Re: Avengers Assembled: News and Speculation - - - Part 69
Wow. I didn't realise what I said would prove quite so controversial. I loved the hell out of the Avengers, saw it nine times in the cinema and think it's one of the top three comic films ever made. That said, I think Whedon's other work is stronger. It's difficult to compare television with films admittedly being as the entire method of telling stories is different but I think his other projects have a better defined thematic through line and meatier character arcs.
I have no doubt though that the sequel will improve on the first in every possible way. The fact that Whedon seems to have complete control over the story and a generous amount of time to write and polish the script is very encouraging.
