Joss Whedon, creator of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Firefly" and "Dollhouse," not to mention one of the biggest geek icons in Hollywood, has been tapped to direct the "Avengers" movie, Variety reports
Not sure how many of you AHTO-nuts are in to super heroes (or their movies).. but I'm pretty sure most of you have heard of Joss Whedon, or watched one of his creations (be it voluntarily or happenstance).
Not really sure what I think of the news. While I'm sure he could do a great job, I can only wonder if some of his quirks should slip in the movie and really throw the target audience of kilter. Nothing worse than a nerd-raged mob
seems the article hit on it too
What's left to determine? How closely will this movie adhere to some of Whedon's signatures: Will the Mighty Thor burst into song, a la "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog?" Will one or more major characters get killed out of nowhere in the last third of the movie?
Usually I don't really care about superheroes, especially Marvel ones. I haven't even watched Iron Man yet. Even so, I am a clinically diagnosed Whedonite who will see this movie--- and like it. And they had better cast Amy Acker in it or I might do something drastic like watching it the day after release day.
I don't really know anything about the Avengers, but I loves me some Amy Acker. I don't know what role she should play, but she better not have a scared up face! That's why Dollhouse flopped! Seriously, that's the only reason. If her face was the normal, cute Fred face, the show would be in it's tenth season by now with a big screen movie in the works. Don't do the math, just accept, it's called faith. In this case, it is also axiomatic. If you think about it it will just hurt your head.
