    Prepare to laugh and have fun.

    Stay after the credits for a nostalgia laugh and a reference to an awful 80's movie that is actually a Marvel character.

    It's gotten to the point now that when I see people leave when the credits roll, I just shake my head. It's a Marvel Staple to have at least one scene mid- or post-credits!

    and this was one of the best ones but it went over the heads of a lot of people in there.

    I didn't stay for ASM2 or Winter Solider. I thought the mid-scene one for Cap was it and didn't realise ASM2 would have one since it's not MCU

    It was head slapping and funny at the same time.

    I laughed... heard several groans in the theater as well as the "sound" of puzzlement.

    As a character, he isn't any worse than a talking "raccoon" or sentient tree.

    I think people were hoping for a clue to the next Marvel movies and apparently there are clues in the clip that hint at other characters incoming besides just Howard.

    watched State of Play the movie with Crowe.

    Not a bad movie. Kept most of the elements that made the BBC mini series so great.

    Although they kept most all of the key plot devices from the ms they changed enough that it would have been a little confusing if I had not seen the ms. Of course it might have been confusing because I had seen the ms.

    they changed the evil from Big Oil to the Military Industrial Complex.

    I guess the most disappointing was Jason Batemans Dominic Foy character

    And the Della Frye character wore a bra. I much preferred the Kelly Macdonald braless version.


    anyways I would suggest the BBC miniseries if you have hours for a great drama, but the movie version was pretty real good also. Just no time was spent with side plots.

    I was slapping my head because it drudged up memories of that awful movie. I laughed, otherwise.
