Joss Whedon on 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' Female Superheroes and More

"Avengers" director, Marvel consultant and ultimate geek icon Joss Whedon recently had an extended red carpet chat with the folks over at Collider and he revealed a startling secret: He initially thought making a "Guardians of the Galaxy" movie was a pretty bad idea.

"It seemed out there to me," Whedon said. "I sort of went, 'I don't know about this.'"

So what changed his mind? Two words: Rocket Raccoon. Get More »

It can happen to you! It really, really can!

"Much Ado About Nothing" star Jillian Morgese is now living proof that a young, burgeoning actress can totally be discovered in some random cafe one day, as they sometimes say.

Of course, in her case, it was during extras filming for a cafe scene in "The Avengers" which earned her top billing — albeit in indie price-age — for Joss Whedon's latest film.

As detailed by BuzzFeed, Morgese served as a simple scene extra on Whedon's big superhero actioner, instructed simply to "look back at the destruction and give up on [her] life." Get More »

Herefore Art Thou Joss Whedon's 'Much Ado About Nothing' Trailer

"The course of true love never did run smooth."

No, those aren't R. Kelly lyrics — that be Shakespeare, fool! Joss Whedon shot his new black & white filmic version of the Bard's "Much Ado About Nothing" at his own (admittedly luxurious) house in Santa Monica, and even though the couplets are the same the feeling in the new trailer (via Yahoo! Movies) is very contemporary… and very Joss. Get More »

As much as we love all that summer has to offer, fall is where it's at for true cinephiles. The movie lover's season officially kicks off (according to us, anyway) the same day the annual Toronto International Festival launches every year in early September.

As has been the case for several years now, Toronto serves as a platform for studios to launch their Oscar hopefuls and for smaller indies to find a home (and maybe some awards down the line). "The King's Speech," "Slumdog Millionaire," "Precious" and "The Artist" all played at the festival before going on to Oscar glory while films like "Beginners," "Killer Joe" and "Your Sister's Sister," all came into the event without a distributor, and left with one.

If you can't say it by tweeting maybe you shouldn't say anything at all. It seems more and more the Hollywood A-list is making its victories, challenges and catfights public through the highly followed site.

The latest star to tweet his big news is none other than writer/ director/ producer extraordinaire Joss Whedon. Bellwether Pictures tweeted that Whedon has just wrapped "Much Ado About Nothing," a movie he'd been filming completely in secret. That's quite an achievement. The Kardashians can't even get a haircut without the whole world knowing. Get More »
