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