Marvel’s Avengers Assemble


I’ve been looking forward to the release of Marvel’s Avengers Assemble since 2005 – when the franchise idea was very first announced.

You see, I’ve been a huge fan of comic book films since I first saw 1966’s Batman: The Movie as a toddler, soon after I saw Richard Donner’s Superman and I’ve been sold on them ever since.

But the idea that the Avengers Assemble could not only be made as a stand alone movie, but as part of a franchise that has so far (including Avengers Assemble) spawned six big budget films was a nearly mind blowing concept for the world of cinema.

It’s worth pointing out that only the Star Wars, Harry Potter and James Bond series have had these many films in one franchise however only one of the series I’ve just mentioned – namely the Harry Potter films are as closely connected as the Avengers Assemble films are.

So when I sat down in the cinema last night to see Marvel’s Avengers Assemble for the first time in 2D (I’ll be seeing it in 3D next week) I was pretty eager to see what the film had in store.

Turns out anyone who worried that the film might not live up to expectations did so needlessly, as the film is as close to perfect as anyone can make in the genre.

The explosions are big, the jokes are expertly timed and it’s clear to tell that Avengers Assemble has been made with not only a lot of money, but with a lot of heart by someone who truly loves the source material too.

Joss Whedon has created one of the best comic book films, one of the best action films and one of the best blockbusters of all time.

For other releases in the comic book genre (The Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel) the bar has been set very, very, very high and I for one cannot wait to see how other films in the genre match up to Marvel’s Avengers Assemble.
