Joss Whedon Has Officially Signed on for "Avengers" Sequel

Though he was torn about returning to the franchise, EW is reporting that Disney chairman Bob Iger has confirmed that Avengers writer/director Joss Whedon is officially signed on for a sequel to the film. The news was revealed during a conference call about Disney's quarterly earnings. 

Additionally, Iger stated that Whedon is in the process of developing a live-action series based on the Marvel universe - could it, perhaps, be this upcoming show for ABC? - but didn't give any further details on the project. 

We'll keep you updated with news about both of these developments as it becomes available. For now, however, rejoice!
