Micro-News: Joss Whedon On The Importance Of His None Marvel Projects, Mary Jane Gets A Dad And More

Joss Whedon on the importance of his small, indie projects, Mary Jane's father is cast in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and actor Jerome Flynn (Bronn) talks about what's coming up in Game of Thrones.



Joss Whedon talks about the need to have smaller projects in the works alongside his Marvel stuff with The Scotland Herald.
"It started with the [writers'] strike and the realization that not only can we do these things ourselves, but that we have to. I'm very happy at Marvel and I'm having the time of my life working on Avengers 2, but at the same time you need this other outlet. And everybody has it. Nobody can't do what we did. It's absurd what technology has given us just in the last decade and not to take advantage of that feels like a waste of time."


Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson talked with Collider about his new movie Snitch which opens this week but also briefly discussed G.I. Joe: Retaliation and Hercules.
"G.I. Joe. Saw it three weeks ago. Badass. Hercules, passion project coming up, shooting in Croatia, can't wait."




IMDB says journeyman actor Brian Haley is playing Phillip Watson, the father of Mary Jane Watson in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. It's IMDB though so take this with a grain of salt.




Jerome Flynn who plays the scene-stealing Bronn on HBO's Game of Thrones discusses the upcoming third season with Access Hollywood.
"He's a badass character but he's a small character. The writers, Dan and David, they've been great because they've given me bits even though there's not much in the books, they keep Bron ticking along. He's just about sticking it with Tyrion, he's a bit frustrated, under paid, but there's still love between them. And we have some nice scenes together but not much. I think I'm going along next season for a bit more."


Director Jeff Wadlow says a trailer for Kick-Ass 2 is coming soon.




In the latest issue of SciFi Now, Mark Millar discusses what Joe Carnahan had planned for Daredevil.
"He had an act in mind and said, 'We can't set it in the present day....Hell's Kitchen is a beautiful neighborhood.' Rudy Giuliani has cleaned everything up. It's nice for the people that live there, but it's not very good cinematically. So he said it had to be a period piece, and the perfect time to set it would be in the Seventies, as you have all the kung-fu exploitation, the race-riots, the blackout- all that kind of stuff would be so cool in a superhero movie. The blackout with a guy that's blind would be incredible."
