Pony...I think my point is more to the fact that, Whedon has a huge fan base for his work with Firefly and Angel and Buffy. But that still did not help his movie ''Serenety''. Sure you had to be a fan of the show to like the movie but still.

It's true directors for Marvel's new era of movie had not been through huge productions like the one Avengers will be but, I guess it's obvious I'm not a fan of Whedon and, his credibility is shaky for me.

So, instead of having say, Leterier or someone like Ritchie or even, why not Speilberg, I'm just not sold on the idea of a man who I believe has a huge hype for nothing...that's all.

after the credits in Iron Man 2, Nick Fury will introduce Stark to Thor, and they'll be standing around Cap's body frozen in ice.  that way they don't have to show his face.  (since Evans wasn't cast as Cap when filming ended for Iron Man 2.)

Jedi, for whatever reason Serenity didn't do very well (though I think it made its money back) but it had nothing to do with the script or Whedons direction.  People liked it who had never seen Firefly before. Avengers is in good hands..Just think if Spielberg did do it.  You would have a 50/50 chance of him having about 5 or 6 kids in the movie and that would guarantee a bad movie.

Nothing wrong with Fox as long as she continues to be eye candy.  I don't want her in any kind of leading role but I have no problem looking at her in a movie.

@ jedibanner - You seem to think Whedon is a poor choice for Avengers because his only other feature film wasn't a big financial success.  This is a non-issue, in my opinion, because the built in audience for Avengers is going to be so big it will make money no matter what.  I also disagree that you had to be a fan of "Firefly" to like "Serenity."  I have still never seen an episode of "Firefly" and I enjoyed "Serenity."  It's not my favorite movie, but it was well done and I could follow it with absolutely zero information on the premise or characters.

I'm glad for the announcement of Whedon, because as others have mentioned, he is great a balancing multiple characters without any of them feeling short-changed.  A lot of people on this site have complained that the X-Men movies became too dominated by Wolverine.  With Whedon on board, I don't think we have to worry about Avengers not named Captain America and Iron Man getting short changed (since Cap and Iron Man will almost certainly be the most popular characters going in to the movie).

Whedon is a TV guy, Serenity looks the same as an episode of Firefly.  Why you cats excited again?

Joss Whedon is sooooo overrated . People forget that this guy  wrote Alien Resurrection.

Wiseguy: You are correct with your observations about Megan Fox. Glad to know someone else out there notices that about her.

Good to hear that Joss Whedon is directing The Avengers. Still nothing about the Hulk being apart of it? They seriously need to get that sorted out before they start filming.

DarthDuck: No you are not the only one still enjoying anything and everything about Iron Man 2. I think all of us are. :D

Speaking of that post-cred scene in Iron Man 2, I sure hope it is Iron Man chasing after Bruce Banner only to watch him transform into the Hulk and thus respond to it with, "I'm gonna need a bigger suit."

I just wanted to point out something in regards to a previous comment Louis Leterrier said about the Hulk sequel not making sense with the Avengers in the world. In the first movie, while the Hulk was duking it out with the Abomination in Harlem, Iron Man was already around by this time. Chronologically, I know that Banner became the Hulk a few years before Stark got taken captive in the Middle East, but around the time that the fight was taking place in Harlem Iron Man was already in existence. Why didn't he intervene? For that matter, why didn't S.H.I.E.L.D. intervene? So please, let's not talk about Hulk not making sense in a world where the Avengers are present, because if one of them can overlook a serious battle like that taking place in New York City, then I think the Hulk can have many adventures on his own in sequels.

I hope Lobo pans out. Don't much care about Green Hornet.

So they are finally making an Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon, aside from the fact that Spectacular Spider-Man was partially based on the Ultimate Spider-Man comics? :P Either way, I'll watch it. It's Spider-Man! Not too interested at the moment in the casting of the new movie, though.

Good points about Iron Man not interviening Krathwardroid...

Maybe Iron Man was fighting Iron Monger at that exact same moment ;)


Also Shield was involved in so much that Gen. Ross was acting in their absence. He had access to their tech, computer data base, and equipment.

Still not sure about Thor, but the cast for Avengers is looking good.  Wow that will be huge.  As for the director.  I love Firefly, so I know he can direct.  This could be good.

I have faith in Whedon, he is a comicbook fan. And will probly be true too the characters. This would probly be a stepping stone on getting Angel and Buffy back for a series of specials on tv. While I liked the way Buffy ended. I was disappointed with the way Angel ended. Even my ex, who was not a big fan of the shows, said "That's it?" Having read the graphic novel, depicting what happened next with the characters, I think the story would translate too the tv screen has well.

Has too Norton being in a hulk sequel or the Avengers movie. I would see it. He was more of a Bruce Banner then Eric Banna was in the first movie. But I also heard that there were problems on the Incredible Hulk set with Norton wanting too much say on his character and lines, ect. I would say leave it too Whedon. He's gonna have his hand full with the other cast members, story, ect. So hopefully there will be no actors with chips on their shoulders, or inflated egos on the set.
