THE AVENGERS - What We Learned From Joss Whedon's Live-Tweet
Writer-director Joss Whedon joined his Avengers cast members Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hiddleston and Clark Gregg for a live-tweet event. We recently reported the rumor that a certain websllinger was going to make a cameo.
Thanks to Blastr we have some noteworthy excerpts from the event:
Q: Is the movie's plot going to reference any classic Avengers stories or be a more "ulitmate-ized" story?
JW: "It's a combo platter: classic, Ultimate, plus a little "Richie Rich" & "Mastering the Art of French Cooking."
Q: Was there an Avenger you wanted to put in the movie but couldn't make it work for whatever reason be it budget or time?
JW: "I'm a fan of the Wasp. She's goofy and sting-y."
Q: What about the Spider-Man cameo?
JW: "There is no Spider-Man cameo. But the Avengers do turn off the dark."
Q: Has the ante been upped on Easter Eggs? And if so, how attentive will movie goers have to be to stop them?
JW: "There will be actual dyed eggs. Try to find them all!"
Q: Everyone always asks what the hardest part of directing the movie was. What was the easiest?
JW: "Controlling the meat puppets. ... I mean, actors."
Q: Will the female characters, esp. Black Widow, remind the boys how strong they are, and how?
JW: "The females will spend their time whimpering and baking and being befuddled by math." #sarcasm
Q: What was your first reaction to getting the chance to direct The Avengers?
JW: "What moron would take a job that hard? Show me this moron, so that I may mock him."
Q: Can you enjoy Avengers without seeing all the other films?
JW: "You don't need to see any @Marvel movies to enjoy #Avengers! But you need to see Steel Magnolias, like, six times."
Q: How long did it take to shoot the movie?
JW: "I started when I was 12 and should be done by May 3rd at 11:59 pm."
Q: Who was the jokester on the set?
JW: "I had the jokester put down on day 3."
