Joss Whedon is back!
Disney and Marvel have signed Whedon to write and direct the Avengers sequel.
He also will create a Marvel-related TV series for ABC.
Disney CEO Robert Iger revealed the plans during an earnings call Tuesday, during which he boasted about Avengers being the third-biggest movie of all time and that Disney has initiatives in the works to “leverage the power of the Avengers” across the entire company.
His double duties on the film and TV sides might be a hint that Marvel could be creating not only multiple movies but an even broader universe that also includes the small screen.
ABC still is developing a potential Hulk series with Guillermo del Toro attached. “It wasn’t going to be ready this season, but we hope it’s going to be ready for next season,” ABC entertainment president Paul Lee said in May.
