Do you ever have those moments where you think to yourself “has it really been that long”? One of those moments happened to me a week ago. I was watching a Youtube video where someone was saying that The Avengers came out 10 years ago. I almost didn’t believe it. Sure enough, I looked it up and The Avengers was released on May 4th, 2012. I can’t believe it’s been 10 years since The Avengers was released in theaters.
Four years ago, I wrote a post on Bizarre Brunette about why The Avengers film means so much to me. I won’t repeat myself too much except to say that The Avengers was a major factor in why I started reading comics. It makes me think that I have been reading comics full-time for almost a decade which is something I am fond to look back on.
When I reminisce about my love for The Avengers, I think back to my freshman year of college. In my dorm room, I had two Hawkeye posters. I remember very clearly hanging them on my wall. This leads me into the line of thinking where it’s been 10 years since my freshman year of college and my high school graduation. There’s been so much change in my life from 2012-2022.
Without getting too off-topic, I was thrown off by The Avengers being released 10 years ago. Let me know in the comments if you have felt something similar where you’re thrown by how long it’s been since either a movie or TV show or something happened in your life that was rather significant.

The Avengers movie got me into superhero media. I was dragged to see it and walked away with a newfound respect. 10 years later and I see every superhero movie opening weekend, I have friendships made because of our shared love, and I can’t imagine my what my life would be like if I had never gone to see Avengers.
SAME. Plus it was a huge catalyst for Agents of Shield which is easily one of the best Superhero TV shows I have ever watched.
I’m with you – I can’t believe it’s been 10 years either. So much has changed in the real world and in the Marvel world too, it’s been an epic story and yet it continues….
I know right? I was shocked when I heard it has been 10 years.
