Avengers Director Announced…Finally!

Finally, this legendary team of super heroes has a phenomenal creative director behind them. Joss Whedon has been confirmed as the director for upcoming Avengers project.

Joss Whedon is the creative mind behind TV shows such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Firefly. It is finally nice to know that someone has been confirmed to head this project since it has been discussed about for the last couple of years. As the Emperor from Star Wars would say, “Everything is going according to plan!”


Edward Norton not in Avengers

This is very sad news! Edward Norton will not be reprising his role as Bruce Banner/The Hulk in the upcoming Avengers film that is set to be released in the summer of 2012.

When Edward Norton was set to make The Incredible Hulk, it was reported that there were disputes between him and Marvel Entertainment on the direction of the film. Well they did set aside their differences and put together a wonderfully crafted film that really out did the last film with Eric Bana.

Well I guess those disputes came back up and with that Mr. Norton will no longer be in the picture which means they will have to find a new Bruce/Hulk to take over the character for the Avengers film.

Perhaps they can use Eric Bana again afterall he did do a good job as Hulk its just that the rest of the film…sucked.
