While he has decided to step away for the time being, it sounds like director Joss Whedon isn’t completely ruling out working with Marvel Studios again in the future. But after an experience on Avengers: Age Of Ultron that seemed to break the director a bit, I wouldn’t expect to hear anything about him potentially tackling any of their future event films. While speaking with The Wrap, Whedon commented on if he would be interested in working with the studio again and in particular perhaps helming a female-driven ‘Avengers franchise’ film for the studio.
Yeah, of course. Although I tend more towards the Jessica Jones-ey kind of stories than the delightful Supergirl stories that my daughter wants.
While he won’t be working on their upcoming Captain Marvel solo film, Whedon is very excited about seeing a female character finally getting the spotlight on the big screen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The director briefly commented on that one and gave full credit to Kevin Feige for getting that film going.
Kevin Feige fought a mighty fight to get her on the schedule. So it’s a start. You could say that should be a middle, but it’s a start.
Now, while some might assume that was a shot at Marvel Studios lack of female driven franchise currently, the start he was referring to was directed at Hollywood as a whole. Are there any female characters over at Marvel Studios that you’d like to see Whedon take a crack at? Or maybe a few you’d like to see join forces seeing as Marvel Studios seems to be keen on team-up films as of recent? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below.
