"Joss Whedon has been hired on again as boss of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and their superhero pals for a sequel to The Avengers.

The news came Tuesday from Walt Disney Co. chief executive officer Robert Iger, who said during a company earnings call that the filmmaker is returning to write and direct the sequel adapted from the Marvel Comics tales.

Iger also said Whedon is helping to develop a Marvel-based TV series for ABC. Marvel is a Disney subsidiary."

Interesting stuff. No surprise that they're doing a sequel to one of the best earning movies in history. I would guess either later 2014 (as Cap 2 is earlier that year) or go for May 2015.
