This is josh whedon and like everything new these days that just released gets all hyped up. I still vividly recall Serenity ah's and ooh's and being so let down later. I'm not going through that again and keeping it real.
& Serenity was great! Though, much better if one had seen the series Firefly beforehand and already knew the characters and their history; Helped much better in understanding the context of everything. I had already loved the characters going in so the movie was great, but am confident I still would have thought it was quite good without having seen the series first. It stilll has an 89% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes and an above 80% critic rating. So, most were not let down. Sorry that you were. I definitely was not.
Whedon makes gold, but as with anything there will be a percentage that doesn't like it or appreciate his work. That goes for everyone and everything in life though. Hopefully The Avengers will meet or exceed your expectations. If not, it's already exceeded many others and I am confident it will meet my very high expectations....simply because it's Joss Whedon writing AND directing. Every thing I've seen him do both for has been wonderful, always had great unique dialogue, heart and is fun, funny and/or intense.
