Joss Whedon Talks Avenger 2 & Hulk Spinoff

Joss Whedon has spoken about how he plans to follow up billion dollar box office hit The Avengers. Speaking about what fans can expect from The Averngers 2 which is already set for release in May 2015 the Geek God director replied

“Death, death and more death…  I can’t do any bigger, so I’m trying to do better.”

Probed for his opinions about the prospect of a new solo adventure for The Incredible Hulk , Whedon seemed more cautious than some recent reports about the potential project would have lead fans to believe.

“It would be very, very hard. The problem is he is a very popular character, but he’s not a superhero. Half of him is a superhero, half is a werewolf. You can’t structure it like a superhero movie.The one thing you have in your favour would be Mark Ruffalo. But right now I don’t know if they have plans to do that or not, because he works so well as part of a greater whole. By himself, it’s tough.”

Recent reports had speculated that a new Hulk adventure based on the popular Planet Hulk comics story arc was being planned, possibly even setting up the Hulk as the eventual villain for the third Avengers film. However given that Whedon is overseeing the whole of phase two of Marvel’s sperhero movie plans those reports now seem well wide of the mark given these most recent comments
