I love The Avengers. It's my favorite CBM ever. But I think Iron Man got a lot of focus. Of course he was the biggest money maker coming into it but Thor was the second biggest. Hopefully other heroes get a chance to shine more in the sequel (and I mean Cap and Thor not Black Widow).
Iron Man did get alot of focus in The Avengers, which is understandable because of how well the IM films have done. But what I don't understand is why Cap who's film made considerably less than Thor's got FAR more screentime and importance than Thor. I understand he's the leader, but both the main villain and the artifact he used came from Thor's world and should have gave him just as much focus as Cap and IM.
