Joss Whedon Talks “Avengers” Sequel.

The movie hasn’t even opened yet and director Joss Whedon is already talking about his plans for a follow-up to the first installment of the adventures of the Marvel Comics superteam.

In an interview with sci-fi magazine SFX, the director says bigger and louder doesn’t always win the day when it comes to sequels (you taking notes, Michael Bay?).

“By not trying to [go bigger],” he said. “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”

As to the first film, Whedon says of his heroes: “I want to know what makes them tick,” says Whedon. “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.”
