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.
I can't wait until the day Matthew McConaughey is cast in a CBM. All of a sudden, everyone will just forget the Oscar he just won and the good **** he's done recently, and start screaming at the top of their lungs about them casting the guy from "Failure to Launch". Are you happy now, Libido?
