We’re very pleased to be joined by Comic Fan Josh to talk about what could be considered one of the best Superhero films to date.
The Avengers is the culmination of previous first stage Marvel movies including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and The Hulk. For Marvel fans, this was a film that was well worth the wait. Carried by excellent casting, and the exceptional writing, characterization and direction of Joss Whedon. The Avengers is perhaps the best Superhero ensemble movie ever made.
Aside from a few small technical elements, we found very little to criticize.
The Avengers is a great completion of the Marvel Stage One story line. While it is possible to watch The Avengers as a standalone movie, the viewer would be well advised to first watch Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and The Hulk. Get these movies under your belt, and The Avengers will shine even brighter.
