We are on the Road to Avengers: Infinity War! We complete the first phase of our journey this week with Marvel’s The Avengers. We discuss what it was like before the film became a pop culture phenomenon, back when people were still skeptical of Marvel Studios. We also reflect on our first viewing of the film and its enduring legacy not only in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but in superhero movies and all of cinema.
