Yeah, I loved it. I read Marvel Zombies 2 today as well, both were good reads. But, I think all the books/issues beyond MZ2 isn't in the same continuation.

Now that they're done...
Perez Hilton reports that both Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale have given their blessing to whoever takes over the Batman franchise now that they are done with it.
"When I first met with Paul Levitz of DC Comics prior to Batman Begins, he explained to me clearly that Batman, of all superheroes, has thrived on reinterpretation and almost is strengthened by it. I'm talking about over the years in the comic books but also in the movies. So when the time is right, whenever someone does whatever the next iteration of the character is, they simply need to be true."
Meanwhile, Christian Bale gave his own take on the matter to MTV.
Bale said: "I'm very intrigued to see another interpretation of it at this point."
He also discussed his opinion of the various people to play Batman before he and Nolan gave their interpretation. He added: "There have been many wonderful ones. Adam West did it fantastically, spoofing it. I'm sincere. He really did. We return to the dark, which I'm told is what Bob Kane originally intended when he created this. Chris has managed to make it topical. With Bob Kane, it was topical as well. World War II was breaking out. So it would be very interesting to see what someone else does with the character. I'd be the first one there to watch."
There are spoilers following this sentence.
He also commented on how would react to Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Robin taking over, which was implied at the end of the film. Bale previously said he never wanted Robin in the Nolan films. He added: "I was talking out of turn somewhat, regardless of what my wishes would have been. It was not my choice and never was.

I also hate how you aren't allowed to get DLC from either game anymore.

Update: The Avengers 2 release date has now been confirmed to be May 1, 2015. Here's the short -- but very official! -- statement from Disney/Marvel:
"The Walt Disney Studios has announced a release date for Marvel Studiosí sequel to the biggest Super Hero blockbuster and third highest grossing film of all time, Marvelís The Avengers. Joss Whedon returns to write and direct the UNTITLED MARVELíS AVENGERS SEQUEL set for release May 1, 2015."
Note the "untitled" part...
Original Story: Now that Joss Whedon is back in the saddle to write and direct The Avengers 2, the question of when we'll get to see the sequel is inevitable.
And MTV thinks they know the answer. While talking to "several industry insiders," they've pegged May 1, 2015, as the date. Add it to your calendar now!
Or should you? We reached out to Disney-Marvel to see if this date was correct, but the only response we received was a "no comment." Take that as you likeÖ either the studio has nothing to say on the matter, or they can't say anything because MTV got it right!
But 2015? That's like three years from now. Can't Joss and the gang crank out an Avengers 1.5 by, like, next Tuesday. Please?

Also, I heard Guardians of the Galaxy will be in the MCU and after reading the latest Avengers Assemble issue where the Guardians team up with the Avengers to stop Thanos, that wouldn't surprise me if that is the plot of the next movie since Thanos was teased at the end of Avengers.

I also have been buying all the issues to Avengers vs X-Men and I now have all 10 (or 11 if you count the prequel issue), it is a pretty awesome story if anyone wants to check it out. I'm just waiting on 11 and 12 to come out.

Marvel has reportedly selected Super's James Gunn to direct Guardians of the Galaxy.
The Hollywood Reporter claims Gunn is the only filmmaker Marvel is now talking to about directing the sci-fi team flick slated for release August 1, 2014. THR says no deal is set yet with Gunn.
Other contenders are said to have included Bring It On's Peyton Reed (who was once attached to direct Fantastic Four way back when) and Half Nelson's Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden.
"Marvel is said to like Gunn's sensibility and his ability to mix comedy elements with action and horror, a quality he shares with The Avengers director Joss Whedon," according to THR.
Gunn also wrote and directed Slither. As a screenwriter his credits includes the superhero comedy The Specials (in which he also acted), as well as Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead, Tromeo and Juliet, Scooby Doo, and Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed.
I'm just to going to expect that this movie is going to suck and be pleasantly surprised if it doesn't.
