Joss Whedon continues his weird speaking out against Marvel in the latest podcast from Empire Magazine.
On the show, speaking about Avengers: Age Of Ultron, the director revealed that he wanted to add Spider-man and Captain Marvel to the already bloated line-up – it’s interesting to note that, at various times, both WERE rumoured to be in the movie.
Apparently Whedon wanted them both to debut in the movie but wasn’t able to or as he puts it himself: “I would have put both [Spider-Man and Captain Marvel] in, but neither of the deals were made. And then they were like, ‘We’re making a Captain Marvel movie and we’ve got ‘Spider-Man’ as a property,’ and I’m like, ‘I’ve already locked my film you f#@kers! Thanks for nothing.”
He talks about it at the 26 minute mark below and beware, it’s NSFW.
Would you have liked to see them both appear in AoU? We can’t imagine they’d have been given much time to breathe but still… it would have been pretty exciting
