Joss Whedon directing The Avengers! Also, cold weather is cold!

Sure, it’s the worst kept secret in Hollywood, but at least we finally have confirmation from the man himself. Joss Whedon announced on-stage at Comic Con that he would be directing The Avengers for Marvel. He offered no further details on the project.

Whedon was asked about his involvement in the highly anticipated project during a panel with fellow geek icon J.J. Abrams. He responded in typically sly/hilarious manner.

“It’s is not an official thing, I think because Marvel couldn’t afford a press release. So can we make that an official thing? I’m directing ‘The Avengers’.”

Now, in an act of tremendous laziness, I shall point you in the direction of our original report from April.

The Avengers will arrive in cinemas May 2012.

Discuss: Pardon me while I try and reignite my three-month-old enthusiasm. Yay!
