Joss Whedon’s Avengers commentary
My 3 year old niece is insanely nerdy. I buy and read her all the Avengers books I can. She watching avengers cartoons, Spider-man, and wants to be FireStar for halloween.
But recently I realized… She had no idea who Phil Coulson was. He never appears in the cartoons she watches. She’s not old enough to see the movies. He never appears in the books I bought her.
So I made this book for my niece so that next time she comes over she can see the best honorary Avenger there is.
This is for you, Phil Coulson.

YOU ARE A GREAT HUMAN BEING.

NOW, THE STORY OF A SUPERHERO TEAM WHO WAS NEEDED TO FIGHT THINGS, AND THE ONE MAN WHO HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO BRING THEM ALL TOGETHER.
It’s Avengered Development.
How do you find reactions from fans or kids to Loki’s character?
TOM HIDDLESTON: Mark Ruffalo’s son. I kind of dedicate my performance to his son, his ten-year old, because he was on set a lot. Joss Whedon and Kevin Feige, the producer, they were enormously supportive on set. They were very complimentary when they liked something that I was doing. I would do a take, and they would say, “Awesome. You got it. Let’s — “ And Kevin Feige would be like, “God, that was great. Let’s move on.” And you get on with the day. The days that Mark’s son was there, he was like, “Awesome job, Tom. We got it. Let’s move on.” Kevin would say the same thing, and then Mark’s son would say, “Oh, my God! Tom! That was incredible! That was the most awesome thing I have ever seen!” And I’m like, “I am doing this for you.” And, you know, there were days when Mark would come in with him just to watch, because he wanted to watch. He’d be like, “I’m sorry. We’re here again. He just loves you.” And then you realize that that’s the power that these films can have.
It’s such a beautiful thing. It’s a really amazing privilege.
“All of the actors in The Avengers are so nice. Marvel has these code names for projects and the code name for The Avengers was Group Hug. It felt very much like a group hug on set.” - Tom Hiddleston
This looks amazing!
