Joss Whedon has recently provided an update on the forthcoming sequel to The Avengers, confirming that the shoot proper will begin early next year, as well as revealing that he already had the plot in mind even before Avengers premiered on the big screens:
“We should start shooting I think in February,” says Whedon. “I didn’t think I was gonna do the second one, but I had an idea for it before I had figured out the first one. You go into a movie not assuming that there’s going to be [another one]. I’ve seen plenty of movies that were the first part of the trilogy that never happened and it’s terrible.
“You don’t save anything for the trip back. Having said that, though, I did sort of know, ‘Well if they were to come back, I know what’s going to happen… it’s going to be awful.’”
Whedon also reveals that he is ecstatic about his role as creative consultant for Marvel’s Phase 2, and confident that the next wave of films will be able to live up to the standards set by the first:
“I’m really excited because I’ve gotten to look at everything and see behind the curtain on all the stuff, and Kevin Feige has a really clear vision and runs through all these movies,” says Whedon. “They’re all very different, but they really are what the next story should be.”
