John Pollock, Wai Ting and special guest Brent Chittenden review the sixth Marvel Cinematic Universe film, The Avengers (2012).
We discuss the culmination of Marvel’s Phase One with a look back at its most ambitious crossover at the time, helmed by writer/director Joss Whedon. We examine the performances of every major character, recount our experiences watching the film during its original release, and discuss how well it holds up in 2019.
You can find more from Brent on his podcast, True North Nerds.
Synopsis from IMDb:
Loki, the adopted brother of Thor, teams-up with the Chitauri Army and uses the Tesseract’s power to travel from Asgard to Midgard to plot the invasion of Earth and become a king. The director of the agency S.H.I.E.L.D., Nick Fury, sets in motion project Avengers, joining Tony Stark a.k.a. the Iron Man; Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America; Bruce Banner, a.k.a. The Hulk; Thor; Natasha Romanoff, a.k.a. Black Widow; and Clint Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye, to save the world from the powerful Loki and the alien invasion.
