That\'s right, people, it's almost Avengers time! And it's time to get ready with biweekly Tweetwatches of the five films leading into the biggest movie of the summer. Here is the schedule for the most heroic Tweetwatches of all:
Tuesday, March 6, 2012 - Captain America - 8:30 p ET
Start things off with the World War II adventures of the nation's first super hero, Captain America.
Tuesday, March 20, 2012 - Iron Man - 8:30p ET
This is the movie that began it all for Marvel Studios, so join the fun of Robert Downey, Jr as Tony Stark and enjoy the ride.
Tuesday, April 3, 2012 - Iron Man 2 - 8:30p ET
Sequel time! Downey returns as Tony Stark in this film that is the key to understanding a lot of what the Avengers movie may hold.
Tuesday, April 20, 2012 - The Incredible Hulk - 8:30p ET
Probably the most overlooked of the Marvel films. It takes place the same time as Iron Man 2 and Thor, but offers some key glimpses at the future. Hulk Smash!
Tuesday, May 1, 2012 - Thor - 8:30 p ET
The final film in our Tweetwatch extravaganza is Thor, which unveils the villain of Avengers and brings us the comedy stylings of Chris Hemsworth as Thor.
If you've never joined Tweetwatches before, it's super easy to do. Here's the plan:
1. Get the DVD or Bluray so you can watch with us. Netflix, Redbox, whatever you need to do.
2. Make sure you have it on your calendar...click the links for each Tweetwatch to add it to your Plancast.
3. On the appointed evening, head over to our Friendfeed room.
4. At 8:30p ET, I'll tweet out the signal to push play, and we'll watch the movie together, while I fill you in on some of the little known facts about each film.
Bottom line...it's time to get ready for THE AVENGERS!!!! May 4, 2012 can't get here soon enough.
