Just now, we posted an online rumour that Ultron and the Masters of Evil would play a role in The Avengers 2, and Joss Whedon’s latest quote regarding the sequel certainly gives credit to that. Speaking at the Toronto Film Festival, Whedon described the film’s story as “complex,” and talked about the task of overseeing the entirety of Marvel’s Phase 2. Plus, he disses Christopher Nolan!
“Very talented people are writing and directing these movies, and what I don’t want to be is the guy they dread, who’s going to come in and say,” (as he puts on a British accent), “‘Oh, well I have the power to say change this.’ I’m not that.”
“The creation of the team is not the happy ending,” he says. “It is the beginning of something that is complex and difficult, and now I get to dig a little deeper. And maybe, while I’m digging, just twist that knife. And that’s exciting for me.”
“It’s still in the story stage. But I’ve been working on it pretty much from about an hour before I said, ‘Let’s make a deal.’ It just caught fire with me,” he said. “We’re hard at work. We would like to be not as rushed as we were with the first one.”
Whedon’s comments fill me with hope, and given he has nearly two more years to work on the script I’m sure he’ll deliver something amazing. What do you think will happen in The Avengers 2? Sound off below.
