“However, it seems as if it is director Joss Whedon who most enjoyed the inclusion of Agent Coulson in the superhero ensemble due to the fact that the character takes part in some of his favourite scenes (which he wrote). “Coulson is the face of S.H.I.E.L.D in a way that Nick Fury isn’t. Nick Fury stays in the background pulling the strings, while Coulson is the guy in the trenches alongside ‘The Avengers.’ His relationship with Steve Rogers is one of my favorites. There are so many characters in this film with a dry wit, so I wanted to find some other dynamic Coulson could have with Captain America and it hit me, ‘Oh my god, he’s a fan boy!’ Giving him a man crush on Captain America not only lent itself to some of the funniest scenes, but also established the type of relationship they had, which led to the whole trading card run in the scene, which is possibly my favorite thing in the movie.”—
Can you talk about the takes on that particular scene? [referencing the 'break up scene']
I remeber there were alot of takes on andrews side-
(audience and cast memberes start laughing, while Andrew playfully punches Jesses' arm)
(flustered, begins to back-track) no, no, no, please, uh no I was actually shocked that he was able to sustain this intensity because David Fincher likes to shoot a lot of takes and he was driving the scene-but what I was going to say was that Ive never ever seen-and i've been in seven movies- seen in film an actor maintain that focus and intensity and emotional breadth the way Andrew did that day. It was shocking, and it was intimidating, and it was inspiring, and made for an uncomfortable car ride home together because he stirred me so, so deeply (audience awws)... It was exhilirating to experience, and frightening, frankly.
(audience and cast members cheer)
(clearly embarrassed,with his head down) I'm not as eloquent as Jesse, sorry... I don't know... yeah, I think he's great.
“I’m extremely fond of Chris Evans and I think he is one of the most underrated actors out there. I watch him and I think to myself, here is a guy who is wearing a stretchy American flag suit and I absolutely believe him. How is he doing this? The other thing I love about Chris is that he’s kind of this tough guy from Boston, but he also is a sensitive artist who really has an opinion. Our characters are very connected because Steve Rogers was close with Howard Stark and there’s something definitive and tangible about their relationship. If Steve Rogers and Tony Stark’s relationship doesn’t work, then the film doesn’t work.”—Robert Downey Jr (If Steve Rogers And Tony Stark’s Relationship Doesn’t Work, Then THE AVENGERS Doesn’t Work)
