What's next for Earth's Mightiest Heroes? Director Joss Whedon seems rather comfortable in his plans for the upcoming "Avengers" sequel, though his lips are sealed on the details. Well, mostly sealed, at least.
"The creation of the team is not the happy ending," Whedon told 24 Hours of his "Avengers 2" ideas. "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."
Whedon also spoke a bit about how he plans to get involved with Marvel's other upcoming movies — which is to say, not much at all.
"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 … 'Oh, well I have the power to say change this.' I'm not that," he offered.
That falls in line with what Whedon recently told MTV News about James Gunn's take on "Guardians of the Galaxy."
"He has a very twisted take on it, but it all comes from a real love for the material. It's going to be hard for the humans to keep up," he said. "I know he's going to come from left field and I'm going to go, 'What?' And then, 'Of course, why didn't I think of that?' And then I'm going to beat him!"
