(SPOILER) X-Men: The Last Stand out in US cinemas today. Given the movie's history, it seems fitting that there's Joss references in the reviews. The Washington Post said the movie is "Buffy... with car crashes". And what of one of the movie's key plot points which came from Astonishing X-Men? Well some reviews refer to it as being "somewhat inspired", "based loosely", "pulled from" or quite simply "swiped" from the comic book. Given all that, one reviewer ponders "wouldn't Whedon have been the perfect director for this?".
Remember all the speculation about Joss directing this movie? Only seems like we were talking about it yesterday.
Anyhow if you missed it first time round, head over to the SFX website where Joss talks about the use of his plotline, his ideas for the movie and his hopes for the third X-Men movie.
