A quick note for those of you like me out there in readerland who find yourself excited for the upcoming direct to DVD release of Marvel'sUltimate Avengers: a short video clip has been made avalible to fans, and SuperHeroHype has your exclusive look at it. I suggest you click here and take a look at it, if you are anxious for a solid idea of what the film will be like.
My take is that this sucker plays very much with a late-80s/early 90s cartoon feel on a pumped up budget. Something about the nature of the characters, the action scenes, and the voice acting take me back to the old G.I. Joe and cartoon X-Men days. The look is rather different, but the feel is the same. I stand by my opinion that this movie will be a fun little distraction for Marvel fans- obviously it is not a high-end blockbuster, but it's not pretending to be. And c'mon...it's Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor. What more could a nerd want?*
*Okay, so maybe in an ideal world it would be standard Avengers and not Ultimates. But still, both are fun.
