While Iron Man 2 is considered the weakest of Marvel Studios releases, it was still a hit both critically and financially for the studio. However, it’s undeniable that the film was a bit overloaded with characters and set-up for The Avengers and that’s a complaint that screenwriter Justin Theroux definitely agrees with. In a recent interview with Bad Taste, the actor & screenwriter commented on the divisive response that the sequel received.
Theroux then went on to praise Marvel Studios and their love for their characters and how the studio isn’t just “trying to throw something out”. However, initially the screenwriter had some doubts about The Avengers was going to work on screen, to which he is glad that he was proven wrong about.
To be honest, Theroux wasn’t alone as I’m sure a lot of Hollywood weren’t quite sure this one was going to work. Let us know your thoughts on Theroux’s comments in the section below.
