Joss Whedon Will Contribute Creatively For Marvel Studios Until 2015
  |  @   |  

Yesterday we reported that Walt Disney Studios had hired Joss Whedon to direct The Avengers 2. But the exciting news doesn’t stop there. The new deal between Disney and Whedon also included a live-action series for television, which would be produced by The Avengers director himself.

So as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to grow, the studio is releasing more details about the deal that was made yesterday, including the TV series made for ABC and how involved Whedon will be in the creative process for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

An official statement from Marvel reveals that Whedon is under contract until the year 2015. In addition to writing and directing The Avengers 2 as well as developing the new televised series, Whedon will also “contribute creatively to the next phase of Marvel’s cinematic universe.”

As if Whedon’s confirmation to direct The Avengers 2 wasn’t already exciting, now he will be participating in molding the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With Iron Man 3 well into production, its unlikely that Whedon could get his creative hands on the film. But he could pass off a few pointers to Alan Taylor when Thor: The Dark World starts shooting later this year. If Whedon could do what he did with The Avengers, then it should be interesting to see how his influence affects Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Ant-Man.

The statement also confirmed that The Avengers 2 could come as early as 2015. Although an exact release date isn’t scheduled, there’s no doubt that Marvel and Disney are aiming towards a summer release date.
