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..

Where Was Loki?! 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Does Not Feature Tom Hiddleston's Villain!

If you’re going to see The Avengers: Age of Ultron this weekend, don’t get your hopes up about seeing an appearance from Tom Hiddleston‘s character Loki!

The film’s director Joss Whedon is explaining why Loki has been cut from the film, even though Tom did film a scene for it.

“We did shoot something, but it didn’t play,” he told MTV News. “The movie has so much. It’s so filled. We didn’t want it to feel overstuffed. I really wanted to have Loki in it, but I understood the decision that there were now too many voices in the chorus.”

“At some point the embarrassment of riches is actually embarrassing,” Joss laughingly added.

The Avengers Assemble for 'Age of Ultron' Covers for 'Empire'!

The cast of The Avengers: Age of Ultron is front and center on the cover of Empire magazine‘s March 2015 issue, on sale January 29.

Featured on the cover from left to right are Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, and Jeremy Renner with Mark Ruffalo towering behind as The Hulk.

Director Joss Whedon opened up to the mag about what part of the movie he is currently working on.

“I’ve been working on a lot of Ultron scenes,” Joss said, “so I’m very anti-Avengers right now. You can’t write someone if you don’t love them and I’ve come to the conclusion that Ultron is right. The Avengers need to die.”

The pilot for the show was screened for the first time ever during the panel.

“I have that feeling that I have not had for a long time where I have assembled this extraordinary ensemble of ridiculously talented and soon-to-be-very-full-of-themselves people,” Joss said after the screening. “The endless possibilities that we have between them, among them, in their pasts, in their futures … the things we’ve taken from the Marvel universe, that we’re bringing to the Marvel universe, this is a show that has so much history and so much to make. I guess I’m a little excited.”

FYI: Chloe is wearing a Camilla and Marc dress, an Inge Christopher clutch, and L.A.M.B. heels.
