Joss Whedon has said that the sequel to his blockbusting smash 'Avengers Assemble' will go 'deeper not bigger'.

The director, who made over $1 billion for Marvel following the first superhero supergroup flick, revealed his early plans for the next film to MTV News.

“Don't go bigger, go deeper,” he said.

“The grand thing is that all these people have met, so you've gotten that out of the way. And now you can really spend your time just digging in. And by digging in, I mean with a scalpel to cause pain.”

The film is slated for release in May 2015, with other Marvel properties 'Iron Man 3' and 'Thor: The Dark World' both set to be unveiled later this year.

Whedon also talked about the S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off TV series that is also in the pipeline.

“You have to bring a bit of spectacle to it,” he said. “It’s got to be bigger than your average cop show. But at the end of the day, it’s about the peripheral people. It’s about the people on the edges of the grand adventures. The whole point of the show is that even with all these big things, the little things matter.

“It’s about people who don’t have super powers. There will be some people with powers, there will be FX, and there will be the spectacle of science-fiction storytelling - but all played on a very human, small level. That’s the appeal of the thing.”
