Joss Whedon Signed For Avengers 2

Tonight we can confirm that Joss Whedon is indeed returning to write and direct  The Avengers 2. The decision was announced by Disney Chairman Bob Iger earlier today. In addition to that, Iger announced that Whedon has been tapped to create a superhero-based TV series for ABC.

All of this follows the tremendous success of the adaptation of Marvel’s The Avengers, which has pulled in more than 1.5 billion dollars worldwide- more than enough to keep Disney from cancelling this series before its time!
