Director Joss Whedon Reaffirms We Won't Be Returning For 'Avengers: Infinity War'

While speaking to Empire Magazine (via Comic Book Movie) about his upcoming Avengers sequel Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon reveals he won't return for the two-part sequel Infinity War. This doesn't come as much of surprise because due to the infamous Sony hack from late last year it was revealed that Captain America: Civil War directing due The Russo Brothers is taking over directing duty's on Infinity War Parts I & II:
"I couldn't imagine doing this again. It's enormously hard, and it be, by then, a good five years since I created anything that was completely my own. So it's very doubtful that I would take on the two-part Infinity War movie that would eat up the next four years of my life. I obviously still want to be a part of the Marvel Universe - I love these guys - but it ain't easy. This year has been more like running three shows than any year of my life. It is bonkers."
It's completely understandable when a director or actor want's to do something original instead of a massive studio film. Let's just hope Marvel Studios can convince Joss Whedon to stay on as writer for the the two-part superhero extravaganza.  

The Avengers: Infinity War Part I hits May 2018
