Joss Whdeon is gearing up to kick some more Marvel ass... in a good way. He's currently in the process of developing The Avengers 2, a S.H.E.I.L.D. TV series, and will also serve as a creative advisor on all of Marvel's other movies in the Phase 2 plan. In a recent interview with 24 Hours, Whedon talks about his role in the second phase of Marvel master movie plan and the themes of The Avengers 2.
Very talented people are writing and directing these movies, and what I don't want to be is the guy they dread, who's going to come in and say" - here, Whedon affects a pompous British accent - "'Oh, well I have the power to say change this.' I'm not that.
He then goes on to reveal where he will be taking The Avengers next,
The creation of the team is not the happy ending. It is the beginning of something that is complex and difficult, and now I get to dig a little deeper. And maybe, while I'm digging, just twist that knife. And that's exciting for me.
I think we all breathed a sigh of relief when Whedon officially signed on for The Avengers 2. The other projects he's working on with the studio is just an awesome bonus! I have no doubt that Whedon will once again deliver a great film that fans are going to enjoy! What do you think about what Whedon had to say here?
Marvel's The Avengers 2 is set to be released May 1, 2015. Iron Man 3 will be released on May 3, 2013, Thor: The Dark World on November 8, 2013, Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014 and Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1, 2014. Ant-Man might be worked in there somewhere.
