He sure is busy with The Avengers sequel and other Marvel Cinematic Universe properties, but Capt. Mal Reynolds, Zoe and the rest of the Firefly crew will always have a special place in Joss Whedon‘s heart. The director says he’d love to return to that world after he’s finished with The Avengers 2.
Speaking to the Toronto Sun, the director stated that he’ll never let hopes of a Firefly resurrection die.
“I’ll never really accept it,” Whedon said. “And I always, in the back of my head, think, ‘What if I could get the old gang back together?’”
In regards to getting the Firefly cast back together, Whedon said:
“Well, you know, it’s something I would love to do. When I made Serenity, I said here’s one thing I’ll never do again – a movie based on something that some people know about and some people don’t, with tons of characters who all know each other and who you have to introduce. And then my second movie was The Avengers.”
There are more than a few of us that would like to see the universe of Firefly return to the screen, whether small or big screen. It’s good to know Joss would love to go back there as well.
We can always dream!
