Fanboys and fangirls will be pleased to know that Joss Whedon has finished the first outline for the his highly anticipated sequel, "The Avengers 2". The superhero packed, star-studded sequel hits AMC Theatres on May 1st 2015. While we don't have much information about the outline yet, we take this confirmation as a solid step in the right direction, which will hopefully put the rumors circulating around the film to rest soon.
Whedon has joined Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige in overseeing Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In addition to the "The Avengers 2" and the "S.H.I.E.L.D." TV show, Phase Two includes such films as "Iron Man 3" which releases in AMC Theatres in May 2013, "Thor: The Dark World" in November 2013 and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" on April 4, 2014.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Whedon sheds some light on a personal connection he feels with the Hulk character, portrayed by Mark Ruffalo in the "The Avengers":
"What was most astonishing to me about making that movie was how personal it was," he says. "I literally had the I’m-always-angry revelation during production. I had this certain amount of back-burner simmer of rage that I was completely aware of, but apparently I wrote it for Bruce Banner, going (to myself): ‘I think this is what a guy like this might go through!’ Interesting! What guy, Joss? ‘I don’t know! Some guy. I can’t think of anyone in particular, or why this is coming to me…’ Really, Joss? Really?"
We'll keep you posted as more exciting details emerge.
"The Avengers 2" comes crashing to an AMC Theatres near you on May 1st 2015.
