After the disappointment of Wonder Woman, a project that Joss was slated to write and direct several years ago and that fell apart for various reasons, I am so happy that he is back on board with a high-profile superhero project, Marvel’s The Avengers, a big-budget, special-effects-laden extravaganza. As any serious Whedon fan knows, Joss does superheros really well (see “Ode to Joss Whedon #1”), and I expect this movie will not disappoint. More importantly, from the short trailer it’s evident that his trademark humor is firmly in place.
Marvel’s The Avengers is directed and co-written by Joss Whedon and comes out on May 4, 2012. See you at the movies!
