According to director Joss Whedon, filming on Marvel’s next Avengers film, Avengers: Age of Ultron has wrapped. Whedon declared it so on Twitter himself.

Of course, the work on the Avengers sequel is hardly over with all of the effects work, voice dubbing, color correcting and all the other stuff that needs to be done during post-production on a massive superhero blockbuster expected to be the biggest film of its kind when it’s released on May 1, 2015. But after five or six months of filming being completed, Whedon surely feels like a large part of his work is done.
So what really is next for the director? He likely has something smaller in mind, along the lines of his 2012 adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. A sequel to his 2008 webseries, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, would be awesome. He’s said in interviews that he wants to get back into television, probably something that isn’t Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Maybe he now has the time to read the recent biography written about him, with an introduction from his Firefly pal, Nathan Fillion.
Or perhaps the man just wants to take a nap. Naps are nice.
