Marvel’s THE AVENGERS did something in 2012 that no one thought possible. It took some of the biggest films in the previous four years and combined the characters into a cohesive, fun, action filled adventure without violating the rules the universe had set forth. In 2015, AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON not only had to follow that film, but also exist in that universe that now contains 10 total films, two television series, multiple tie-in comics, and expectations that definitely went through the roof.

First things first (I’m the realest), no just kidding, but TV spots for movies are a BIG no-no for me. I learned this from Mike Royer (my co-host of Superhero Slate podcast) and we actively avoid them.
