    Joss Whedon Has Already Released An Apology Video For Age of Ultron

    Around 20 minutes of the next Avengers will be filmed in South Korea, and the cooperation required by the city of Seoul is unprecedented. In anticipation of "the mess" he will make, Whedon has already released a classy video entitled "Thank You Greeting" to apologize for the inconvenience and promise the movie will be worth it.

    After angering the Internet by saying Firefly shouldn't come back for another season, we've decided to make Glen go back and watch the show. Here's the first of a series of weekly of recaps starting with episode one: "Serenity."

    Stop Whining about Ben Affleck Playing Batman, He is Perfect for the Part

    Friday was my day off, so I wasn't in the Geekosystem offices to yell at Victoria McNally about how wrong she is to hate Ben Affleck being cast as Batman. I believe in Ben Affleck, but more importantly, movies don't get cast by Internet opinion. Batfleck is happening, so you might as well get on board. Here's a moving speech to convince you.

    What Patton Oswalt Just Did on Twitter is Amazing

    The above tweet is funny. I promise you. Out of context it looks like comedian Patton Oswalt decided to go on an Orson Scott Card level rant, but instead what he did was actually brilliant. Yesterday Oswalt sent out a string of tweets that pushed the limits of the medium, proving why he's one of the best there is.

    Top Panels to Attend or Keep an Eye on at San Diego Comic-Con 2013

    After spending more time than is healthy perusing the entire schedule for San Diego Comic-Con, my initial response was to considering begging for a ticket to San Diego. I would tell you what I'd do for it, but putting that in writing might be illegal. Suffice it to say: The multitude of panels look so incredible, it is almost impossible to decide which you (assuming you are lucky enough to go!) ought to attend. Worry not, gentle reader: Below is the list of 50 events I would mainline caffeine, wear hideous athletic sneakers, and maybe work on that whole being-in-two-places-at-once-issue to attend, helpfully divided into categories of interest.

    Good News, Buffy Completists: Here’s 30 Minutes of Never-Before-Seen Footage

    Now that Buffy the Vampire Slayer has officially been off the air for a full decade, even the most die-hard fans have mostly given up hope of unearthing new information about the earlier years of Joss Whedon's slayer. But just today stunt coordinator Jeff Pruitt gave them a reason to keep hanging on: A full half-hour of behind-the-scenes footage of the show's cast and crew.

    Interviews With Much Ado About Nothing Cast Go Horribly Awry [Video]

    Did you go see Much Ado About Nothing yet? Yeah, I know, Shakespeare's not everybody's thing, but if you're a fan of Joss Whedon then you'll probably love seeing all your favorite actors hanging out with each other in a giant house full of alcohol. Even if you don't see it, you'll definitely appreciate the effort that Brian McElhaney and Nick Kocher of the comedy duo BriTANicK (who somehow managed to work their way into the cast despite not being in even one episode of Dollhouse) put into getting everyone together for a series of behind-the-scene "interviews." Expect to see them get cameo roles in Avengers 2 now, because Joss said so.

    Minneapolis Movie Theater Keeps Joss Whedon Humble With Deep Pull From His Resume

    Just a reminder that there is an alternate universe out there where those four episodes of Roseanne were the apogee of Joss Whedon's career.

    New S.H.I.E.L.D. Teaser Reveals Mystery Hologram and His Holographic Chair

    A new TV spot for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the show whose torturous-to-type title can't stifle our enthusiasm for it, aired last night during the NBA Finals. And now that the Internet has lost interest in speculating on the identity of the mysterious hooded hero played by Angel alum J. August Richards (he's apparently not Cage or Rage), we have a new contender for "most mysterious character who may turn out to not have a comics counterpart after all, making speculation pointless."

    Joss Whedon’s Uplifting Commencement Address Notes “You Are All Going to Die”

    Leave it to actual God of Death Joss Whedon to open his commencement speech to Wesleyan College with the phrase "You are all going to die." It gets more uplifting and inspirational from there, of course, as the writer/director of Avengers and Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame offers some clever words of wisdom to the most recent graduating class of his alma mater. Specifically he talks about the inherent contradictions that exist in being human, and how your identity as a person exists in those contradictions. He also pokes fun at Bill Cosby. It's an interesting speech.

    Quicksilver Cast in X-Men Movie, Internet Grapples With Intellectual Property Rights

    Today Bryan Singer announced on his Twitter that actor Evan Peters will be joining the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Quicksilver. Curious, considering that about a week ago Joss Whedon confirmed that Quicksilver is in the script for the upcoming Avengers 2, along with Scarlet Witch. So how exactly is this going to work?

    Joss Whedon Straight Up Confirms Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver for Avengers 2, Because Joss Whedon

    Hollywood and the film industry at large are notoriously wary of spilling the beans about, well, anything. They'd rather not confirm anything. Teasing up until the very last minute is more their style, as everyone that follows entertainment news is well aware. The further away from release, the more likely this kind of winking is to happen. These guidelines apparently do not apply to Joss Whedon.

    S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson became an audience favorite in The Avengers and the Marvel films leading up to it, and fans thought he was gone for good. There's been hope for a while now that Coulson would return in a S.H.I.E.L.D. television series, and that hope's paid off. ABC has officially picked up Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as a series. Coulson lives!

    Joss Whedon Hints at Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in Avengers 2

    Here I was thinking that red carpet Hollywood premieres and the like were boring affairs for those watching from home. The one for Iron Man 3, which was yesterday, has suddenly turned that all around for me. See, in an interview with Yahoo! Movies, Joss Whedon dropped a huge hint about the possible appearance of a certain brother and sister in Avengers 2. Yeah, he's pretty much definitely referring to Wanda and Pietro Maximoff -- Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.
