The Avengers: All the Non-Spoilers You Need to Watch For

*Disclaimer: The following are non-spoilers*

What follows will contain no references to events or plot development, only subtle gags and blink-and-you-miss-it throw-aways. If you don't even want those, bugger off.

Okay, first off, what everyone always needs to know: Yes, you need to sit through the credits. 

All the credits. There's– there's no easy way to say this. Joss Whedon must have awoken from a dead sleep sweating and panting with his own brilliance, because he did two. Well, sort of. One and a half. Look, just sit in your seat until the lights come up, okay?

Now then, let's move forward. Other items to watch for:
  • Stan Lee: Yes, he's there. Yes, speaking; one line. Late in the movie.
  • Thor Easter eggs: Yes, a few of them come up.
  • Coulson: Adorable.
  • Joss Whedon Dialogue: Amazing.
  • A certain tower.
  •  Grand Central Terminal. Related: a quiet moment therein.
  • "Puny God."
  • Schwarma.

Listen, I pretty much went into this deciding that no movie on Earth could possibly live up to all the hype surrounding it. I also preemptively decided this movie did.

I wasn't wrong.
