The Avengers as Star Wars characters:
INT: Is it hard to give every character a decent share of screen time?
WHEDON: I think the whole point of a team movie is to explain why every member is there, so it’s about getting those moments for each character. I think we end up identifying with Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), he’s out intro into the modern world — because he’s only recently joined it. Sometimes we refer to him as Luke Skywalker … but obviously a lot less whiny.
INT: Does that mean you’ve got a Han Solo?
WHEDON: Well, that would be Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.)!
