Joss Whedon jokes chicks are into me; Remains tight lipped about 'Avengers'Joss Whedon had a big Comic-con weekend with the announcement that he is writing and directing The Avengers. So what little tid bits about the film could Whedon spill? Not much actually. "Most of the team will die and be gay. In that order, oddly," he said sarcastically.

Besides knowing how to dodge questions with humor, being surrounded by screaming female fans is something else Whedon has gotten used to. He explained to OnTheRedCarpet.com "Chicks are in to me and Ill tell you why, because Im happily married." He jokes, "When I was single they didnt like me at all. Great, thanks chicks!" 

He later added, "Avengers comes out in about two years so Im going to have to be rolling out information really slowly. I believe they will avenge, but I cannot confirm that."

Whedon created cult shows such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly. "I do think that I am putting together and extraordinary powerhouse cast and I'm just so excited to be in their presence and I hope they don't kill each other, because that'd be weird," Whedon us earlier about The Avengers.
