I think the whole point of a team movie is to explain why every member is there, so it's about getting those moments for each character. I think we end up identifying with Steve Rogers, he's our intro into the modern world – because he's only recently joined it. Sometimes we refer to him as Luke Skywalker... but obviously a lot less whiny.

This is what I get from people when they talk to me about the original Catwoman and compare it to the latter ones," Newmar said. "I think people prefer the more humorous one, the lighter one. People seem to complain that the recent ones are too dark in spirit. But that's what reflects what's going on. That's what film and acting and everything is. ...

That's it! I'm taking down the Skrull armada single-handed! I'm just kidding. "Skrull armada single-handed..." No, they're Kree! No, I'm just kidding. Yes, there's definitely new stuff. Much different, new stuff for Agent Coulson to do in this one. You know, it's kind of "all hands on deck" in terms of combating the threat that has shown up. And Joss... Joss is a master at taking what we know about each one of these characters, the superheroes and Agent Coulson, and building on what's already there.
