Joss Whedon Q&A at Deadline.com. Lots and lots of good stuff to be had here. Much Ado About Nothing, The Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D., Dr. Horrible, The Hulk, Wonder Woman and much, much more get covered.

"I always order the entire left side of the menu and then wonder why Iím full."


I love this man.

"Itís doubtful that in the time I have before I make Avengers 2 Iíll have time to do anything besides make Avengers 2, because I want it to be better than Avengers."


I'm going to go to my happy place and choose to believe that this is classic Joss misdirection and he's secretly making Dr. Horrible 2 now.
I look at it this way - Avengers 2 is due out in a little over two years. Before then, we've got Much Ado, In Your Eyes and S.H.I.E.L.D. if that gets picked up. Plus more Buffy/Angel comics etc. So we're not going to be exactly Joss-starved over the next couple of years. It's a good time.
Yes, there was a real dry spell after Angel ended while he was toiling away on Wonder Woman and all of that. This ain't nothin' compared to that. Three movies and a TV show (possibly) within the next 2.5 years? I can handle that!
I'm definitely thinking that SHIELD will tide me over, I noticed that Joss only said that Hulk would be too expensive (Mark plus massive CGI equals big budget), but I'll bet Bruce Banner could peek in, or any of the other Avengers. But even without cameos that TV show should really give us all a lot to celebrate and discuss!
The TV (hopefully) series is really a whole new world of *Whedon character creations and universe building. I'm excited.
Heaven for me would be on-line passion projects like Wastelanders and Dr Horrible or Bellwether indies that Joss wrote and/or directed. If SHIELD gets picked up, there will be "Whedon character creations anduniverse building", sure,but it's still from a Marvel template, and it sounds like Joss will be contributing occasional stories, not directing or showrunning. I have no doubt I'll enjoy what he does, When have I not? But looks like I can't get to heaven until 2015. Sigh.
I think we've put together another really great ensemble headed by Clark


I knew he was in the pilot but this sounds as though he is in the whole series. Did I just miss that?
Lioness you just missed it. It's been mentioned since the beginning Coulson would be the centerpiece of the series. Here's a recap.
Thanks. I tend to err on the side of not enough info to be sure I don't have too much!
Well it is true that Coulson being a primary (THE primary) character of SHIELD is a major spoiler because of the way things were left in Avengers. But it is also a spoiler that is almost unavoidable since he will undoubtedly be featured in any and all promotion for SHIELD (assuming the show is picked up).
