The Avengers was an awesome movie, we all know that by now. And a huge part of that was the fact that it was written by Joss Whedon, a man who knows how to put a bunch of strong, witty characters in a room and have them convincingly work together even though they sometimes hate each other with a passion. Well, good news! He’s coming back to write and direct the sequel, and oh my money can’t fly out of my wallet fast enough. From HuffPo

The Avengers 2 is happening with Joss Whedon. That’s the word from Disney, as the studio confirmed Whedon will both write and direct the upcoming Avengers sequel during a conference call for investors on Tuesday afternoon. In a twist, Whedon will also help Marvel and ABC develop a new television series that takes place within The Avengers universe. While this might have all seemed like a foregone conclusion — Marvel’s The Avengers has earned over $1.46 billion around the world, with many crediting Whedon’s mix of source-material reverence and sense of humor as part of the reason why — Whedon wasn’t sure if he would return for the sequel as late as Comic-Con in July.

Wait, how could he NOT? Did he see how much the last one made? BIZONKERS MONEY. For that kind of money, I would write, direct, and act out each individual part. I don’t think that’s actually possible, but for that kind of money, I would bend the rules of time and space. Oh! Finger puppets! That’s how I’d do it. With finger puppets. Problem solved!
