Marvel’s “The Avengers” isn’t the Second Coming, though it feels like it’s been in the works almost as long as, but as far as big summer entertainment goes you’ll rarely get much better.

For those who may not have been following along, the Powers That Be of the Marvel films have been tracking the comings and goings of the newly immerged super powered people like Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo, replacing Edward Norton), approaching them in the form of...

  Cause I almost never vote on historical importance or how movie "redefined something"
I watched it years ago. ANd I remember I wasn't enjoying it that much as Guardians of Galaxy or Winter Soldier
And as much as I loved watching Guardians second time and would love to watch Winter Soldier second time I don't actually care about rewatching Avengers. Hence ****

Natasha Romanoff: These guys come from legend. They're basically gods.
Steve Rogers: There's only one God, ma'am, and I'm pretty sure he doesn't dress like that.
