Joss Whedon Discusses THE AVENGERS "All I can do is make it a good movie for somebody to see it twice"
In an interview with the Sunday Morning Hearld Joss Whedon had a few things he wanted to say about his upcoming film for Marvel, The Avengers, which I think we're all incredibly excited for. After all this is the movie Marvel has been building up to.
Right now I’m working on a movie that’s got enormous stipulations and is going to be changing and fluid every second. I’ve come up with dozens of scenes and lines and exchanges and monologues that I adore that are not going to be in it,” he says of The Avengers. “But while I’m writing them they feed me, excite me and they ultimately inform the character. It all goes in.
He goes on to discuss what it's like working under restrictions, and how it helps him be more creative.
There’s something about having restrictions that does make you want to be sly about how you come at something. I do think that fighting against something, if it’s a real creative collaboration, the frisson between what the artist is trying to get out there and what the market place expects, creates very exciting entertainment.
I guess he's just looking at everything in a positive light, and that's not a bad thing. He then continues to talk about his feelings on directing The Avengers and what it means to him.
I’ve waited for my whole life” but says in the same breath that if it was cancelled tomorrow, “I’d go join my family on the vacation I’m not on and start working on things I’ve put on hold to do this.” Sanguine or fatalistic? “I have always felt, my whole life, that everything could be taken away at any second. It has actually been a huge problem for me that I know that. I certainly will do everything in my power not to have that happen, everything in my power to make it good. That’s my power, that’s all I’ve got. All I can do is make it good enough for somebody to see it twice.
How can you not like this guys attitude! He's in the zen mode!
