The Avengers

Yeah, it’s a pretty badass movie, and we are thankful for that, but we're more thankful for the fact that it got made the way it did (and took in enough money to be sure that films like this will be coming out for the foreseeable future). An ensemble flick like this was enough of a monetary risk, but to put geek-favorite director Joss Wedon in charge took nerves of steel (remember, he had directed exactly one movie going into this). Nice to see it work out big-time.
