Double Feature with THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

(2012) dir Joss Whedon w/Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg, Samuel L. Jackson [143 min]
In one of the smartest blockbuster-movie-making moves of recent memory, Marvel Studios hired, not a heavy-handed Hollywood hack to direct their most important film, but a creative-minded insider who had a proven track record working with an ensemble cast – never mind that this ensemble includes a CGI-generated rage monster. Joss Whedon surely delivered as THE AVENGERS was one of the most entertaining – not to mention highest grossing – films of 2012, proving that a ‘fun’ superhero movie can still be successful.
