What will Joss Whedon do with the Avengers?

Posted by LiveFor on April 24, 2010

I love this comic strip from HijiNKS ENSUE. Funny with a lot of truth in it.

I am still excited that Joss Whedon will be at the helm of The Avengers movie and also having a crack at polishing the script – more here.

I do wonder what Whedonesque things we will see in the film. What actors that pope up in many of this films will show up in The Avengers and what characters will they play?

A lot of possibility here and hopefully Whedon will get a chance to really shine.

Talk it up in the comments about what you want to see Whedon do in The Avengers film.

Now if I could only figure out a Firefly / Avengers crossover.

Serenity – Wash gets his own back in funny Web Comic

Posted by LiveFor on April 20, 2010

I love it. Sorry for any potential spoilers you may infer from this cool web comic, but I had to share it. Cartoonist Mike Russell, writer Mark Bourne and inker/colorist Bill Mudron are responsible for this take on Joss Whedon’s Firefly feature film Serenity.

I still really miss Firefly. Still mad that Zac Efron played a young Simon Tam in the series (check out the video below).

Christina Hendricks on the cover of Esquire

Posted by LiveFor on April 19, 2010

Why another photo of Christina Hendricks? Well she has been good to Live for Films and has consistently been in the top posts of all time on the site so I know a lot of you out there dig her. Plus she was in Firefly.

Here is a little of what she has to say:

We want you to order Scotch. It’s the most impressive drink order. It’s classic. It’s sexy. Such a rich color. The glass, the smell. It’s not watered down with fruit juice. It’s Scotch. And you ordered it.

Stand up, open a door, offer a jacket. We talk about it with our friends after you do it. We say, “Can you believe he stood up when I approached the table?” It makes us feel important. And it makes you important because we talk about it.

Panties is a wonderful word. When did you stop saying “panties”? It’s sexy. It’s girlie. It’s naughty. Say it more.

You can check out the Mad Men star’s Letter to Men over at the Esquire site. I still think she would make a great Power Girl.

UPDATED: The Avengers – Joss Whedon is hours away from directing it

Posted by LiveFor on April 13, 2010

Great news for fans of Joss Whedon (oh Firefly!) but a rumour from a few weeks ago that said he was in the running to direct The Avengers for Marvel Studios could well be true.

Deadline (who are usually spot on with these things) have the news that Joss Whedon is in final negotiations to direct The Avengers.

That means he would be in control of Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), as well as SHIELD leader Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and whoever else they decide to include – possibly the Hulk, the Wasp, Hawkeye.

After Iron Man 2, Marvel has three pictures left on a distribution deal with Paramount before it moves to Disney, and the studio has been churning them out. Iron Man 2 gets released in May, Captain America will begin shooting this summer in Europe, Thor is in production, and Marvel Studios just set Pete Sollett to direct Runaways, based on the comic book series created by Lost writer Brian K. Vaughan. Whedon also wrote for that last one along with Astonishing X-Men so he knows how these things work.

True, Serenity is his only feature film, but all of his shows involve an ensemble cast of people with various abilities so his transition to directing the team of Avengers should work quite well.

I really think he is an excellent choice for the film although it is still not set in stone. Do you agree that Whedon is the one to direct the Avengers or is it a terrible choice? Who else should they have on the team?

The Avengers is due out in May 2012.

UPDATE: Variety have picked up on the news that Whedon is in final negotiations to direct and if it does go ahead he will also rework the screenplay by screenwriter Zak Penn.

It will be nice if this all happens. Now another question – if he could bring in some of his crew what characters would you like to see the following play?

Nathan Fillion – Neil Patrick Harris – Charisma Carpenter – Felicia Day – Summer Glau

Gorram! Browncoats rejoice. Fan made Firefly spin-off looks cool

Posted by LiveFor on February 12, 2010

I miss Firefly. A show killed well before its time. Sure Serenity was great, but I wanted to see Mal Reynolds, Wash, and the rest of the crew have many adventures in the ‘Verse created by Joss Whedon.

Although not the same crew Browncoats can get their Firefly fix in a new HD web series scifi western called Courage. All about a ship and it’s crew running from a totalitarian government while spreading hope and courage to a rising rebellious voice.

It stars Philip Delorenzo, Aimee Binford, John Branch, Justin Rister, Alyssa Roehrenbeck, and Daniel Wolf.

Check out the trailer and let me know what you think. Shiny!

Check out the official site for more photos of the crew and you can also buy a Courage T-shirt over there.

At the recent Directors Guild of America Awards Kathryn Bigelow won Best Director for The Hurt Locker over her ex James Cameron’s Avatar.
