‘The Avengers’ finds its director in Joss Whedon!

Here’s some news that I’m positive will make at least one of my readers happy—‘The Avengers’ is  officially becoming a big deal!!

According to Deadline, Joss Whedon–the guy behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer–is in final negotiations with Marvel Studios to direct the mother-load of superhero films, ‘The Avengers.’  The film is scheduled to be released in May of 2012 and will feature  Iron Man (Robert Downey,Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Helmsworth) and other notable superheroes.  The production status on the aforementioned films are underway as well— Iron Man 2 will be released next month, ‘Thor’ is currently filming in New Mexico and Captain America starts this summer in Europe.

It’s a race to the finish line because ‘Thor’ and ‘Captain America’ are scheduled to be released next year, just in time for one of the biggest films of the decade.  Yes, I think ‘The Avengers’ will be that epic.

I can’t wait!

Good Luck Joss!
