On the PG-13 rating:

“It’s a challenge to do. Shaun and Hot Fuzz and World’s End are all R-rated films. I like the challenge of making a PG-13 film. Because you’ve got to entertain in a different way. You don’t have the same tools.”

On how the Marvel films mirror the comic books, in terms of connectivity:

“I think they do stand alone. I think that’s what’s kind of clever about the movies, is that they work sort of like the comic books. They’re standalone stories, and there are elements that link them. But I think that’s what makes The Avengers the treat that it is – it’s bringing six disparate characters together.”

Regarding how much humor he’s put into the script he’s been crafting for so many years:

“I think it would be as funny as the other Marvel movies that have come out.”

“If I was Edgar, I wouldn’t cast me in Ant-Man, because I think he obviously has to spread his wings as a director and be seen not to just come with me as a package. Same with Nick. We need to do things separately so we don’t ultimately get seen as coming as a double act,“ said the busy British thesp. “You know, Ant-Man would be enormous fun to be in, but I think Ant-Man himself has to be a lot younger than me for a start. And there probably isn’t a part for me. If Edgar asked me, I’d think about it. But as his friend and his lawyer, I would advise strongly against asking me.


“I loved Judge Dredd as a kid. And I collected it like mad. I had hundreds and hundreds of copies. And then when I was 18, I went away, went to live abroad for two years, and when I came back, I found that my mum had cleared my room, and those hundreds of copies had gone. And I think at that point, my love of that ended for a while until I was in my late twenties.” Frost continued, Now I have a lovely, lovely big office at home, full of lovely graphic novels. And my son can never touch those. I think that was the last thing I shouted to my wife as I left home, ‘Don’t let him touch anything in my office.’ Like a big kid.”
