The Avengers | A Marvel Cinematic Universe Rewatch

The Marvel Cinematic Universe rewatch is here! Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Kevin Mahadeo (@KevMahadeo) have launched “Everything is Super,” a new superhero and comic book focused podcast on Post Show Recaps, beginning with a full deep dive into the MCU.

For the next several weeks, Josh and Kevin will focus on a different film from the MCU, in release order. Next movie at bat: The Avengers. Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye and Black Widow assemble for their first team-up, with writer-director Joss Whedon at the helm. It all comes to a head here, as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes duke it out with Loki and the Chitauri in the fiercest battle of the Infinity Saga yet.

Coming next: one last look at Phase One, a look ahead at Phase Two, and other Marvel madness. Send your feedback for the recap by no later than May 18 by e-mailing [email protected]postshowrecaps.com.
