Marvel just released a new movie poster for the upcoming Avengers movie and it looks like Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson are ready for action!

Thor, The Black Widow, and Captain America all look like their movie counterparts in the art poster.  The Hulk, Iron Man, and Hawkeye...not so much.

It is a very, very cool movie poster and for someone who likes comic books still, I am loving the poster and cannot wait for the movie.

What do you think of the new poster?-DocFB

Diagnosis:  Comics are still cool......

The Dr. Recommends “Captain America” As It Takes #1 At Box Office

We saw "Captain America: The First Avenger" this weekend and loved it.  We have not seen Thor although we know we need to before "The Avengers" movie comes out.  Chris Evans was the right choice.

We thought we would be bored with a super hero movie taking place in the 1940's but we were not thanks to a brilliant script and fantastic acting.  Hayley Atwell was sheer hotness as Peggy Carter, Steve Rogers/Captain America's love interest in the movie.  Tommy Lee Jones, Stanley Tucci, Neal McDonough, and Sebastian Stan were stellar as well.

Captain America took the box office with around $60 million, thwarting Harry Potter which took around $50 million.  Coming in 3rd was "Friends With Benefits" taking in about $18 million dollars.  We have a feeling good word of mouth will keep FWB in the box office run this weekend.  Just watch.

Did you see Captain America this weekend?  What did you think?-Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  Dr. Recommends Highly

Diagnosis:  No Wonder DC Needs To Reboot!

Ryan Reynolds has just been cast as "Green Lantern" and I must say I am way surprised.

It's a great pick but, what about his recurring role as "DeadPool" in all the Marvel movies upcoming?  With "Green Lantern" being a DC character, could it be a conflict of interest? We are glad he won, I want to make that clear.

It was between Ryan, Bradley Cooper and Jared Leto?  Jared leto? Seriously?

The contract has not been signed yet.  Reynolds was signed a few years ago to be "The Flash" but plans for that fell through.  Will it happen again with "Green Lantern" or will green prevail over yellow?-Dr.FB
