With The Avengers arriving in theaters this week (in the United States, that is), we've finally arrived at the official start of the 2012 summer movie season. And if The Avengers is any indication, this summer is going to be one of the best we've seen in a long time. On paper, the films we're about to devour over the course of the next four months -- The Dark Knight Rises, Prometheus, Men in Black III, The Bourne Legacy, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, The Amazing Spider-Man, and The Avengers, just to name a few big ones -- all look extremely promising, which means we could have one heckuva entertaining summer at the movie theater.
Naturally, this week's episodes of Movies Chat will be about the summer movie season, as well as the season's opener, The Avengers, and we're kicking it all off today with our guest Cole Abaius, Managing Editor of Film School Rejects, for a discussion about our most anticipated summer movie.
Listen to our chat below and let us know what you think. I've also included this episode's supplemental materials for you enjoy after listening.
