Movie Scan – As a Marvel Universe Fan, i cannot express my Joy on finally getting to watch and enjoy this movie, Something we have been waiting so long for. The Avengers 2 is amazing in so many places but at times, it just misses the mark altogether. Hawkeye seems the most happiest of all the main characters to be there. Chemistry between Hulk and Black Widow is explored in this one and its an interesting Arc. Avengers 2 is a good movie, not a great movie. Don’t get me wrong, its not a bad movie but it could have been way better. It seems more like a stop gap movie rather than the game changer that everyone expected it to be. But, Its the Avengers and The Avengers needs must assemble. Time to go and watch it again.
