Bringing The A Game
With five solo movies in the can, The Avengers have finally assembled in the biggest superhero mash-up ever. Joss Whedon and his ensemble cast tell Total Film how they've packed all these super egos together into one massive punch for Avengers Assemble.
Total Film finds a surprising amount of heart while creeping around the set of Dark Shadows , the latest collaboration between Tim Burton and Johnny Depp which sees the pair give a tale of family dysfunction some vampiric bite.
Total Film goes head to head with Battleship director Peter Berg, to discover how he has turned a plastic board game into a $200m movie.
We also chat to stars Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgård and Brooklyn Decker, and employ all of our willpower to resist using the 'You sunk my battleship line.' We may or may not have succeeded.
