Joss Whedon to direct supergroup movie THE AVENGERS, the biggest superhero movie yet

Dollhouse was canceled late last year, but Joss Whedon is just getting started. The TV auteur is in final negotiations to direct The Avengers for Marvel Studios, a huge project for the comic company. Deadline Hollywood reports that Whedon has been in contention for some time (first reported by IESB). He's an interesting and somewhat risky choice for the role.

This news is huge for Whedon, whose only major movie is Serenity, a 2005 film based on his canceled TV series Firefly, which became very popular when it hit DVD. Whedon rose to fame in the late 90s after creating the hit series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and spin-off series Angel. As of late, he seems to keep running into walls. Dollhouse, his latest TV series, was canceled last November. He also spent a long time writing a live-action screenplay for Wonder Woman, only to ultimately part ways with the studio. We do not know if he will get involved in the screenplay for The Avengers. Zak Penn is writing it.

GREEN LANTERN to have a CGI costume

Spider-Man, Iron Man, and Batman's costumes may have looked computer generated, but Green Lantern is about to take it to the next level. Ryan Reynolds will wear only a motion capture suit while filming Martin Cambell's version of the Green Lantern, reports /Film.

My problem, unlike heavy CGI characters of the past, like Spider-Man and Iron Man, Green Lantern shows his face. So we're going to have a computer generated body pasted on a real head--it could look bad, very bad. However, it should be noted that Green Lantern is a different kind of superhero. Much like Venom (Spider-Man villian), he can change his suit on the fly. From what I understand, it scans onto his body very quickly. The design is still a secret, but supposedly his suit should glow with energy. John Gholson from Cinematical thinks his chest logo may even hover out from his suit. Interesting, to be sure.
