Yo, Joss Whedon! You’re out in public, so give us some damn Avengers 2 scoopage!
I sometimes wonder if that’s what reporters yell to Joss whenever he appears on the red carpet for anything. Fortunately for us he always seems ready to oblige, as was the case on the recent Iron Man 3 premiere red carpet in Los Angeles. Desde Hollywood asked the filmmaker about some details about the upcoming superhero sequel. Naturally, one of the questions concerned Iron Man star Robert Downey, Jr. and his future in the franchise, but the topic of the villain in The Avengers 2 also came up, and that answer offered some interesting new insight.
What, pray tell, could that be? How about the revelation that Thanos may not be the villain in The Avengers 2 after all, and Whedon and Co. are, in fact, setting him up for “the grand finale?” Here’s what Whedon had to say:
“Thanos is more powerful. He’s not someone you just trot out and punch him. Like you did in the comics, you want him to be threading through the universe and to save the big finale for the big finale. He’s definitely a part of what I’ve got going on. The thing about The Avengers is, that they are very powerful, but they aren’t very stable. There’ll definitely be some people who are gonna shake them up in the next installment!”
To hear that from Whedon’s own mouth, as well as other nuggets from the interview, press play on the embedded video below:
