Joss Whedon Talks Avengers 2
How will he 'twist that knife'?

The quote below from 24 Hours Vancouver is not, by any stretch of the imagination, the Joss-Whedon-on-Avengers-2 quote to end all Joss-Whedon-on-Avengers-2 quotes but it is a pretty intriguing one.

Speaking to the Canadian news outlet about his latest project, Much Ado About Nothing, the interviewer asked Whedon where he saw Avengers 2 going, now that he's been confirmed as the writer/director of that sequel of sequels.

His response went almost exactly like this: "The creation of the team is not the happy ending," he said. "It is the beginning of something that is complex and difficult, and now I get to dig a little deeper. And maybe, while I'm digging, just twist that knife. And that's exciting for me."

With Thor: The Dark World back up in Asgard fighting off dark elves led by Christopher Eccleston's Malekith The Accursed, Iron Man 3  seeing Tony Stark "cut off from the world and needs just focus on his intellects to get himself out of his situation" (according to Kevin Feige) and Captain America: The Winter Soldier presumably dealing with some trouble from Cap's past not to mention where The Hulk, Black Widow and the brain-addled Hawkeye will have been all this time it's going to be a hell of a job to get the gang back together again in 2015.

Complex, as Whedon points out, is definitely the word. How his words "twist the knife" will turn out on screen remains to be seen, but it's very encouraging to learn that the bickering bantering between the superhero team isn't going anywhere.

Then there's the conundrum of how to get Loki back in the picture. Much loved and frequently quoted by any self-respecting Avengers fan, it would be a damn shame to not get the horned antihero back but considering where he was left at the end of The Avengers (shackled and zoomed back to Asgard), fans will have to wait until Thor: The Dark World to see if the two brothers will work out their differences.

So this is a call to commenting arms, ladies and gentlemen. How would you like Whedon to twist the knife in Avengers 2? Refresh your memory by reading our How To Ensure Avengers 2 Is Awesome feature then let us know what you think in the poll and comment box below.

Bring back Agent Coulson just to kill him again
Make Loki a fully-fledged member of The Avengers
Have one of The Avengers leave the team
Think of an even ruder, even more archaic word for Loki to bellow
Make Bruce Banner's "always angry" gambit prove unfeasible
Reveal Nathan Fillion as Galactus
Introduce Nathan Fillion as Agent Coulson's brother... then kill him

And don't forget, Avengers 2 is set for a May 1 2015 release date, which is approximately... too far away. Sorry about that.

Well if previous form is anything to go by, he's probably going to kill off someone important, very suddenly, probably after they just made you happy/laugh. More
