What would have happened if Avengers failed?
I think it's not a stretch to say all the comic book movie moves we're seeing right now is because of how successful the Avengers were. It wouldn't be out of question to think that, if the Avengers had failed, we wouldn't have gotten Guardians of the Galaxy, Agents of SHIELD, or maybe even this new Agent Carter TV series, and that's just from the Marvel side. Fox may not be doing X-Men DOFP and planning to expand the X-verse with X-Force, and Sony may not be planning to form a Sinister Six. And with DC, we might not have been getting Batman/Superman or an expanded DC universe.
So, like they thread title says, what do you think the scenario would have been if the Avengers failed?
