In advance of
Marvel’s The Avengers
being released, Joss Whedon held this AMA and also used it as an opportunity to raise money for Equality Now.
Filled with hardcore passion for his work, but also heartbreak at the many cancelled projects and “what could have been” questions.
Spiralarrow, who spent their one opportunity to ask Joss Whedon anything in the world to pose this thinker: “If cavemen and astronauts got into a fight, who would win?”
When asked about frequently killing his characters, Whedon replies “I actually find it refreshing… delightful…. vaguely arousing…. Actually, I’m, no offense, very tired of being labelled as 'the guy who kills people'. Shakespeare (he’s this hot new writer) does it way more than me, and everyone’s all excited about how he, as it were, holds a mirror up to nature, while I’m like the Jason Voorhees of the writing community. Unfair.”
