Because, you know, posting about The Avengers for the third time in a row is charming. This time, it’s about director and writer Joss Whedon’s insights into his second Marvel movie.
Whedon mentioned that The Avengers was bringing all the superheroes together under one film, establishing them together in one world. For the sequel, we’re familiar with it, so he wants to expand and explore that world and get into their heads. And consequences. Oh, there will be consequences for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The most promising bit?
“The whole movie is a process of changing everything and keeping everything the same. You want to hit all the things that made people love the first movie, but you also want to make something new or why are you here … I don’t want to make The Avengers again – I did that one time. With the ending it was important for me that we felt a progression. We didn’t just feel, ‘well, no problem, we cleaned that up!’ because that’s an episode of television. That’s not a film. This film, there’s more at stake and we take that seriously.”
So not only should we expect a fun Marvel movie, but one that will shake things up for the future movies. Think Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but on a bigger scale. By which I mean, a lot more superheroes involved.
I’m looking forward to Tony Stark and Bruce Banner tying the knot, and Stark projecting his father issues on Steve Rogers. Again.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron comes out — oh, you already know when. I really cannot wait.
