Joss Whedon: 'Avengers' sequel was a "nightmare" due to expanded cast. "Shoot me in the face! It is a nightmare. I long for the simple movies like Serenity! This is the hardest juggling act I have ever, ever tried to pull off."

Mark Ruffalo is a gift so while the juggle may have horrid having more Hulk is going to be awesome.

I long for the simple movies like Serenity!

Interesting kind of spoiler regarding The Vision in that story - one that would disappoint me greatly - although it's hard to know if it was a typo or intentional, as there are other spelling /editorial mistakes
I long for simple movies like Serenity also.
TallMichaelJ, what spoiler would that be? I didn't see anything regarding the Vision we didn't already know.
"...together with an expanded nonvoice role for Paul Bettany's android,"

I read this as The Vision doesn't speak in the movie, which would be odd, because he certainly speaks in the comics, and it's hard to believe you'd hire Bettany and not use that well known Jarvis tone, or some variation of it

Or maybe it means his previous work was a "voice role" as Jarvis, and in this one he's "really" acting. Whatever the case it's not particularly well written
Why wouldn't the Vision talk? And don't tell me it's because he has nothing to say.
I think it merely means he is a whole being with a body and face, as opposed to the disembodied voice of J.A.R.V.I.S.
I keep thinking that the Paul Bettany stuff is a bit of a fake-out. I can see him being used as JARVIS again and maybe voicing Vision at the outset, but what if Vision's body is used to save a dead character's mind ? Never read Avengers comics, but I know Wonder Man's mind was saved in the cartoons this way (and I'm guessing that's from the comics) Wonder Man in the films, though (and too cheesy a superhero name to bring him in anyway), so maybe whoever dies in the film ends up in his spot. And voicing Vision...

Just seems like too good a chance to pass up, especially with speculation that the shiny thing in his head is one of the Infinity Stones (Soul Gem?), rather than just the robot's solar power source and/or source of his/its laser beams.
