SAN DIEGO – Marvel have announced that the next Avengers movie will be a novel, Joss Whedon revealed at Comic Con today.
Joss Whedon spoke to a packed hall about his current projects and his changing relationship with Marvel:
This is a totally different approach to the cinema experience. We came to a conclusion that no one was really happy with what happened to Avengers: Age of Ultron, so we decided that the next time we were going to do it different and that’s where the idea of the novel came in.
As well as writing the novel, Whedon will be designing the cover:
After all, cinema is a visual medium so it’s important to have an attractive cover and twelve color illustrations. The audience will be given a copy of the novel as they enter the cinema. Then they’ll sit there and read it until they’re done. The 3D version will involve pop up illustrations and the IMAX experience will be available for the visually impaired. This is pushing technology in a way we haven’t seen since… I honestly don’t know.
