From Dollhouse to Avengers Mansion?

The Avengers are a little closer to assembling today as it's being reported that Joss Whedon is in final talks to direct the much-anticipated movie. Whedon's only previous feature film credit is for Serenity, the big-screen spin-off of his series Firefly, but he has multiple directing credits for his various TV shows and, more importantly, has also written an acclaimed run of the original comic book. This is certainly his biggest gig to date though - it's fair to say that a lot is resting on the success of this movie, which, it is currently planned, will feature Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man, the newly cast Chris Evans as Captain America, Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury and, possibly, even Ed Norton as the Incredible Hulk and Chris Hemsworth as Thor, and is currently pencilled in to be released in May 2012.
