Default Re: Disney/Marvel & ABC working on Avengers spin-off tv show?

Yeah its strange that despite Whedon's affinity for female leads, his male castmembers tend to be the more talented actors. SMG, Dushku, Willow, Charisma, Darla, Baccarin (she got better btw), Kayley, none of them are much above average talent-wise or "presence"-wise. It worked because of the writing and because, in some cases, the characters werent a huge stretch from the actors personas.

The male actors, maybe because many were older than the girls, tended to be of a higher caliber. Of course many of the recurring male roles were played by seasoned character actors so I guess it makes sense that they would be more impressive.

To be fair, the only male actors who have gone on to bigger and better things are Boreanaz and Fillion, and Fillion barely counts. Baccarin, because shes so damn striking physically, and because shes improved a bit, probably will have a good career playing SO's in tv and non-tentpole movies.
