Joss Whedon Says He's "Torn" About Returning To Direct AVENGERS 2
The director briefly touches on returning to helm the now officially coinfirmed sequel to The Avengers. Will we get a second movie out of Mr Whedon? It's still up in the air, but he has some "cool ideas"..
With the first movie currently making all the money there is on the planet, Marvel have confirmed what we already knew to be inevitable - we will see a sequel to The Avengers. But will we see Joss Whedon back in the director's chair? Kevin Feige has already revealed that there is an option in his contract, but will the man himself want to take advantage of it? While speaking to LA Times' Hero Complex Whedon sounds uncertain, and definitely seems to be in two minds about it..
“You know, I’m very torn. It’s an enormous amount of work telling what is ultimately somebody else’s story, even though I feel like I did get to put myself into it. But at the same time, I have a bunch of ideas, and they all seem really cool.”
I'm sure he's just feeling a bit jaded after all the hard work from the first movie and will realize in time that he must return. It's really very simple, he has no choice! Seriously though, to me he sounds worried that a sequel might veer out of his control a little but I really doubt after the massive success of the first movie, Marvel are going to be too heavy handed with Whedon's ideas for the second. Who knows, I think he'll be back but we shall see. I don't suppose I need to ask what you guys want to see happen?
