As spring bled into summer, we saw the release of the year’s most gargantuan mainstream hit. It was The Avengers (aka Avengers Assemble), in case you spent the last year roaming the arctic regions of Greenland; and even then, an amiable Inuit with a Hulk hoodie probably told you about it.   


The long awaited release of The Avengers saw cinema-goers turn out in droves. It was seven years in the making, and many hardcore fans had been waiting far longer than that, so thankfully, the majority were not left disappointed. Otherwise, who knows what level of extreme backlash could have erupted… although millions of geeks acutely describing their grievances in a respectful manner on film forums would have been the most likely scenario. Our very own Dan was delighted by what he saw, and described it as being ‘utterly stimulating, satisfyingly scripted and damn right faultless big screen entertainment. »
