Despite the abundance of tough women on TV and movies, and the British film industry declaring last year as “the year of strong women”, there still aren’t very many leading roles showcasing women in action/super hero/sci-fi movies.

We’re currently in a boom period for superhero films, with plenty more on the way. It’s the golden age for comic book fans. Characters like Wonder Woman, Dr. Strange and the Justice League are all coming to theaters, joining established franchises like Thor and Captain America.

It’s time to ask…How well does Age of Ultron stand on its own, rather than as part of a greater series? Does it work well as a solo entity, or is it really only a link between Phase 2 and Phase 3 of the MCU?
