Assemble! The 8 Best Moments In The Avengers

Just over a week over ago, my university€™s Student Union fulfilled the dreams of pretty much every Marvel nerd on campus by showing a thirteen hour marathon of Marvel films culminating in a screening of The Avengers. A few people I know showed sheer dedication by sticking around for all six films but I wimped out and only showed up for the last two: Captain America and The Avengers. The Avengers was one of quite a few films that I didn€™t get round to seeing this summer so I never really got the hype surrounding it. But when I watched it, I was completely blown away. So, as a mark of my newfound respect for The Avengers, here are what I consider to be its eight best moments...

8. Hulk vs Loki

In this scene, Loki€™s ego gets the better of him as he tries to shout down the Hulk. Obviously, it doesn€™t work and the Hulk tosses him round like rag doll with no effort whatsoever. The look on Loki€™s face as well as his feeble little whimper after being beaten, and the Hulk muttering €œpuny God€ is an excellent finish. It€™s just a shame that this is Loki€™s defeat even though it€™s a scene that€™s mainly played for laughs, and that he was previously showed as such a consummate villain. Nevertheless, it€™s still an excellent scene. http://youtu.be/z4gN_yc_7ug

7. The Avengers Assemble

The scene where the Avengers have gathered onboard the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier for the first time is an excellent scene for character development. It€™s largely played for laughs with Iron Man getting all of the best gags but the others get a few decent quips in. Other than that, it€™s the scene that first gathers everyone together and exploits the clash of both personalities and backgrounds for drama as well as comedy. If I had to criticise it, I€™d say it was a little slow story-wise but the jokes are good enough and the dialogue has enough pace to keep it from being boring.
