Whedon Sits Down to Chat: "Firefly", Much Ado, Man of Steel, and More.

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Videos | June 24, 2013 | Comments ()


Have you had your daily Whedon? You really should. The best time for Whedon is with your morning coffee in order to encourage day-long intestinal harmony.

So Herr Joss sat down with Total Film for a fifteen minute interview, which is interesting mostly from the point of view that Whedon says interesting things, not so much because he drops some breaking news. Though when prompted for one fact about Avengers 2 that no one knows yet, he does say that the entire film is written in iambic pentameter, and thus is taking a very long time to finish.

I hate it when interviewers ask that question, it's the pinnacle of laziness. Think of something original to ask. The White House Press Corps might get a lot of flack for being atrocious journalists in many ways, but at least you never see one of them at a press conference frantically waving their hand, getting called on, and then asking with all seriousness: "President Obama, on the matter of peace in the Middle East, could you tell us something we don't know?"

Anyway, the video is entertaining for its Whedonness, and annoying for the music playing too loudly in the background on a thirty second loop. I'm not selling this very well. How about this: Whedon says that he wanted to do a "Firefly" episode with an interstellar traveling Shakespeare group composed of Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, and James Marsters.

Oh there's your wavering attention come back to roost. Tell me something I don't know.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    To continue the trend of not commenting much on what he said (which is a valid choice, considering the non-eventfulness of the interview), i'd like to add that i was somewhat distracted by the moustache-part of his beard. I'm not sure what was going on there.

    I do love to hear him talk. Especially on commentary tracks. There are a few eps i might have watched more often WITH his commentary than without.

  • I'm surprised he even slightly questioned putting Amy Acker on camera. She should never not be on tv or film.

  • Ruby Rose

    I don't know if I think she's a great actress, but I think she is utterly captivating on screen. I understand what he means about that 'feeling', because I think she has wonderful screen presence. She's wonderful to watch.

    That picture was one of the most timelessly beautiful things ever. If you disagree, STFU you're stupid.

  • Dave Dorris

    Seriously, it's stunning.

  • Subversable

    Listen to that mutated accent. How much time has Joss been spending in England?

  • koko temur

    jesus, i didnt even hear the music, i was that mesmerised by his awesomness and that perfectly shaped head. do you think its why he is as amazing writer? Its aerodynamic on the inside too?

  • csb

    It sounds like they added the background music to try to hide some audio problems from the original recording.

    Joss Whedon has this effect on my brain wherein said brain (which is usually rather twitchy and Touretted) feels like it's been tucked into bed under a blanket of kittens.

    Am I the only one who initially pictured a blanket made out of kittens?

  • Dave Dorris

    How else was there to picture it?
