Review: The Avengers

For the most part, DC and Marvel have had two drastically different approaches towards the most recent movies that they've released featuring their superheroes. Whereas DC post Dark Knight has been focused on making distinct individual franchises that are critically and financially successful and independent of each other, Marvel has used all of its most recent superhero movies as a means to an end. Rather than build up any particular individual franchise, Marvel has had a long term goal of uniting all of their heroes into one long continuous universe, much as they have done in their comics. Thus, while DC can claim the single most critically acclaimed superhero movie of all time, Marvel can claim the best universe, which in some ways can be seen in the new Avengers movie.
