The Buffy film is still Whedon's artistic work, whether or not he wants to disown it. As is the case with the wretched Alien Resurrection
. It's understandable that Whedon wouldn't want to take the blame for those massive failures, but he got sole writing credits for both the Buffy film and AR, which makes him responsible for those scripts. And then there's Dollhouse
. Even allowing for the subjective nature of judgments about quality, claiming that it was better than The Avengers
is laughable on its face.
Would you say that The Avengers
is weaker than Alien Ressurection
? Or are you pulling the "Whedon didn't like it/the network interfered so it isn't his work" card for those ones, too?
