Who do you think directed the action? Who gave the characters their voice?
Whedon was the largest part of what made the film work and this thread is the first time I've seen anyone give opinion to the contrary.
er, the characters had all previously been in other movies that ranged from decent to very good, so Whedon was hardly "giving them their voice," he was building on previously successful work. And yeah, the action was competently done, but again previous Marvel movies had great action too.
I don't see what Whedon brought to "Avengers" uniquely that hadn't been there before.
Both "Iron Man" movies were funnier than "Avengers," so it was hardly his unique ability to write clever dialogue.
