Avengers NY Battle Sequence
It’s just the most perfect Superhero action battle sequence. It’s so well crafted as a one shot action scene from begining to the end and has every character in a literal crossover. The scene is the reason we dream of team up movies.
Peter Parker’s Prom Pick-up
From the moment Toombs opens the door until he drops Pedro off with a threat this is just old school Hollywood thriller stuff. Holland holds his own against Keaton at his best, the traffic light on his face changing from red to green as he becomes certain Peter is Spider-Man is the icing on the cake.
GOTG Dance off
So out there and perfect for the movie, the fact the throwaway comedy of it leads to a really powerful show of how close the characters have become in a short space of time is fantastic.
Like a futuristic Raiders intro, we immediately know everything about Starlord before the movie even gets going simply because of this sequence playing on our knowlege of pop culture in such a neat way.
Fury in the Furymobile
This sequence is as close to us getting a Nick Fury movie and it is AWESOME. From the way it begins with Fury calling out the fake cops as racist and then their siren signal to the second car to ram Fury, to his arguments with his car, right to Fury escaping but running into Bucky just when you think he’s gotten away. It’s fantastic, I dont know why it doesn’t get more praise. I like it too that the Russos had in their head The Punisher helped near the end. I don’t think the logistics quite work but I love the idea anyway.
Cap in a lift
“Before we get started, does anyone want to get out?”
Winding up the threat level floor by floor as Steve already becoming painfully aware he may be playing for the wrong team is Hitchcock stuff. Absolutely brilliant.
Thor V Hulk
It’s everything you want out of that scene Thor/Hulk face off in a silly putty version of Gladiator, I really don’t need to tell anyone here why it’s amazing.
Avengers hammer lift party game
Seeing them off the clock and messing around like this is pure joy and every reaction is perfect.
Thor returns to find Loki on throne
An absolutely genius way not to make Thor’s return to catch Loki out completely boring and plodding, plot wise.
"Now we’re all standing up."
Trying to give characters like GOTG a real genuine motivation to get involved in a fight that they can run from is difficult. Doing it in one scene with only a conversation where you actually believe it? That’s the work of an absolutely fantastic writer/director.
