Studios head Bob Iger announced during an earnings call with analysts that Joss Whedon will return to write and direct The Avengers 2.

Whedon will also develop a Marvel television series for ABC that will be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.


A release date for The Avengers as not been released yet, but it will presumbaly come after the already announced Iron Man 3 (May 3, 2013), Thor: The Dark World (Nov. 8, 2013),

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (April 4, 2014) and Guardians of the Galaxy (August 1, 2014). I can’t wait living you think everyone is this good news?

The Avengers is the third top-grossing movie of all time, trailing only Avatar and Titanic. The film has brought in $616.7 million domestically and $1.461 billion worldwide.


According to Variety, Warner Bros. is approaching Ben Affleck to direct its Justice League movie.

Affleck is coming off directing The Town, and, according to the report, is the only directing candidate who has been sent the Justice League script by Will Beall.


Variety speculates that because Affleck only directs movies in which he also stars, he could be playing one of the Justice Leaguers as well.


Affleck has a history with comic-book characters. He starred in 2003’s Daredevil and played Superman actor George Reeve in 2006’s Hollywood Land.


Affleck’s Argo is set for release on Oct. 12 from Warner Bros., and he is also attached to Warner’s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand.


* Marvel Comics has released details about Indestructible Hulk, the Marvel NOW! series by Mark Waid and Leinil Yu that launches in November.

Here’s how the book is described:


“Through his entire history, the Hulk has always been an indomitable force, more weapon than man. His alter ego, Dr. Bruce Banner, is one of the most intelligent men on the planet. NOW! combined, they have become the strongest, smartest weapon alive — Indestructible Hulk, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.!”


“Banner’s a changed man. No more stooping under the weight of ‘woe is me,’ no longer bespectacled, no longer a fashion victim in purple,” Waid said. “For decades, Banner’s felt like he’s no more than the Hulk’s helpless puppet. Now Banner’s using Hulk to his own mysterious ends.”
