Again I ask, has anyone seen Captain America yet? It's the best Marvel film to date!

Still planning on going, need to coordinate with another friend. One if these weekends!

Make sure you stay all the way to the end because there are two post-credit sequences. Also, AVOID SPOILERS! Some major stuff happens that you don't want ruined for you...

I'm dying to see it! Just have to coordinate...

They just did a two-part Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that tied in with events of the movie. Which is cool.

I was gonna comment on the earlier article about Marvel daring to open head-to-head against Supes vs. Batman, but why the hell shouldn't they? They're kicking so much ass with these movies, not just DC Comics but, as we see here, everybody. Good for them! These movies are great.

Make sure you do not watch the SHIELD episode, it will ruin Captain America's biggest surprise!
