It’s no secret that I really, really like Joss Whedon and his work. And like most of his fans I’ve been a little worried about him recently. On the interview circuit for Avengers: Age of Ultron he seemed burned out by five years of intense work at Marvel and then beaten down by the lukewarm reaction to the film and a(n overblown) backlash at its depiction of women.
So it was quite reassuring to see this video of him speaking at the Oxford Union. He still sounds somewhat frazzled but he’s as articulate as ever and his sense of mischief seems intact. Plus he’s talking about new projects so yay for that!
