Joss Whedon's Fun AVENGERS 2 Interview At The 39th Saturn Awards
What can fans expect in The Avengers 2? Joss Whedon says to anticipate a Steel Magnolias type atmosphere and a new character named Pillow Man. Continue on for this fun, satirical interview with the always affable fan-favorite director.
At last nights, "39th Annual Saturn Awards," Avengers 2 director Joss Whedon unsurprisingly had fielded some questions about his top grossing sequel. Instead of the usual "no comment" and non-commital answers, Whedon decided to have a little fun. "A lot of sitting and drinking tea," Whedon joked about what fans can expect in the second theatrical outing for Earth's Mightiest Heroes. He continued, "Think Steel Magnolias, but not so steel-y. Think downy, pillow-y Magnolias. Obviously Pillow Man will be a huge character."
You never expect it but that's what you're going for. You want everybody to love it, so if they do, it's not like 'What the hell, everything has going horribly wrong!' It's more like, wow, ok cool." You can check out the full interview from MingleMediaTVNetwork by watching the interview above. Of course, this interview was humorous for the most part, but when you look at the official taglines for "Steel Magnolias", "The funniest movie ever to make you cry" and "Sometimes laughter is a matter of life and death" maybe that comparison is more apt than Joss realizes.
