Joss Wheadon is about to be wicked employed.

Joss was all like, " I don't want to do the next movie. But it should be smaller and more personal." First, that's a mean thing to say when you drop Thanos in the last 30 seconds of the movie. Also, Marvel is just going to drive dump trucks full of money to his front door.

Hollywood, AP - Avengers director Joss Wheadon says today that he will not direct, produce, or otherwise make awesome the inevitable Avengers single.

"I just felt like I walked away from my roots by making that movie totally (freaking) rock. I'm gonna go back to what I do best; hiring Nathan Fillion, Eliza Dushku, and Alan Tudyk to be in complicated action-dramas with a heavy dose of humor that are specifically aimed at an impossibly small audience that will adore me."

Reports are starting to filter in from across the country that nerds everywhere have already begun arguing over hypothetical plot points and tangential characters.

You're right, because no one has ever made money  offering Nathan Fillion a lead role. ;D

That's an undersell of Thanos. Also, nothing Thanos does is "Small and Personal"

I'm kinda sorta holding out to call "best superhero movie of all time" until I see this fella in one:



But I have to admit, Thanos... that's promising.

Lots of rumors that Thanos will be the bad guy in Thor 2 and may have nothing to do with the next Avengers.

Or they're setting up a Guardians of the Galaxy movie. I've seen rumors of that too. That'll be great too. But whoever the villain is the Avengers has made me a whole lot more excited for Thor 2.

The Avengers was fantastic. I wasn't expecting much because I'm not a big comic book movie fan. But I was blown away. Impressive.

Edgar which list is this?

Not bad. I'd have made KG the hulk or at the very least covered up that blonde hair with the helmet if he had to be the Thor.

New Batman movie is my #2 movie to see this summer.

My #1 isn't super hero related but I think is going to be an amazing film;  Prometheus.

It just got an "R" rating so it'll be interesting to see what numbers it ends up grossing but I still expect it to be one of the more successful films of the summer.

It really is tremendous what Joss Whedon has done with the Avengers film.

Usually, when you have a lot of characters thrown together, there is a great chance it turns into a big cluster "u know what".

That didn't happen here and each super hero received enough screen time and relevance in the film.

It's practically unheard of.

If you look back on the X-Men franchise, a superhero film with a lot of characters, it was mainly all about Wolverine and to some extent the Charles Xavier/Eric Lensher relationship.

I really have no real qualms with the X-Men films because they were essentially the franchise that jump started the superhero film craze. (Credit to Blade films for techically really starting it, but X-Men boomed it to another level).

But looking back on the X-Men, Wolverine was no doubt the most popular and best character to focus on, but Cyclops, The Dark Phoenix....really got the shaft.

Avengers really didn't shaft any of the characters. And that is attributed to a great job by Whedon for his script and directing.

Man I'd LOVE to see Omega Red in an X-Men movie. Hard to believe he hasn't appeared in one already.

He was always one of my favorite X-men foes, and his Russian origins could flesh out Collosus some (I Hope).

Cable, Bishop, holler.

Also that Deadpool movie starring ryan reynolds would've been awesome.
