Storyline

With many people fearing the actions of super heroes, the government decides to push for the Hero Registration Act, a law that limits a hero’s actions. This results in a division in The Avengers. Iron Man stands with this Act, claiming that their actions must be kept in check otherwise cities will continue to be destroyed, but Captain America feels that saving the world is daring enough and that they cannot rely on the government to protect the world. This escalates into an all-out war between Team Iron Man (Iron Man, Black Panther, Vision, Black Widow, War Machine, and Spiderman) and Team Captain America (Captain America, Bucky Barnes, Falcon, Sharon Carter, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, and Ant Man) while a new villain emerges.

92% Tomatometer – Review on Rotten Tomatoes

‘With a script that never forgets its heroes’ humanity and no shortage of superpowered set pieces, The Avengers lives up to its hype — and raises the bar for Marvel at the movies.’

Review by Peter Bradshaw – The Guardian, Thursday 3 May 2012
‘Joss Whedon’s ensemble comic-book outing has a sparkling script and a tremendous villain…….
It’s an enjoyably absurd and absurdly enjoyable extravaganza, both delirious and surrealist.’

Film starts 8.30pm – free admission
