Whedon Says Avengers 2 Script Should be Done in a Few Months

We're still more than two years away from the release of Marvel's The Avengers 2, but don't think they're not hard at work on it already. Writer/director Joss Whedon told MTV he is already hammering away at the script.

"I've done the outline, I'm writing the script now and so the script should be done in a couple of months. I'm pretty excited about it, I have to say."

When asked what approach he's taking to the script, whether it's a bigger template than the previous film, Whedon offered these grim words:

"Don't go bigger, go deeper. The grand thing is that all of these people have met so you have that out of the way. Now you can spend your time just digging in and by digging in, I mean with a scalpel, to cause pain."

Whedon also spoke about the upcoming television series, Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D., which begins very soon ("We start shooting a week from Tuesday.") and he offered some insight into what the show will be like.

"You've got to bring a little bit of spectacle to it. It's gotta be bigger than your average cop show, but at the end of the day it's about the peripheral people, it's about the people on the edges of the grand adventures. The whole point of this show is that even with all these big things, the little things matter. So it's about people who don't have super powers. There will be some people with powers, there will be effects, the spectacle of Science Fiction story telling, but all played on a very human/small level."

And as we know, Whedon is functioning as a creative consultant exclusively for Marvel Studios and lending his talents to the other films (Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Guardians of the Galaxy) if they need it and it seems there hasn't been one that needs his attention more than others.

"It's been pretty equal, I read all the scripts and I give notes on everything. I'll look at cuts when they're ready to show me. I'll talk to diectors if they want to, I try to make myself useful without being intrusive, but I've gotten to sort of be a part of all of them and that's a dream job for a kid like me."

Marvel's The Avengers 2 will hit theaters on May 1, 2015, and while the cast is currently unconfirmed, its very likely to again include Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson.
