Joss Whedon Twitter Chat

Fanboys on Twitter probably already know that Joss Whedon and members of his “Avengers” crew (Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hiddleston, and Clark Gregg) recently pulled a Twitter chat with fans around the world earlier this week. Among the topics discussed were rumors that have been floating about in recent days, including a possible appearance by The Wasp or that Spider-Man guy.

In short, the answers to both those two questions are No, and No. Or, more specifically:

Question: For JW, was there an Avenger you wanted to put in the movie but couldn’t make it work for whatever reason be it budget or time? #Avengers

Answer: “I’m a fan of the Wasp. She’s goofy and sting-y.”

And:

Question: For JW: what about the Spiderman cameo in #Avengers?

Answer: “There is no Spider-Man cameo. But the Avengers do turn off the dark.”

And here’s the rest of the Twitter chatfest. There are a lot of fanboy questions, and the kind of questions you would expect those twits at Entertainment Tonight to ask and think they’re being “journalistic”. But Whedon’s answers are worth the read anyway. Dude is hilarious all the time, apparently.

“The Avengers” assemble in theaters May 4, 2012..

Very diff dynamic in IM, Thor and Avengers, diff heroes, more layers to Coulson’s world/powers revealed

Question:

Question:
For JW, was there an Avenger you wanted to put in the movie but couldn’t make it work for whatever reason be it budget or time? #Avengers

“I’m a fan of the Wasp. She’s goofy and sting-y.”

Question:
@twhiddleston Were the stunts more difficult this time around in The Avengers as opposed to Thor & how’d u prepare for them?

More stunts. More training. Day in, day out. Running, jumping, flying, twisting. We worked like athletes. It was really fun.

there’s a lot of Nick Fury in me already.

Question:

Answer:
not yet.

Question:
For JW: what about the Spiderman cameo in #Avengers?

Answer:
not at all, there was a new memory factor involved.

Question:
@twhiddleston You’ve said that in you listened to Prodigy for Loki. What did you listen to this time to get rdy for the #Avengers?

Answer:
“Archangel”, by a band called Burial. And not a little of Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack compositions.
In all honesty, yes. Sometimes you wake up feeling warm and sunny, but the scene requires hatefulness and spite.

Question:
@twhiddleston what kind of relationship do you have with other actors on the set of “The Avengers”?

Answer:
Nothing but love… It wasn’t called Group Hug for nothing!

You have to reach deeper. And stay aware of the fact that the emotions are true, but they’re not mine.
