Joss Whedon Wants Batman; Talks The Avengers 2 Quicksilver & Scarlet Witch



A recent screening of Much Ado About Nothing was held at the Film Society of Lincoln Center where Joss Whedon discussed the movie as as well as The Avengers 2, Firefly and also Batman.

Regarding Batman, Whedon said he would if he could get his hands on “absolutely anybody” that it would be Batman, and then went on to state “he’s a Marvel character in the DC Universe.”

Whedon also talks about Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, who are confirmed by the director to appear in The Avengers 2.

Recently, it came out that Bryan Singer will be using the mutie speedster in his Fox Studios movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Whedon doesn’t directly answer questions about that, but offers “they’re going to be awesome” in The Avengers 2.

For fans that have been waiting for anything Firefly, Whedon says pretty much what we have been hearing from the director lately in that nothing is really planned, but one day he would like to visit the fan-favorite show again.

“If all the planets align that would be great, but I’m not going to do what I did the first time and move heaven and earth to make it happen,” Whedon offered.

Joss Whedon previously pitched a Batman movie, which WB turned down the same day they canceled Firefly, that seems to have led to a bit of bad blood between the two.

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..
