It’s not much–I mean, it’s really not much, but in an interview with 24 hours, Joss Whedon did give a tiny hint about what he’s thinking for “The Avengers 2″ (presumably that will get a better title soon).
The interview is mostly about his low-budget, low-tech version of “Much Ado About Nothing,” but of course the Marvel films come up (early reviews of “Much Ado” have been good, but hey, the play is pretty hard to mess up). Whedon recently signed a deal that not only puts him in charge of “The Avengers 2,” but also makes him something of an overseer for the whole Marvel movie universe. In regards to this, he said:
“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” – here, Whedon affects a pompous British accent – “‘Oh, well I have the power to say change this.’ I’m not that.”
As for the “Avengers” sequel plot, Whedon said:
“The creation of the team is not the happy ending,” he said. “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.”
So does that mean there will be some internecine strife in “The Avengers?” Some bickering? Some mistrust? Sounds like a good way to go to me.
