News: Joss Whedon in Talks For The Avengers
There were rumours surrounding Josh Whedon being considered to helm the ultimate superhero movie The Avengers, thanks to IESB, but now Marvel Studios has now confirmed the story as they were in touch with the LA Times. The paper revealed that Marvel has signed no director yet but has been in talks with Whedon and he is on the shortlist to direct the film.
In my opinion it is a good choice, as he is obviously an avid comic book fan, writing many comics for Marvel, and also has worked on the comic book movie X-Men. He also has many successful TV shows including Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Serenity, Firefly and most recently Dollhouse. He also has an upcoming movie Cabin in the Woods starring Australian actor Chris Hemsworth, who is now beefing up for the role of Marvel superhero Thor, with the film out in cinemas next year.
The Avengers will smash into theatres 2012.
