Joss Whedon Is Cutting Ties with Marvel Universe - Find Out Why

Joss Whedon has revealed he has cut ties with the Marvel world in a new video interview.

“I sort of had my finger in all of the films in the second phase but then I just had to concentrate only on Ultron and sort of know that when it was done, I was just going to stop. So I made a completely clean break — not because we had a falling out, just because if I was still there going, ‘Well, here are my thoughts on this film,’ I’d be there every day,” the 51-year-old writer/director said during a talk with the Oxford Union.

“It’s important to 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,” Joss continued. “I think Steven Soderbergh during one of his ‘I’m retiring’ moments said, ‘I’m finding the same solutions for problems. I found myself in the same way. I need to increase my vocabulary because I’m now at a place where enough people know what I do and I’ve done it enough where I could just sort of vaguely do that, and that is how you become old and obsolete. As an artist … I need to make it harder for myself, so I’m working on a few personal projects that I can’t describe. But I can tell you that they’re really hard, and I’m totally failing, and it feels great.”

Joss has been heavily involved in the Marvel world. He wrote and directed Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron. He also created Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..
