Joss Whedon not attending Comic-Con. Our king tweeted that he will be missing Comic-Con due to knee surgery.

We wish him a speedy recovery. He also mentions that tomorrow Marvel stars will dazzle. While he has a way better con, will he miss Conversations for a Cause? Nerd HQ still have him listed for tomorrow.

Nerd HQ will probably won't let their hopes and dreams be dashed. He doesn't look like he's going anywhere. Nor should he.

Get better soon Joss!
Would explain why he was using a walking stick at the Guardians of the Galaxy premiere. Hope he has a speedy recovery.
:( That sucks for both the fans and the Joss man. He always seems excited to visit the con every year as a fan himself.
I've had knee surgery (well, 2 replacements)
aaaand he isn't going anywhere for a bit.
My uncle is having knee surgery(a knee replacement specifically)in a few weeks.

Hope for a speedy recovery for Joss.
Do you think this will effect the filming for A2? A small delay?
If all the actors are at Comic-Con, it's probably the best time to have surgery. Also what filter is Joss using on that pic?
Joss used to be a writer, until he took an arrow to the knee. :P
Simon, thanks for that thought. I was afraid that it was emergency surgery. And of course this is not the first time he has had a knee operated on.
Yeah that filter was so strange I couldn't tell if it was real or some sort of joke, at first. They're back to filming after Comic-Con, right? Sounds like the best possible timing in a not great situation. Heal well, Joss.
Get well soon, Mr. Whedon.
Sad he needed surgery, glad he had it since he needed it, don't feel so bad about missing Comic-Con now.
Simon, my first thought was zombie filter... but knowing Jossman it could be reaver........ and now i want one.

Crazy thought, Zach usually is on top of his panel guests (even got Tom H to admit his secret mission last year) so maybe he didn't remove/replace Joss' slot because he has back ups..... like uber super heros? *throws it into the pool*
Ahhh, the joys of upper middle-age! We are such frail creatures! Joss does not look amused.
Oh yes, the knees. The most fragile joint in the body. When I was recovering from an ACL replacement twenty years ago, the physical therapists' department had a wonderful cartoon on their wall, showing a mini-sized death figure with the robe and hood and scythe, and the caption "I have come for your knees."

Joss if you're reading this, I'm sorry you're hurting. I know that whatever kind of knee injury your's is, the recovery period is going to make work more difficult for you. I hope you are at least cheered knowing that the well wishes of hundreds of thousands of fans are with you, wishing you a speedy recovery.
Well, depending on when Joss is getting carved open, Skype chat is an option...possibly? Maybe? Or he could have been brought to and from panels in a sedan chair, like rules of old!


Still, a wish for a speedy recovery to Joss! My dad's had to have waaaayyy too many knee surgeries and I know all too well the fun of recovery and rehabilitation....
He should get a new knee from Stark Industries. It'd be awesome and sarcastic.
Re: stars dazzling, here's some interviews to keep us folks not living it up in comic-con occupied:

Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr. talk about their characters' close relationship (has somewhat spoiler hints because, well, RDJ). Video .

James Spader joins costars Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans. (if you don't want to hear Spader speak about Ultron's world view and motives, then don't click - on the other-hand, that voice... man. He's not even trying to be intimidating) . Video .

Jeremy Renner, Cobie Smulders and Samuel L. Jackson (kinda spoilerish because SLJ lets something slip about Fury). Video .

Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Video .

Paul Bettany. Video .
It's difficult to type because I'm grinning so hard - IT's PAUL BETTANY and he's tots Whedonesque now. *twirls* Aw, they made him feel welcome. Not that I'm surprised with this awesome cast.

p.s. mods - I didn't know if this should be in a new post - or fine here in the comments. Let me know, and I will make a new post.
I'm so sorry to hear this. He seems to enjoy the con so much.
Mirage - if you want to put that all in one new post, that would be fine.
