Avengers news has been coming in thick and fast over the last few weeks. And now with it being confirmed that Marvel are going to make a sequel to Joss Whedon's adventure an interview with the director and the LA Times has revealed his mindset behind continuing to work on the franchise.
"You know, I'm very torn. It's an enormous amount of work telling what is ultimately somebody else's story, even though I feel like I did get to put myself into it. But at the same time, I have a bunch of ideas, and they all seem really cool."
Whedon also told Entertainment Weekly that a follow up might feature more female cohorts. "Studios will tell you: 'A woman cannot headline an action movie.' After The Hunger Games they might stop telling you that a little bit. Whatever you think of the movie, it's done a great service. And after The Avengers, I think it's changing."
More women = more of a certain Ms. Johannson = happy Greg. So happy in fact that I almost used a "smiley" emoticon. Almost.
