    "The hardest part was being away from my family," Whedon says.

    Aww.

    "The rest," he said, "was very easy. I had a great team with me."

    Guess that means Whedon's already working on the sequel, right?

    "I'm not," he said. "I mean, as always the brain has places where I think [a second film] might go, but I'm just trying to live through the first one."

    We're thinking Whedon could push for a certain X Men mutant in an Avengers followup.

    When asked who is favorite superhero was growing up, Whedon said. "I had several, but I always had to give it up for Kitty Pryde."

    Yes, we know Avengers is a Disney property and X Men is Fox but if anyone could get the two studios to allow a superhero mash-up, it's definitely Whedon.

    Now we want to hear from you. Do you wanna see X Men characters in the next Avengers flick? Sound off below.
