The LA Times and others report that Joss Whedon is on board to return for Marvel’s “Avengers 2″ sequel after the success of the first “Avengers” film.  Whedon will also develop a Marvel-based program for ABC.

“Joss Whedon has signed an exclusive deal with Marvel Studios for film and television through the end of June 2015,” Marvel said in a statement Tuesday.

“As part of that deal, Whedon will write and direct Marvel’s ‘Avengers 2′ as well as help develop a new live action series for Marvel Television at ABC.  He will also contribute creatively to the next phase of Marvel’s cinematic universe.”
