When Joss Whedon abruptly quit Twitter the other day, he did so without giving a reason, leaving many to speculate why he ditched the service. It didn’t take long for a photo to start circulating, in which many angry tweets directed at him were placed around his final tweet, suggesting that the reason was obvious: he couldn’t deal with all the people accusing him of being a misogynist. Whedon has finally spoken out about why he left the service, and no, it had nothing to do with those tweets at all.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is the eleventh film in Marvel Studios’ ongoing quest to dominate your disposable income for the rest of your moviegoing life, the biggest, loudest and most expensive chapter yet in what is quickly becoming a triumph of Hollywood marketing and corporate one-upmanship. But it is also, somehow, totally, the work of writer/director Joss Whedon, whose clear voice, honed over decades spent working in film and television, rings through all of the noise. While The Avengers was directed by Whedon, his messier, crazier sequel is truly, at its heart, a Joss Whedon Film.

Marvel / Netflix
Once Marvel acquired the rights to Daredevil, it was unclear just what the studio was planning on doing with the character, whose last on-screen iteration didn’t work out so great. The solution: a partnership with Netflix for a new series, which — along with a handful of others — will lead into the epic Defenders series. With the help of Drew Goddard and Steven DeKnight, Daredevil has been a big success for both Marvel and Netflix, but there was one person who would have rather seen the crime-fighting hero back on the big screen.

Joss Whedon Says Marvel Studios Was Pissed When ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Was Announced

One of the main reasons so many people have taken to the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the interconnectedness of it all. At the same time, the attention to continuity and building a new superhero canon has wreaked no small amount of havoc on the creative end, where producers and writers and directors have all butted heads in various ways. The latest bit of weirdness comes via the increasingly honest Joss Whedon, who hasn’t been shy about his friction with Marvel Studios while he’s been promoting Avengers: Age of Ultron. According to Whedon, Marvel Studios wasn't very happy with the decision to make a TV show starring a character (Agent Coulson) they had just killed off in the movies.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has performed an impressive amount of legwork setting up The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but for many a Marvel fan, it always comes back to Coulson standing side-by-side with his fellow Avengers. That reunion may yet take awhile, as Joss Whedon apparently still considers Phil Coulson dead, as of the Age of Ultron.

There’s a lot to like about Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the coolest thing about it is the way it reclaims the comic book part of the phrase “comic-book movie.” Rather than using these characters to do something “edgy” or “adult” or “important,” or sanding down their quirkier edges to appeal to as broad and mainstream an audience as possible, Age of Ultron doubles down on its source material’s geeky origins.
