Anyone who scans the daily geek-news knows that Joss Whedon positively loves to talk about his projects. As a consequence, people love to interview him and pretty much every word he speaks in the presence of another human being is recorded and placed within the vastness of the Internet. Here’s a little more of what Whedon has to say about why Wonder Woman projects seem to be cursed, as well as his thoughts on possibly returning some already used characters to the S.H.I.E.L.D. television show.
When asked about the last incarnation of Wonder Woman (courtesy WB and David E. Kelley) and why it tanked:
I don’t think that was a match. I just don’t. I don’t think that he needs to write about superheroes. You need to need to write about superheroes to write about superheroes. If that’s not in your vernacular, you may bring something new and interesting to it, but at the end of the day, if you don’t have that burning desire to talk about these people who have these insane powers, then some other agenda is going to come forward and you might accidentally turn off the dark.
And when asked about whether Lizzy Kaplan and Jesse Bradford will make their way to the new S.H.I.E.L.D. production because of their appearance in Item 47, a short film slotted to be included on The Avengers Blu-ray:
I honestly do not think they are available because I think she is on another show. We’re building it with a new group of people. They were great and that had a lot to do with why we are making the show, but we are starting fresh.
So there you have it, the latest words of Joss Whedon. Listen, worship, obey and, most importantly, watch his television shows! Next week, Joss Whedon expresses him opinions on the viability of 1-ply vs. 2-ply toilet paper.
