I like Joss Whedon (which is a little odd–and mildly creepy–since I have never met the man). He not only can direct kick-arse action films (“Serenity,” “The Avengers”) but he also has this snarky way toward responding to events around him that’s refreshing, especially in these days of self-important commentators that are more about telling you what the news is, as opposed to giving you the information, and letting you decide yourself.
Here’s his commentary on the upcoming Presidential election, and why you should perhaps consider voting for Mitt Romney.
Personally, as much as I like the idea of zombies, I like it even better not facing them, so Obama is my man.
Marvel has a new, downloadable “Avengers” poster. I like the glassy minimalist look that doesn’t attempt to reveal the whole film. I’m psyched because I am a fan of Joss Whedon‘s Serenity (which is somewhat ironic because I am not too crazy about “Firefly,” the television series which was the basis for “Serenity.”), and think he has a thing for ensemble casts.
The reason I titled this post ‘Remember When I Told You Not Leave During “Thor” Credits?’ is because I knew that there was an added scene that showed up only after they were done, though I had no idea that people that stayed would get an added bonus beyond the ‘hidden’ scene itself.
Who’s Joss Whedon, you might ask? He created “Buffy, The Vampire Slayer” television series, as well as “Angel,” “Firefly,” “Dollhouse” and wrote screenplays for numerous films, such as “Toy Story,” “Alien: Resurrection” and “Serenity”, and will be directing Marvel’s upcoming “Avengers.”
So–if you stayed till after the credits–you not only got to see a cool intro to an artifact that plays a significant role in the upcoming “Captain America: The First Avenger,” but–unbeknownst to us all–witnessed the directoral chops of Mr. Whedon.
