“It’s been a challenging process because I feel like my intention from day one, when I first joined the cast, was to hopefully come in, have fun, and create a character that people will hopefully like and try to elevate the franchise, but in the process of elevating the franchise, I have always thought that in order for this to have real longevity and legs, we should spin out and create characters that can live on their own.”
He didn’t give much new details about the upcoming movie, he simply said “We’ve got a lot of surprises.” He did say that he wants to simply make a great movie, and that’s the main thing: “At the end of the day, the only thing I want to do is make a great movie for the fans.”
