The Avengers Series
I intended to write a review of Marvel’s The Avengers breaking it down and talking about its relation to Whedon’s oeuvre and why Whedon was a good choice of director, and how a guy used to dealing in TV – with its smaller scale, longer arcs, more primitive special effects, and different directorial challenges – brought all his skills to the big screen.
Instead, I’ve been avidly reading Todd Alcott’s spectacular series on the movie, and I think I’ll leave the link here and be done. It covers almost every base, and does it well. Even if you’re not a fan of superhero movies, or The Avengers, if you’ve seen the movie, the series is worth a read.
