Default Re: Joss Whedon leading on "Avengers" short list of directors - Part 1

"You always wind up in conversations, and there was an 'Avengers' conversation, but it wasn't really a thorough one. I was sent the material [and] I loved it." "I think the 'Avengers' movie you make is Hulk tearing up Manhattan and the Avengers have got to go in there and shut him down," he said. "I think it's very cool."

"I think that you're going to have to very quickly get to this situation where you start to make your heroes into villains," Carnahan observed. "I think that somebody like the Hulk, it's such a great place to take him."

"[For Hulk] I think they may consider that kind of the franchise-killer, but I think something like that would be awfully interesting." "Listen - you've got Joss Whedon and he's talented as hell," he said. "I think he's going to do a fantastic job with that."
