You might be tired of hearing about The Avengers, but guess what? Becoming one of the highest grossing superhero movies of all time tends to get you some press. Which is why we’re already talking about Avengers 2. Specifically, whether or not Joss Whedon will return to direct. Whedon spoke recently with L.A. Time’s Hero Complex about his plans, if any, for the sequel.
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.
It’s true Whedon is more well know for spearheading is own creations: Buffy, Firefly, Dr. Horrible, to name a few. But he did very much put his own stamp on The Avengers and it’s a stamp I’d like to see on the sequel. What do you guys think, should Whedon jump right in for a sequel or let someone else take the reins?
‘Course, before we see an Avengers 2 all those other Marvel movies need sequels first. Take Thor 2 for instance, The Avengers already gave us a nice lead in to where they might go, what with Loki being taken back to Asgard as Thor’s prisoner, will that play a part in the sequel? I’m going to go on record with a, “Yes.” I think it’s a no brainer we’ll see the ramifications for Loki’s action in The Avengers play out in Thor 2. He’s already been banished once, what new punishment will Odin have for him now?
Chris Hemsworth has a different take on it, though. He sees the possibility for Loki’s redemption in Thor 2. In this short, red carpet interview from MTV Hemsworth talks about his thoughts of the Loki/Thor relationship and what Loki needs to do if he ever wants his brother’s forgiveness.
Oh, and skip to 1:10 mark if you want to miss out on Hemsworth discussing the height difference between him and Kristin Stewart in Snow White and the Huntsman…SNOOZE!
Ah man, can we really get a scene in Thor 2 where Loki brings muffins to apologize! That’d be awesome. Do you think Loki redeemable?
