Default Joss Whedon Reportedly the top contender for IX

http://makingstarwars.net/2015/05/jo...re-kicking-up/

Apparently sources are reporting he's the top choice and the skeptical Jason from makingstarwars said his sources are saying Whedon as the helmer is "...very possible". Given we already know of Rian Johnson's attachment to Episode VIII and Josh Trank had been announced for Anthology 2, it's likely we'll get an Episode IX announcement in the near future.

Now in my opinion Whedon would is an unexciting choice. I was a bit underwhelmed by AoU, but even after Avengers came out he still wasn't my first choice. Personally I'd be much more excited to see Matthew Vaughn's name attached. Needless to say Whedon is a very talented director and would not be a bad choice by any stretch- especially for a film with a Return of the Jedi style tone.

No thanks. I'd rather him not touch Star Wars.

I thought Rian Johnson was doing one of these movies? Or was that just a rumor?

He's not the worst choice, but I would prefer someone else.

1. Bird
2. Vaughn
3. JJ

These are my top choices for IX. Whedon is great at spectacle but for an episode I don't see the fit.

Maybe an anthology movie. One that requires smugglers, bounty hunters and Star ships blasting one another.

The problem with Vaughn is that I'm not a fan of how his movies look. They are usually look kinda flat looking.

I hate Whedon so no. Firefly and Serenity were awful flops. He had his chance with sci fi and failed.

I hope it's not true. Give him a spin off film, like the Boba Fett one. But not one of the episodes...

Whedon's style is too signature. Not sure it would mesh with what JJ and Rian will accomplish. JJ seems mature enough to sacrifice his personal touches (ex. Exaggerated lens flares) for the greater good of the movie. Not sure Whedon would do the same.

Ps. I loved Firefly, Serenity, and both Avengers films.
