The 10 Best Things about 'The Avengers'

Clocking in at nearly two and a half hours, making it the Marvel film with the longest run time so far, The Avengers could have felt like an extremely long film. Although the movie had a lot of characters to focus on and a lot of story to tell, its running time might have seemed excessive if the film's pacing hadn't been so well-defined.

Without bogging itself down in exposition or clogging itself with an overuse of special effects, this film had a solid structure that kept the story going. It's to the credit of writer/director Joss Whedon that this epic film never seemed as long as it actually was.
