But if Avengers mastermind Joss Whedon had his way, we would have seen a new Daredevil movie go straight to the theater. He pushed for a film rather than a TV series, and in a way, it’s all about Batman. Because it’s always about Batman. Read More »

For ten movies we’ve been waiting to see an entire movie of the Avengers being “The Avengers.” Sure, we’ve seen some crossovers. We’ve seen what the team could do when aliens invaded. We’ve even seen an alien pseudo-Avengers assemble in Guardians of the Galaxy. But up until Avengers: Age of Ultron, we haven’t seen what would happen if six amazing superheroes spent an entire movie together, working together.
For that reason alone, Joss Whedon‘s Avengers Age of Ultron is satisfying. Beyond that, it a falls a little bit short of its amazing predecessor. When compared to the first film, Age of Ultron is more even, constantly exciting and surprising. There are huge laughs, there’s drama, some real character development, and some absolutely crazy action. That consistency almost makes up for the fact the film lacks the “Wow” moments of the first movie and that brand new feeling we got the first time.
Nevertheless, Avengers: Age of Ultron is a blast. Read the rest of our Avengers Age of Ultron review below. Read More »
