Whedon may not have written many comics lately. And I don't think he's involved with the Avengers movies now either. But he did recently let know where he stands
on Britain's famous TV sci-fi adventure, Doctor Who, and hinted he's got no issues with where Marvel's taking their own universe:
Not taking the hint from Ghostbusters that social justice doesn't sell, Whedon made his comments during a Nerd HQ forum after a young fan asked him if he'd ever helm the director's chair for one of Britain's most iconic television character.
"I’m not sure, and here’s why. I’d have to do a lot of research, like, watch 40 years of television. I mean I’ve seen some of it, but let’s get real… Check back with me when the Doctor is a she. Or Idris Elba. Every question can actually just have the suffix ‘or Idris Elba," Whedon said, prompting applause.
British actor Idris Elba has been in the running to replace James Bond, which would make him the first black man to play the iconic MI6 agent. During this year's #OscarsSoWhite controversy, Elba walked in lockstep with social justice warriors when he lectured British parliament about the values of (left-wing) diversity and its need in the entertainment industry.
I think it's safe to say he's not the least bit bothered at Marvel's own drastic changes to their universe, all at the expense of enjoyable storytelling. He just drank the SJW Kool-Aid idiocy. And he doesn't ponder that many of the people he's supposedly trying to please aren't interested in reading based on the racial/gender/sexually oriented background ascribed to the cast. Honestly, what's so great about Whedon? He's way overrated. He doesn't even seem to realize that it's not like he has to research each and every detail from over 50 years of TV to know what Doctor Who is about; just the basic premise is enough. What he said is just another way of telling his audience he doesn't care for the product. Not even if it represented his apparent PC positions. So what was the use of commenting on the famous British sci-fi series at the panel he attended?
