    I haven’t seen this movie yet but I really would have thought by now people would be sick of super hero movies.

    I love super hero movies. Could watch them all the time. Avengers was pretty good but not the best super hero movie ever made. But solid enough. . Batman looks great and Superman looks pretty good. I am sick of 3d. I think that it takes away from the movie. It is also to dark.

    The movie’s awesome, it deserves a sequel. Hope it’s even better than the first. There’s no reason to believe it won’t be (for now).
