Joss Whedon is the Writer/Director for Avengers 2

It seems we just can’t stop Joss Whedon from doing all the awesome things we want him to do these days; Variety has confirmed that Whedon has signed on to write and direct Avengers 2. Just like we were hoping he would.

This also comes with news that his contract includes a role in developing the Marvel television series that is being created for ABC. Considering that this project seemed like a reach too far to many fans, this certainly helps assuage our fears for it.

The only problem is we now have to wait three whole years for this glorious film. And if Whedon has his way (which seems likely, given that he signed the contract) we’ll be getting an intimate, painful tale for our superpowered sequel. Is it 2015 yet?

Stubby the Rocket is the mascot. Stubby has already signed Joss Whedon to write and direct Stubby’s biopic, due out in 3017 (Whedon will be put in cryostasis for the millenium leading up to it).
