2012 was the culmination of 4 years of Marvel, shared universe filmmaking. The team up film, the likes of which had never been seen before. Other studios have been rushing to catch up to this revolutionary idea. It was a special moment in time, a moment that I don’t think will ever be captured again, a Star Wars level event in cinema. The Avengers brought together the stars of 4 blockbuster movies… and a replacement Hulk. With the master of cult film and TV onboard as writer/director, a fanboy favorite, Mr Joss Whedon, the world was primed for a cinematic event sure to blow our minds. So, a few billion dollars and some critical acclaim later, we’re left with a film, that no Marvel film since has been able to surpass, but how does it hold up 5 years in?
