For superhero fanboys out there, the upcoming Avengers movie (due in theaters in May of 2012) could go down as one of the films they anticipate the most in their lifetime. It's like an all-star game for superheroes, with folks like Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Incredible Hulk all together for one epic, no-holds-barred action spectacular, and I'd wager this thing will break all box office records once it finally lands in theaters.
Poll: Should Joss Whedon Direct The Avengers?survey software
The Avengers, Joss Whedon
Fanboy Fix, The Avengers
He creates believable fun characters... I hope he does well, and belive he will...
As long as Whedon is allowed to write and direct Avengers, then it should turn out well. Too many people underestimate him. He's a little ahead of his time, which would be perfect for a superhero movie. He could even make it epic and split it into two parts, or make a trilogy. With a movie like Avengers, you're either going to have to give each hero a little screen time, or give one or two heroes a lot of screen time [don't forget antagonist(s)' development], so a trilogy would allow for a much richer story on a grander scale and allow for more Avenger additions, cameos, crossovers, and etc. Also, Whedon is no stranger to the Marvel universe. Between Serenity and Dollhouse, he wrote for one of the X-Men titles for quite some time.
of course he's the "right guy" and i'm sure it'll be a fine movie, but i would much rather whedon being creating something new and original of his own that churning out yet another boring superhero movie...
idk man, not the director i was expecting. really... now i dont even know about it. first chris evans now this..
why does it have to be so far away. I want instant gratification. NOWA!
