"Whether Aunt May dies or not isn't the question. If she dies, does it mean anything beyond a brief sales spike because collectors/speculators think they'll be able to make a profit selling the book later? That is the question. Back when, Stan and company won our hearts and minds. I cared about Spider-Man and the other Marvel characters as though they were friends. I cared every time Aunt May got sick. That's what good creative work does."

I hope so. The scope of this thing is massive. Quite a juggling act. Will Whedon have enough time to give proper depth to these characters while trying to balance screen time? Look at something like Independence Day. That thing was like 150 minutes and the characters stll felt a bit hollow to me. Obviously alot of that comes down to writing and direction, but 135 minutes seems to be pushing it. We'll see.

So obviously more people have seen some of these films more then others and I have no doubt that the Avengers will leave IM2 is the dust. Relasing these individual franchises goes hand in hand with expanding the fan base leading up to the Avengers. I don't think you can assume people will know all of them. I'm certainly not saying it can't be done in 135 minutes or that the film won't be good. But if you are going for more then just an Independence Day-type spectacle and really want the audience (beyond the hardcore fanbase) to invest in these characters, then 135 minutes makes Whedon's job harder IMO.
