Avengers: Age of Ultron wraps; Joss Whedon asks us what he should do now

Aug. 6, 2014by: Graham McMorrow

JURASSIC WORLD isn’t the only movie this week to wrap up production; Joss Whedon’s AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON has now completed principal photography! Whedon tweeted out a set image earlier today of himself with the caption “What the hell do I do now?” We’re all pretty certain the man has months of post-production to do on the blockbuster; but it’s an interesting question nonetheless.

Whedon’s Marvel contract ends in 2015, so there's that to keep in mind when you're providing your answer to the question: What do you think Whedon should do next? (Besides AVENGERS 3)

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON stars Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Samuel L. Jackson, James Spader, Cobie Smulders, Paul Bettany, and Don Cheadle.

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON opens in theaters on May 1, 2015.

People have mentioned a Buffy movie, a Serenity sequel and Dr. Horrible 2 but I'd rather see something a bit different. I'd love to see him jump back into the horror genre. I love the hell out of The Cabin In the Woods. I'd like to see him tackle a different sub genre in the horror arena.

That's silly, we all know he probably knows the next fifty films he's gonna make. That being said....I'd love to see him make another Firefly movie! With a huuuge ass budget!

Let's face it, the answer is anything he wants to do.
Is it possible he's the only creative person in Hollywood without some dream project?

I feel like that picture of him is ripe for a new meme, like the sad Keanu one. Whedon probably has no shortage of possible things to do. I can only imagine the guy would like to go and do something besides Marvel. After two massive films and the development of the TV show, I can only imagine he'd like to go do something else.

I say he tries actually making his own original content and not piggy back off of easy already established characters that any person could have made and would have been successful (Buffy was already a hit movies before making a TV show and he took the most successful comic book characters that were already hugely popular on their own and then threw them into a movie where they did nothing for 1.5hrs and then had an hour action packed finale where tey all could some how communicate with each

You got a real bug up your but about Joss. lol He did write the screenplay for Buffy the movie (which I don't think was a success). Had 2 long running tv series (one of which was cancelled out of spite), a tv series that was cancelled to soon, and a show that wasn't very good.

I guarantee if Joss Whedon made a sequel and slapped his name on it now, it would do tremendously better. The studio should give the guy a pass to make whatever he wants now after the success of the Avengers movie. Money shouldn't be an issue for him.

The correct answer is "Whatever the hell you want and I'll go and see it"
We're lucky, the Marvel superheroes have been Whedon's passion project pretty much since the beginning. Everything he's done from Buffy, Angel, Dr Horrible, Firefly, Dollhouse etc, all have very large elements of Marvel comics strewn throughout their DNA (not to mention turning them into comics and writing Marvel comics of his own), and I think he's truly enjoying having the keys to the Marvel kingdom more than he lets

I'd love to see him take on Avengers 3 because I trust him to the ends of the earth with that franchise over anyone else, and it would be nice to see him finish his own trilogy, but other than that I would watch anything the man does.

Direct a starwars character flic, have nathon fillion cameo as the firefly captain in a cosmic bar scene! Make a buffy/firefly cross over oav! Direct the monster squad remake that's now in turn around from platinum dunes! Make a giant monster movie! Direct a kevin smith biopic! Do a documentary on the rise and fall of Jason Liebig(once called one of the four most powerful people in comics, he was marvels x-men line editor in the 90"s now just a newyork bartender, trash hoarder with over ten

But first, release a trailer for Avengers 2 already. Maybe the studio will put one attached to Sin City 2?

Great but I'm still PISSED!

Can someone explain to me how in this day and age where everyone has a smart phone, that the friggan trailer didn't somehow get leaked? Even a fuzzy video from a bad angle would have made me happy! WTH!

I would put just the word BUFFY in size 80 font but I can't do that in this box.

So, BUFFY. With caps, as you can see.

To answer the question: something original. I hate seeing high-profile, talented directors shackled to one specific property (like Christopher Nolan was with Batman and Man of Steel, to an extent). Whedon's played in the Marvel sandbox for long enough (to amazing results, don't get me wrong), and even though I'd LOVE to see him come back and finish his Avengers trilogy...I think it's time he moved on, let others take over the MCU, and work on some projects that he probably is dying to do.

Nolan is a terrible example. He put out two of his best films, The Prestige and Inception, between Batman movies. He certainly didn't let that franchise shackle him, and Whedon is giving no indication he is, either.

I really wouldn't trust anyone else to direct the Avenger films except him. But I have to agree with Mr. ScreenAddict. Nolan isn't a great example to use.

Yes, and then he was obligated to return and direct a 3rd Bat movie that he clearly didn't have his heart set in it. Wouldn't you hate to see the same thing happen to Whedon (who hasn't exactly had the luxury of putting out his own movies in between Avengers flicks)?? I'd say the comparison is pretty accurate.

Yeah Nolan is a bad example but Warner Bros at least LET Nolan make a film in between, I don't see Marvel being as willing to say, "Go make another movie and come back when you're done." Marvel has their schedule in mind above all else....hopefully they're not dumb enough to let Whedon slip away on 3...
