Disney: Joss Whedon Will Write, Direct “Avengers 2″

by on August 7, 2012

Okay, now we know from the Disney investors conference call today that Joss Whedon has signed on to write and direct Avengers 2. And not just that; CEO Bob Iger said that Whedon’s on board to develop a live-action Marvel TV show for ABC. No details, no other information, but there it is. Sequels are often, well, not as good as the original, but with Whedon at the helm and, presumably, the primary cast back for more, are you optimistic that the next one, which, from the mid-credit sequence scene we’ve all gathered involves Thanos as the villain, is going to equal or better the first?

And, no, you don’t have to start queuing up yet.
