As I'm sure most people have heard, Joss Whedon
is likely to be the director for The Avengers
movie. I'm optimistic, in general; he's a smart cookie with a keen eye for plot and dialogue. I just know that it's also a huge
undertaking, and he's really only directed one movie before, and that could only be graciously called a cult hit
. So, we'll see.
Also, the Disney XD channel is creating an Ultimate Spider-Man
cartoon, which I would normally be all over. But it doesn't give me much hope that we will get more Spectacular Spider-Man
, which as I noted, is one of the best cartoons in years.
