With the Avengers tearing it up at the box office I am prompted to pay homage to the genius behind the action blockbuster of the summer.
Joss Whedon has long been a cult favorite, from his creation of a certain cheerleader who moonlights as a vampire slayer, to his amazing futuristic weird western, he has always flown a bit below the radar. Now with the Avengers kickin' butt and takin' names at the box office perhaps this under-appreciated auteur will finally make the A-list!
Long time fans of Whedon have always appreciated his witty and oddball brand of humor. Smart, fast paced, filled with in-jokes that are said with a certain wry flair are some of his trademarks.
