Joss not yet signed for Avengers 3?

Joss Whedon has yet to officially sign up for Avengers 3, it has been revealed.

The filmmaker wrote and directed 2012's Avengers Assemble and is hard at work on the follow up, Age Of Ultron. But he has not yet confirmed his involvement in a third film, according to Marvel Studios president of production Kevin Feige.

When asked about Joss's involvement beyond the upcoming film, he told Screenrant: "It's still being determined."

As well as directing the next ensemble event, Joss is helping to oversee all of the 'Phase Two' movies leading up to it.

Feige, speaking at a press junket for Thor: The Dark World, went on: "All of his efforts right now are in what he's doing for us primarily, obviously, writing and prepping Age Of Ultron. But also in reading the drafts of the films in Phase Two, watching early cuts to inform him where the characters are going to end up in the beginning of Age Of Ultron, and also to get his input and his wisdom into all of these.

"But right now it's all about leading up to Age Of Ultron."

The Avengers: Age Of Ultron is due to be released in 2015 and will see Robert Downey, Jr, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L Jackson among the stars reprising their roles from the first film. Elizabeth Olsen and James Spader are also joining the cast as the Scarlet Witch and Ultron.
