Joss Whedon Quits Marvel, And Here’s Why


Surely the Marvel Cinematic Universe became what it is today thanks to the massive response from the fans, but nobody can deny that is owes a gigantic deal of its success to the skills and directing mastery of Joss Whedon.

Despite paving the way from MCU from “The Avengers” all the way to mid-Phase 2, the director decided it’s about time he takes a hiatus from working with Marvel Studios.

As CinemaBlend reports, here’s what Whedon had to say during a recent Q&A session: “I’ve gone off the reservation for a while. It was five years that I was working on either Avengers or S.H.I.E.L.D That was an enormous gift they gave me.”

He continued: “They handed me several hundreds of millions of dollars and said ‘do what you do,’ which is very rare and I was very lucky. At the same time, it’s important for me not just to have my own thing and do something smaller, but also to create a new challenge for myself because I will start to repeat myself.”

In short, Joss Whedon seemingly got worn out by working on all these Marvel movies. Although they were immensely successful, becoming tired after half a decade of working on the same set of projects is understandable. Here’s hoping that whoever comes to replace Whedon won’t fail at giving us more extraordinary superhero flicks.
