Joss Whedon: Avengers 2 newcomers are 'textured'

Jun 18 2013, 10:24am CDT | by

Joss Whedon says 'Avengers 2' newcomers Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be ''textured''.

The director hinted the new villainous additions to the Marvel sequel about a team of crime-fighting superheroes will cause havoc for the motley crew - but will have a nicer side to them too.

Speaking in a podcast for Empire magazine, he teased: ''Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are very close to my heart because they were Avengers the whole time I was reading the book as a kid. Sometimes they were evil but sometimes they were good. They're very ... textured, they're very different from everybody else in the mix.

''They're not there to make things easier on The Avengers but what we do with the group once we've got them is squeeze. The fun I'm having doing that is probably unseemly.''

Joss - who confirmed Tom Hiddleston's villainous Asgardian god Loki won't be featuring in the follow-up film - also updated fans on the script's progress, revealing it already feels like the right tone has been set after the first draft.

He said: ''I've turned in a first draft. The story is very set, everybody's on board with the exact movie I'm trying to make which is what worked the first time. I said, 'I want to make this movie, a Marvel version of this movie.' And they said, 'Yay', and never looked back. Well they said, 'Maybe the tone', or, 'Maybe this structure' but once we had it, we had it. And I feel like we're there with 'Avengers 2' which is really important.

''There's still fine tuning to do on the script. There are many things that can be 'plussed' and be better and also, there's some science in it, which means I have scenes where someone says, 'Science the sciency science.' So I'm like, 'I'll fix that later.' ''

Avengers 3: Is Marvel Killing The Magic?

Aug 15 2014 10:42pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

I can see the headline - "Guardians of the Galaxy Astounds with 165 million dollar debut!" Really, it is astounding because without promos who even knew who the Guardians of the Galaxy were. But you had the name "Marvel Comics" on the project so what did you expect? People flock to the theaters like stampeding cattle because its another Marvel movie and the reason why all comes down to The Avengers ...

Don’t Expect to See Thanos in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

Jul 31 2014 2:15pm CDT | Source: slash film

The Marvel supervillain Thanos was first teased in the post-credits sequence for The Avengers, and his influence is felt in this weekend’s Guardians of the Galaxy. But it’ll be a while before we really get to know him better. Kevin Feige confirmed that the Mad Titan is “not a part” of Avengers: Age of Ultron — though in typically coy fashion, he admits “nothing’s definitive” at this point. Hit the jump for details. Russ got the scoo ...

Star Wars: Episode VII, Fantastic Four, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part One, Chappie... these are only a few of the major release that aren't coming to Comic Con this year. Either a lot of these movies simply don't have enough footage ready or some studios are beginning to care less about Comic Con. Hopefully it's not the latter case. Some of those films listed will make some sort of an apperance, but it's a shame they're not making the trip down to Hal ...
