I’m happy for Joss Whedon, after hearing the announcement he’ll write and direct Avengers 2. I like to see a geek inherit the Earth.
But I worry about the franchise in general. Whedon has a tendency to make his villains too comfortable around the heroes. Considering he worked with vampires so long, I’m surprised how quickly he removes his villains’ teeth and makes them just ordinary guys and gals. Perhaps he just likes villains better, like Dr. Horrible. But I’m afraid that, in Avengers 2, Loki will be joining the heroes for a shawarma dinner.
Which one is better?
|In the beginning…||Later on…|
|Spike from Buffy||Dangerous. You never knew what side he was on.||Just kind of hung around because he had nothing else to do.|
|Danger from X-Men||Living embodiment of the Danger Room. Coolest and most deadly new villain in the mutant titles.||Just kind of hung around and poked fun of the heroes because she had nothing else to do.|
“The Avengers” fixed the problems of the Marvel prequels
