Will Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon helm a Star Wars film next? Well, that just might happen as Whedon recently revealed that he would "consider it."
Superhero fans worldwide are quite keen to know what the ace director of the Avengers and Agents of Shield will be making next, after he announced that he will not be returning to direct Avengers 3.
During a recent interview, Whedon teased that he would love to make a Batman film and also did not rule out working on a Star Wars movie.
When asked which superhero he would want to make a movie on next, Whedon replied: "Nobody doesn't want Batman. Everyone wants to play with Batman. C'mon, that's just a given. He'd be the first."
On the subject of how Warner Bros. and DC are setting up their films, Whedon said, "I'm a fan. I get very confused when people are like, 'Oh you guys are in competition,' and I'm like, 'Competition for what?' Their movies are so different. The Marvel aesthetic and the DC aesthetic couldn't be more opposite and I love that. I love going to their movies. I wanna see how they build their team. I wanna see Affleck play Batman. I'm excited about the whole thing."
And finally, when asked if he would consider working on a Star Wars movie next, the director stated:
"Of course I'd consider it, but I have just spend five years inside a giant franchise factory with enormous freedom and restrictions with characters I haven't created. I think I do need to find out what's in [my head] first."
"Given Disney's ties to Marvel and Lucasfilm, as well as Whedon's knack for assembling multiple characters and telling a solid story, one wonders if he would be approached for a Star Wars film down the road," reports JoBlo. "At the very least, he didn't flat out say that he had no interest. The Star Wars Anthology films have certainly opened the floodgates and now there's a much larger universe for opportunity."
