James Cameron's been doing a fair bit of talking recently as he begins down the long road of hype for his forthcoming Avatar sequels (just three years to go, Na'vi fans), and now he's turned his attention to The Avengers.
Speaking to MTV, the big budget director shared his thoughts on the success of Marvel's action epic, which recently passed the $1.5bn global box office mark.
"I thought it was a real crowd-pleaser, lots of fun… funnier than [I expected]."
Avengers is one of the few movies to come close to Cameron's own box office records, although he seemed relieved that he still holds the title.
"They didn't break the $2bn barrier… They got close. There's only two in the club," he joked, referring to his double whammy of Titanic and Avatar.
"I want Hollywood to be as successful and vibrant as it always has," continued Cameron. "Hopefully a movie will come along next year and show everyone what's possible because that just benefits us all."
"On the other hand, if that shouldn't happen for another ten years that would be good too. ... It's kind of a no-lose situation. We managed to push Titanic right over the $2 billion mark with the re-release, so I'm happy about that."
