Exclusive: Joss Whedon talks Avengers

"Visually, this is very much my own thing..."

 
Joss Whedon has spoken exclusively to Total Film about his upcoming superhero epic The Avengers.
 
“You have to respect the realities of the other movies", says the director. "But visually this is very much my own thing.
 
“My style is very comic-book-like anyway, so I’m trying to do things the way I always do".
 
In a film that sees Iron Man, Captain America, The Hulk and Thor leaving their own movies behind to fight alongside each other, it seems that Whedon is steering clear of the sticky superhero sundae that a less confident helmsman would likely have lazily blended together.
 
“Part of Iron Man’s thing was, ‘Wow, this feels just like us!” says Whedon. “Asgard, less so, and Captain America was a nostalgia piece, so basically it would have been like hiring all the composers of all the other movies to work together on the score.”
 
The Avengers opens in 2012.

      "Exclusive: Joss Whedon Talks Avengers" More like Joss mentions Avengers but doesn't hang about. Once again I get that feeling that Total Film are turning into Empire...

      There's a whole interview with Whedon in the new issue as part of their comic-book special and I assume this is a snippet of that. Probably should have trailed it as such if that is the case.
