Scarlett Johansson has revealed how she believes that The Avengers director Joss Whedon will do his best to protect The Avengers franchise due to his being a fan boy. Scarlett also took the time to reveal the differences between Joss and Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau.
Scarlett previously worked with Favreau for Iron Man 2, where she appeared as the character Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow and she will be reprising that role for the Whedon directed The Avengers. Johansson also spoke a little about Thor director Kenneth Branagh.
She explained, "Joss is a fanboy. I think that Joss is going to protect the franchise by staying true to the characters' integrity. I think Jon Favreau is such a different director from Joss Whedon. The flavour is different, their fingerprints are different. They just have a different way of storytelling - same with [Thor director] Kenneth Branagh." The Avengers is set to be released on May 4, 2012.
