“The Avengers” and “Masters of the Universe” Are the Same Movie

Just in time for the release of Age of Ultron, the fine folks at CinemaSins have put together this video detailing why the first Avengers¬†and the infamous 1987 live-action screen version of Masters of the Universe¬†are essentially the same movie. And holy cow, they actually make some pretty valid comparisons that I never picked up on before. I found it particularly eye-opening that both movies feature a scene where the villain (Loki and Skeletor) yells “KNEEL!” at their subjects while carrying a giant scepter and wearing a goofy gold headpiece with horns on it. I guess Joss Whedon gets inspiration from the strangest places, but thankfully, he decided not to provide us with a Marvel Universe equivalent of Gwildor.
