The Best (And Worst) Laid Plans Of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes
There was a scheme. A strategy. A … we guess you could call it a plan. Or even, an idea. To create a cinematic shared universe starring Marvel’s Avengers, in which the characters interacted, teamed up, split off, bickered, fought and reunited much as they did over their decades of comic history. Starting with 2008’s Iron Man, the Marvel Cinematic Universe started off confidently, and while there were a few missteps along the way, by the time we got to 2012, and Joss Whedon’s The Avengers, the age of Marvel on the big screen was well and truly here.
The stories within the Avengers movies are in a way the stories of the Avengers movies themselves. Hugely ambitious plans by powerful but flawed people, sometimes paying off, sometimes not. But we’re not here to talk about the relative merits of the MCU today. We’re not talking about Disney’s business strategy, the latest Disney+ offering, Kevin Feige or that guy playing Galaga.
We’re here to talk about the Avengers themselves – specifically, the various hare-brained schemes and plans that they’ve concocted over their many films together. From Avengers: Age of Ultron to Captain America: Civil War, to Infinity War and Endgame, there have been many big ideas. Sometimes these strategies have resulted in the world being saved. Sometimes they’ve resulted in things getting significantly worse.
But they’ve always been entertaining.
Strap in, and let’s get nitpicking.
