Whedon: No divas in Avengers cast

Joss Whedon has insisted the set of Avengers Assemble was an ego-free zone.

Despite boasting an all-star cast including Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth and Samuel L Jackson, the director said everyone was prepared to muck in.

"If I meet any divas, I'll let you know. The Avengers cast was as ego-free and as cooperative and as collaborative and as gentle as any cast I've worked with," Joss revealed.

"They all care, they're there to get it done, and there's no posturing. Every now and then, one of them would look at the guy beside him and say, 'Is he cooler looking than me? His outfit, he's bigger' but apart from that it was just fun making an entire film where all the corsets were worn by men."

Joss's new film, The Cabin In The Woods, is a horror story with a twist which has already been causing a stir with critics.

"I always like to surprise an audience when I can," he explained.

"I like them to know pretty much what they're in for, this is a horror movie, but then I like to turn their expectations on the head as often as I can. It's the most exciting thing in the world for me when a film genuinely surprises me."
