Hell, just within the MCU, Iron Man 2!

I say again it felt less like a story and more like a transition for future solo movies.
So in that respect, really like any Marvel big story event. Comics accurate!

I always knew AoU wasn't going to be as "good" as the first film was. You don't capture lightning in a bottle twice, after all.
But the dip in quality was less severe then The Dark Knight to The Dark Knight Rises or other franchise sequels I can name. It did feel more like a transition piece then a stand alone movie...which is fine. They've been spinning the wheels on Thanos for years now, it's about time to start getting the Infinity War into gear.

Regarding Thanos, a lot of people are saying that we're now into the territory where he's the most dangerous thing for this franchise in a real world sense. We're coming up to like a decade of hype for this character and him finally taking direct action and that's seriously going to invite inflated expectations. Each one of these movies kinda has to outclass the previous one and Infinity War has to be this mindblowing epic by that scale. To say nothing of what they'll do if they continue after that fact.

Can the next credits scene be him using the Gauntlet as a baseball mitt while him and blue Karen Gillan play catch on his asteroid?

It was a nice change of pace in terms of movies for Avengers to give Hawkeye a great family, and NOT instantly kill him for maximum shock feels.
I was sad fpthat Quicksilver died though.

Read the thread and I gotta wonder if I'm the only one who didn't think Hawkeye was going to die. I didn't see Quicksilver's death coming but Clint's family had the reverse intended effect of me figuring he'd survive instead of die for maximum audience sadness.
I wasn't surprised he didn't die simply because it would have been too cliche if he had.

There is a Captain America one as well. Creepy with just a slight bit of evil bad guy musing goodness (or such).
In memory of Joelle Lawson: 1986-2004 A great friend to all. Rest in peace my friend.
In memory of Roscoe Brown: a loving grandfather who always tried to give his best for his family.

Rewatched this last night, It's actually much better second time around without the hype attatched to it. Having said that it's grown on me:
The deleted scenes on the DVD - the Quicksilver one would have been really good in the film. So would the thor one, instead of the scene we got. Yeh it was a slightly cheesy possession, but it was a less dorky way of inserting the infinity gem tie together.
Ultron still doesn't have enough menace. He looses it to snark. If he had laid waste to the team in Wakanda himself it would have worked, but instead he gets blown up by Sark and SW takes them out. As a result he runs.
you still get tired sitting through it. it has so much stuff you have to focus to keep on top. I still can't take to vision.
Definately better than I rememvber though
