Joss Whedon Is Totally Selling Out by Making Yet Another Contemporary Remake

After making the third most successful film in the history of the North American box-office, what is Joss Whedon doing with his Hollywood capitol? Is he blowing it all on hookers, blow, and pre-production costs for lame, mainstream family films like a respectable filmmaker? No. He's frittering away literally HUNDREDS of pennies on a micro-budget remake of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing that he threw together with two weeks' worth of filming. At least he has the sense to work on a remake, and it's a contemporary setting! Contemporary remakes are like box-office gold!

... wait, what? He's using Shakespeare's original language? Huh? But he's going to throw in some hip-hop raps or something, right? Maybe a cute monkey? How does he expect to make money on this? Surely, he's at least brought in most of The Avengers cast, right? Clark Gregg, that's it? He's not even the famous one. Who else is in this? Alexis Denisof, Amy Acker, Nathan Fillion, Sean Maher, and Riki Lindholme? What? All their movies combined have probably only made a tenth of what The Avengers made. What's going on here? Why isn't Joss Whedon selling out? Is he messing with our minds? He's screwing up the whole paradigm!

Here's some images. The black-and-white ones are new (from FilmStage) and the color ones are old, from EW.
