I was so waiting for this moment that I thought I would die before it came. I was waiting for the Avengers to assemble!
So all of you who were wondering about the existence of Nick Fury in all those Avenger movies like Iron Man, The Hulk, Thor et al, Director Joss Whedon has come to your rescue and repay you for waiting so patiently for the answer. He gave you The Avengers!
So Nick Fury from S.H.I.E.L.D. was headhunting, he was preparing for a battle. And he did prepare well. So when Loki, son of Odin and the adopted brother of Thor, came with his minions called Chitauri from the other world to destroy mankind, Nick Fury assembled a team of superheroes to fight back. And what a team it was, there was the Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and the sexy and suave Black Widow.
The movie was a visual treat, to say the least. The scene where the Hulk fights the Leviathan from outerspace would make you go *hoot* *hoot* inside the darkened theater. It was a great moment when the Iron Man said to the Hulk:
Iron Man: Hulk?
Iron Man: Smash!
Hulk: Grrrrrrrrr (with a priceless smile).
And when Hulk smashed Loki calling him a puny God, that is sure to put a smile on your lips.
And finally, as with all good superhero movies, the Avengers won! Thor took Loki back to where he belongs, and the Avengers all went their own ways, only to return back if humanity is ever threatened again.
So what made The Avengers so different from other superhero movies? Well, to begin with this movie was not about one superhero. But X-Men did that too didn't they? Well, they did and they succeeded but, honestly, apart from Wolverine, which of the X-Men would you consider to be as popular as all of these superheroes from Avengers are!
But I don't think Marvel should stop here, rather they should venture on something more, something huge. How about The Avengers meet the X-Men? Or maybe, just maybe, you know high hopes, The Avengers team up with, say, Batman and Superman!
Anyway, who knows what the future holds for us. But for now, bask in the epic that Marvel has given us, enjoy The Avengers!
Oh! One more thing before I leave, Rest In Peace Agent Phil. We will miss you, and so would Captain America.
