Joss Whedon No Longer A Part Of The Marvel Movieverse

"You know, I was their sort of consigliere for a while... We do not discuss our thing..." said the ​Buffy the Vampire Slayer​ creator.

Joss Whedon has confirmed what has been pretty obvious for month and that is that he will no longer be continuing his association with the Marvel movieverse.

While speaking at the Oxford Union – he revealed why he won’t be directing or even consulting on any future projects in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“You know, I was their sort of consigliere for a while… We do not discuss our thing…” said the ​Buffy the Vampire Slayer​ creator.

“But, 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 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 I was like, ‘I can’t…’ If I was still there going, ‘Well, here are my thoughts on this film’, I’d be there every day. I wouldn’t do anything else because there are a lot of films, and it is a lot of fun. It’s very seductive.

 “When you can put your little fairy dust on things and just improve them slightly, and they actually listen to you… I was a script doctor for a long time, and the part where they listen to you was very rare. So it was very important for my own self to go, ‘We can still be friends’, but…”
At present there is no news about any of Whedon’s new projects other than

his ‘Victorian female Batman’ comic ​Twist​,  but there have been plenty of rumor about a forthcoming sequel to Dr. Horrible. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
