: They're still coming in.
Right, but that's just a general link. The relevant posts will quickly disappear into the ether of the past unless we link to them directly. (Of course, it doesn't help that Twitter doesn't allow you to click back and forth from one tweet to the next.)
Oh, and is that actually Joss doing the tweeting? It looks more like a fan operation. That, or he likes to talk about himself in the third person a lot.
Joss never tweets for himself.
Here's the story & official video
of Joss making the announcement from the EW site:
Following months of speculation, Whedon confirmed that he is, indeed, directing Marvel’s superhero-team-up movie, The Avengers. (See video of the announcement below.) But he said it’s still too early to get into details about the film, which will unite such beloved Marvel heroes as Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the Hulk. ”I’m still writing an outline,” Whedon said. “But the thing that made me excited to do it was just how completely counterintuitive it is. It makes no sense. These people shouldn’t be in the same room, let alone on the same team.” He paused. “And that, to me, is the very definition of family,” he added wryly.
