7 08 2012

This makes me happy. Very, very happy. Joss has long been a favorite of mine, and he did a spectacular job on Avengers. I think TV is his true element, though, and it’s awesome to know he’ll be involved in whatever this mystery project turns out to be!

Joss Whedon is returning to both write and direct an Avengers sequel and develop a live-action Marvel TV series, Variety reports.

Joss Whedon answers questions at his Q&A panel during Comic Con 2012.

The news was announced by Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger on Tuesday during the company’s earnings call. The TV series will reportedly be for Disney-owned ABC, though it’s unconfirmed at this point if it’s related to the rumored show set in the Avengers world that was reported on late last month.

In May, Whedon told the Los Angeles Timesthat he was “very torn” about returning for a second Avengers film, calling it, “an enormous amount of work telling what is ultimately somebody else’s story.” Avengers has become the third highest-grossing film in box office history on both the domestic and worldwide charts, with a current combined total of $1.46 billion.

Whedon has an acclaimed background in TV as the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer,Angel and Firefly; all shows that cultivated loyal fanbases. Last month at Comic-Con in San Diego, he stated that he’d enjoy a return to television, saying, “TV rules. Most of the good storytelling being done on the screen in America is being done on TV”
