FILM NEWS: Joss Whedon is an absolute legend.

Rather than burdening BestforFilm or HeyUGuys with my rampant geek love for all things Joss Whedon (again), I have opted to relay to you (hello Florence!) just how superawesometastic he is right here, right now.

With The Avengers going before cameras today – as in this hallowed collection of 24 privileged hours (amen) – the deity himself felt the need to mark the occasion by posting on Whedonesque. Here’s what he had to say:

Film Greatness. On the Eve of Our Endeavor, I celebrate an american classic — or possibly all of them.

Hi Pumpkins, joss here.

Tomorrow we start shooting (I THINK I’m legally permitted to say that). Day one. That’s right. We’ll be shooting the pivotal death/betrayal/product placement/setting up the sequel/coming out scene, at the following address:

[Marvel Lawyers rush in, take Joss’s keyboard, blowtorch a picture of his family like in “Stormy Monday”, drink his milkshake, leave the seat up, fluff his pillows, violently unfluff his pillows, leave]

Went too far. My bad. Anyhoo, it should be a fun day, followed by the eighty thousand other fun days it will take to finish this. I’ll be checking in from time to time, if there’s news or I crave attention (i.e. am awake) . None of it will be Avengers news — I have some very denty pillows to remind of that — but I may have tidbits. (They’re not about Firefly. I should say that up front, if only to protect Sis Mo from the HATORZ.)

Some of you may be saying, Joss! Why this link, here, now, why, huh, howcum? My friend Allyx turned me on to these guys, and I’ll tell you, they’ve gotten me through this intensely pressurized, preply time. I strongly recommend checking out their other vids — I’ve watched them many many times, and I have a very special place for “Teamwork” in my heart. These guys are the guys. And IS there a better movie title than “Eagles Are Turning People Into Horses”? I thought not.

So wish me luck. DO IT! LUCK! NOW! I’m off to finish some Buffy pages, and then figure out what the movie is about already. I’m pretty sure it’s about the Justice League [Marvel Lawyers re-enter, unspeakability occurs] or possibly something else. I’ll get it. I’ve been looking forward to this. For about 46 years.



Oh yeah, writing!

I’m sorry, but why doesn’t this man have his own range of sat-navs, voice elevators and spend his days off directing traffic at your local post office? It really is a crime against one fifth of your senses.

So, there you have it: The Avengers have finally assembled. With 4 May, 2012, approaching steadily, we shouldn’t have to wait too long for more “news” from the master himself.

And what of the end of the world? Well that’s not until December.
