Chris Hemsworth Naked

I saw Avengers Age of Ultron a second time.

Avengers Age of Ultron

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.

So rather than try to unpack this further, I’m going to fall back on an old Longbox Graveyard tradition and instead linkbait Chris Hemsworth naked.

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!

Joss Whedon On Avengers

“I don’t think it’s a perfect movie. I don’t even think it’s a great movie. I think it’s a great time, and I’m proud of it, but for me, what was exciting is that people don’t go to see a movie that many times unless it’s pulling on something from within, unless there’s a need there. That’s very gratifying.”
