Joss Whedon stepped back from directing big franchises after Avengers: Age of Ultron, but now seven months later he's had some second-thoughts about it - under the right cirumstances.
"I mean, it’s a fun thing to do, to put yourself in the service of something if you think you can add an interpretation. It’s no different than any other storytelling. There are some times when you get micro-managed to death but with Marvel, they let me make two movies that were very much mine," Whedon told Complex. "So do I want to make James Bond movie? Yeah. Anne Hathaway does Catwoman again? Sure, I’m in. Do I want to make a Star Wars movie? Yeah. I was like, 'I don't want to make a Star Wars movie. Like, god dammit, why?' But I saw the trailer for [Rogue One] awhile ago and I was like, "I want to do that." To make a Star Wars movie and not be wed to the bigger picture."
Whedon is currently writing an as-yet untitled "historical fiction slash horror movie about a time when the world was going insane, World War II."
