Joss Whedon Talks Balancing Work on Avengers 2 and Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D.

Joss Whedon is a really busy guy. He’s working on shepherding a new television series, Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D., through the pilot stage and he’s currently in the preliminary stages on Marvel’s The Avengers 2. But how can he work on both at the same time? Whedon spoke with EW about his workload and how he’ll manage to work on both.

”I have to maintain a fine balance between not hurting The Avengers, which is my number one priority right now, and not be the guy who shows up once a month and undoes everything that’s been done by everyone else.”

Whedon says he will work on the television series “as my schedule allows,” and will help the other writers and producers brainstorm stories in addition to reviewing and approving edits for the show’s episodes.

Joss also spoke about working on the sequel to his Emmy award-winning series, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog“We really want to shoot it next year. We feel strong about the idea and we have a bunch of stuff written.”

Whedon is currently directing the pilot for Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. from a script that he co-wrote with his brother Jed and Maurissa Tancharoen. Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. will be executive produced by the Whedons, Tancharoen, Jeffrey Bell and Jeph Loeb.

Marvel’s The Avengers 2 is slated for a release on May 1, 2015.
