Joss Whedon Updates On THE AVENGERS Sequel, S.H.I.E.L.D. And Oversight Of PHASE TWO

Declaring his followup to The Avengers will go “Deeper,” rather than “bigger,” writer-director Joss Whedon offers updates for Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series and oversight of other Phase Two movies.

During the Critic's Choice Awards, MTV News caught up with the writer/director of The Avengers, Joss Whedon, when he offered an update for the highly-anticipated 2015 sequel. In addition, the critically acclaimed filmmaker also offered insight into his role as Creative Consultant of other Phase Two films, while also revealing when filming will kickoff for the S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot, and more.



“Don't go bigger; go deeper,” Whedon told MTV News, talking about how he plans to follow up the first Avengers film. “All of these people have met, so you have that out of the way. Now you can spend your time just digging in — and by digging in, I mean with a scalpel, to cause pain. Something I always say to executives is, 'the first weekend is your job and the second weekend is mine,'” said Whedon. “If it had done an amazing job on the first weekend and then disappeared from the screens, then that would be my fault. That was the one I was sort of counting on.” While he just turned in the sequel's outline, Whedon says he's “a couple of months” away from finishing his “Avengers 2” script.

And filming for the S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show should start filming “A week from Tuesday. You have to bring a bit of spectacle to [S.H.I.E.L.D.]; it's got to be bigger than your average cop show,” he said. “But at the end of the day, it's about the peripheral people. It's about the people on the edges of the grand adventures. The whole point of the show is that even with all these big things, the little things matter. It's about people who don't have super powers. There will be some people with powers, there will be FX, and there will be the spectacle of science-fiction storytelling — but all played on a very human, small level. That's the appeal of the thing.”

As creative consultant of Marvel's other Phase Two installments, Whedon says, “I read all the scripts and I give notes on everything. I'll look at cuts when they're ready to show me. I'll talk to directors if they want to. I try to make myself useful without being intrusive. I've gotten to be a part of all of them. That's a dream job for a kid like me.” Whedon also says he's yet to see a cut from Iron Man 3.



Marvel Studios already describes their highly-anticipated sequel to the No. 3 highest grossing film of all time, “Marvel's The Avengers,” as another “big cinematic event.” And expected to feature the reassembly of iconic Marvel super heroes Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow & Nick Fury taking on a new unexpected enemy, new additions to the superhero team up of a lifetime are possible.

Expecting reprisals from Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, and directed by Joss Whedon from a screenplay by Joss Whedon, “Marvel’s The Avengers” sequel is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. And set for release May 1, 2015, the film is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. In addition to the sequel, Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on the Marvel characters including “Iron Man 3” on May 3, 2013; “Thor: The Dark World ” on November 8, 2013; “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” on April 4, 2014; and “Guardians of the Galaxy” on August 1, 2014; and “Ant-Man” on November 6, 2015!
