The big news broke last night that yes, Joss Whedon is returning to TV in a big way, and not with Fox. Variety is reporting that ABC has ordered a pilot for a series based on S.H.I.E.L.D., and as soon as possible.

Because of Joss' busy schedule, he will hand off the showrunning duties to Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen Whedon, but is set to direct the pilot, as long as he has time.

It's a good day, folks. A very good day indeed.

Sounds like he's doing his own origin story for the Age of Ultron, without Hank Pym. Whedon says, "We're basically taking the things from the comics for the movies that we need and can use. A lot of stuff has to fall by the wayside." My guess is that Hank Pym isn't "famous enough" for this big budget flick.
