Joss Whedon OFFICIALLY signs on to direct The Avengers 2

Can you imagine if the writer/director DIDN'T sign on?  There would be geek riots all over the country.  Ok, maybe that's exaggerating, but this is really good news.  Marvel is setting up 'Phase 2' of their movies, beginning with Iron Man 3 next year.  Signing Whedon is the best thing they could have done for their Avengers franchise.  In my opinion, and something I explained in my review of The Avengers, Whedon knows what he's doing.  He knows the world these characters live in, he knows the mythology, and perhaps most importantly, he knows how to make them contemporary for our times.

Whedon will be writing and directing the sequel, due out in theaters Summer of 2015.  Can't wait!
