Avengers gets a Director.

Well Comic-con 2010 has started and news has started pouring out of San Diego on all this related to pop-culture.

One of the big movie announcments for Day 1 of Comic-Con this week was the man attached to direct the AVENGERS Film.

As Report over at ComingSoon.net, Joss Whedon went before the crowd in Hall H at the San Diego Convetion Centre announcing his involvement as director. As an update on where thins are at with the AVENGERS Whedon explains he’s still in the writing process but appears to be very excited to be working on these characters.

I have to admitI think it’s an interesting choice, Joss Whedon quite obviously has a large following of fans, though most of his higher profile projects in recent years have either failed to get off the ground or been very short lived. Having been involved in writing comics though and displaying an obvious passion for the material throughout his career I’m looking forward to his take on the AVENGERS.

THE AVENGERS is cheduled for a release worldwide on the 4th May. 2012

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
