It was just announced on the Walt Disney Investors Conference Call that Joss Whedon will return for The Avengers sequel. Whedon is signed to both write and direct the upcoming sequel. Disney confirmed that Whedon is also involved in the development of the long-lead ABC live-action television series which will be set inside the Marvel cinematic universe.
First, glad and excited to hear about Avengers 2. Second, that ABC show sounds interesting, I hope it doesn’t suck. With Whedon involved it probably will not.
