Director Joss Whedon remained busy on the set of The Avengers but Marvel Studios Co-President Kevin Feige helped fan more excitement for the superheroes adventure (if that’s even possible) talking about next summer’s blockbuster with Film Journal.
“We’re making a big crossover event that brings all of these characters together to face something incredible and epic,” Feige told Film Journal.
As far as maintaining some sort of balance amongst all the Marvel characters, Feige credited Whedon for being an expert at telling ensemble stories thanks to his experience with Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
“We’re in the fifth week of production on The Avengers and all of the actors have been very impressed with him. They all carry their own movies and I think everyone was worried about who would get the short end of the stick. But no one does because they’re all there servicing the larger story. The stuff we’ve shot is cutting together spectacularly and it’s just the character interactions that we’ve done so far. We haven’t shot much of the action sequences yet. I think the end result is going to feel very, very satisfying.”
“Thor” star Chris Hemsworth continued to work alongside Robert Downey Jr. reprising his role as Tony Stark and Iron Man in the big-budget “The Avengers” with Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Chris Evans (Captain America) and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) among others.
