Joss Whedon has confirmed a specific pair of siblings are going to be joining the cast for Avengers 2. Take the jump to find out who.
During the production of The Avengers, director Joss Whedon spent 12-days shooting his adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing in his backyard, and now the black and white feature is scheduled to arrive in theaters on June 14, 2013.
Good news for fans of Marvel’s The Avengers, Disney has confirmed that Joss Whedon is returning to write and direct Avengers 2.
Joss Whedon, Tim Minear and the primary cast of Firefly are going to have a special 10 year anniversary panel at Comicon this year. Firefly is the premier panel for the three the Science Channel is planning for the July 12-15th weekend. Maybe we can get some interesting news about the future of the series.
The film everyone is talking about hasn’t even been out for a week here in the states, but director Joss Whedon is already promising more footage on the Blu-Ray.
When the Avengers movie arrives, don’t be surprised to see that a lot of the film is seen from Captain America’s perspective.
In case you missed it, The Avengers movie begins shooting today, and Joss Whedon couldn’t be more excited.
The Avengers movie will need to start ramping up production soon if it hopes to pull in the fans of the Marvel film franchises. The big question floating around is, “How good of a film will the Avengers be?” Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor, got a peek at the film and thinks it is going to be huge.
“I saw a very early draft and, yeah, it’s incredible… Look, everything about the story in the comic books is huge. You have these huge, big superheroes and these huge, big egos kind of crammed into one small space. Reading the script, it was massive. Everything about it was like ‘oh my god.’ I said to Joss [Whedon], ‘I don’t know how you’re going to shoot this thing,’ but I’m excited to be on-board and let’s give it a go.”
So there you go. It will be massive. Huge. Crammed with egos. Probably the most important part about the quote is toward the end, when he wonders how the film will be shot. No doubt everything will come together at the end, but massive effects work tied to a massive story are going to require the skills of very talented people, and if the story turns out to be a Kree/Skrull war then the effects houses in H’wood are going to be very busy.
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.

With the number of times Fox has dumped Joss Whedon shows, you’d have expect him to call it quits with the network for good. Dollhouse, the Eliza Dushku sci-fi thriller, was axed after lower than expected ratings for the second season.
“Yes. Canceled. Sad but true,” tweeted Maurissa Tancharoen, a writer on “Dollhouse” who is married to Whedon’s brother Jed Whedon, also a writer on the show.
What’s a Whedon to do? Can you say, “Doctor Horrible Sing-Along Blog sequel”? Of course you can, and of course he is.
