The Avengers / Avengers Assemble (2012)
“I still believe in heroes.”
Building upon a series of successful Marvel superhero movies, The Avengers / Avengers Assemble brings together an unlikely group of ‘heroes’ and unites them against a common enemy. With so many egos at play this film could have easily fallen apart, yet it not only sticks together but forms a great action film… but what it is really telling us?
In times of trouble people flock to entertainment, as a release from the harsh realities around them. Is this part of the reason that ‘Avengers Assemble’ total worldwide earnings have already exceeded $1Billion. What is a hero anyway – Are we worshipping the silver screens image more than those around us? If so – whose image are we being presented with?
