Joss Whedon is still in his writing hey day. Why not keep the heat on while he has influential power to answer to it?
I'm sorry, but as big of a Whedon fan as I am, I can't let this go unchallenged. All Joss has these days are a couple of comic book serieses with modest sales and a TV series I expect won't run much longer than Firefly
did (based on all the "behind-the-scenes" crap that's happened).
To Hollywood, Whendon is as dead as Glen Larson is now, or Gene Rodenberry was after Trek went off the air. It's about what you did yesterday
, not 10 years ago.
