    Joss Whedon - best known for directing the first two Avengers movies and producing the cult television hits Buffy The Vampire SlayerAngel, and Firefly - was a top pick by many fans to handle one of the Sequel Trilogy movies, but he expressed disinterest at the time due to wanting to take a break from large-scale projects after 2015. Now, he's expressed some interest in taking charge of a Star Wars movie after all - but only if it's a spin-off and not a part of a trilogy.





    From Collider:
    It seemed unlikely that Joss Whedon would have jumped at the call to direct another big franchise movie so soon after Age Of Ultron took a significant toll on him from a creative standpoint, which is why it's not surprising that he turned down a shot to direct a Sequel Trilogy movie. The relatively small-scale and self-contained nature of an Anthology movie would likely be more appealing to the kind of directorial approach Whedon is used to. It's still interesting to see this kind of creative about-face take place in only two years' time, though - and it certainly presents an interesting opportunity for Lucasfilm, should they make a specific story that would appeal to his strengths as a director.

    I'm glad the interest is there.
