Artificial Continuum

Friday, July 23, 2010

One of the most exciting and informative panels at Comic Con's infamous Hall H yesterday was the JJ Abrams and Joss Whedon press conference. Together the two discussed not only film itself, but their upcoming projects in the internet as well as for the movie industry.

While Abrams mostly discussed his latest project Super 8, Whedon dropped several hints regarding some of his most anticipated projects. First off, the Firefly creator confirmed that he will indeed be directing the upcoming adaptation of the Avengers. He also offered a quick preview on why he took the job and his take on the storied comic book franchise. According to Whedon, what entices him to the project is the bizarre pairing the team presents. The director stresses that he wants to tell a story about why the team is together and about the "family" aspect that is a core feature of the comic series.

During the panel, Whedon also addressed questions about the upcoming Dr. Horrible sequel. He insisted that plans to create a follow up for the popular web based movie are still in existence, but are far from being realized at the moment. However, Whedon did mention that the general plot and several of the musical numbers have already been written.
