    Great actor but a bad choice only because he’s notorious for being extremely difficult to work with. I can’t see that working out for Marvel, especially in a big cast movie like Avengers 3. I definitely don’t see Whedon getting along with him.

    Didn’t he get pissy about getting snubbed for an award and announce he was quitting acting not too long ago?

  • sigh

    @Sassypants: money talks though, in this case with marvel, it’s big big money lol

    Joaquin is not notorious about being difficult to work with. Directors and co-workers love him. He’s not one to make chit chat with the press; that’s where the difficult rep comes in, but who cares? He’s always brilliant on the big screen, that’s what counts.

    I don’t think he wants to be a part of a blockbuster that could involve sequels. He’s turned down super hero roles before.

  • Sassypants

    Well regardless, I think he’s a great actor and has great range so I can see him play anything really.

  • YES
