How can you not HEART Joss Whedon? This was his response when asked about what he’d do in the inevitable (please, God!) The Avengers sequel:
By not trying to [top it]. By being smaller. More personal, more painful. By being the next thing that should happen to these characters, and not just a rehash of what seemed to work the first time. By having a theme that is completely fresh and organic to itself. 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.
Does this guy know his stuff or what?? I WOULD GO SEE THIS MOVIE IN A HEARTBEAT.
But then, I’d go see anything by Joss. So, really, not much of a recommendation ;p
* Joss being my hero comes as a surprise to absolutely no one.
