Well, I saw and loved The Avengers - Joss Whedon really pulled it off. He managed to give every character their big moments and stayed true to the portrayals from the earlier films. It was amazing how well the story weaved in with all the solo films. I felt the Iron Man and Hulk action sequences were better than anything in either of their solo movies. The Hulk especially was done perfectly with a few moments that just bring down the house. Hawkeye was the only character that I felt got short changed, with the least amount of screen time and hypnotized state throughout much of the film. Still, the use of his trick arrows was very cool, and showed how an archer can fit in well with a team of heavy hitters. So when a Justice League film gets made (and the success of The Avengers makes that a lot more likely), hopefully we'll see Green Arrow on the team... at least in the sequel!
