The Rise and Fall of Joss Whedon

An article that I found quite sad.

https://theattic.jezebel.com/the-rise-and-fall-of-joss-whedon-and-the-myth-of-the-h-1846288271

Personally, I loved Firefly, Dollhouse, Avengers, and more from Whedon.

So sorry to see he's a jerk. Alas, much of this has been known for a while.

(Another reason I'm posting this is that he destroyed Justice League, and I'm still pissed about that. I think when Mr. Whedon sees the four-hour JL miniseries that Zack Snyder is creating for HBO, he will be rightfully humiliated!)

I like his product. I’m not here to save the world with my choices of entertainment.

I blame Warner Bros. He should have said no, but it is hard to say no to that amount of money. I am sorry, but I think some of what is going on is piling on him. I do blame him for the stupid quips said by Ultron that destroyed the tone of that move. The first scene with Ultron (puppets on a string) and the last with Vision (you know they are doomed) are marvelous.
