Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow (2008)
About 2 or 3 years ago, I got my daughter into super hero animation. We started out with the most recent Justice League series. Not the new Justice League that were the sidekicks and Superboy, but the Justice League and Justice League Unlimited series. We have watched the various Marvel live action films and most of the DC animated movies.
What we watched recently was Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow. Descendants of Captain America/Black Widow, Thor, Black Panther, Giant Man/Wasp and Hawkeye with the help of an elder Tony Stark and eventually Hulk look to end the rule of Ultron.
We both liked this movie. My daughter is not nearly as versed in Marvel lore as I am, but she caught on quick to what was going and the movie did a lot to help fill in the past enough for her to understand what was going on.
The Pym character was a bit annoying, but tell me that we all didn't know someone like that as a kid. Which pretty much stands for all the kid characters. Trying to find their way in the world and making huge mistakes along the way. They are kids, what did you expect?
Anyway, this would be a good movie to sit and watch with the kids. Struggle and triumph win the day and can be a good moral lesson to talk with your kids about.
