The Avengers was the first Whedon product that I enjoyed, but after my third viewing of the film I couldn't conjure the strength to see it again. The story was just so flat. It'll be interesting to see how he handles a more small-scale film for Avengers 2.
I know that's what he wants, but I don't know if he'll have that option. Marvel has shown a propensity to discontinue work with any and everybody. I feel like they won't think anything but bigger will be better for Avengers 2. If that's the case, Joss is either gonna have to play ball, or possibly get replaced. At one time, Jon Favreau was the golden boy too. And while he could've came back for IM3, reading between the lines, I think he grew tired quickly with Marvel's input.
