Joss Whedon’s projects on TV always gets bad breaks. Almost all of them have been cancelled or scrapped by TV execs. The latest casualty of this spate of bad luck is Dollhouse, which starred Eliza Dushku. It’s a shame really because Whedon is a true maverick and one of the most exciting talents working on TV and Film today. In a perfect world, he should be right up there with JJ Abrams as celebrated wunderkinds.
It’s a good thing that Whedon is not lacking in offers. Word is that he has been chosen as the director for The Avengers. He was initially rumored to be in the short list for directors but it looks like he’s got it in the bag. The movie is expected to be released on May 4, 2012.
I’m pretty sure Whedon is going to have a lot of fun directing this movie and he’s going to bring all he’s got in order to make the fans happy.
