Leterrier's Avengers

Say what you will about Louis Leterrier’s INCREDIBLE HULK, but the man certainly has thought through THE AVENGERS. Nothing at all about the project is certain at this point, which is why Leterrier thought it might be a good idea to introduce the world to his idea of how the movie should be done. Plausible or not, it’s undeniably awesome:

"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.


My first thought is “brilliant,” but it’s closely followed by “not possible.” Of course, you and I, average JoBlo reader, would probably have little problem sitting through four AVENGERS movies in one summer, and the idea of four different directors with four different visions is practically orgasmic. However, I doubt there’s any way the studio would approve this, as the budget for the “Avengers summer” would be massive, and four films spread out in pieces would surely confuse the general moviegoing public.

If this was somehow able to work, it would be legendary. Lord knows the superhero genre needs to shake things up after a decade, and this would be a great way to do it. But logistically this would be Mount Everest, as plans for putting ONE movie out have already seemed impossible.

Extra Tidbit: I also veto the “under an hour and a half” idea, unless you're not charging me full price.
