Joss Whedon Talks The Avengers!

In this in depth interview with 'The Avengers' Director Joss Whedon, we find out what it was like to be handed only the most important ComicBookMovie in Film History!

On working on Comic Books:

"Doing comics was really fun,” Whedon says. “There was one moment when I got an email from the head of Marvel saying, 'Just so we're clear, your team is going to be . . .' and he listed the people I was going to have [working] on it. I looked at the email and had what I refer to as a 'nerdgasm'. I was so happy that it almost frightened me. That was one of the most perfect moments I could have."

On the dialog of The Avengers:

“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.”

Joss goes on to explain the enormous responsibility that has been handed to him with taking the directors chair on a movie that most would agree, is suppose to up the ante:

“I have to feel this emotionally raw because I have to believe when I write something it's going to exist. You have to have a certain naivety, almost Memento-like, and get bitch-slapped over and over.

"You've got to go in with an enormous amount of confidence because everyone is going to question everything you do. You have to be the person who believes when nobody else does.”

Sounds like progress. From these quotes I can tell that this director actually cares about not only making The Avengers, but making it good! Joss goes on to explain that directing The Avengers is the job:

“I've waited for my whole life” but says in the same breath that if it was canceled 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,” he says. “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.”

Please do Mr. Whedon, please do!!!
