Next up is the second installment of the Avengers. I am a fan of Joss Whedon, and his vision of the Avengers is one I am 100% on board with. This movie brings a much larger scale to the Avengers in more than one way. Most importantly, the dynamic between each character becomes even more robust with the addition of a few subplots that sprinkle the story with a little extra brightness. The humor felt in the first film is ever present in this sequel, and each character adds a great element to the overall enjoyment.
What I really liked was that much more focus was given to Hawkeye and Black Widow, allowing me to know and care about those characters even more. I will say, knowing that Civil War is swiftly approaching made the scenes between Downey and Evans all the more interesting. It felt as if we were over analyzing every word and action between them. I have picked out my team nonetheless, and I plan to reveal it in not too long.
Ultron was the best part of this film though. His performance as a villain was so chillingly calm, logical, and very witty. The movie trivia for this movie was very surprising. It’s hard to picture a voice like that coming out of a living man. Overall this movie is a high contender for my favorite Marvel Studios movie! Now, on to the next film!
