It seems Mr Whedon loves a good chat about his film Avengers Assemble recently he’s been everywhere and why not, it does look fantastic and we are all jumping about in our seats in anticipation, but can there be such a thing as marketing overkill?
This time round Joss has told us more about Loki’s army and who exactly they are. In all the footage we have seen in the trailers the one thing we aren’t particualrly clear on is who the heck are the things blowing everything up. However now we know, that’s right, we can sleep soundly tonight.
Here is what Joss had to say about the aliens from outta space.
“It’s the Vulcans. I don’t know a lot about the Marvel universe, and I thought there were Vulcans. I know we’re going to get a lot of emails about that one…I will say only this: It is not the Kree or the Skrulls.
Those two aliens are Marvel mainstays and have enormous back stories. They have a big life of their own that just could not be contained in a film where I already had seven movie stars.
The Skrulls…They can shape change. That’s a whole thing. I’ve already got Loki. He’s got magic. Once you got magic along with your Iron Man and your Black Widow…It’s a real juggling act.”
Just incase you can’t get enough of Joss here he is with more about the budget, another huge detail I’m sure you wanted to know.
“When you can have everything, everybody wants to give you everything, and then it’s very hard to make things feel real. To make things feel lived in. So we had to work hard at taking the big budget out of the movie. Too much Scrooge is not a good thing. We have to think more creatively about cutting the budget and limiting ourselves.”
Getting a little bit bored of Avengers Assemble now?, yeah think we are too. It . We just want to watch the full film!
