Re: Joss Whedon leading on "Avengers" short list of directors - Part 1
As much as I want to see the Avengers on film, the main reason I want this to be successful is for Joss to get the respect he deserves and the clout to do whatever he wants on TV or in film, not have to go back to Fox time and time again, only to have his shows canned halfway through a season or have a movie (Cabin in the Woods) that might never see the light of day.
1989 - "That Batman movie was pretty good. I wish we had more comic movies..."
2015 - "Aunt May is too young, Aquaman isn't blonde, Apocalypse looks purple, and ALL THESE ACTORS ARE TOO SHORT! HOW COULD THEY DO THIS TO MEEEEE?!?"
