This happened exactly one week ago as my friend and I vent out our impatience at not being able to watch Marvel’s The Avengers along with the rest of the world (and being forced to follow the US release date by our capitalistic local movie distributor) on April 26th, 2012 in the form of severe LOKIWORSHIP and TWIDDLESTONING.
(Before anyone says anything, I’m aware that Tom Hiddleston’s fans are called Hiddlestoners but his Twitter username is twhiddleston so I use the Twitter name to create a verb that defines “to worship @twhiddlestone on Twitter”, which is “to TWIDDLESTONE”. And yes, it must be in caps because everything Loki should be CAPSLOKI. )
Also, yes, I’m a proper movie journalist. And yes, my friend is a proper movie journalist. We know movies and we write downright serious stuff on our magazine. But we’re also fangirls and we break out in squee some of the time (well, more often than not.)
@mavieenlair OH MY GOD! SO MUCH TOM HIDDLESTON STUFF TONIGHT. MY HEART CANNOT TAKE IT.

So, did everyone like The Avengers (or Avengers Assemble if you’re in the UK)?
I certainly did, although I’m sure Joss Whedon must have felt like he wanted to facepalm/headdesk many, many times during the making of this epic film. (Seriously, though, is he human? I don’t think he is. He’s probably Odin in disguise, but more badass.) Thank you, Mr. Whedon, for the extremely fun times. Complete review to be coming soon.
