Buffy The Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon is in final talks to direct The Avengers movie, according to reports.

Joss, who is known for his writing and production work on TV, has long been rumoured to be in line for the job.

But Deadline Hollywood now reports he is in final negotiations to make the film, which will unite Marvel superheroes Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Shield leader Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) in an all-star team.

Marvel is also expected to introduce other superheroes to the movie.

Joss has directed one feature film, the critically acclaimed space western Serenity.

Highly anticipated by comic book fans, The Avengers is currently set for release in May 2012.
