Joss Whedon Talks Balancing Work on Avengers 2 and Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D.

08 Jan

Okay so now we’ve gotten another bit of news concerning Joss Whedon on Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Avengers 2, and while it’s just a tiny bit of news, any news is better than none at all. The following story comes from superherohype:

“Joss Whedon is a really busy guy. He’s working on shepherding a new television series, Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D., through the pilot stage and he’s currently in the preliminary stages on Marvel’s The Avengers 2. But how can he work on both at the same time? Whedon spoke with EW about his workload and how he’ll manage to work on both.

”I have to maintain a fine balance between not hurting The Avengers, which is my number one priority right now, and not be the guy who shows up once a month and undoes everything that’s been done by everyone else.”

Whedon says he will work on the television series “as my schedule allows,” and will help the other writers and producers brainstorm stories in addition to reviewing and approving edits for the show’s episodes.

Joss also spoke about working on the sequel to his Emmy award-winning series, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog“We really want to shoot it next year. We feel strong about the idea and we have a bunch of stuff written.”

Whedon is currently directing the pilot for Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. from a script that he co-wrote with his brother Jed and Maurissa Tancharoen. Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. will be executive produced by the Whedons, Tancharoen, Jeffrey Bell and Jeph Loeb.

Marvel’s The Avengers 2 is slated for a release on May 1, 2015.”

So it seems to me that Joss Whedon is constantly busy, he has not only his projects going on at Marvel but he also has his next film In Your Eyes and the follow-up to his musical tragicomedy miniseries, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. The man never stops moving and that is something that I can appreciate and hope to do myself one day. But anyway it is great to know that while he is working on Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D., The Avengers 2 is still his main concern and that makes me so happy. The Avengers 2 is a big deal and the hype is building up to 2015 yo.
