Joss Whedon has been on something of a hiatus from the movie world since Avengers: Age of Ultron, retreating from Twitter and working on his own projects, including the memorable anti-Trump superhero campaign.
Whedon popped up to tell Complex that not only is he working on a WW2-set "historical fiction slash horror movie," but he's on board for more big franchise action:
"I mean, it’s a fun thing to do, to put yourself in the service of something if you think you can add an interpretation. It’s no different than any other storytelling. There are some times when you get micro-managed to death, but with Marvel, they let me make two movies that were very much mine.
So do I want to make James Bond movie? Yeah. Anne Hathaway does Catwoman again? Sure, I’m in. Do I want to make a Star Wars movie? Yeah. I was like, 'I don't want to make a Star Wars movie. Like, god dammit, why?' But I saw the trailer for 'Rogue' awhile ago and I was like, "'I want to do that.' To make a Star Wars movie and not be wed to the bigger picture."
A Joss Whedon-led Star Wars movie? How great would that be?
