In what can only be described as one of the most expected decisions in movie history, Slash Film is reporting that Joss Whedon has signed on to write and direct THE AVENGERS 2. He’ll also be involved in the creation of the rumored Marvel T.V. series that will take place in the Avengers universe.
This is good for everyone involved. Marvel gets to keep the director that helped make them a billion dollars and Whedon gets a dump truck full of cash emptied onto his face, mouth open.
