JOSS WHEDON SAID WHAT?
Okay, first off, this site is turning into a Joss Whedon fansite as of late and damn it, I won't have it!
On the other hand, Whedon keeps making the news, so what can I do?
Joss was recently interviewed by Jonathan Bernstein at The Guardian when this exchange took place,
I offer the opinion that Marvel's current wave of success comes from the fact that it concentrates on satisfying the segment of the audience previously ignored by superhero movies: the loyal, hardcore comic-book fans. Whedon could not disagree more. "They are the last people you need to worry about. I don't really think about the fans."
Okay, so who does he play to? In the very next sentence he says,
"I think about what I want because I'm the guy who's taking the comic book he read as a kid and turning it into a movie that I want to see as much as I want people to see it."
So the key to Joss Whedon's success is contradictory? Yes, but no, but on the other hand... read The Guardian article to discover how Joss pulls off going in opposite directions at the same time in order to deliver ensemble cast superhero movies that work for comic fans as well as n00bz.

THE CABIN IN THE WOODS IS BASED UPON AN ORIGINAL IDEA? SERIOUSLY?
It's nothing new in Hollywood. If any movie is successful, the filmmakers are going to be sued by someone claiming that it was based on their story, movies, whatever.
Sometimes these lawsuits are legitimate and major studios have knowingly stole from a writer, thereby shaving the expense of $50,000 off their $50 million movie.
Or you know, a week of craft services. Such business acumen among the major studios is legendary, and sometimes the studios lose.
However, most of these suits are frauds.
Right now Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard are being sued for their parody, THE CABIN IN THE WOODS.
