When you direct and rewrite one of the biggest films of all time, and are often considered the architect of said feature for pulling off the various and disparate movie threads that lead to that complex feat, everyone wants to know what you're going to do for an encore.
So in some respects, it's understandable why so many people are desperate to know whether Joss Whedon will direct the sequel to "The Avengers," now the third highest grossing film of all time ($612.3 million domestically and $1.46 billion worldwide). Asked at Comic-Con today, during a 10-year anniversary panel for his now-defunct space western TV show, "Firefly," whether the filmmaker would helm the next "Avengers" film, Whedon remained non-committal. “I have not come to a decision on directing 'Avengers 2' yet,” he said. “I am having too much fun with this (Firefly reunion) now.”
