Whedon explained, “My heart was on the table. I was so into it. And I could tell the executive I was talking to was just completely thinking about their schedule and their window and it was like I was talking to a wall. It was a different language.”
He added, “I drove away from the meeting and I actually said to myself like, how much more indication do I need that the machine doesn’t care?” And as if that was not bad enough, that very same day Joss learnt that his movie Firefly had also been cancelled.
Joss continued, “I got back to work and they cancelled Firefly. And I was like ‘it was rhetorical! I wasn’t asking for more!’”. However, it has not all been bad news for Joss Whedon, as he is set to release his Marvel movie The Avengers in a few weeks time.
Do you think Joss Whedon would have done as good a job on Batman as Christopher Nolan?
