*This post contains significant spoilers for Avengers: Age of Ultron
Avengers: Age of Ultron is poised to be one of the most successful films of the year — if not all time — but its appeal goes beyond just being a big hit at the box office. It’s a legitimately enjoyable and worthy followup to the massively successful The Avengers (2012) that keeps the Marvel Cinematic Universe trucking along on its path to world domination (well, the box office part of it anyway). It’s a film that’s almost too busy, as it definitely takes more than one viewing to catch all the action and quips the film throws at the screen. Give that Age of Ultron is a huge superhero extravaganza, it goes without saying that it has a lot of cool moments — almost too many to keep track of, really — but the following 10 definitely stand out.
10. Avengers Assemble
Avengers: Age of Ultron gets bogged down at points due to setup obligations for the next films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but one scene in particular at the end offers some exciting prospects of where things are headed with The Avengers team. With Ultron out of the picture, the remaining Avengers and the remnants of SHIELD set up a new base of operations. This development isn’t really exciting in itself, but when Captain America and Black Widow enter a room filled with the current team of old and new faces (Falcon, War Machine, Scarlet Witch, and The Vision), it’s hard not to feel a jolt of excitement seeing The Avengers as a team evolve on-screen. In addition, the scene is capped off splendidly with Cap’s “Avengers, A-” line, interrupted in true Whedon fashion with a cut to the end credits.
