Default Re: Joss Whedon leading on "Avengers" short list of directors - Part 1

He directed episodes of all of his shows outside of Buffy, and movie-wise, he directed an ensemble space adventure movie called Serenity (based on his show Firefly). It had a smaller budget than most major Hollywood romantic-comedies, but I think he made the most of it. It had plenty of action, and the cinematography and camerawork was lovely, too. There's a particularly nice long tracking shot after the title sequence that I hope we get something akin to in Avengers. Since his budget for Avengers will be at least 4x Serenity's budget (but probably more like 5x it's budget), I think it will look great.

Serenity's available on Netflix instant if you want to watch it.
