Joss Whedon Has Completed An Outline For The Avengers 2
What makes the Marvel Cinematic Universe such a special thing is the way that all of the wide-reaching stories are all brought together and intertwined with a master plan constantly in mind. Judging by the end of The Avengers we are all but guaranteed to see the superhero team go up against the powerful alien/god Thanos in the sequel, but that means that Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy will all have to play towards the end of Phase 2. And apparently what that end is going to look like has already been mapped out.
Joss Whedon - who not only turned The Avengers into one of the best comic book movies of all time, but is also set to write and direct The Avengers 2 and has a long term contract at Marvel that will see him shepherd future films - recently sat down for a chat with Entertainment Weekly and not only talked at length about the making of his superhero epic, but also revealed that he is on his way to writing a script for the big sequel. The story says that they met with the filmmaker just a few days after he finished and submitted the first outline for the movie, meaning that the first details about the story are floating out in the universe somewhere at this moment.
The Avengers 2 is scheduled to be released May 1, 2015 and while nothing is official it's expected that Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo will return as Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and the Hulk (not to mention other actors like Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner). Marvel Studios is also in the midst of developing a S.H.I.E.L.D. television series, which is set to star Clark Gregg (aka Phil Coulson), Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker. Whedon will direct the pilot - which is scheduled to go into production early next year - while his longtime collaborators Jeffrey Bell, Maurissa Tancharoen and Jed Whedon will serve as showrunners should the project be picked up as a series.
