It's time for the results of last times poll and the new question.
There were two pieces of Joss Whedon writing news recently. On the one hand, last week there were rumors the network told Whedon to rewrite scripts for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. because they were "so bad." But, this week we found out Whedon was flown in to help rewrite scenes for Thor 2 by co-writers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus.
According to an interview with SFX Magazine, director [Alan Taylor] laughed, "Joss came in to save our lives a couple of times. We had a major scene that was not working on the page at all in London, and he basically got airlifted in, like a SWAT team or something.
"He came down, rewrote the scene, and before he got back to his plane I sort of grabbed him and said, 'And this scene and this scene?' And he rewrote two other scenes that I thought had problems. Then finally we let go of him, he took off again, and we shot the scenes; and they were just much better and much lighter on their feet. Much more fun, much more surprising than what we had been trying to do.
"I can relate to guys who come out of the TV world, since that's where I come from. And being able to land and work and solve a problem [quickly]... I really was grateful."
He was also called in to do last minute rewrites on the first Captain America script. We know how that turned out.
So, it's safe to say Joss Whedon is an awesome writer. I guess this isn't a surprise since he's the grandson of the great television screenwriter John Whedon, the son of Tom Whedon, and his brothers Zack and Jed Whedon are also screenwriters.
Here's the question: Which is your favorite science fiction property Joss Whedon has written for and why?
The results of last week's poll - Which of These 17 Genre Movies Are You Looking Forward To In 2015? - is (coincidentally) Marvel's The Avengers: Age of Ultron! In second place is Star Wars: Episode VII followed by Batman vs. Superman.
