I saw Avengers Age of Ultron a second time.
It was a fine action spectacle. I expect I will see it again.
A second viewing brought me no closer to really understanding that Thor subplot, though. Near as I can tell, Thor has a vision of going to a rave with Stringer Bell, then succumbs to a bit of Franchise Service involving the Infinity Gems before flying back to headquarters and using his lightning to power-up a new superhero.
It makes no sense.
Hey, if it’s good enough for Joss Whedon, then it’s good enough for me. The Avengers director all but admitted that the reason for that cave scene was to get Hemsworth’s shirt off. And I suppose that is reason enough.
I hope you liked the movie! Go see it, if you hadn’t, though the notion of a Longbox Graveyard reader having not yet seen this movie is about as nonsensical as the Vision’s origin (either in this movie, or in the comics!). So go see it again — or see Mad Max: Fury Road, which is better.
And join me back here in a week for a message of grave import regarding the future of Longbox Graveyard!
