Yeah, Whedon would destroy the movie

J.J. Abrams got the same thing when the M:I-3 trailer came out. I've come to expect it now whenever TV directors make the jump to the big screen. So I'd prepare yourselves for more of those comments when the Thor 2 trailer comes out.

Why is this thread revived? I hope it isn't because Whedon decides not to return to direct the sequel.

Edit: Nevermind, looks like Whedon is indeed coming back.

You know, I took film courses in college but I never knew that there were so many experts in cinematic techniques until I came to this site. People here were judging the quality of the film's cinematography on the basis of trailers that they had seen only online and not in the proper format. Some parroted claims that the film wasn't "cinematic enough," without ever being able to explain precisely what that accusation meant. Whedon was criticized for using the wrong aspect ratio by people who had no understanding of why a director would use the 1:78 format for a post-converted 3D film. Right up to the film's premiere The Avengers was sagely compared to a TV movie by people who had only seen a few minutes of the finished product.


Funny how all that noise died the day the film hit the theaters.

"The two things that matter the most to me: emotional resonance and rocket launchers. Party of Five, a brilliant show, and often made me cry uncontrollably, suffered ultimately from a lack of rocket launchers." -- Joss Whedon



coincidence?
