Avengers 2

Joss Whedon Talks Quicksilver, the Scarlet Witch and Iron Man's Roles in Avengers 2

Joss Whedon is certainly keeping busy with Marvel. Having written and directed the mega-blockbuster, The Avengers, he is now launching Marvel’s first live-action TV show, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., while also preparing Marvel's The Avengers 2.


I spoke to Whedon this week at ABC’s Upfront, where S.H.I.E.L.D. was being announced and asked him a couple of questions about Avengers 2 and some of the characters in it.

Whedon had previously alluded to a brother/sister duo being in the film, which EW later said was indeed Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. When I brought up Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch to Whedon, he confirmed they were the characters in question, explaining, “You know, they had a rough beginning. They’re interesting to me because they sort of represent the part of the world that wouldn’t necessarily agree with The Avengers. So they’re not there to make things easier. I’m not putting any characters in the movie that will make things easier.”

We also know Tony Stark/Iron Man plays another large role in the sequel, but the end of Iron Man 3 saw Tony destroying all the Iron Man suits we knew about, while seemingly stepping back from his time in the armor.

When I asked Whedon if that made it a challenge putting Iron Man in Avengers 2, he remarked, “Well, I feel like in Iron Man 3, even though he said, ‘I’ve changed' -- he blew up his remote suits, but I don’t think anybody thinks he doesn’t have one anymore. The question is, if The Avengers are called, does he show up? And the answer is, ‘Yes!’”

From what I've seen, Singer has talked about using Quicksilver, but not Scarlet Witch, and it sounds more like he's envisioning him as a teenager. Whedon is talking about using them both, so I wouldn't expect a lot of crossover.

Avengers killed Iron Man for me.

Taking a film that was put in the direction of more realism and less fantasy (relying on gadgets rather than super powers), and then slamming it smack in the middle of a giant super hero unrealistic fantasy land orgy involving THOR was crap in my book.

I realize I am in the minority here, as I did not read comic books.

But to me, the Avengers was like taking Nolan's Batman reboot and making a new Justice League film, which would totally ruin what Nolan built.

They should've just made a full movie on Hawkeye instead.

My son posed a question to me today regarding thors hammer. In Thor, they say that his hammer has no equal. Then why can Captain America's stop Thor's hammer. Especially when it is made of 1940's vibranium?

Just because it stopped a blow doesn't mean he would not eventually smash Cap to a pulp with it.
Regardless,
Can't stop this

[geek hat]
Just because it has no equal doesn't mean it instantly annihilates anything it hits; Iron Man's armor, Loki's scepter and the Hulk's jaw each take direct hits and survive. The Vibranium's special thing (regardless of year) is that it neutralizes any force directed at it, which is why there's never any recoil and why he can do the multi-target banked shots.
[/geek hat]

[realistic person hat]
Because a) the movie-makers wanted all of the main characters to be about equal, power-wise, b) they needed to show how powerful the shield was, and most importantly c) it looks cool.

Because Vibranium is an alien metal that will absorb kinetic energy from virtually any impact.

Umm wat? What did you expect? Ironman is a hero that uses tech and gadgets. The others are superheroes. If avengers ruined it for you, I would stay away, it was the perfect example of a comic movie. Nolan batman was more of a bond/jason bourne movie. When bats teams up with almost any other characters they will be superhero/villains.

Sorry. But you are going to have to adjust.

Which is exactly why Nolan's Batman films were awesome.

The Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher's Batman films were a LOT more comic book based... does that mean they were better films in a comic fans eyes?

The Favreau Iron Man series was leaning in this way... which had me excited... but after The Avengers, not so much.


I'm not saying I'm right, I'm just giving my opinion and wondering if I'm alone in this universe on my thoughts. =)
Everyone I talk to loved the avengers.
