Avengers Assemble Review
By Simon Jago
To say I was excited about the release of Avengers Assemble would be an understatement. As well as working solidly on our parody of the film, I was really keen to see this movie. However, despite the united efforts of everyone’s favourite Marvel heroes, the lack luster individual on screen adaptations such as Captain America, and especially The Incredible Hulk were still fresh in my mind and so I wasn’t completely sold on the exciting trailers and viral marketing.
As these comic book stories go the plot is pretty simple. An evil doer wants to take over the world with an army of alien invaders. This time, like the original ‘Avengers’ comic, the villian is Loki (Tom Hiddleston), God of Mischief and brother to the heroic Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Together with the likes of Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and The Hulk played by newcomer to the Marvel franchise Mark Ruffalo, it’s up to these heroes to unite and defend the planet and in the words of Iron Man, ‘if we can’t protect the Earth, you can be damn sure we’ll avenge it’.
