Joss Whedon Agrees to Direct Avengers Sequel

Avengers turned out to be one of the best things that happened to Disney’s shareholders, as it was reportedly responsible for lifting the studio’s third quarter earnings to nearly $11.1 billion, or 4 percent of the previous one. It also meant that their profits were up by 24 percent to $1.8 billion over the same quarter. And now, it seems the franchise is getting ready to do the same thing again, starting with the confirmation that director Joss Whedon will be returning to write and direct the sequel to the Marvel superhero blockbuster.

Recently, the declining home entertainment revenues were pulling down Disney’s bottom line, but it was offset by the massive success of the Avengers movie. There is also the fact that there is an increase in attendance in their theme parks, and their cable network and broadcasting revenues continue to be massive successes.

Whedon’s return in Avengers 2 is confirmed by Disney as part of an exclusive deal that the filmmaker has signed with Marvel Studios (which Disney owns), with said deal being effective until June 2015.
