It’s interesting. I can’t say I was looking forward to The Avengers, because that wouldn’t be true. After five movies of set-up, one brilliant, the rest terribly mediocre, I didn’t really have much faith that Marvel would succeed with such an ambitious project. Joss Whedon’s name gave cause to raise an eyebrow, but his most recent work (i.e. Dollhouse) doesn’t really instill a lot of confidence (frankly, I always thought he was a bit over-rated anyways). No, I would say that I watched The Avengers out of a sense of duty. I’ve seen The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Iron Man 1 & 2, and enough of Captain America to know that I didn’t want to sit through the whole movie. I have invested a lot of time, and I wanted to see what the payoff was supposed to be. Thankfully, it was pretty good.
