Russos to direct Avengers films


The Russo brothers replace Whedon as directors for the Avengers franchise. The first movies in the series they will direct are Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 / Part 2, which will be shot all at once. Whedon had hinted that Avengers: Age of Ultron would be his final one:

I couldn’t imagine doing this again. It’s enormously hard, and it [will] be, by [the time I would make ‘Avengers 3 & 4′], a good five years since I created anything that was completely my own. So it’s very doubtful that I would take on the two-part Infinity War movie that would eat up the next four years of my life. I obviously still want to be a part of the Marvel Universe – I love these guys – but it ain’t easy. This year has been more like running three shows than any year of my life. It is bonkers.

Tavis Smiley interview


Whedon discusses his new film, Much Ado About Nothing, and his upcoming ABC series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., in this interview for PBS.

But I love the poetry of the thing, but then ultimately, the more I studied it, the more I go, “Oh, this is about me.” Which is the case of all great literature. But it really just, it strikes themes that obviously it’s 400 years since he wrote it and they still completely resonate, and the jokes still work.
