Next week, The Avengers hits theaters as the culmination of a successful campaign designed to bring Marvel's most popular characters and Hawkeye to the big screen. After four years and five movies of buildup, there's a lot of excitement surrounding the project. Sure, the movies you've seen h
Following last week's premiere of The Avengers in Hollywood, many spoiler hungry fans have already learned the identity of Loki's mystery army in the film. But guess what? We're going to keep on calling them "Loki's Army" until the movie comes out in a small effort to keep your potential moviegoing experience intact until May 4. That sa
