Description

Providing a career-spanning view of everyone’s favorite geek writer and director, Joss Whedon FAQ offers answers to fans’ questions about one of the most significant pop culture auteurs of the past twenty-five years.

The book gazes at Whedon’s early work in Hollywood as a script doctor on films such The Quick and the Dead (1995) and Waterworld (1995), and follows his career as he became the cult-favorite creator of such sensations as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, and Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.

In addition to looking at Whedon’s ascent to blockbuster superhero filmmaking with titles such as The Avengers, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Justice League, this eminently readable compendium explores Whedon’s lesser known but no less fascinating forays into the world of Shakespeare (Much Ado About Nothing) and even big-screen romantic fantasy (In Your Eyes).

The book closes with discussions of Whedon’s politics and feminism, as well as a catalogue of his (unofficial) repertory company and a list of the most memorable on-screen character deaths in his canon.
