7. The Avengers (2012)
It’s the first movie that portrays the Avengers together for the first time on screen. This time Loki meets the Chitauri’s leader, the Other. They agree to recover the Tesseract by working together in exchange for an army to dominate the Earth.
Scenes in the credits show the Chitauri’s leader complaining to his master about the mistake of believing humans were weak and explaining that attacking them would be flirting with death. It’s the first time in the Marvel saga in which Thanos is revealed as the master. Finally, we get to see the whole team eating together in silence at a restaurant.
