The Incredible Hulk director Louis Leterrier spoke with the Los Angeles Times about his upcoming Clash of the Titans remake and shared his thoughts on The Avengers, as well as The First Avengers: Captain America.
On The Avengers:
“I’ll tell you my real dream: To work with Joe Johnston and [“Thor” director] Kenneth Branagh and Jon Favreau and make like a triptych. We do four movies. We release them one a month for the summer. Or even every two weeks or three weeks. And the whole summer would be Avengers summer. So we do it the way they make television shows. One story arc but told in installments by different directors. So all of the directors that touch part of the Avengers world would do a part; we could make the movies shorter, maybe less than an hour and a half, and we use the same sets and save Marvel money. I would love to sit around a table with all of them a kick around the story. That’s my dream..”
On Captain America:
“I have seen some of the design work they’re doing for Captain America and it looks amazing. It’s a period piece and it’s like “Raiders of the Lost Ark” and with more gadgets…”
he goes on to say;
“…so it’s “Raiders” meets “Rocketeer” and “Saving Private Ryan.” It’s going to be so cool.”
The idea of a huge “episodic” Avengers film with each “episode” being helmed by the director of each solo movie is a very cool one, but I’m not sure how plausible it really is. Ultimately The Avengers story will have to span multiple films anyway. It’s just too big to bee contained in one film. How would you guys like The Avengers story to be told?
