MCU in Review Issue No. 5: “The Avengers” (2012)

Devin and Teddy got their duo together to celebrate the premiere Marvel team uniting on screen for the first time. That’s right, MCU in Review closes out the MCU Phase 1 by digging into the pop culture behemoth The Avengers (2012).

After four hit-and-miss entries defined by origin stories, Marvel‘s first team-up movie brings Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow, The Hulk, Hawkeye, Nick Fury, and Maria Hill together for the first time. In order to do the project justice, Devin and Teddy dispel with the usual categories in favor of ranking the Avengers entrances, and then parsing through the rest in something akin to a lightly controlled series of rolling tangents. So plug in those headphones and get comfortable for a little Loki, a smidge of spandex, and a whole lot of Hulk-smashing.If you like what you hear, make sure to follow Portland Film Review on all the socials.
