Re: Avengers 2: Age of Ultron
I'm glad they are holding off Thanos for part 3, thus in the right path to potentially avoid the third act pitfall where they bloat the enterprise due to blowing their loads on the second one. This will help them avoid a Talia and Bane situation because there won't be a Talia and Bane situation, instead the Joker situation will close out the trilogy in a logically escalated manner.
Alan Moore on comics:
They've lost a lot of their original innocence, and they can't get that back. And, they're stuck, it seems, in this kind of depressive ghetto of grimness and psychosis. I'm not too proud of being the author of that regrettable trend.
