There have been rumblings and rumors that Joss Whedon was all set to direct the Avengers movie for Marvel, and today he made it official at the Marvel Studios panel.
“The thing I love about it is how completely counter-intuitive it is,” confessed Whedon. “These people should not be in the same room, much less the same team. The very definition of family.”
I think Whedon should do just fine with this project as he’s no stranger to ensemble tales, and this may be his chance to tell his most epic story yet.
