During a recent interview with Digital Spy (embedded below), Marvel's the Avengers filmmaker Joss Whedon told the site that the next film will be about character. "I am not as far as I'd like to be, but I have the whole thing outlined," Whedon said of the sequel. "I'm really excited about it and it's just a question of getting the time to write it all down." He added, "There's going to be a certain amount of spectacle, because--guess what? They come to see it and it's why I want to see movies, too, but I do have a greater opportunity to sort of dig into the relationships in the second one and that's what's really exciting about it." Even though he didn't go into specifics about the story, some fans have already started to comment that it sounds like he may not be jumping right into The Infinity Gauntlet after all, since that's a huge amount of spectacle and not a ton of time for character development given the number of players in a single film.
