But in 2008, The Dark Knight met with a serious contender: Iron Man, the first movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe which was followed by The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, and finally, the movie I will review today in honor of Stan Lee: The Avengers.

The Avengers is the first team-up film in the MCU and follows the crew as they argue for a while before teaming up to fight some aliens that are invading Earth thanks to Loki opening up a portal.

Needless to say, this film is a technical triumph for director and co-screenwriter Joss Whedon, but what I loved most about this movie is the very human faces the screenplay puts on these superheroes....we are never allowed to forget that, except for Thor, these are all human beings who bleed and feel pain and most importantly, are not always comfortable with being a superhero.

While Iron Man started the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this was the film that came through on the promise of it, seeing the characters from all the preceding films (Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Captain America: The First Avenger, and Thor) come together as a team in this huge ensemble superhero action film.

The rest of the film just feels like every superhero movie out there - there's neither light nor shade, nothing surprising or unpredictable.

The agency is a who's who of Marvel Super Heroes, with Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow.

I saw The Avengers at the tail end of one of the Marvel Movie Marathons across the country, an exhaustilirating (a word I just made up) event which saw each post-credits tease followed by new opening credits, each film easter-egged on in an inexorable march towards midnight.

And as far as comic book movies go this is just about the holy grail; getting Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk etc all in one movie?

While the film is full of action with a balanced story that doesn't tire before the film comes to a elegant conclusion, it would have been a welcomed addition of the film itself could have received a more mature rating.
