Now that the studio has officially announced Marvel's The Avengers sequel's release date and the original writer-director's return, Joss Whedon took that into account while promoting the box office behemoth's premiere in Japan last week. In speaking with Gizmodo Japan, Whedon not only teased the anticipated sequel with a character addition, but also the unnamed TV series he's developing with Marvel Studios.
I would like to make note that despite Google's translation of the Q&A segment below being barely understandable in some areas, you get the gist of the questions and Whedon's response to them.
Can we expect a larger event, a big team, a big villain in the next film?
“It seems so. Normally It would not be larger because the sequel, and I want to reduce the contrary I believe. Not it but some people listen again to reverse "Then, the volume of the movie?'s Decline" and said that.
I also added a new character, of course, just came across this wonderful cast at the moment. What do they exert a synergistic effect each other I just I also began to explore still. I is not always the size of the scale, just how important is the work you poured the love we have said that. Also on a grand scale, the film itself is the more personal you can also. Because things have been given so much already, I do not need to be an addition. The problem is how do I dig deep.”
It seems there's a television series in production at Marvel Studios?
”Yeah. I do not have to speak about this thing, Marvel now has a new meaning in the entertainment industry by "The Avengers" has been published and can I say one. It has been received to the people rather than mere brand, made with the idea of some kind. It would be very exciting.”
So, how involved are you in other Marvel movies that're being produced in the future?
“We got very deeply involved. My contract is not just simply for making "The Avengers 2" and consulting the whole view of the world. I'll also involved in the TV series so. I'm talking about the movie all the public now and Kevin Feige. I'm also working as lead in "The Avengers 2" and so that none of them is the great work.”
It is that the unity Motaseru(?)
“But I'm not supposed to because they should have their own identity to each franchise, in the same way as all. I'm what you should do while careful work does not fit a certain pattern, so meet the expectations. Dont no if there is something in the "Avengers" in the work of each course. Te going to build a world that is integrated but great fun, be unique all the pieces at the same time, not to something exciting when everyone is gathered.”
Is that all elements of movies and TV shows that are now in "Avengers 2?"
“The advent of these guys (and pointing to a poster of "The Avengers") is conflict. The conflict of characters who are fresh or not, but otherwise, it is their problem with a unique and realistic or not. I knew of their standing position of each character in the story, "The Avengers" series at the same time do not exist elsewhere and not with it. Because there is no need to be able to watch a movie in between who watched "The Avengers" is watched "The Avengers 2".
I think not only contrary to the intention of their own, to put my movie brought something from the other works simply, a smug thing. Even in any movie, it should be approached as I only get one chance only with us this character.”
Marvel Studios already describes their highly-anticipated sequel to the No. 3 highest grossing film of all time, “Marvel's The Avengers,” as another “big cinematic event.” And expected to feature the reassembly of iconic Marvel super heroes Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow & Nick Fury taking on a new unexpected enemy, new additions to the superhero team up of a lifetime are possible.
Expecting reprisals from Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, and directed by Joss Whedon from a screenplay by Joss Whedon, “Marvel’s The Avengers” sequel is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. And set for release May 1, 2015, the film is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. In addition to the sequel, Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on the Marvel characters including “Iron Man 3” on May 3, 2013; “Thor: The Dark World ” on November 8, 2013; “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” on April 4, 2014; and “Guardians of the Galaxy” on August 1, 2014.
