Scarlett Johansson thinks ‘Joss Whedon will protect Avengers franchise’

Joss will do a great job

Whenever a new comic book movie comes out, fanboys get nervous about the retelling of the story and consequently rip the film to shreds if it doesn’t measure up.  Comic fans can really make or break a film based on a comic series.

Actress Scarlet Johansson has reassured comic fans everywhere that the ‘Avengers’ franchise is safe in the hands of director Joss Whedon and that they shouldn’t be concerned. Johansson explains;

“Joss is a fanboy. I think that Joss is going to protect the franchise by staying true to the characters’ integrity.”

Scarlet went on to compare Whedon’s directing techniques to Jon Favreau, with whom she worked on Iron Man 2.  She said;

“I think Jon Favreau is such a different director from Joss Whedon. The flavor is different, their fingerprints are different. They just have a different way of storytelling – same with [Thor director] Kenneth Branagh.”

Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlet Johansson and Robert Downey Jr. star in ‘The Avengers’, which will be coming to a cinema near you on May 4, 2012.

Check out the teaser trailer for the film below.
