Joss Whedon In "Final Negotiations" To Direct The Avengers?

Illustration for article titled Joss Whedon In Final Negotiations To Direct The Avengers?

Is our favorite quirky auteur, Buffy/Firefly/Dollhouse creator Joss Whedon, really going to direct The Avengers, in which all of Marvel's movie superheroes combine into one powerhouse and presumably make a billion dollars? He's "wrapping up" the deal, says Variety.

BIG problem with this: Everyone expecting their favourite Whedon-actor to star.

Anyways, I used to be a huge Whedon-fan, but the aggressive, condescending hero-worship of the rabid fanboys/-girls has turned me a bit off. It's a huge shame, but there you go. So I'm not hyped for this.

Also, MY favourite quirky auteur is Jim Jarmusch, with Wes Anderson a close second. Eh, I certainly don't want any of them to direct The Avengers, I was just sayin'.
