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

It's not a healthy relationship for either party, lol. So with Avengers, it would be nice to see him find success with another studio for once.
I want this to be for Joss what Mission Impossible 3 was for JJ Abrams. My love for the both of them and the work they've done is equal, but I feel like where JJ has found further success on television and has elevated himself to the point where he's making films, Joss has been floundering. I want The Avengers to be a stepping stone for Joss, so he can tell the stories he wants to tell and actually get a little respect for once.

For one, I want to see the guy do more television. His original creations are always great, but I'd love to see him collaborate with Marvel on a TV project. *cough*X-Men*cough*

If your first TV love was Buffy, this season of The Magicians is the adult who looks like that first crush but is into your kink.
