What It Really Is: A hell of a great time. The Avengers has everything you could possibly want: awesome fights, tons of humor, crazy spectacles and the Hulk smashing shit. Newcomers Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner fit into the team like they were there all along, and the rest of the vets are more than pulling their weight. Oh, and that incredible showdown in New York City the trailers keep teasing? We’re going to go ahead and add it to our favorite movie battles in the Big Apple. Just like the rest of you, we’ll be first in line to watch brooding Batman come July, but for a superhero flick that’s just a whole lot of fun, call The Avengers.
