Nerds like myself everywhere this week are rejoicing from the news that a movie studio got some smarts and hired Joss Whedon to direct a feature film. And a major one no less. Joss will be helming The Avengers, which mashes together the Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and possibly Hulk movies into one film, no easy task for any director, much less one with only one film under his belt (Serenity).
But fans of Whedon know how brilliant the man is, and how he loves his comics. Go here to read how Joss got the job.
