Back in April we were told that Joss Whedon had agreed to direct The Avengers but I'm now thinking that the agreement was only verbal, as it has taken until now for the director to openly confirm his involvement.

Joss Whedon to Direct The Avengers

I guess he figured that San Diego Comic Con was the best time to confirm his helming status on The Avengers, as that's what he did. Here is what he had to say:

"It's not an official thing, I think because Marvel couldn't afford a press release," Whedon said. "So can we make that an official thing? I'm directing 'The Avengers.' " Asked what his take will be on the film, Whedon replied, "I am still writing an outline. I'm still in that stage. I will say the thing I love about it, the thing that made me excited to do it, is how counterintuitive it is. These people shouldn't be in the same room -- and that is the very definition of family."

While it's great news for the film, those of you anxiously awaiting for a Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog sequel or feature film, Whedon has now put that one on the backburner. (sorry)
