Who better to direct a motley crew of superheroes (The Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man and Thor among them) than Mr. Sci-Fi himself, Joss Whedon? Apparently Marvel agrees, because, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Whedon is in talks to direct The Avengers.

As an added bonus, it seems the same stars who have portrayed the superheroes in past and/or upcoming flicks (Robert Downey, Jr. as Ironman, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor) will don their respective costumes once again for The Avengers. Shooting is scheduled to begin early next year.
