'Avengers' And Beyond: Why Joss Whedon's Marvel Deal Is Great News

Whedon's new arrangement with Marvel Studios guarantees big things for fans of Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

Earth's mightiest heroes are reuniting with one of Earth's mightiest directors, as Joss Whedon has agreed to helm "Marvel's The Avengers 2." Not only that, but Whedon's new arrangement with Marvel Studios keeps him on board through June 2015, all but guaranteeing an "Avengers" sequel by May of that year. On top of his work on that film, Whedon will also contribute creatively to the studio's other upcoming projects from the "Thor" and "Captain America" sequels to the big-risk "Guardians of the Galaxy." He's also on tap to help develop a live-action Marvel television series, rumored to be set in the same continuity as "The Avengers."
