Man, this would really suck, but we might be living in a world where Joss Whedon doesn’t direct Avengers 2.
Here’s what he had to say 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 think I might be as torn as he is. On the one hand, he did a great job and I’d love to see him come back. On the other… think of the amazing Whedon projects he has the clout to push through now!Part of me wonders if it is just an issue of nerves. After delivering a massive box office smash like The Avengers to Disney, expectations are going to be ridiculous for the sequel.
