The beginning of the formal Avengers series of movies does not start lightly. Following quite shortly after the events of both Iron Man 2 and then immediately Thor, it begins with Loki (that’s right folks, he’s not dead, I bet you didn’t see that one coming) attacking a S.H.I.E.L.D. facility where experiments on the tesseract were occurring. He then converts Hawkeye and Professor Selvig as well as some randoms, and starts to cause problems.
The team slowly comes together on one of S.H.I.E.L.D.s floating fortresses, only to have that nearly fall from the sky during one of the battles., Then the battle moves to New York, to Stark’s tower, and really comes into full force when the Chitari begin to arrive.
The bit that I enjoy the most though isn’t actually part of the main movie itself, instead it’s actually the cut scene in the credits, showing Thanos properly for the first time. Now that Avengers Infinity War has landed we can now see exactly what comes of that encounter.
