Joss Whedon Set to Direct The AvengersAuthor: Jon Martin | Tuesday, April 13th, 2010 |
Today it was announced that Marvel Studios is in final negotiaions with Joss Whedon to direct the upcoming Marvel film ‘The Avengers’.
Captain America says: HELL YEAH!
So far the cast list looks a little like this:
Robert Downey Jr - Iron Man
Chris Evans – Captain America
Chris Hemsworth - Thor
Samuel L Jackson – Nick Fury
Secretly Hoping Will be in the cast:
Natalie Portman as Jane Foster
Portman is in Thor, so hopefully she’ll pop up in the epic conclusion in The Avengers.
Whedon has been a favorite and on the directors list for quite a while. He’s had a rabid fanbase for almost all his works regardless of their popularity, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Serenity.

Marvel has said that all of the individual superhero movies(Thor, Iron Man, Captain America) are an intro to The Avengers, so you know it’s going to be incredibly epic… nothing like it has ever been done before. The film will be released in the first weekend of May, 2012.
