Joss Whedon has signed on to write and direct the Avengers 2 movie.

After the unparalleled success of the Avengers, which earned nearly $1.5 billion worldwide, Whedon has signed on to write and direct the follow-up. Doing the sequel will be no easy task after the phenomenal success of his first Marvel Comic adaptation.

Whedon has previously mentioned, “It’s an enormous amount of work telling what is ultimately somebody else’s story, even though I feel like I did get to put myself into it. But at the same time, I have a bunch of ideas, and they all seem really cool.” So it’s great that he seems to have found a way to do that. Avengers 2 will likely be out some time in 2015.

In addition, Whedon will develop a live-action TV series set in the Marvel universe for ABC.
