Firefly and Buffy creator Joss Whedon is getting set to take on his biggest challenge yet with the ensemble Marvel epic The Avengers. Read on for his comments hours before principal production begins.
Should be interesting to see how this all comes together. I'm not terribly interested in Thor or Captain America, but I'm interested to see how they manage to put them all together. Hopefully it'll work out and be great!
I just think anything the man has a hand in is genius and can't wait for what he can do with a massive budget. None of the Marvel movies have been fantastic so far, though Thor comes the closest.
Captain America looks simply dire.
Agreed, the man knows how to tell a compelling story and tell it well. If anyone can pull this together I think he can. Though I think Iron Man was a very good movie. It wasn't perfect, but did a great job of furthering the comic book movie genre.
one thing from him that will have more than just a cult following i hope....
Anything Joss Whedon does will be awesome. He has a following like none I've ever seen before. He also sees things in a different way and is a perfectionist. It is going to be great!
I still don't understand the love Serenity gets but yeah, I'm excited for his involvement.
It's not Serenity so much as it is Firefly the TV Show. There was some really good writing done in the show, IMHO, as well as a few that were expertly directed.
I've heard a lot of good things about Firefly, looking foward to checking it out when the discovery-science channel starts airing reruns.
I loved Serenity. I actually saw that first and it's what compelled me to watch all of Firefly.
You're in my territory now. Firefly was the best thing that happened to Friday nights and then they cancelled it. These characters were so well written. It was a sci fi but of us 500 years from now where but no aliens. They had to be loyal, tough, and smart to make it out in the universe. The whole cast was made for each other...they just seemed to click and they had a dry sense of humor that I just loved.
I have the season set of the 14 episodes of Firefly and Serenity and I do watch them at least once a year since they came out. They remind me of some friend of mine and myself when we were younger.
I'm telling you now that Joss Whedon is a genious and he will do this movie justice....I have no doubt of that.
Any chance he won't get interference from the studio this time? He's got the added baggage of the Marvel canon to stay true to...
I don't know about that but he's got his own way about dealing with things and he won't stop until he sees on the screen what he sees in his mind at night when he sleeps. I'm telling you...he's a little weird but he get it made right if it kills him.
