The Avengers (2012) Movie

What happens when you put Hulk, Iron Man (2008/2010), Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff), Hawkeye, Thor (2011), Loki, Captain America, Agent Phil Coulson, and Nick Fury into a bowl? You get a great movie! I always enjoy a well-formed story and action-packed movie, but The Avengers pulls together several such movies.

The drama between Avengers team members, the Avengers and their opponents and the humor that can be found in and around all of that makes for a fantastic movie! If you liked any of the movies linked above then I think you really will LOVE The Avengers.
