Joss Whedon wants smaller and more personal sequel to Avengers Assemble
March 9 2012
With the release of Marvel Avengers Assemble fast approaching, Joss Whedon has given his thoughts on a sequel revealing that it would need to be "smaller" and "more personal".
Speaking to SFX, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator says he doesn't want a follow-up to "rehash" what worked in the first film and reveals how the sequel would outdo Avengers Assemble saying "By not trying to. By being smaller. More personal, more painful.
By being the next thing that should happen to these characters, and not just a rehash of what seemed to work the first time. By having a theme that is completely fresh and organic to itself."
Whedon revealed that he strived to give his Avengers enough screen time to see "what makes them awesome" adding "I want to know what makes them tick, what makes them flawed, what makes them fight - and ultimately, what makes them awesome.
I go to these movies for those moments when the heroes define themselves, either through action or deliciously overwritten speeches."
Marvel Avengers Assemble opens on April 26 and features the star studded cast of Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Paul Bettany, Gwyneth Paltrow, Stellan Skarsgård, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg and Jenny Agutter.
