Joss Whedon Reveals What It Would Take For Him To Direct Another Marvel Movie

Joss Whedon notably walked away from the Marvel Cinematic Universe last year after having directed the first two Avengers films, citing fatigue and a desire to direct smaller projects as the key reasons for his departure. Still, it sounds like Whedon could be persuaded to return to the MCU someday … as long as he gets to direct a very specific style of film.

Speaking with The Wrap recently, Whedon admitted that he would be willing to another movie for Marvel is the studio let him helm a gritty, female-fronted story:

“Yeah, of course [I’d be into that]. Although I tend more towards the Jessica Jones-ey kind of stories than the delightful Supergirl stories that my daughter wants.”

Whedon made his name making cult-favorite, female-driven TV fare such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly, so it’s hardly surprising that he would want to stick to a similar template on the big screen. Hey, if Marvel’s looking for a director for a Black Widow movie, it looks like they’ve already got a potential candidate!
