Am I the only one who’s starting to panic about Age of Ultron?
I’ll be the first to admit that I haven’t been following the Avengers sequel that closely. I saw that trailer from a while back that had Iron Man’s take on the Hulkbuster, and I’ve seen a few posters, and I kinda-sorta know who’s set to appear in it. But the details are lost on me, and that’s the way I want it. An air of mystery is still appreciable -- even if the movie does just ultimately boil down to “punch lots of bad guys”.
But man oh man, I can’t help but worry. There’s a lot of hype (and money) riding on this thing, and it’d be way too easy for it to fall apart in any number of ways. What if it’s just pure stupidity? What if it’s just no fun? What if it can’t deliver on the spectacle? Yeah, the Marvel movies have had one crazy-long hot streak, but every streak has to come to an end. When is it going to happen? I don’t know. But what if it’s this one? The one movie that matters most?
More recently, there’s been something on my mind: have all the Marvel movies secretly sucked?
