Joss Whedon: The Next Avengers

Joss Whedon, the Next Avenger

           Disney knows to hold on to a good thing.  Joss Whedon, the man at the helm of the billion dollar giant The Avengers, is now officially in charge of the next Avengers movie, as well as possible Marvel television shows.  Whedon not only directs but also writes for his Avengers, and manages to bring humor and heart to the series, highlighting and celebrating each Marvel hero with respect and affection.  He is the much celebrated to creator of shows like Buffy and Firefly, and has stated that he is full of ideas for the Marvel future.
        I am just glad Disney is recognizing Joss Whedon's ability to tell stories.  There's been a lot of debate over who the biggest hero and leader of The Avengers was, but I'd argue it was and is Joss Whedon.  He gave The Avengers something to actually avenge after all! (Pause for a moment of silence for Agent Coulson)  I'm relieved he'll keep leading them through their next giant blockbuster.  There isn't a man better for the job.
