There was a line from a Senator being interviewed at the end talking about the destruction and asking, 'Where are the Avengers? This was their fight!"
Yeah, and that was mixed in with some pretty goofy, lighthearted interviews as well ("I love you Thor!!" "Superheroes in New York?"). So again, it wasn't really taking the situation that
seriously. You would have thought only a handful of people died or something.
