Yeah - not the most famous villian to the uninitiated. Its as if Whedon & Feige played the full geek card hand with that one.
Saw the film on Friday (early afternoon 2D showing - not super crowded). There was a group of 5-6 "30 yr old virgins" behind the missus & I. An intriguing geek conversation happened behind us before the movie and during the trailers (we got new TDKR, new Spidey & Prometheus previews). I thought I
was fairly steeped in comics/movie lore....
When the end credits reveal occured, one of them shouted out the name of the villian excitedly.
I later related to the missus who the character was, partially from memory - mostly from Wikipedia during some after movie drinks. My wife joked ..."knowing that level of comic book villian probably also acts as a shield for one's virginity. In your defense, honey...you did have to use the Internet a little". God I love that woman....
Oh yeah.....both a great Marvel flick, arguably the best to date. And also just a solid piece of summer entertainment. Think I may see it again before it leaves the multiplexes.
As to said scene & reveal....I wonder if it may also be acting as a preview/setup of sorts for THOR 2?
