I think of all the directors who do comic-book movie, Whedon is the one who most consistently gets the closest to the tone of actual comic books, here specifically the Marvel books I found so diverting in the ‘70s… [But] it’s gotten so that I can’t even thoroughly enjoy a comic book movie that I rather want to like. So fuck it. I reserve the right to laugh out loud, and heartily, and with undisguised derision, at the phrase “we’re going to talk about Black Widow…like adults.”

Age of Ultron is often witty – or wittier than it has to be – but it still feels a bit mechanical, especially as the quips and banter start to dry up. “When the dust settles,” intones Ultron later, “the only thing living in this world will be metal” – and we’re almost there, at least if you replace ‘metal’ with ‘digital’, but there’s still a few human quirks left in the crevices, as proved by this amiable sequel.

This “Avengers” doesn’t always pop the way that the first one sometimes did, partly because its villain isn’t as memorable, despite Mr. Spader’s silky threat. And, as is often the case in these comic-book movies, most of the fights are interminable and fatiguing, though Mr. Whedon does fold in moments of beauty, including when the image slows down with each Avenger centered in the frame both together and individually. This centering crystallizes the dynamic that is paramount to the Avengers.
