We finally learn the Marvel television show that The Avengers director Joss Whedon is involved with.

As part of his new contract with Marvel Studios and Disney, Joss Whedon will not only be directing The Avengers 2, but also — S.H.I.E.L.D.!

Deadline has it that Whedon may co-write the new live-action S.H.I.E.L.D. (not to be confused with the F/X series?!) and also possibly direct.

The series has been immediately green lit by ABC - the first Marvel project to do so - and also will have Marvel Comics scribe and Head of TV, Jeph Loeb, involved.

In addition to Joss Whedon on as writer, his brother, Jed Whedon, and also Maurissa Tancharoen are listed.

Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen are also said to be executive producers with Jeffrey Bell and Loeb.

Deadline states that time permitting, Joss Whedon will direct.

It's previously been said that the new TV series would involve characters not in The Avengers movie.

I saw The Avengers twice — and didn't see S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Wendell Vaughn, better known as Quasar!

Interestingly enough, Vaughn was rumored to appear in The Avengers movie.
