The Cast Of THE AVENGERS Reveal Who They Would Like To See Join The Team
The cast members that comprise the "big four" from Marvel's The Avengers chat about who they would like to see drafted to the team. There are a few jokey answers, but a couple of Marvel characters are also name checked..
USA Today have a great round table interview with Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Mark Ruffalo in which they discuss quit a few aspects of filming Joss Whedon's The Avengers. They share interesting and humorous stories about getting into costume (apparently Ruffalo suffered for his art a bit while wearing his leotard), the positives and negatives (RDJ admits there are a few) of the film, and much more. But best of all, the lads discuss who they might like to see join the team in the future. In among the jokes are a couple of characters that any fan would love to see pop up in a future movie if it wasn't for all of these different studios holding the rights - something Hermsworth suggests clearing up by "splitting the takings"..
Q: If you could draft one new member to the Avengers, who would it be?
Hemsworth: (Jean-Claude) Van Damme from Bloodsport. A big kick to the alien head.
Evans: I'm thinking Salma Hayek.
Hemsworth: Why's that, Chris?
Evans: She can carry my shield.
Hemsworth: You might have to carry hers.
Ruffalo: I think Wolverine would be cool.
Hemsworth: I know different studios own all the stuff, but wouldn't it be cool to have Spider-Man and Wolverine come in? Split the takings.
Evans: That would be awesome.
Indeed it would. Alas, something like that is very unlikely unless of course the rights eventually revert back to Marvel - also very unlikely. But we can keep on hoping. After all, if you had told me 5 years ago that The Avengers would ever happen I probably wouldn't have believed you. As I said there is a lot more to the interview so be sure to click the link below to check it out.
The Avengers is out NOW! Get thee to thy multiplex.
