Joss talks Much Ado, Agents of SHIELD, Avengers 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy. This interview with Moviefone includes some good comments from Joss on how he feels approaching Avengers 2.

My favorite quote about Joss filming 'Much Ado' in his own home:
"For a movie that's about perception and misunderstanding and everybody watching everybody else and not really seeing them, you could not ask for a better space. "


This is a good interview.
I liked the "What is Comic-Con?" quip. A nice way to end a good interview.
I liked his comments on why Guardians of the Galaxy is going to work. It makes sense, you don't want a director who works around the crazy, you want a director who loves the crazy and wants to make the audience love it, too.
If anyone can convince the world a comic book movie with a racoon is going to work, it's James Gunn.
@Jason_M_Bryant: Well written. There have been other directors who have embraced the crazy, but forgotten to communicate why we should love the crazy too.

This is especially true when changes have to be made to the characters for a 2 hour movie. The essence must remain, and why the character is beloved must shine through.
"If anyone can convince the world a comic book movie with a racoon is going to work, it's James Gunn."

Amen to that... In a BIG way!
