The Avengers is just over a month away from hitting the big screen and director Joss Whedon has revealed how he feels that The Avengers 2 could top the forthcoming movie. Joss claims that the best way that The Avengers sequel could top The Avengers, is by not trying to.
Whedon explained, "By not trying to. By being smaller. More personal, more painful. By being the next thing that should happen to these characters, and not just a rehash of what seemed to work the first time. By having a theme that is completely fresh and organic to itself."
Joss then suggested that The Godfather II could be a good template to follow. He added, "By having flashbacks to young Michael Andolini escaping Sicily to come to New York, where he will be called Corleone. Sequels are always better when that happens."
The Avengers is set to star Jeremy Renner, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hiddleston and Samuel L Jackson and is set to be released in the UK on April 27 and the US on May 4.
