Movies based on comic books usually have similar plots, and Marvel’s “Avengers Assemble” is not an exception. However, where “Avengers Assemble” stands out is its first-class acting, special effects, and wits. Just like any great comic book movies, this film gives fans and moviegoers alike a lot of fun.
“Avengers Assemble” stars Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark slash Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff slash Black Widow, newcomer Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner slash the Hulk, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and Samuel L. Jackson as the S.H.I.E.L.D. leader Nick Fury.
Mark Ruffalo has a noteworthy acting performance in this film, wonderfully portraying how it feels like to be unable to control himself as the Hulk. Together with Robert Downey, Jr., their relaxed acting compliments the formal conduct by Evans and Hemsworth.
Avengers Assemble doesn’t have an overly aspiring plot and the ending is rather predictable. But the superhero team mash-up is so enjoyable that the viewing experience is of high quality. Much of the movie’s success can be attributed to Joss Whedon, the film’s direction and writer.
Joss Whedon is known more for directing TV series such as “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” but he was given the task to direct Avengers Assemble because he is capable of juggling a huge casts of characters. In addition, he knows a lot about Marvel comics, having written “The Astonishing X-Men.”
