Joss Whedon has officially signed on to write and direct The Avengers sequel

He has also signed a three year contract with Marvel, which will include not just the sequel but also developing a Marvel-based television series for ABC. Needless to say, this man will be quite a busy bee, not just with Marvel but with his own projects as well. Marvel seems to have a lot of faith and trust in him, and rightfully so. In my opinion, he deserves this kind of recognition and I'm very, very proud of him.

There's already some speculations on which of the Marvelverse should be adapted to the small screen. Which one do you think Joss should tackle? And which Whedon alumni do you predict will be featured in it?

So excited. Best news ever. Joss is boss. Haters to the left.

I don't know much about the comics, so I couldn't really say what he should do. I'd love a show focusing on Natasha and/or Clint, but I don't think the actors would do it.

I wonder if the series will coincide with the movie. Like, it'll introduce other Marvelverse characters that probably won't be in the other movies coming out. Perhaps something SHIELD-centric, while at the same time focusing on multiple characters throughout?

Regardless, I kinda want Joss to be involved with more kickass women on television again.

More Natasha would be lovely, but yeah idk if the actors would be up for a television contract. I still want a Black Widow movie, no doubt about it, and him to write/direct it. But that is still up in the air, at the current moment.
