Joss Whedon Won't Make 'Avengers 2' Without Downey Jr. And That's A Fact.

Joss Whedon Robert Downey Jr Avengers

Iron Man himself Robert Downey Jr is yet to sign on to appear in Avengers 2, it has emerged. Contractual negotiations between Marvel and the actor have been complicated by the fact that the third movie in the Iron Man franchise became the fifth highest grossing movie in history, just $100 million short of The Avengers.

Pretty much everyone - including Marvel - assumed Downey would be turning in for work on Avengers 2 given the huge success of the first film, though nothing has been signed. In conversation with the Daily Beast, director Joss Whedon made it clear he would not begin production on the sequel without his leading man, saying, "He is Iron Man. He is Iron Man in the way that Sean Connery was James Bond. I have no intention of making Avengers 2 without him, nor do I think I'll be called upon to do that," he said, unequivocally adding, "I don't think it's in my interest, Marvel's interest, or his interest, and I think everything will be fine. But I know that this is Hollywood and you roll with things. You have to be ready for the unexpected. But I loved working with Robert, and everybody knows he embodied that role in a way no one else can."

Of course both Whedon and Downey Jr would make an ABSOLUTE FORTUNE from Avengers 2, though the actor's standing as (probably) the most bankable star in the world right now is muddying a deal. Nevertheless, Whedon remained upbeat, saying, "I think everything will be fine."

Ben Affleck Has Not Been Approached To Direct Justice League After All

Ben Affleck Avengers

Ben Affleck has denied the rumor that he was approached to direct one of the most highly anticipated superhero flicks of the next few years – Justice League, which is DC’s answer to Marvel’s hugely successful Avengers franchise, set to be released in 2015.

The rights to the flick belong to Warner Bros, but Affleck has explicitly denied having been asked to helm the project and has said that it is still in its earliest stages. The Argo director doesn’t mind having to snub the rumours, he said for HitFix. 'I don't mind setting the record straight. It's one of those things where the closest I came was some people talked to me about it like at a meeting. They were like, 'Here's the stuff we're doing', you know? 'Here's what we're looking at, Affleck explained. ‘That kind of thing. And they suggested it. But I don't think there's a script. I don't think there's anything.' Well, that was certainly vague. Perhaps Affleck is already practicing saying nothing in statements for his potential political career?

Nevertheless, the actor-turned-director has expressed his interest in Justice League and will be watching how this one pans out. It will certainly be a highly anticipated flick, with the Avengers having set the bar pretty high and the second flick of the series coming out in 2014.
