With his propaganda-poster jawline and air of unimpeachable nobility, Captain America has always been one of the duller members of the Marvel universe. Which is probably why, although this latest Avengers outing bears his name, the film-makers have press-ganged every spare ounce of Marvel muscle to back him up. The Hulk-sized gap in the lineup is filled by an engagingly geeky Spider-Man.
And while memorising who is in which of the colour-coded, armour-plated exoskeletons can be challenging, the sheer force of so much superpowered personality on screen makes for a blast of a movie.
Directed by: Joe and Anthony Russo – Starring: Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Tom Holland, Scarlet Johansson
