I'll tell ya what's wrong with kids these days! They're not nearly as excited about "The Avengers" as they should be.
That's the takeaway from the latest episode of "Kids React" from YouTube's Fine Brothers. As with every episode, kids ages 7 to 13 endure the latest in popular culture for the education and amusement of adults. Here, the kids are treated to one of the several awesome trailers from Joss Whedon's blockbuster super hero event (in theaters May 4), only to, for all intents and purposes, yawn.
Unlike any normal adult, these kids don't exhibit the normal reaction: Screaming "OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG" both in real life and on every possible avenue of social media. What's more, our comic book movies are being cleansed of cynicism and naughty bits so it's suitable for them ... and they don't even care!
Little do these non-adults know, for any big event movie, the trailers are as awesome as it ever gets. Once you've seen the movie, which can never ever live up to your months of salivating anticipation, it's all over.
Also, the little tykes exhibit a disturbing inability to differentiate between Marvel and DC!
Helen A.S. Popkin goes blah blah blah about the Internet. Tell her to get a real job on Twitter and/or Facebook. Also, Google+.
