July 20, 2011

The Golden Briefcase - The Avengers

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by guest John Gholson from to go through their Picks of the Week, the newest in DVD & Blu-Ray releases, talk about the new trailers for Andrew Stanton's John Carter, Steven Soderbergh's Contagion and the prequel to The Thing and much more! The main topic of the night was a discussion on the impending saga of Marvel's The Avengers, in honor of Captain America coming out this weekend. The guys go over their thoughts on Marvel's treatment of The Avengers thus far and listen to John's perspective of the series as a comic reader.

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Tuesday nights starting at 7:30PM (PST). You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!

Take Thor out of the equation and I might take this Avengers movie seriously...

BinaryChaos on Jul 20, 2011


Sure there were issues but overall Thor was a good film! and Chris Hemsworth was perfect for the role, he played the character really well. I'm looking forward to him in the Avengers.

I agree, Thor is probably the hardest character to win over audiences. Hemsworth did a great job by making him a likable character without being too cheesey. It wasn't the most successful movie, but I thought it was really good.  You won't be complaining once you see Thor fight Hulk(hopefully).

Thanks Guys. Cheers!

This is a crazy notion, but I caught an updated Avengers cartoon marathon on Disney XD and all the little lights and whistles started to go off.  I'm actually getting excited for this.
