Yes, Avengers is darker than I characterized it as, good point, however, if you feel your presumptions are more reliable than the words you're quoting then why bother quoting me at all?
Dude, let it go.
Everybody in this thread except you understands that Avengers is a four-color comic book movie, and that it showed the same level of personal violence as Star Wars, while making the mass casualties of warfare implicit, just like Star Wars.
Avengers would not have been "a better movie" with gore and blood and horrific deaths splattered across the screen.
