Clash of the Titans director Louis Leterrier made the press rounds this weekend in support of his 3D epic, and in the process he revealed that he is on a shortlist to direct The Avengers. The enormous undertaking will bring together all of the title characters from Iron Man, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, and The First Avenger: Captain America. In speaking with AICN, Leterrier said this:
"I am on the shortlist, but I'm at the bottom of the shortlist, I'm sure. (Laughs) I don't know who the other guys are, but I have a great relationship with [Marvel], and I've been very vocal to them and everyone else that I am the one to direct it. I loved my time at Marvel. I loved those guys. They're fantastic. Kevin is such a passionate boss; he gets his hands dirty. It's a universe I want to keep exploring. I was frustrated with The Incredible Hulk. It was like, "That's it? Only one superhero? Can I do more???" We'll see. Time will tell."
The Avengers is set to hit theaters on May 4th, 2012. We will have more production information for you as soon as it is made available.
