Like the other films will have a gratuitous slow mo shot of a womans ass walking up some stairs... then when the action starts tries to play it straight and overly dramatic.
^ You realize all of that applies to Avengers...

Still, thanks for explaining. I wasn't aware people actually wanted self aware action outside of jackie chan movies and even then.

Making this action self aware(like heroes walking away from explosions in a self aware fashion) will be the fastest way to lose GA money imo. Then again, I suppose everyone thinks they know best.
