    The Avengers—movie review

    If every summer blockbuster or comic-book movie were as good as 'Marvel’s The Avengers' I’d greet the upcoming release slate with a lot more enthusiasm…but there aren’t many writer-directors as talented as Joss Whedon. Indeed, it’s the writing that sets this film apart...
