I think Joss Whedon is a demi-god now.

 He has earned any ego he wants to have now, but the guy is still too humble to become a diva.

Marvel needs to sign this cat right effing now for the sequel and forget all that low balling bullshit they pulled with Favreau, come correct

I know the sequel is at best 3 years away due to all the solo films so plenty of time to get your eggs in a row. But it's never too early to start planning.

I know Feige said something to the effect the sequel will be totally different chemistry, the heroes will have more experience and won't be strangers to each other. It should be a whole new bunch of fun nevermind if they decide to bring in new characters or maybe even replace some

 Man, this movie was truly comics come to life, like they jumped right off the page. What a remarkable job he did. Hats off. The only problem, I don't know if anyone else feels this way, but now I'm really only looking forward to the Avengers sequel and not so much to the other solo sequels.

I'm really pissed off at Mr Whedon rite now!!!!!!!

I went looking for a movie last nite, and while looking through my movie collection, I could'nt pick one........

Not even Empire Strikes Back could grab my intrest.

What's a Fanboy to do????

haha seriously guys! i mentioned this before, but only thing i hated about Avengers was the fact that it made me realize I would die, and I would never be able to watch these movies again. ANd I'm serious, it really made me sad....

I would take a guess that the next super villian for the next Avengers movie will be behind in some way the issues these solo movies take on.  That could be interesting.

violator...that is a sad thought dude.  You better get your fill for the next 40 years then.

@violator - lmao, I agree, sir!

I better start jogging and eating rite, cause I want to make sure I see Avengers 2.

Totally agree with you on this one. Unlike Favreau, Whedon is a Marvel guy. He's written comics for them and knows the Universe inside out. Sure Favreau said he was a fan of Iron Man but I don't think it's as deep as Whedon is of comics and Marvel stuff.

No low-balling. Give the man his due. Why? Because WB/DC will poach him the moment he's not happy with Marvel. Remember how WB got Singer when he was the top Marvel movie guy? How about Ryan Reynolds for GL away from any potential Deadpool franchise?

Marvel and Kevin Feige have to be careful to not piss off the right people. Their relationships with Favreau, Terence Howard and Edward Norton did not end on good terms and a lot of it had to do with money. Since Marvel Studios was borrowing the money to self-finance their movies, the kind of had to be frugal but anything after Iron Man 3,  I believe is 100% Disney. And Disney has no excuse to go cheap on a billion dollar franchise.

Being a DC guy I would Love to see Joss take a stab at JLA....

BUT I hope Marvel doesnt screw it up with Joss. Joss did such an AMAZING job. Im excited to see what he comes up with for the sequels.

I made the mistake of watching the Spiderman movies again after Avengers. Wow after watching Spiderman 3 again I NEED to go see Avengers to make up for that crap
