Speaking to the Tornoto Sun, the director stated that he'll never let hopes of a Firefly resurrection die. "I'll never really accept it," Whedon said. "And I always, in the back of my head, think, 'What if I could get the old gang back together?'"
"Well, you know, it's something I would love to do," Whedon said in regards to getting the Firefly cast back together. "When I made Serenity, I said here's one thing I'll never do again -- a movie based on something that some people know about and some people don't, with tons of characters who all know each other and who you have to introduce. And then my second movie was The Avengers."
"Part of me is like, 'God, it would be great when I finish Avengers 2 to do that,' " Whedon said in regards to revisiting the Firefly universe. I think most people would prefer that Whedon stuck around the MCU beyond Avengers 2, maybe for life in a quasi-George Lucas capacity. Barring an unlikely disaster with the second cinematic outing for Earth's Mightiest Heroes, I'm inclined to believe that Marvel feels the same way. But maybe Whedon will just need a little break after all the superhero theatrics and will look to something else, and maybe it will be a certain renegade spaceship crew.
"I suspect very strongly that after Avengers 2 the next thing I do will be a one-man show. Possibly one monkey."
