Infinity War Countdown: Avengers: Age of Ultron

In my opinion, there isn’t a bad MCU movie, there are just less good ones. Yeah Thor: The Dark World isn’t as good as something like Winter Soldier, but I still don’t think it was bad. Even the worst entry in the MCU has its merits, and is still an entertaining, well-made piece of cinema….
