With the first Avengers movie, Joss Whedon said that there were a number of Avengers team members he would have loved to have had in the film, but there wasn’t enough time or room. With Avengers 2, Whedon has the opportunity to introduce more characters, and it sounds like two that may be making an appearance might be Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.
The first details about Joss Whedon’s SHIELD TV show are starting to emerge, and it look like it won’t have any well-known or established characters other than Maria Hill. Instead, it will be more about the day-to-day hard working men and women of SHIELD, keeping Earth safe.
Alien: Resurrection wasn’t that a great Alien movie, but the movie was written by Joss Whedon, who also devised the TV show Firefly among many others. And with one tiny logo put into an episode of Firefly, Whedon may have put the show into the Alien/Prometheus universe.
Joss Whedon talks about his canceled Wonder Woman movie, George Miller spills on Justice League movie
Wonder Woman and the Justice League are DC Comic’s two biggest MIA-why-the-fuck-haven’t-they-happened-yet movies. Whedon had been tapped to do Wonder Woman (snicker) in 2003 and director George Miller was supposed to get a Justice League movie going in 2007, but sadly, neither happened.
The original “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” web series, starring Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion turned out to be pretty good… honestly, a bit better than I had expected at first, and if you were a fan of the original, it looks like that Whedon’s working on a Dr. Horrible sequel.
Last year, Warner Bros was talking about doing a reboot of Buffy the Vampire slayer sans Joss Whedon, probably for the same reason as all franchise reboots these days, which is to maintain control of copyrights and to squeeze every last dime out of a good idea.
Joss Whedon announced the other day that at SDCC that he is in fact going to be directing The Avengers movie due out in 2012 after Captain America and Thor come out in 2011. So what does that mean? It means a lot of Whedon fans will be shit giggly happy and possibly putting themselves in a deep freeze until 2012. io9 got a chance to ask Whedon some questions about his take on the Avengers, mainly whether it will be influenced by “Civl War”:
