Avengers and On the Set of Ender's Game

Link, Movies

Orson Scott Card discussing the forthcoming film adaptation of his book, Ender’s Game:

My book was already alive in the mind of every reader. This is writer-director Gavin Hood’s movie, so they were his words, and it was his scene.

His post is long but worth reading. He first offers a cogent explanation for why The Avengers works even though it doesn’t make any sense. Then Card lyrically recounts his experience on the set of the film of his book. His outlook on the project is inspiring.
