Take 2: The Avengers

Endgame made me want to go back and see the… begingame?

It holds up well. The Avengers were a little less po-faced in 2012 and seeing them come together for the first time is still satisfying.

It does make me a little nostalgic for the early days of the Marvel movies. At the time people were worried about how 6 characters could share the screen, well now we can look back and laugh at those concerns because there’s a whole fucking legion of superheroes vying for screen time.

The Avengers is by no means a perfect film but the final action sequence is still one of better ones to come from the Marvel empire.
