Joss Whedon spoke to the New York Post about negative reviews for The Avengers:

I went into a bubble when the film came out, but do know that Sam Jackson got pretty huffy. I don't think a flame war is going to help anybody. People are allowed to not like the film, but I do get annoyed when somebody really hasn't done their homework. A lot of reporting in the negative reviews . . . was more like they were reviewing the [superhero] genre than the movie itself.

Clark Gregg talked to Movies.com about possibly coming back for another Marvel movie, whether its at The Vision or a writer director:

I don't know if we'll see Agent Coulson again, but I certainly do his voice in their animated series, The Ultimate Spider-Man, and you never know, there may be a flashback or something sometime. I really hit it off with those guys [at Marvel], and I've talked to them lately about some ways I can continue to work with them, perhaps as a writer or director.

Mark Millar took to his forums (via CBM) to talk about Jim Carrey's casting in Kick-Ass 2:

Nic is really good friends with Jim Carrey and it's well known to everyone that Jim loved the first movie. In fact, I think he had lunch with Vaughn the day before that Conan O'Brien kick-Ass/ Superman duet. So we've been talking very informally about this for a little over two years now. We didn't quite know what Jim was going to be doing in the sequel, but the entire team loves him to bits and I've been a fan since I first saw him. I remember reading an interview with Spielberg, a great one back in Empire for a JAws anniversary, where he was saying that Jim would be his choice for Chief Brodie were he shooting Jaws now. He said he could see the brilliant dramatic range Jim had as well as the comedy people knew him for at that time. For all these reasons, combined with the conversation we had with him on the phone, I'm so genuinely excited about this. I can't wait to see what he does once the cameras are on.
