THE AVENGERS Live Twitter Chat Event Recap and Teaser For Super Bowl Trailer

This week we were able to witness a live twitter chat event with some of the cast and the director of the upcoming Avengers film: Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg and Joss Whedon. The main appeal for it was the release of the teaser for the extended Avengers trailer, to be aired during the Superbowl XLVI. Even though they were kind of dismissive with their answers and the teaser was short ( 17 seconds ), there were some pretty ones worth a reading. Here’s a recap of the highlights of the live chat event:

For JW: “Is the movie’s plot going to reference any classic Avengers stories or be a more “ulitmate-ized” story?”

JW: “It’s a combo platter: classic, Ultimate, plus a little “Richie Rich” & “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.”


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?”

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


For SLJ: “How much of your portrayal is based on comics Nick Fury and how much of Nick Fury is based on you?”

SLJ:” There’s a lot of Nick Fury in me already.”


For TH: “What was your biggest challenge in playing Loki and Fury in the Avengers?”

TH: “The biggest challenge was magnifying his menace without losing touch of his emotional truth. Keeping his chaos honest!”


( Random Comment) JW: “There is no Spider-Man cameo. But the Avengers do turn off the dark.”


For SLJ:  “Are we going to see you kick some ass?”

SLJ: “Fo Sho!”


For JW: “Most Difficult and Best things about filming (part) of  The Avengers in NYC?”

JW: “Who gets the last bagel”


For JW: “Everyone always asks what the hardest part of directing the movie was. What was the easiest?”

JW: “Controlling the meat puppets…I mean, actors.”


For JW: “What was your first reaction to getting the chance to direct the The Avengers?

JW: “What moron would take a job that hard? Show me this moron, so that I may mock him.”


For JW: “Will the female characters, esp. Black Widow, remind the boys how strong they are, and how?”

JW: “The females will spend their time whimpering and baking and being befuddled by math.”


For JW: “Has the ante been upped on Easter Eggs? And if so, how attentive will movie goers have to be to stop them?”

JW: “There will be actual dyed eggs. Try to find them all!”


For JW: “Can you enjoy The Avengers without seeing all the other films”?

JW: You don’t need to see any Marvel movies to enjoy Avengers! But you need to see Steel Magnolias, like, six times.”


For JW: “How long did it take to shoot the movie?”

JW: “I started when I was 12 and should be done by May 3rd at 11:59 pm.”


For CG: “Will we see you with flour bags again?”

CG: Coulson never kills with the same cooking ingredient twice


For CG: “What do u like best about Coulson?”

CG: the bulletproof Dolce suits


For SLJ: “Nick Fury or Mace Windu?”

SLJ: Jedi or mortal? You be the judge!


For CG: “Funniest experience with a fan?”

CG:  May have signed some large boobs at NYCC


For CG:  “Where does Coulson buy his suits?”

CG: Dolce has a SHIELD outlet


For TH:” Will we see you pole dancing again in Avengers just like we did in Thor:)?”

TH: “Ahem… (clears throat)… er… well… I don’t think so. Joss?”
