People cool enough to get in to "Captain America: The First Avenger" on its premiere night sounded off on Twitter Tuesday. Kevin Smith and Edgar Wright spoke highly of the film, and Smith also had some praise for the "Avengers" trailer.
Mark Millar, meanwhile, had to turn down a visit to the "Avengers" set, and shared his sorrow with his followers. His reasons, an evaluation of Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man and pre-Comic-Con travel tweets await after the jump.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for July 20, 2011.
"Captain America" pt. 1: @ThatKevinSmith As expected, Johnston crushed CAPTAIN AMERICA. It's elegant & fun like his ROCKETEER. Evans was an ace Rogers/Cap. AVENGERS trailer killed.
-Kevin Smith, Writer ("Batman: The Widening Gyre," "Green Arrow")
"Captain America" pt. 2: @edgarwright 'Captain America' is so much fun. A proper ripping yarn. Go Evans.
-Edgar Wright, Director ("Scott Pilgrim vs. The World," "Shaun of the Dead")
"Captain America" pt. 3: @Paul_Dini Just back from Captain America premiere. Loved it.
-Paul Dini, Writer ("Detective Comics," "Countdown")
"Captain America" pt. 4: @brubaker Captain America movie was pretty much perfect. Ballsy, brave, fun as he'll. And Chris Evans is Steve Rogers thru and thru.
-Ed Brubaker, Writer ("Captain America," "Criminal")
@mrmarkmillar Deadlines so tight I had to turn down the Avengers set-visit in US next week too as I couldn't take 4 days off. 2 movies filming in Spring.
-Mark Millar, Writer ("Kick-Ass," "Wanted")
@JHickman Had no idea Spider-man was going to be the other guy from Social Network. What a great choice.
-Jonathan Hickman, Writer ("Fantastic Four," "The Nightly News")
@David_Hahn i am always second guessing myself as to what original art to take to sell at Comic-Con. I think this will be a "nudity acceptable" year.
-David Hahn, Artist ("Marvel Adventures: Fantastic Four," "Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane")
@cameronMstewart Guy standing in front of me let go of his luggage & it tipped over, the handle striking me in the balls #boink #Americasfunniesthomevideos
-Cameron Stewart, Writer/Artist ("Batman and Robin," "Sin Titulo")
@dresdencodak I firmly believe Wonder Woman is mainly such an iconic character because our standards for female superheroes are so low.
-Aaron Diaz, Writer/Artist ("Dresden Codak")
