It feels like forever and a day we’ve been dividing ships of one dystopian and/or supernatural couple or another, but certainly Joss Whedon deserves credit for Buffy the Vampire Slayer cementing the trend. Over a decade later, fans are still torn over which en-souled vampire marks Buffy’s one true love, but Joss Whedon has formally made his choice. Sound the alarm, and get out your stakes.

Joss Whedon may have disappeared from social media (for a time), but the Avengers director and TV icon is back in more ways than one. Not only is Whedon back on Twitter, but he’s working on a new horror film set during World War II, and — despite his self-admitted exhaustion from working with Marvel — he’s ready to direct another big franchise film. Ideally, he wants to make one of those big Star Wars movies.

Joss Whedon is open about his politics, never one to shy away from letting us all know whom he supports for this upcoming election. Just last week, he and a few of his Avenger pals posted a PSA to launch his new organization Save the Day, urging Americans to make sure they’re registered to vote. On Friday, Whedon also hosted a Facebook Live chat to promote Save the Day, in which he answered some fan questions, including which of the Avengers he’d pick to run the country.

Save the Day
Joss Whedon quit Twitter back in 2015 after he decided that the social media platform’s pervasive negativity, anger, and outright hatred was too toxic to endure. (Where could he possibly get that idea from?) But this morning, like a phoenix or vampire slayer rising from the ashes, Whedon returned to Twitter with a new handle, and a new project: A get-out-the-vote campaign called Save the Day.

DC and The CW have a habit of granting practical wishes of fans and reporters, to the point that fan-fervor brought Constantine’s Arrow appearance, the Flash-Supergirl crossover and more, most recently cementing a musical crossover for the latter two in 2017. Recent rumors have suggested that Joss Whedon himself might direct the two-part musical extravaganza, with Neil Patrick Harris to boot, but is there any truth to them?

Since stepping away from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Joss Whedon has been pretty upfront about how anxious and exhausted the entire experience left him. Even as recently as a few weeks ago, Whedon was still coming to terms with the failure he felt after Avengers: Age of Ultron opened to backlash from fans.
