Yesterday was Disney’s annual earning’s call, and as they want to give investors a reason to invest in the company; they revealed some news about what’s coming down the pipe. Disney’s a huge company with television, movies, and theme parks to talk about in the call, but the part dealing with Marvel had some really big news. Firstly, Joss Whedon will return to write and direct The Avengers 2. A date wasn’t set, but it’s petty much a sure bet for May 2015.
The other bit of Whedon news is that he will develop that live action Marvel series that was rumored about a week ago. No details about the series was revealed in the call, but it will be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s also not known how del Toro’s forthcoming Hulk series for ABC will be affected by it. Still, Whedon fans should be happy to see him back for the sequel and being given another chance with television.
