Marvel Movie Marathon Marvel's The Avengers


Thor’s brother, Loki, is creating havoc again when he gets access to the Tesseract (an energy cube with unlimited power). To fight this new threat, Nick Furry, director of S.H.I.E.L.D, recruits all the superheros to figth the newest threat.

Have I said yet how much I love Robert Downey Jr.? I really don’t think any other actor could have done the character of Tony Stark/Iron Man justice. This movie really showcases the comedic elements of all the actors. There are too many one-liners to count.
