Rumor: Is Joss Whedon attached to Avengers 3?

It only takes one slip up for rumors to spread like wildfire. In this case, it’s Iron Man 3 scribe Drew Pearce that let one minor thing slip, but to be honest, it’s a rumor that all comic book fans want to be true. In speaking to Movies.com about All Hail the King, Drew Pearce was asked if his short would have some sort of aftermath in the Marvel cinematic universe. His response? “Honestly, it’s a question above my pay grade. One of the things when you’re a writer or director in the Marvel universe is you come in, you leave some tasty morsels dangling at the end, and maybe you’re the one who comes in and picks them up again next time, or maybe it’s someone else, or maybe they just hang there awhile and that’s fine too. Despite any cliffhanger-ness to the short, I also don’t feel like it’s unsatisfying. That’s all you can really hope to do. Unless you’re Joss [Whedon] and you’re making Avengers 2 and 3, and then you have a pretty good idea if you’re making the next one or not.”

Joss Whedon completing what is essentially HIS trilogy is something that most fans would like to see. He was the one responsible for introducing Thanos into the cinematic universe and it should be him that should do the Infinity Gauntlet saga.

Then again, Pearce’s comment could be an off-hand comment with zero meaning behind it, but it could also have some truth behind it. Just a few weeks ago, Latino Review’s El Mayimbe first revealed the scoop by writing this tweet.

El Mayimbe has a knack for revealing Marvel scoops and this one might be no exception. Pearce’s comment along with El Mayimbe’s tweet makes me believe that Marvel’s cinematic future is really planned out until 2021. Meaning the two sides look to be mutually interested in working together again on Avengers 3. Time will tell and this is just a rumor as of right now since Avengers: Age of Ultron has JUST started filming in Johannesburg. But, as always, it’s always fun to speculate.

Avengers: Age of Ultron exterminates theaters on May 1, 2015.
