What values are being portrayed? What's the story-telling value? How does it reflect modern culture or ethics? I'm sorry, but the Avengers doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell to get Academy consideration.
The Dark Knight couldn't pull a nomination because there were only 5 nominees at the time. They basically switched it to 10 because of TDK.
