Question Whedonites... err Avengers Assemble!

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
Quote:
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?

I'm really not sure what to think, I'm not very familiar with his work.

At any rate, there not enough out yet to determine whether I'll see it or not, but having Joss Whedon directing it is pretty cool. [/firefly fan]

He was also one of the main writers on the original Toy Story.

I also read that he'll be perusing at the Captain America script.

It was a shame Dollhouse got sliced, it had really come along nicely by the middle of season 1. Gone are the days where Networks let series grow for a couple of seasons.

Bugger the superheroes and British mod superspies, Joss needs to get back into Space I reckonz.

I'm not going to say anything about my predictions because whether they are good or bad...it always turns out bad. Like my intentions are the grim reaper.

I do hope, regardless my predictions, that either this is the greatest marvel superhero film ever, or it just never happens at all.

If the guy was responsible for at least 50% of the jokes in Toy Story, then we just scored jackpot with this 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'm just glad Bryan Singer has nothing to do with it...

I second this. Oh, how I second this!

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.
