Avengers Series Episode 5

With a look at the Blu Ray exclusive short A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor’s Hammer!

By the summer of 2011 fans were ready for Avengers, but Marvel Studios still had some groundwork to lay before they could assemble. And in July the final character, the First Avenger, was introduced to audiences. But the fifth film in Marvel’s series might be the hardest sell yet, a World War II period piece with a goody-goody hero. With Fantastic Four’s Chris Evans donning the red, white, and blue outfit, did Captain America: The First Avenger stand alone, or was it just biding the time for ten more months until The Avengers was released? Listen to hear Jakob, Stuart, and Arnie’s review of this film as well as the short A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor’s Hammer.
