In my continuing blog to commemorate the release of The Avengers this week, I would like to pay tribute to Joss Whedon’s exceptional skills to writing sharp, witty and charming dialogues.
Trust me, we will get to hear plenty of them throughout the movie. Fortunately for us fans who have been drowned with plenty of trailers and teasers and TV spots leading up to the movie release, we were able to catch an audio glimpse and enjoy snippets of the colourful dialogue from the movie.
Here are some of my favourites…(source: Rotten Tomatoes)
Loki: Ooh, it burns you to have come so close, to have the Tesseract, to have power, unlimited power. And for what? A warm light for all of mankind to share? And then to be reminded of what real power is…
Nick Fury: Well let me know if real power wants a magazine or something.
Thor: He’s still my brother.
Captain America: Your brother killed hundreds of people.
Thor: He’s adopted.
Tony Stark: Doctor Banner, your work is unparalleled. And I’m a huge fan of the way you lose control and turn into an enormous green rage monster.
Loki: I have an army
Tony Stark: We have a Hulk!
Captain America: Big man in a suit of armor. Take that away and what are you?
Tony Stark: Uh, genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist…
Loki: How desperate are you that you’d call on such lost creatures to defend you?
Nick Fury: You have made me very desperate.
Captain America: Men who want to rule the world end up getting just six feet of it.
Tony Stark: If we can’t protect the Earth, you can be damn sure we’ll AVENGE it!
Are you ready?
