Joss Whedon: THE AVENGERS 2 Is A ‘Glorious Challenge’

Explaining whether there’s any pressure writing and directing the anticipated follow-up to The Avengers, and final chapter to Marvel's Phase Two, make the jump and check out what Joss Whedon offers!

Having delivered an outline that, according to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, already consists of “seven things worth the price of admission,” The Avengers writer-director Joss Whedon seemingly has a good grasp of where to take Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the highly-anticipated 2015 sequel.

“The only pressure is the pressure that is there every time I do a new project,”
the filmmaker recently admitted to Total Film magazine. “Is it going to be good? It is going to be different? Is there even a reason to make another one? Is there a reason for this to be my next thing? Can I pull it off? I am not going to try and match the box office of the first one because that would be bonkers. Yes, there is a certain level of safety [knowing there's a huge audience] - because now people know about The Avengers and they like the characters so it probably won't completely crash and burn. But you don't want to just get by and do something that is merely OK. If I am going to dedicate three years of my short life to this then I want to do something that I have never done before. So I think of The Avengers 2 as a glorious challenge - it is a sequel, yes, but how can it be different? Of course, the pressure that I don't feel, my body internalises. It happens all the time. I was comfortable making the first Avengers, but I didn't sleep during it.”

Returning Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow, while introducing new Marvel heroes, Marvel’s The Avengers 2 stars Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner & Samuel L. Jackson, the screenplay is written and directed by Joss Whedon. The film is set for release on May 1, 2015.
