Comic-book fans were beaming with envy on Tuesday evening when word got out that Disney and the Directors Guild of America in Hollywood, hosted a special screening of Marvel's "The Avengers". As if seeing "The Avengers" on the big screen again wasn't enough, a Q&A with writer/director Joss Whedon followed.
Whedon revealed many new things to the eager audience, including what characters were potentially going to be in the film but were eventually cut and what we can expect in the sequel.
"There was a little bit of time where we thought we might not actually get Scarlett [Johansson],"Whedon explains. "There was a very Waspy draft that I wrote. But it was way too Waspy. I was like, 'She's adorable! I'm just going to watch her!'"
Tom Hiddleston's Loki was a great villain in the first film and Whedon did a great job at telling his back-story and showcasing his development. Whedon revealed that his original vision called for a second villain and naturally our curiosity ran wild.
"I'm not going to tell you [who it is]," Whedon said, "because that person might crop up another time. But I definitely felt like, 'I've got Earth's mightiest heroes. I've got four of the biggest, baddest, toughest guys out there and I've got one effete British character actor.' They believed very strongly that they didn't want to add any more mythology, I think was the thing."
