Joss Whedon will be back to write and direct The Avengers 2
Most likely a sigh of relief has washed over fans today as Disney announced that Joss Whedon would be returning to write and direct THE AVENGERS 2. Just a few weeks ago Joss Whedon stated at ComicCon2012 that he had not decided whether or not to return for the sequel but luckily Disney filled his pockets with cash twisted his arm and convinced him to return for another go at the franchise. Sadly THE AVENGERS 2 isn’t anywhere near production as THOR: THE DARK WORLD, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER and IRON MAN 3 are currently in the works, although just knowing that Joss Whedon is back on board means that this writer is willing to wait as long as it takes to get another great installment in THE AVENGERS franchise.
THE AVENGERS, directed by Joss Whedon and starring: Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth and Samuel L. Jackson, will be coming to Blu-ray on September 25th, 2012. (Deadline)
