Good news everyone, Disney has announced that fan favorite writer/director Joss Whedon is returning to both write and direct The Avengers 2. There is no way anyone can think this is a bad idea. Whedon nailed The Avengers. It was probably my favorite movie of the summer. Whedon is long known for being able to handle large ensemble casts and that is exactly what The Avengers was.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel Studios signed Whedon to an exclusive deal for film and TV through June 2015. There is further news that Whedon will be involved in a live action TV series for ABC. Rumors are this show will somehow tie in to The Avengers movie world. This could lead to some very interesting cross connecting TV and movie series.
Good move Marvel and Disney. For what its worth, I think you made the right move!
