OT: 2012 - The Year of Joss Whedon (Marvel's Avengers, Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing", Whedon's "Cabin In The Woods") discussion thread
America reminded me A LOT of Booth in "Bones".
I like Booth though, but Stark was just awesome!
Stark was better than Capt America but Chris Evans is HOT so yeah... Hulk and Loki @ the end was awesome and funny..
btw guys if you gonna go watch it sit till the credits end as there are scenes between
Are Black Widow and Hawkeye gonna get together? Please say no!
Stark is way more awesome than America! xD
Amen! Just look at his intro (Hells yeah, I missed you).
but Chris Evans is HOT so yeah.
EVERY SINGLE ONE of the Avengers was hot.
Oh and about the Cabin in the Woods: My friend watched it and she said it was so dumb and stupid that ALL of the audience left before the credit, she was the only one to watch it through. That it was with Gods and shit.
Like what? She said there were Gods coming out of nowhere who demanded a sacrifice and that only one could survive ... Did you already watch it? Me and my bestfriend are Horrorfanatics so we watch ALL of the Horrormovies, but I didn't even understand what this whole thing was about.
well fuck, my whole 9 paragraph long post just disappeared.
Whedon's favorite batman movie is "Batman Begins" and he finds Dark Knight very flawed:
Huh, not “The Dark Knight”? Most people would say “The Dark Knight.”“The Dark Knight,” for me, has the same problem that every other “Batman” movie has. It’s not about Batman. I think Heath Ledger is just phenomenal and the character of the Joker is beautifully written. He has a particular philosophy that he carries throughout the movie. He has one of the best bad guy schemes. Bad guy schemes are actually very hard to come up with. I love his movie, but I always feel like Batman gets short shrift. In “Batman Begins,” the pathological, unbalanced, needy, scary person in the movie is Batman. That’s what every “Batman” movie should be.
Whedon apparantly also wanted to do a batman movie years ago.
There was a lot more, in Whedon's take, about the orphaned Bruce Wayne as a morbid, death-obsessed kid. There was a scene—Whedon used to well up, just thinking about it—where young Bruce tries to protect this girl from being bullied in an alley, an alley like the one his parents were murdered in. "And he's like this tiny 12-year-old who's about to get the shit kicked out of him. And then it cuts to Wayne Manor, and Alfred is running like something terrible has happened, and he finds Bruce, and he's back from the fight, and he's completely fine. And Bruce is like, 'I stopped them. I can stop them.' That was the moment for me. When he goes 'Oh, wait a minute; I can actually do something about this.' The moment he gets that purpose, instead of just sort of being overwhelmed by the grief of his parents' death."
But apparantly WB execs pretty muchs pit him in face.
I'd pay anything to get that movie made.
