Marvel comics just keep on going with this series that should have been shelved. Add a villain, add new heroes and the story continues on for eternity while these actors and directors make far too much money, shame on Hollywood's greed and the industry.

This movie was good, but since it focused on the original Avengers team for the most part, why no Ant-Man and Wasp? I also would have liked Ultron as the villain instead of Loki, who should only be in the Thor movies.

good mmovie

In 2007, Marvel was a fading commodity, still reeling from the disappointment of Spider-man 3. Then Marvel announces Iron Man. Iron Man? Really? A b-tier superhero who had a middling cartoon in the 90s. What was Marvel thinking?
Then Iron Man struck gold, put Robery Downey Jr. back on the map, and began the biggest fad in movies in twenty years: post-credit scenes. Marvel planted its feet and made a big gamble: we are building a universe.
Fast-forward through four more mostly good to great movies, and we get The Avengers. The build-up was huge, the movie was thrilling, and the payoff was bigger than ever. This movie was the biggest ever when it came out and broke records, all of which it deserved and more. Better yet? An even bigger post-credit scene teasing the biggest villain in Marvel and the greatest fight yet to come.
In hindsight, it's not even the halfway point, at the rate we're going. Seven years later, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe has grown into a massive hit, and it all began with the build-up to Marvel's greatest team. They might not protect the world, but be sure they'll avenge it.

This movie is an excellent introduction to the Avengers Initiative and I have very little complaints about it. It was well written and had numerous memorable moments that set the tone early on in the movie. I enjoy it very much and have no issue with rewatching it from time to time.

I checked out this movie over the Holidays when I had company in my home. It kept the kids very entertained while we were busy cooking and chatting. It is a fun story of friendship and learning about other people's strengths and weaknesses. Do Superheroes really have weaknesses?
