Joss Whedon signed for Avengers 2

I don't think there's much doubt that a big part of The Avengers success was due to writer/director Joss Whedon's handling of the characters and lovingly comic sensibilities. Well now the good news is he's going to back for Avengers 2, but it gets even better (at least for Marvel). Marvel has Whedon signed to an exclusive contract for film and television through June 2015. This suggests that Avengers 2 will be landing in May 2015. Whedon will also be developing a Marvel TV series for ABC to be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While Whedon's work on Avengers was fantastic, it's his work on TV series like Firefly and Buffy the Vampire Slayer that have cemented his place is so many geek hearts. Whedon's return is great news for a few reasons. Among these are Whedon's comments that he'd like more female characters, so here's hoping for Carol Danvers to put in an appearance, and also more time for Hawkeye as something other than a meet puppet.
