Hollywood director Joss Whedon was highly praised for the work that he did with The Avengers movie and has agreed to return for The Avengers 2. However, Joss will also be working as a producer on the Marvel show S.H.I.E.L.D. and has admitted that he needs to find the perfect balance between the two projects.
Whedon was talking to EW when he explained, “One of the great things about having worked for so damn long is that there are so many people that I truly trust. 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.”
However, Joss is all too aware that things can go off track unintentionally, “Back when I was doing Buffy, I made a joke once. I said, ‘We’re going to do leprechaun's! It’s going to be the best episode ever!’ And Marti Noxon, who just started as a staff writer, came back three days later and said, ‘I spent three days doing research on leprechaun's.’ And I was like: What the f— are you talking about?’” he added.
S.H.I.E.L.D. will star Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker and Brett Dalton, while The Avengers 2 will see the return of Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner. The Avengers 2 is currently expected to be released on May 1, 2015.
