Joss Whedon Reiterates Why He's Not Directing Marvel's AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

With the Russos all set to helm the third and fourth installments to the Avengers franchise, Joss Whedon explains here why he's not returning to the director's chair after Age of Ultron. Check it out!



An exhausted Joss Whedon was putting the finishing touches on Avengers: Age of Ultron just a few weeks ago when he spoke with Entertainment Weekly for their current magazine issue. And among things they discussed was the fact that he will not be directing nor writing the third and fourth installments, Avengers: Infinity War - Part I and Part II. “Every movie I have ever made has been an ensemble piece of increasingly enormous proportions,” Joss Whedon told EW while sitting next to Marvel Sudios honcho Kevin Feige. “That many balls in the air, it’s only going to get bigger with Infinity War. I’m not going to be able to give it what I would need to. It’s a young man’s game.”

While doing an impression of Al Pacino in The Godfather, Kevin Feige said to Whedon, “Just when you think you’re out, you get pulled back in.” Which prompted the Age of Ultron director to point his finger at the Marvel producer,  and quip: “That’s the other reason I’m not making a third one.”

As Marvel Studios finally announced earlier this week, the two-part Avengers: Infinity War will be helmed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier directing duo Anthony and Joe Russo, who are currently prepping for Captain America: Civil War to start shooting later this month. The Russos will also be reteaming with screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely on the Phase 3 event, which will see Earth's Mightiest Heroes take on the mad titan Thanos, played by Josh Brolin. Anyhow, Infinity War: Part I is set for release on May 4, 2018, while Part II will open May 3, 2019.
