I'm delighted he's doing The Avengers. If he can bring half the charm of the firefly ensemble to it then it should be a thing to see. It really depends on how much writing he's done on it. It's someone else's screenplay I think
Maybe I have, maybe the problem is that the film was lauded as a sci-fi masterpiece, when in my eyes it was utter pish. Badly written, predictable story and bland characters. It felt too similar to Whedons TV stuff, which works fine on the small screen, but didnt translate on the biggun' for me.
I didnt see any of Firefly, I'm sure it was good, his TV stuff always is.
I would be willing to bet cash that The Avengers will be poor, although not as poor as if he was doing the screenplay.
As for Jack Green, yes he is a master, but surely the look of a film is, when it comes down to it, up to the Director, in this case Whedon. I will
eat my hat if the The Avengers is good, Im the first to admit my mistakes.
J-man or K, could you move this to a new "Joss Whedon" themed thread, I fear I may of hijacked this one.
Anyway, back to JJ, hes a fucking tool.
