It doesn't sound as if Joss Whedon will be back to direct The Avengers 3 or The Avengers 4, which are the Marvel Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2 movies.

Whedon, who directed The Avengers and has The Avengers: Age Of Ultron coming out in May, recently spoke with Empire Magazine where he let the news be known.

“I couldn’t imagine doing this again," Whedon said.  "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.”

With Whedon seemingly already out of the picture, it's actually been said Captain America 2 and 3 directors Anthony and Joe Russo will be directing The Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2 as leaked e-mails as a result of a Sony hack mentioned the directors involvement.

"The Avengers: Age Of Ultron" hits May 1, 2015 directed by Joss Whedon starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver, Paul Bettany as Vision, with James Spader as Ultron.


When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
