The Avengers 2 Begins Filming In February; Whedon Knew Plans Before First One


We get an update on The Avengers 2 from Joss Whedon who says that they look to begin filming next February.

We also learn a rather interesting fact, and that is that Whedon knew about the details for The Avengers 2 before he was sure what he was going to do with the first one.

Joss Whedon spoke with Entertainment Tonight giving The Avengers 2 updates and also mentioning Marvel Studios Phase 2 plans.

Check the video out below.

We should start shooting I think in February. I didn’t think I was gonna do the second one, but I had an idea for it before I had figured out the first one. You go into a movie not assuming that there’s going to be [another one].  I’ve seen plenty of movies that were the first part of the trilogy that never happened and it’s terrible. You don’t save anything for the trip back. Having said that, though, I did sort of know, ‘Well if they were to come back, I know what’s going to happen… it’s going to be awful.’

I’m really excited [for Phase Two] because I’ve gotten to look at everything and see behind the curtain on all the stuff, and Kevin Feige has a really clear vision and runs through all these movies.  They’re all very different, but they really are what the next story should be.

The Avengers 2 assembles May 1, 2015 with Iron Man 3 on May 3, 2013, Thor: The Dark World on November 8, 2013, Captain America: Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014, the Guardians of the Galaxy movie on August 1, 2014 and Ant-Man on November 6, 2015..
