Director Joss Whedon's Marvel's The Avengers was by far the biggest blockbuster of 2012, taking in a massive $623 million domestically and over $1.5 billion worldwide. The filmmaker is also writing and directing The Avengers 2, and recently revealed that the the script will be ready in a few months.
"I've done the outline, I'm writing the script now and so the script should be done in a couple of months. I'm pretty excited about it, I have to say."
When asked how he plans to top his work in Marvel's The Avengers, the filmmaker revealed he wants to go deeper, instead of bigger.
"Don't go bigger, go deeper. The grand thing is that 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."
Marvel's The Avengers stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, and Samuel L. Jackson are expected to return. Joss Whedon also spoke about his role as a creative consultant for Marvel's Phase II movies Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Guardians of the Galaxy.
"It's been pretty equal, 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 diectors if they want to, I try to make myself useful without being intrusive, but I've gotten to sort of be a part of all of them and that's a dream job for a kid like me."
