    If its an origin story , yeah for sure someone like manu would be great. If its after ROTJ then maybe some one else can grab the armor. I would like to see Obi Wan in the movie, beign hunted by Boba by Vaders orders and Cad Bane still giving a hand until Boba has enough of him and makes himself the best there is

    Wow talking about Wheadon earlier he is not directing a SW movie anytime soon thankfully. He is putting his foot in his mouth in every new interview. Someone has to tell him to shut up already and stop throwing blame around except to himself. I always thought he was an hypocrite and this stuff is confirming my suspicious.

    Lets hope for a better director, Maybe if warcraft is great Duncan Jones can direct a movie

    Films like the Man with No Name trilogy did something like this, hell, a lot of old school films pulled this type of protagonist off all the time, all it realy takes is an interesting plot and a smart Director.

    Of course they aren't perfect, they like making money but they are your bosses, at least you should act professionally and just cash the check and move on, no need to be an egotistical *****e and throw blame around. Wheadon is the definition of overrated character in hollywood, hopefully he goes back to smaller movies and his own stuff

    Right, but how is that unprofessional? In the context of the interview he basically said he understood why the changes were necessary from a business standpoint and with the broader universe in view.

    Yeah, the Dollars trilogy is what they should be taking inspiration from.

    Joss hardly has the typical job, and in this case I don't think it was meant in a derogatory way.

    I have no objection to Whedon doing an Anthology movie. Variety is the spice of life. But, he is wrong for a Boba Fett movie.

    I'm not going to lie, the way the fandom has turned on Whedon is hilarious. How many times have I gotten rabid looks when I have mentioned that I don't exactly like him as a director (great writer and showrunner)? I guess Feige is the true fanboy god.

    To tell the truth i was never a big fan of him to begin with, never saw buffy or angel, saw some Firefly and it was good in some places but in others pretty weak, but i dont think it deserved such a quick cancellation. He actually wrote a treatment for toy story so that is to be appreciated, even though who knows what was it about. Then the whole Alien fiasco was just horrible.

    When Marvel picked him up he wasn't the hottest thing in town and they got him cheap, and he knows this and shouldn't talk about salaries or that he made more money in smaller projects. You took the job willingly so no need to criticize the bosses like that. And then all this latest statements , i don't know why he is throwing them around, you are just getting a bad name in town when you aren't really THAT accomplished as a director. Besides his avengers movies and firefly he doesn't have much more to show off. Hopefully he keeps his mouth shut from now on.

    And Feige is not untouchable, most of Marvels movies before Avengers are nothing to be that proud of, and TIH is almost as if it didnt exist. IM3 is for me wasnt good either and Thor 2 even less. I think GUardians and Cap2 are they best movies by far, but except for avengers and the first iron man movie, the other flicks were in the ok range, or even less for my taste. So no Marvel isnt blameless or without critic.

    Anyway Star Wars forum, no Joss Wheadon is star wars please, i dont think he is much of a team player

    He has Buffy, which is one of the most influential and iconic shows of the past years, it's even been studied some times. I find it odd how most posters here only remember Firefly from Joss, Buffy was easily his most accomplished original work.

    It does seem like to many people, Marvel can do no wrong. They are always in the right and if there's problems, then it is always the director's fault. Personally, I like that Whedon is giving his honest opinion and not kissing ass like a corporate stooge, it's refreshing. Oh and given how many director's Marvel has gone through, and some of the issues with multiple actor, maybe just maybe the problem is on THEIR end.

    Whedon made one of the most successful CBM's of all time, and another one that's also been a big success. And yet fans have turned on him laughably fast, truly they are a fickle/spoiled bunch.

    Anyway Whedon directing a SW film, sure. Whedon directing a Boba Fett movie, eh I'm not so sure.
