Please think of a movie where Samuel L. Jackson is the lead role that’s made millions and millions of dollars…I’m having a difficult time.  Now think of money making franchises that Samuel L. Jackson has had a supporting role in.  Star Wars the prequels.  Jurassic Park.  Kill Bill.  The past 5 or so Marvel movies, and then include the actual Avengers movie.  We’re talking millions here since the 80s and 90s all the way to now.  Entertainment Weekly and I’m entirely sure a large number of other websites have put the numbers together and deemed Mr. Jackson the highest grossing actor.  And rightfully so.  His movies are making so much bank, and he’s not even the lead character.  It has to be something about casting him as a guiding side character that is the key to making a multi-million dollar movie.  Definitely.

If there was ever a way to start off a very promising blockbuster summer, The Avengers was a proper way to do it.  If there are any movie/Marvel skeptics out there, it takes a lot of stubborn ignorance to deny the marvel (Oh lulz I get it!) of what has been accomplished here.  Starting in 2008 as a vague idea that may or may not form came a movie with so much star power and ambition that it was easy to dismiss this as an action-oriented ‘Valentine’s Day’ that had so many A-listers that each one would eventually be fighting for star power and screen time.  Not only this, but there are 60 years of myth-lore and a rabid fan base that had to be dealt with for this movie to be successful.

It’s almost amazing how it all turned out.  In 4 years, Marvel meticulously planned in each of their corresponding movies how they would  set up this behemoth.  Without these previous movies, character development of these famed heroes would be lost.  So after countless infamous post-credit cut scenes in The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, and Captain America, Joss Whedon delivered what was thought to be the impossible.  A coherent, action-packed, well-written 2 and a half hour ride that perfectly balances its down to Earth heroes and deliciously evil villain despite an ambitiously star-studded cast.  Slight spoilers.

Since Disney now owns Marvel, Disney’s D23 Expo has released the first piece of concept art for the upcoming 2012 film.  I don’t usually do two posts in a day, as I’d run out of fresh material, but this is just too cool to pass up.  Enjoy close ups after the jump.
