I mean it's a good movie and everything, but I don't think it's the greatest superhero movie ever made like some claim. It's nowhere near The Dark Knight trilogy in my opinion.

You can't compare The Dark Knight films to The Avengers. Aside from heroes they're two entirely different films.

its the equivalent of the first "blade" movie as a step forward. because of the success we can expect more crossover movies.

But are crossover movies really what we want? The Dark Knight trilogy did just fine without Superman, The Flash, etc.

was the avengers movie bad? what we want is the movies we always wanted in the past with the justice league etc without it being bad or horrible. btw the batman movies couldnt have had those other guys because no one had powers.

The Avengers wasn't bad, but it sacrificed story and character development for lots of action. That's the danger with crossovers: you get so many superheroes with each of them needing their "moment", that story has to take a backseat.

TDK trilogy was great because it wasn't overcrowded. This allowed for much more screentime to be spent on character development, which was something The Avengers couldn't afford. I realize that some people just want to see buildings explode, but the movie still needs to have some substance.

That's the main reason why I'm not a huge fan of crossovers.

who really needed character development? almost all of them had their own movie before that one or they were part of someone elses, not to mention the entire marvel universe.

I'm gonna be honest, I watch the solo movies for story

I watch the cross over for action, action and more damn action

There is nothing wrong with a movie that is all about action

A good point, but can we really say that a movie about action can be the greatest superhero movie ever made? I don't believe we can.

Depends what you want from your superheroes?

I want:

1. Action
2. Jokes and quirky characters (Stark, Loki)
3. Story

But it is all subjective at the end of the day

You're completely right when you say it's all subjective, and there's no doubt that The Avengers checked off the first two items on your list (the third is debatable). Yet it just seems like superhero movies as a whole are starting to cater to your demographic (more action, less story), and are moving away from mine.

It's something I don't quite understand, seeing how successful TDK trilogy was. You could even feel the shift in Man of Steel, which I thought was way too overcrowded with action scenes and could've used more character development (especially Lois Lane). And it'll only get worse with the Batman/Superman crossover and the eventual Justice League of America movie.

I guess I've still got X-Men to look forward to.
