Just in case you got excited that Joss Whedon was returning to the MCU – sorry, but he isn’t! But, and this is a big but, he is returning to Marvel to write a new Captain America story arc!
According to ComicBook.com, Whedon will return to Marvel alongside artist John Cassaday to tell a new story surrounding the legacy and legend of the Star-Spangled Avenger! This is very exciting news for comic book and Marvel fans, especially for those who are familiar with Whedon & Cassaday’s last team up on the best-selling Astonishing X-Men arc they developed together in 2004. Cassaday also has previous Captain America experience having drawn an issue of Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America!
So while Whedon may have left the Marvel Studios part of his life behind, relations between him and the comic book giant are clearly still peachy! Who knows, if things stay good he may even return for a spell once he’s had a well deserved break from the MCU!
The duo’s arc starts in Captain America: Sam Wilson #7 which is set for release on 30th of March! Better make sure you pick this one up on new comic book day!
