Re: MCU: Phase II - Part 2
@jmc: Yes, Avengers would have been a success no matter what. The movie was too well written and executed not to be successful. However, I think you underestimate the SCALE of how successful it would have been, minus the solo films.
Whether the average audience member skipped a couple of solo films or not, the fact of the matter remains that these characters had been a part of the collective consciousness for the better part of 4 years.
