Joss Whedon confirms he will direct “Avengers”

Joss Whedon confirmed at Comic-Con on Thursday that he is, indeed, directing “The Avengers.”

“It’s not an official thing, I think because Marvel couldn’t afford a press release,” the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” creator said during a panel with fellow fanboy favorite J.J. Abrams. “So can we make that an official thing? I’m directing ‘The Avengers.'”

The project is based on a Marvel comic all-star series that brought together Captain America, the Hulk and Iron Man, among others.

“I am still writing an outline. I’m still in that stage,” Whedon said. “I will say the thing I love about it, the thing that made me excited to do it, is how counterintuitive it is. These people shouldn’t be in the same room — and that is the very definition of family.”
