JJ Abrams, Joss Whedon

Joss Whedon giveth, and Joss Whedon taketh away.

Good news first: After months of speculation that he would direct the movie about Marvel superteam The Avengers, he confirmed it at a Comic-Con panel hosted by Entertainment Weekly Thursday alongside J.J. Abrams.

"I'm still writing an outline," he added. But how's this for a tease?

Jaleel White on Playing Steve Urkel: "I Didn't Know What the Heck I Was Doing"

Family Matters

In 1989, ABC premiered the Perfect Strangers spin-off Family Matters, which featured a relatively unknown cast. Although the series focused on a middle-class African American family in Chicago, the breakout star was the Winslows' annoyingly dorky neighbor, Steve Urkel. Twenty years later, Jaleel White, who played Urkel, still looks back at the show that catapulted him into stardom with fond memories and says that, yes, people still ask him to do the famous "Urkel" voice. The 33-year-old spoke to TVGuide.com about his favorite memories from his nine seasons on the show, the first season of which is in stores on DVD Tuesday.
