Joss Whedon's witty superhero blockbuster was a colossal hit, but did it deserve to be? It has lots of cracking screwball banter between Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and the rest.

What it doesn't have is a story or a setting that's big enough to fit in so many larger-than-life characters, or an enemy who's worth their while fighting.
