Speaking to 24 Hours at Toronto International Film Festival, Avengers Assemble director and Marvel Phase 2 mastermind described his role in overseeing this second wave of movies – and TV show, lest we forget his SHIELD series.
“Very talented people are writing and directing these movies,” said Whedon, “and what I don’t want to be is the guy they dread, who’s going to come in and say, ‘Oh, well I have the power to say change this.’ I’m not that.”
Sharing a few nuggets on his vision for Avengers Assemble‘s eagerly anticipated sequel, he added, “The creation of the team is not the happy ending. It is the beginning of something that is complex and difficult, and now I get to dig a little deeper. And maybe, while I’m digging, just twist that knife. And that’s exciting for me.”
Avengers Assemble is out on DVD priced £8.99 and on Blu-ray priced £12.99 from 17 September 2012 from Amazon.co.uk. Read our review of the Blu-ray here.
