Considering how widely liked this movie seemed to be, it's surprising to learn that The Avengers has since been dubbed the most overrated flick of 2012. In a survey conducted by the LA Times, Joss Whedon's interpretation of Marvel's story didn't win this title by a margin, it ran away with it. Well at least Whedon himself won't be too shocked considering his comments on the movie's standard - 'I don't even think it's a great movie.'
Anyhoo, The Avengers won by 85% of the votes, beating Prometheus which scored less than 5%, Ted, Brave and one movie we're actually delighted to see listed - Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master; it really wasn't great. Last year R-Patz and K-Stew's combined efforts in The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 1 earned itself this less than coveted title, which isn't much of a shocker. But The Avengers? Really? We LOVED it!
