That’s right folks, after announcing the obvious -that there will be an Avengers 2, Disney have now confirmed that Joss Whedon will be back to write and direct the film!! This is excellent news, given the way The Avengers performed at the Box Office, Whedon is definitely a good man to put at the helm of the sequel and it just means the world can experience more of Whedon’s utter genius.
Don’t get too excited yet though (not that I am) Avengers 2 has no release date yet, and the earliest it will probably be slated for would be Summer of 2015. Next year with the release of Iron Man 3 sees the start of Marvel’s Phase 2 so we still have plenty to look forward to before the release of Avengers 2

Also, it appears that Whedon has agreed to develop a live-action TV series for US network ABC based on Marvel characters – a little bit more info here at SFX
