The Avengers director and onetime comics writer hasn't just brought his ultra-leftism to the fore yet again. The star cast of the movie itself have joined him in a political advertisement
Writer-director Joss Whedon has assembled his Avengers cast — and a bevy of other Hollywoods stars — for an anti-Donald Trump campaign ad released Wednesday timed to the launch of his Save the Day PAC, which encourages Americans to vote on Election Day.
Titled “Important,” the ad features Avengers stars Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Don Cheadle as well as Julianne Moore, Jesse Williams, Neil Patrick Harris, Keegan-Michael Key, James Franco, Cobie Smulders, Stanley Tucci, Rosie Perez, Yvette Nicole Brown, Martin Sheen and Leslie Odom Jr., among others.
“You might think it’s not important. You might think you’re not important,” Ruffalo says in the three-minute clip, before Key adds, “but that’s not true.”
“And the only way we can prove that to you is by having lots of famous people” appear in the video, Downey Jr. jokes.
“A sh*t-ton of famous people,” Moore adds.
I don't think any of the actors from the Avengers movie are important after reading this, nor the director. I do think they're embarrassing whatever legacy the film might have by yammering away with more leftism and declaring all conservatives inherently evil while obscuring all the pressing issues we face today. Whedon's decidedly a joke, and no matter the quality of his past TV shows, he'll be remembered in history as a blabbermouth who doesn't know when it pays to remain neutral. The same goes for the Avengers film cast, who IMO haven't done the franchise any favors.
