I think they struck a really good balance. There's obviously action, you've got all these super heroes, there's gonna be constant battle, I think every ten pages, there's going to be some sort of action, but you can have all the action in the world, if you don't have some substance, you got nothing. I don't want to sh*t talk other movies, I know a lot of other movies like that where it's all action and no heart. It's not easy trying to bring all those characters together and find a story, but the best thing about Joss is that Joss is a fan, Joss is a comic book guy. It feels so nice working with a guy that is well, the people I am trying to please is Joss. Joss is one of those dudes. And if Joss is happy with the dialog, if Joss is happy with the wardrobe, if Joss is happy, then I'm happy. Because he's Comic-Con, he's one of these dudes who would be in the audience geeking out, so if he's happy, I'm happy.

It'll be a fun movie. But it's weird. Usually it happens when people are much older. I'm only 29! It's like, 'We need younger, fresher!' It's a totally different take on it. It's not Mary Jane and Peter. It's Gwen Stacy and Peter.
