Avengers 2 To Shoot In February 2014
From Joss Whedon, interview hero

As anyone who has seen him being interviewed before will tell you, Joss Whedon is excellent at being interviewed. And it's in one of his excellent interviews - this time with Entertainment Tonight - that he revealed a few titbits about Avengers 2, namely when it's going to shoot and when he came up with the idea.

Watch the red carpet interview for yourself below, and afterwards read a couple of key quotes from it at your leisure/out loud with your best Whedon impression. Warning: the following clip includes mentions of both Buffy and Dr. Horrible.

Your key quotes: "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 [a sequel]. I did sort of know, well… if they were to come back, I know what’s going to happen and it’s going to be awful!"

The last part of that was delivered in a comically whiny voice, so for those of you who haven't watched the clip, don't worry: it's not actually going to be awful. At least, no-one's planning it that way. The question is... which beloved character is he going to kill this time around? And will Ant-Man will be involved? And Thanos? And... and... and... more news on all of that as we get it.

As has already been revealed Avengers 2 will be shot in London, with the release set for May 2015. The first part of Marvel's Phase 2, Iron Man 3, is out on April 26 in the UK.
