I got to go the a prescreening here in Denver Wednesday night for The Avengers. All I can say is, WOW! I’m not a Marvel fanatic, but have seen quite a few movies and have my favorites (hey, Iron Man… How you doin’? *wink wink*). What I love about this movie (besides the fact that I saw it in IMAX 3D) was that you don’t have to be a true fan to love the movie. Alternatively, if you are crazy a fanatic, you will love it even more! A hint to anyone seeing it, stay until the credits are finished. It will give you a big clue to the sequel. 😉

So, now besides doing a regular review, giving away the plot and boring you with press releases, I racked my brain at how to cover this movie. Since I have done about every Disney character I can think of with my fashion posts, why not continue but with an Avengers twist?! I took 3 characters from the movie, Captain America, Hulk and Black Widow and made 3 separate looks that were inspired by these characters. Let me know what you think!

Here is how they look in the movie…

Note to parents: This movie, while loud with a few intimidating characters and a couple scenes that make you jump, was very kid friendly. If your child loves superhero movies, this is perfect. There wasn’t any bad language that I noticed and no sexy scenes or half-nekkid women (sorry guys!). It’s PG-13, but I think it’s perfectly fine for kids 8 and up.



disclosure: I attended the press pre-screening of this film. No monetary compensation was made for this post.
