The Avengers was one of the most anticipated movies in recent years and when it was released fans were delighted with what they saw, claiming that it was definitely worth the wait. With such a huge fanbase The Avengers was always going to be a financial success and after spending $220m on the budget, they managed to rake in over $1.5bn worldwide.
However, it appears that not everybody was so pleased with how The Avengers movie turned out. The Dark Knight Rises cinematographer Wally Pfister has hit out at The Avengers claiming that he found the movie appalling, as its storytelling was all over the place.
Pfister explained, “What’s really important is storytelling. None of it matters if it doesn’t support the story. I thought The Avengers was an appalling film. They’d shoot from some odd angle and I’d think, why is the camera there? Oh, I see, because they spent half a million on the set and they have to show it off. It took me completely out of the movie. I was driven bonkers by that illogical form of storytelling.”
Wally Pfister is set to move away from cinematography in favour of making his directorial debut. The currently untitled project will be written Jack Paglen and is set to be produced by Christopher Nolan and will star Emma Thomas. The movie is yet to be given an official release date but is expected to be out in 2014.
