The Avengers director Joss Whedon has revealed that one of the key elements to making The Avengers movie work, was to find out what exactly made each individual character tick. Joss stated that he had to ask himself a number of questions regarding each of The Avengers superheroes before he could be sure of making the perfect movie.
Whedon explained, "I want to know what makes them tick, what makes them flawed, what makes them fight - and ultimately, what makes them awesome. I go to these movies for those moments when the heroes define themselves, either through action or deliciously overwritten speeches."
The Avengers stars Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Ramanoff/Black Widow, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk, Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury and Tom Hiddleston as Loki.
The Avengers is set to be released in the UK on April 27 and in the US on May 4.
