Nick, the director of SHIELD, arrived at a research facility of Tesseract, an energy source with extreme potential. it was activated and a portal opened, leading Loki to earth from outer space. in order for his Chitauri army to step through, Loki needed to activate a larger portal. in response to the attack, Nick gathered Captain America, Black Widow, Iron Man, and Hulk, while Thor joined them later in pursuit of his brother, Loki.
despite having so many main characters under the spotlight, we were thrilled to find that each character had enough screen time and character developments to keep us completely rooted for each and every one of them. it seemed almost impossible to feel so excited and pumped up watching a group of superheroes saving earth. the tensions and conflicts caused by overflowing testosterone within the team spiked the film up even more, having the superheroes fighting against each other for dominance before fighting alongside, against a common enemy. in many ways, the film surprised us, with its turn of events as well as its believing performances.
