Whedon has a ridiculous amount of nerd cred and rightfully so, but is he the right choice for this flick? It’s sort of a big deal considering the fact that the Hulk, Iron Man, Thor and Captain America films are all preludes to this one. I think Whedon did a fine job with Serenity, which I loved and I was a huge fan of Buffy in its heyday, but this is a big deal for the studio and fans alike. Would it be blasphemous for me to say that he should take the reins on one of the X-Men films before taking on this beast of a project? He had an amazing run with Astonishing. Update: Turns out Whedon is rewriting the script for Avengers, so all is right in the world. Hopefully.
