Two Examples of “Deus Ex Machina”


Brothers Grimm uses dues Ex Machina in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, when the Evil Queen gets ready to kill dwarfs, then a lightning bolt comes out immediately from somewhere, and hitting her with mountain to death.

Second example is from the movie The Avengers, where a missile is deus ex machine. The threat ends by destroying main Chitauri ship. If Black widow would have closed portal, even then the team had to handle too many Chitauri already on earth, and probably they could have collapsed by losing portal.
