Five questions I had after watching “The Avengers”

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of “The Avengers,” but when the credits rolled on Marvel’s blockbuster team-up, I did have a few questions.

Over at IFC, I wrote up the five biggest questions on my mind after “The Avengers” — including the whereabouts of a certain super-weaponized version of Tony Stark’s armor.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

1. Where was War Machine?

Last seen in “Iron Man 2,” Iron Man’s armored, heavily weaponized counterpart piloted by James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheadle) was conspicuously absent from “The Avengers.” One can’t help wondering what sort of threat was more deserving of War Machine’s attention than an army of aliens and an angry god threatening to take over our entire planet. After all, if one highly mobile, flying tank with energy weapons can do that much damage to an invading army, how much of Manhattan could’ve been saved if Iron Man and War Machine were on the case?
