"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" Creator to Direct "The Avengers" 


We're all buzzing about with excitement to hear that Joss Whedon, the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" god, is about to sign to direct Marvel Studios' "The Avengers." Yay!

I love "Buffy" so much that I devoted my thesis in school to the iconic show, and that's largely because of Whedon. And here's hoping that the director will do justice to "The Avengers."

It's an all-star team of Marvel superheroes such as Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), and SHIELD leader Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Apparently, Marvel wants Edward Norton to return as the Hulk too, so we'll see.

Whedon is a comic book geek at heart (he wrote the 2004 "Astonishing X-Men" comic book series for Marvel) so he's the perfect choice. Perfect I say!
