Whedon did it. I watched The Avengers today. I thought it was terrific and that Whedon did a good job of balancing the cast and giving each main character his/her moments in the film.
Robert Downey, Jr. does dominate every scene he is in IMO, but that mainly because of his talent outshines that of his co-stars.
Some superhero films have bored me. Not this one. It was fun, funny and a hoot.
