Joss Whedon will direct a sequel to the Avengers movie

It looks like Joss Whedon's decided to sign on for directing a sequel to the Avengers blockbuster after all. He'll be lucky if people let his anti-capitalist tirade slide by the time it's completed; that was really disrespectful of him to splutter like he did at the SDCC. Nevertheless, at least a few of the people who've commented on this news at Big Hollywood are concerned his personal politics might find their way into the next movie, unlike the first one where they were fortunately left on the cutting room floor (but what if they turned up in any foreign editions of the movie format in Europe?).

The news also informs that they've contracted Whedon to help develop a TV series based on Marvel products for the ABC network. As interesting as the potential for live action series based on Marvel books is, if anyone's worried about Whedon's politics seeping into anything he touches, it may be more legitimate to wonder if that could end up happening in on the series he'll work on more than the movies he's produced, if only because TV shows involve much more numerous stories than a movie that only features 1 basic tale, and it's always possible that either he or another writer who contributes teleplays will exploit it as a platform for leftism, not unlike the writers and producers of Smallville who did that, particularly in the latter half of its run.

Labels: , ,

Optimistic take: Maybe this will mean more Tim Minnear, whose libertarian leanings seem to have given Firefly its heart.

Probably not, but we can always hope, no?
