Joss Whedon agreeing to work on the sequel to his MEGA-hit, The Avengers, might just be the best nerd news of the year. And now we know why. Whedon recently spoke with Co.Create and shared his reasoning for signing on for round two,
There’s a business aspect to it and I would be disingenuous not to say that, but the question for me is, Do I have another story to tell about these people? So we worked on the business side of it and I didn’t think it was going to happen–I was like ‘I’m never going to do this again.’ But once they worked on the business aspect of it I thought that seems fair and cool, so, the question was, Do I have another thing to say? I was in London and I went to a pub and had some fish and chips and a pint and started writing in my notebook. I’m writing if I was going to do this what would I say and 40 minutes later I filled the notebook. So I text my agent and said to make the deal. I’m so in love with that universe and the characters and [the] way they were played and I have so much more I want to do with them. I know I can’t match the success of the first one but I can try to make a better film and that’s what I’m excited about, that’s the new room of fear I’m entering now.
First, who doesn’t want a peek at that notebook? And secondly, Whedon doesn’t believe he’ll match the success of the first one? HA! You are funny, sir. If he truly can make a better film than The Avengers, and I believe he can, I think they’ll easily top the success of the first flick. What do you guys think?
