Wait, wait, no. That's not right. Did I say not a big deal?
What I meant to say was it is a huge deal. A GIGANTIC DEAL. This movie is second in my mind only to the upcoming Hobbit, and even then it's a very close second.
I am so excited.
So, for a basic overview:
The Avengers is basically the Marvel universe's version of the Justice League. Earth is going to crap thanks to an overreacting Norse God (Loki from Thor) and the government has to gather all of the super heroes together to save the day. It's basically taking all of the efforts from the recent Marvel movies and mashing them together to make the most epic movie of all time.
In this movie there are six Avengers.
|You may have seen him before.|
Thor (brother to Loki, incidentally)
and Black Widow
For some reason, that's where everyone stops. I've told you there are six of them, but most people ignore the sixth member of the Avengers. That would be Hawkeye. He's basically a badass version of Robin Hood, you see. He has perfect aim and a leather body suit.
|Look at that BAMF|
So next time you decide to discredit Hawkeye, remember this:
He used to run around in a flamboyant purple outfit.
