Here's another snippet from the extensive Entertainment Weekly discussion with "it" director of the moment, Joss Whedon. Inside the magazine's pages, Whedon touches on what filming The Avengers taught him and how he'll apply those lessons in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Said the geek icon, "I want to be clearer about how I engage the audience, and where I take them. I want more control visually, more time to prep it. Not that I didn't dictate every shot - I did. But there's only so much you can do when you're making a summer film when the ball is already rolling as fast as it was when I got in. Why do it again if you can't do it better?"

On looking back at his 2012 smash hit, Whedon reflected, "I don't think you'd look at it and go, 'This is a model of perfect structure.' You'd go, 'This is working.' I like it. I'm proud of it and I like its imperfections. The thing I cared about most - making a summer movie like the ones from my childhood - is the thing I pulled off."

You can read more from Whedon in the latest edition of EW, available on newsstands now.
