Every accolade it got it fully and justly deserved. I remember how many people were banking on it "bombing", "failing" being "awful". A good majority of internet dwellers were so sure that Marvel/Whedon & company weren't going to be able to pull it off and lo and behold we're now at a point where it was so positively received that it's now being labeled as "overrated".
so many tentpole films were labeled as "Epic" in 2012. Avengers was the only film IMO that lived to that term. It has been one the few films, maybe the only one to live up and exceed the hype around it on every level in a big way. Yeah that article and poll calling it overrated sounds like sour grapes to me. If so then very funny.
