Default Re: Disney/Marvel & ABC working on Avengers spin-off tv show? - Part 1

It would be a real disappointment if the Whedons brought in Dushku for any role. Or Glau, for that matter. Those two have had years of chances from producers who have tried to make them into lead actresses on a variety of shows. It hasn't worked, primarily because both of them are boring and not exactly great actresses. (Nothing would have improved Dollhouse but the choice of Dushku guaranteed that the acting would be mediocre.)

They have cast fresh faces for SHIELD thus far and should continue to do so. Hollywood is overflowing with talented actresses who could handle roles on the show; there's no need to go back to the same old, same old.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
