatre exploded with applause when the movie had ended, but no one left. All the real Marvel fans relaxed into their seat and waited for the extra scene to come. And when it came, we all spent five more minutes in the theater. We were shocked. No one, I repeat, NO ONE saw that coming...
My fellow Avenger fans and I left the theatre in a stunned silence. However, that didn't last long. Soon the air was filled with spoilers and people (like me and my friend) were seriously thinking about catching the next one straight away. 
So if you're doubting about going to the new Avengers movie, stop doubting. Just go. Now! You won't want to miss any of the awesomeness in the movie, or any of the geekiness you'll see at the theatre!

Stay Awesome!

  1. EEEEEEKKK! I can't wait to see this movie!! I LOVE the Avengers! I love how you wrote this post!
    Mae :)

    1. Thank you!
      You're gonna LOVE it so much! It's so amazing :D

  2. Lucky! The movie doesn't premiere here until May 1st and even then I would have to wait another week to watch it! Iron Man and his dirty jokes though... Like, I usually hate dirty jokes but the way he does them is funny. And Thor is technically a Norse legend. He's a weird dude.

    xoxo Morning

    1. I heard that it premiers on May 1st in the US. Pretty weird. I noticed a lot of people speaking English at the cinema, so maybe people came all the way over to Europe to see it before it premieres in other countries :P
      I'm used to dirty jokes, but Iron Man's jokes are just so much better than the ones my classmates make.
      I loved Thor when I was a kid - the Norse legend version that is. I didn't know he was also a superhero until I was 15 and by then it was too late for me to make the transition to liking superhero Thor. I'm also not a big fan of Chris Hemsworth, so that doesn't help either.


    I cant wait to see it!

    1. Believe me, it's worth the wait!

  4. I cannot wait to watch the film! This just made me even more excited for it :D

    1. Hahahaha, hoped to get some people even more excited, so... mission accomplished! :P

  5. I WANT TO SEE THIS MOVIE SO BAD!!! And the worst part is that I actually work at a cinema and I'm letting people in to watch the movie and sometimes I even have to walk in during the movie and ahhh from what I've seen it looks amazing and I've even seen part of that end scene which sucks coz I'm pretty much spoiling it for myself. Do you know the struggle of hearing the beginning fight scene and having to close the doors and walk away :( Haha and I was working the first showing so I saw the outfits as well.

    1. How can you keep working there? This sounds like pure torture! Just kidding, I wish I could work at a cinema, but man, it would kill me to have to close the door on the Avengers every time without being able to see the movie.
      The outfits were hilarious :P

  6. Okay, you've officially convinced me I need to see in INSTANTLY. It came out here in Australia but I haven't found the time to watch it yet. :(

    1. Go see it NOW! It's so freaking awesome, you have to see it!

  7. I haven't been to any opening night of any movie before, but I'd definitely love too, the way you described it seems like so much fun! Everyone seems so excited about it. Looks like you had a great time. :) Thanks for not giving away spoilers, I'm only watching Age of Ultron on Monday, and I can't wait! I don't think I'll be catching it in 3D though, that would've been so cool too. :)

    1. You should definitely go to an opening night. I went to opening night of Mockinjay too, but there were less awesome fans there. If you want to see a geek assembly kind of opening night you'd have to go to a Marvel movie :)
      I didn't want to say anything about what happens exactly in the movie, because the Netherlands was one of the very first countries to see the movie. I didn't want to be the person who spoiled it for the whole freaking world XD
      Monday, that's tomorrow! You're going to love it!

  8. Yeeesssh! :D :D
    I love these superheroes! (Except Thor, can't underline that too much, stop messing up Norse mythology!)
    I'm super excited for this movie!

    1. Finally someone who isn't a big fan of Thor either! The first time I saw a Thor movie I was constantly telling my TV that it was way different in the myths :P
      Only thinking about this movie makes me excited again ^-^


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good! Wait, no, I mean: I solemnly swear that I will answer each and every comment ;)
