I tried to pay closer attention to the theme. I identified two themes, one of which I think is the “heart” of the movie, and another which is not quite as crucial to the plot. It is riddled with spoilers, so don't read if you're trying to decide whether to watch it.
It's the unspoken truth of humanity that you crave subjugation. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life's joy in a mad scramble for power.
But while it does give Loki motivation, it's not the heart of the plot. It's not the main theme, the question that is answered by the film.
You lie and kill in the service of liars and killers. You pretend to be separate, to have your own code, something that makes up for the horrors.
This theme is the heart of the movie, the absolute central idea. The question (part of Loki's speech) occurs in the middle of Act Two, right before a crisis point.
While Loki is doing his little spiel the camera cuts away to the other heroes and characters, which signifies that they are also included as the object of his rant. The Black Widow is the most obvious example, since she's used directly in Loki's quote.
The reason he became Iron Man is that he realized what a mess he'd made of his life. Captain America: you may not be a threat, but at least have the decency not to call yourself a hero.
Because Captain America is attacking exactly what makes Tony Stark such a unique hero. ------ side note: I realize that I haven't specifically detailed Cap and Thor in this list.
The answer, unsurprisingly, lies with Phil Colson, whose death contributed to a lot of the themes, motivations, plot structures, and ideas of the movie. Agent Phil Colson:You're going to lose.
Loki: Your heroes are scattered, your floating fortress falls from the sky... where is my disadvantage? Agent Phil Colson:You lack conviction.
Flawed people can overcome their pasts/actions and work together for the common good if they are convicted of their actions. One of the reasons that The Avengers was so successful is because it had this truth at the heart of it.
Marvel's The Avengers (titled Marvel Avengers Assemble in the UK and Ireland) is a 2012 American superhero film about a team of superheroes who come together to form the Avengers to help stop Thor's brother Loki from enslaving the human race. Natasha Roman off: I've got red in my ledger, I'd like to wipe it out.
You lie and kill in the service of liars and killers. You pretend to be separate, to have your own code, something that makes up for the horrors…but they are a part of you, and they will never go away.

As a matter of fact, it happens frequently, and I know others enjoy it. It’s that simple principle that has led ABC’s Wipe out to summer success.
Contestants take on different obstacle courses in an effort to knock out the competition and win the $50,000 grand prize. The new season premieres tonight, and with 60 obstacles added to the course, there will be no shortage of falls.
JILL WAGNER: I think that people love Wipe out simply because it’s just plain, simple fun. I think that kids really love it, and it’s a wonderful family show.
What’s the worst wipe out you’ve seen on the show? I challenge anyone to come down and do my job and keep a straight face.
I think it’s always going to be the big red balls, but we’ve added something to it this year. There are a lot of different things that have changed, but I still revert to the big red balls trick.
I’m sure it’s not for the contestants, but for all the viewers at home, it’s going to be a lot of fun. It’s a lot more intimidating than it watches on the television screen, I can tell you that.
At first, I think I just normally gravitated toward the guy or woman who looked like an Olympic trainer, but now I just kind of pick the awkward gangly ones. We were filming and all of a sudden these cows just came out of the woods.
I thought they were a part of the set, so I was going to go up to them and start messing with them. They aren’t supposed to be here.” We had to get some people to wrangle them.
A lot of people don’t know that the set is on a big ranch. In the middle of my interview, I’ll just run away from the person.
