The word is out! “The Avengers 2” script is almost complete. According to Joss Weldon, the script will be done in a couple of months.
“Don’t go bigger; go deeper,” Weldon told MTV News at the Critics’ Choice Awards talking about how he plans to follow up the first “Avengers” film. “All of these people have met, so you have that out of the way. Now you can spend your time just digging in, I mean with a scalpel, to cause pain.”
The plot of the next film, may see “The Avengers” team experiencing a lot of pain in their next reunion, but viewers won’t have to worry about the film disappointing. Avengers was the third highest grossing film in history. With Avengers being such a massive success, Wheldon is all in on Marvel. Wheldon is set to direct the ABC series “S.H.I.E.L.D” pilot, and is the creative consultant on other Marvel Studios films currently in development. “I read scripts and I give notes on everything,” Wheldon said of his work on Marvel’s Phase Two movies. “I’ll look at cuts when they’re ready to show me. I’ll talk to directors if they want to. I try to make myself useful without being intrusive. I’ve gotten to be a part of all of them. That’s a dream job for a kid like me.”
“Avengers 2” is set to be released in May of 2015
