Avengers Assemble's director Joss Whedon will be returning to make the sequel of the hit movie.

The first film was a huge success, taking nearly a £1billion worldwide, making it the third biggest movie ever!

Joss will write and direct the sequel as well as help make a live action TV series featuring Marvel characters.

But before the new film is released, superhero fans can look forward to Iron Man 3, due out next May, and the sequel to Captain America, due out in 2014.
