Joss Whedon Provides Commentary on New Clip from THE AVENGERS

     May 1, 2012


The Avengers opens in only three days, but if you need yet another clip, a new one has gone online.  However, this clip has some welcome commentary from writer-director Joss Whedon talking about the fight scene between Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth).  As Whedon breaks down the scene, he makes the good point about how each character wants something different, neither is completely in the wrong, “and that makes it more than a fight.  It makes it a conflict.”  It’s a fun scene and it’s definitely more than simple “who would win in a fight” pandering.

Hit the jump to check out the clip, and click here for the interview with Mark Ruffalo (who plays Bruce Banner/The Hulk) we posted yesterday.  The film also stars Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Cobie Smulders, Clark Gregg, and Samuel L. JacksonThe Avengers opens in 3D on Friday.
