Fact: AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON writer/director Joss Whedon quit Twitter.com on Monday (04May15), just days after the superhero movie's release in the U.S. He gave no warning or reason for the deletion, but reports suggest he received a barrage of criticism over the sequel.
Tweet: "Affleck'll crush it. He's got the chops, he's got the chin - just needs the material. Affleck & Cavill toe to toe - I'm in." Director Joss Whedon tweets his support for Ben Affleck after he was cast as Batman in the upcoming Man Of Steel sequel. Comic book fans have launched an online petition to get Affleck ousted from the role.
Quote: "It was supposed to be, like, a throwaway, and she did it like she was King Lear. I was trying to explain what I had written versus the actor who played it. But all people remember is you're the one who wrote that terrible line." Writer/filmmaker Joss Whedon is still sore about the way Halle Berry delivered one of his lines as Storm in The X-Men.
Quote: "It bothers me. I think it gives people an impression of who you are that is not one I'm comfortable with... I do feel like it indicates a certain removal from reality that I hope to avoid." Writer/director Joss Whedon on why he went online to refute claims he was being paid $100 million (£66.7 million) to making The Avengers sequel.
Quote: "I think weed is a fine thing... (but) I don't use it socially because it does not improve my socialising skills. And I never, ever smoke unless it's the last thing I do that day because there's a long period of stupid that comes after it that's pretty useless. You don't need it, but every now and then it takes you to a different place." Writer/filmmaker Joss Whedon occasionally experiments with marijuana to advance movie and Tv ideas.
Quote: "You're all going to die. You have, in fact, already begun to die. You look great. You are youth and beauty, the physical peak. Your bodies have just gotten off the ski slope on the peak of growth and potential. And now comes the Black Diamond mobile run to the grave." Filmmaker Joss Whedon brought a little grim reality to proceedings as he addressed students at Wesleyan University's graduation ceremony on Sunday (26May13).
Fact: The Avengers director Joss Whedon is stepping in front of the camera to star in his longtime collaborator's new online sitcom. The filmmaker will appear in all three new episodes of Husbands, a web series revolving around Brady, the first openly gay Major League Baseball star, played by Sean Hemeon. The show will air online in August (12).
Quote: "For me, Wonder Woman was basically Angelina Jolie. She spends a lot of time flying around. She works in a lot of different countries. She's very global. And she's appalled by the way people treat each other." Moviemaker Joss Whedon on his ideal Wonder Woman. The Buffy The Vampire Slayer creator's script for a re-imagining of the comic book superheroine was scrapped by Warner Bros. bosses.
Quote: "I had to do a naked scene in the desert and they put a little mitten on you. I asked for a photo of Joss and cut out his head and put it on my mitten." Actor Nathan Fillion still laughs about the pranks he played on director Joss Whedon while filming cult U.S. TV series FIREFLY.
