MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE

At this year's Saturn Awards, Yahoo! Movies spoke with both Joss Whedon and Clark Gregg about the properties they'd like to take on in the future.

"I think it's time for the 'Howard the Duck' reboot that nobody expects," Whedon told Yahoo! Movies.

Meanwhile Clark Gregg has a secret desire to actually be Captain Marvel.

"I like that I'm not a superhero. It'd be a little implausible, and I don't want to eat chicken breasts and spend as much time at the gym as poor [Chris] Hemsworth does," Gregg said. "But, I was a big… see, I can't say this because these guys are like, giant muscular superheroes, but if I had a magical transformation, I wouldn't mind being Captain Marvel. Although, there's a new Captain Marvel in the comics who's a lady alien, and she's hot. I would be a lady alien Captain Marvel."
