Joss Whedon to direct The Avengers movie? 9 years 3 months ago #389239

Caught this on Ain't it Cool News and SuperheroHype but it appears Joss Whedon is in final negotiations to direct The Avengers movie...I think the nerd world might cream their pants once this becomes truth...http://www.superherohype.com/news/avengersnews.php?id=9279http://www.aintitcool.com/node/44644
Deadline New York reports that Marvel Studios is moving ahead with Joss Whedon as director of The Avengers. The site says he is now in final negotiations to helm the action adventure scheduled for a May 4, 2012 release.The film would feature many of the lead actors involved in Marvel Studios adaptations right now, including Robert Downey Jr. ("Iron Man" films), Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and more.Paramount Pictures will distribute the film.Whedon's credits include "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Firefly," "Angel," Serenity, "Dollhouse" and upcoming The Cabin in the Woods.
No doubt he'll cast Nathan Fillion as something...Personally i'm not of anything he's done (except maybe Dr Horrible)... I'm sure i'll catch flack for this but i don't think he can handle this movie... Everything he's does is very quirky and i don't think im going to want to sit thru Tony Stark and Capt America trading smug one liners the whole movie... But whatever thats just my bias... All im saying is i hope he proves me wrong and doesn't fuck this up...

You've got to check his work in the Astonishing X-Men comic book. He has the right comic book sensibilities as well as the ability as a director to make you care about large groups of people really quickly. It's an interesting pick.

I'm curious what you guys think of this news if there's a Fantastic Forum tonight?
