Currently in Ireland for the premiere of Much Ado About Nothing, Joss Whedon briefly addressed The Avengers 2 during the films Q&A. " I can't make it bigger....but I can make it better".

Much Ado About Nothing gets its U.S. premiere next month at SXSW but the film has already had its European premiere at the Dublin International Film Festival earlier today. Of course, during the films Q&A following the screening the discussion turned to The Avengers sequel.

Responding to questions about doing more Shakespeare, Whedon says he doesn't want to do another one exactly like he did Much Ado About Nothing. He says that he needs to keep trying different things from a creative standpoint. From there, the discussion turned to The Avengers sequel.

Whedon: When I first considered doing Avengers 2, my first question was what can I do that's new? Because I can't make it bigger....but I can make it better.

The moderator asks about his philosophy for Avengers 2.
Whedon: Death, death and death. (Crowd applauds madly.)

If you listen to the audio (you can find it by clicking the source link below) it's obvious that Joss was being his usual humorous self. But then again with Joss, it's almost guaranteed there will be a death in the film. Surprisingly, there were no question about the S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot.

Hopefully its actually sad and not played for laughs this time (or not retconned if Coulson truly is alive in SHIELD)
DJRock93 - 2/23/2013, 8:41 PM
Death of characters, Death Thanos' love, and death of the haters

Joss thanks for giving Cap the most screen time and making him even more boss than in Captain America. Loved the more comic accurate suit too.

Thanos assembles the Masters of Evil, Fury gets killed by the Serpent Society "Tired of these mother[frick]er snakes on this goddamn Helicarrier. The Avengers rise from ashes with help from the Guardians.

I really hope WB/DC wakes up one day and hires their Joss Whedon for Justice League, Paul Dini. seriously, the guy has history in translating DC characters, just give him live action
AmazingFantasy - 2/23/2013, 9:12 PM
Make it bigger. Thanos. Spider-Man. Other countries if possible #yolo #blackpanther
thorhulk77 - 2/23/2013, 9:12 PM
Thanos!
Umm - 2/23/2013, 9:14 PM
Hopefully this movie doesn't feel like Transformers:Superhero Edition..........
GUNSMITH - 2/23/2013, 9:15 PM
HONESTLY PLEASE DO ULTRON..LEAVE THANOS FOR GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. YOU DON'T WANNA BE REPETITIVE..AVENGERS 1= ALIENS.....AVENGERS 2= ALIENS?..GOTTA HAVE MORE VARIETY..BAD GUYS COME FROM EVERYWHERE..NOT JUST FROM OUTER SPACE.

Joss Whedon...has a knack for simply saying the right thing. Normally I'm very wary of people like this, because more often than it turns out that they're full of shit. He's delivers the goods though, time and time again. I'll say one thing, if his luck HAS to run out once in the near future, I'd rather it be the SHIELD show rather than the movie franchises. Give me glorious, big budget CBMs any day of the week.

"I can't make it bigger.....but I can make it better."

I sure hope so lol.


And yeah, Thanos, which should be good (hopefully), death of Widow and Hawkeye (hopefully), and hopefully Thor kicks more a$$ than he did in Avengers.
MJPETTY7 - 2/23/2013, 9:20 PM
maybe they'll kill Hawkeye... yay...
thorhulk77 - 2/23/2013, 9:21 PM
@jCameron

Thanks for being a troll.
Tainted87 - 2/23/2013, 9:22 PM
He's always playing about killing off characters. You guys are taking this too seriously, way too seriously.
DanteSparda - 2/23/2013, 9:23 PM
Thanos hell yeah!

Also by the sound of it it looks like Avengers 2 it's going to be a more serious movie, it is me or does every Marvel movie from Phase 2 look more serious than in Phase One? Not that I mind as long as they're good.
LFANCH - 2/23/2013, 9:24 PM
I would prefer to see ultron leading the masters of evil in avengers 2. they already have a few villains on they could use in it. abomination, the leader, the destroyer, and the whiplash armor still exists and can be worn by someone else. I would love to see the movie open with ultron going bad and causing a breakout in a high tech shield prison
TheSuperguy - 2/23/2013, 9:25 PM
I'm not gonna focus on AVENGERS 2 right now, too many other movies to talk about that come out way sooner than that.
Durango95 - 2/23/2013, 9:26 PM
Hey Whedon? Shut the [frick] up.
JDUKE25 - 2/23/2013, 9:39 PM










just kidding lol

bazinga85 - 2/23/2013, 9:49 PM
@JDUKE25
Nice concept art
aztecRaingod - 2/23/2013, 9:50 PM
Jduke, that Thor drawing is pretty special. Then I saw that Liefeld Cap America drawing. HAH ! GOOD ONE ! =)
Ace101 - 2/23/2013, 9:51 PM
Joss saying "Death, death and death " reminded me of the rohirim charge in LOTR:ROTK lol
Ace101 - 2/23/2013, 9:56 PM
Joss whedon will deliver another amazing movie no doubt about it. Now....i need a thor:TDW trailer like right now!!
SkateandDestroy88 - 2/23/2013, 9:56 PM
One thing for sure if I had one and a half billion dollars I'd spend it all on crack and invite fifteen people from this web sight, and well yeah could imagine how gacked out we would get.
DanteSparda - 2/23/2013, 10:01 PM
@JDUKE25

Pretty cool man! Also I lold at the Liefeld's Cap.

@Nomis

Historically trolls senseless whining have never been considered as true backlash
