Joss Whedon Will Direct Avengers 2 & A Marvel TV Show
After some talk as to whether Joss Whedon would get behind the lens for The Avengers sequel, it has been confirmed that he will certainly be back for the film that is slated for release in 2016. But that’s not the only big news: Whedon has also signed on for an as-yet-untitled Marvel TV series. Marvel said in a statement to IGN Tuesday.
“Joss Whedon has signed an exclusive deal with Marvel Studios for film and television through the end of June 2015. As part of that deal, Whedon will write and direct Marvel’s ‘Avengers 2′ as well as help develop a new live action series for Marvel Television at ABC. He will also contribute creatively to the next phase of Marvel’s cinematic universe.”
This is great news considering that Whedon was brilliant with his handling of The Avengers. One can only hope for the same when the sequel comes.
