Joss Whedon Wants AVENGERS 2 To Be “Smaller, More Personal”

Joss Whedon is behind the wheel of what is basically the most anticipated movie of this year: THE AVENGERS.  And luckily for all of us, he is saying the most sane thing anybody behind such a huge movie could ever say: He wants the sequel to be “smaller” and “more personal”.

According to Joblo, Whedon has said that if there is a follow up, he doesn’t want it to go crazy with the action, but still stay true to all the characters involved:

“I want to know what makes them tick, what makes them flawed, what makes them fight – and ultimately, what makes them awesome…I go to these movies for those moments when the heroes define themselves, either through action or deliciously overwritten speeches.”

I was not sarcastic when I said that Whedon was saying the smartest thing anyone could about such a project.  There have been way too many huge superhero films that have collapsed under the weight of too many elements, BATMAN AND ROBIN, SPIDERMAN 3 and IRON MAN 2 being three very notable examples.  If he could bring THE AVENGERS to the big screen and show us a movie with that many characters that doesn’t lose track, then I say let him do a sequel exactly the way he wants to do it: small, intimate, and true to the characters.

THE AVENGERS hits theaters on May 4th.

And yeah…watch the trailer yet again, because you know you want to.

The Invisible Man Movie Trailer Looks Terrifying

Published

on

The idea of being invisible has intrigued us for more than 100 years. HG Wells released his book The Invisible Man in 1897 and we’ve been obsessed with the idea ever since. Leave it to Hollywood (and the incredible actress Elisabeth Moss) to find a new way to have us on the edge of our seats. This one has endless opportunities for jump scares (those sudden out of nowhere startling moments that I hate because they’re so damned effective) and the plot set up is pretty compelling. I’ll be there for this one!

The Invisible man hits Theaters February 28 https://www.TheInvisibleManMovie.com
