Louis Leterrier on short list to direct The Avengers
Clash of the Titans director Louis Leterrier made the press rounds this weekend in support of his 3D epic, and in the process he revealed that he is on a shortlist to direct The Avengers. The enormous undertaking will bring together all of the title characters from Iron Man, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, and The First Avenger: Captain America. In speaking with AICN, Leterrier said this:

"I am on the shortlist, but I'm at the bottom of the shortlist, I'm sure. (Laughs) I don't know who the other guys are, but I have a great relationship with [Marvel], and I've been very vocal to them and everyone else that I am the one to direct it. I loved my time at Marvel. I loved those guys. They're fantastic. Kevin is such a passionate boss; he gets his hands dirty. It's a universe I want to keep exploring. I was frustrated with The Incredible Hulk. It was like, "That's it? Only one superhero? Can I do more???" We'll see. Time will tell."

The Avengers is set to hit theaters on May 4th, 2012. We will have more production information for you as soon as it is made available.
