Joss Whedon To Write And Direct THE AVENGERS 2; Will Also Develop New Marvel TV Series
We'll update as soon as more details become available, but it has just been CONFIRMED by Walt Disney Studios that Joss Whedon will return to write and direct a sequel to The Avengers. He will also develop a new TV series based in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The news has just broken on a Walt Disney Investors Conference Call that Joss Whedon will return to write and direct the sequel to Marvel's The Avengers; the $1.5 billion dollar blockbuster of 2012. Bob Iger (the chairman and chief executive of The Walt Disney Company) also revealed that Whedon is involved with the development of an ABC live action television series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Stay tuned for further details.
As I'm sure you'll agree, this is incredibly exciting news. It was Joss Whedon's screenplay and skills behind the camera which made Marvel's The Avengers such an amazing comic book movie, and it's hard to imagine anyone being anything other than over the moon with the news that he will return to write and direct the planned sequel. There is currently no word on a release date (rumoured to be 2015) or what the TV series will involve.
