Much Ado About Nothing

  1. Interviews With Much Ado About Nothing Cast Go Horribly Awry [Video]

    From the makers of the acclaimed short film Eagles Are Turning People Into Horses!

    Did you go see Much Ado About Nothing yet? Yeah, I know, Shakespeare's not everybody's thing, but if you're a fan of Joss Whedon then you'll probably love seeing all your favorite actors hanging out with each other in a giant house full of alcohol. Even if you don't see it, you'll definitely appreciate the effort that Brian McElhaney and Nick Kocher of the comedy duo BriTANicK (who somehow managed to work their way into the cast despite not being in even one episode of Dollhouse) put into getting everyone together for a series of behind-the-scene "interviews." Expect to see them get cameo roles in Avengers 2 now, because Joss said so.

  2. Minneapolis Movie Theater Keeps Joss Whedon Humble With Deep Pull From His Resume

    Well, at least they didn't bring up Alien: Resurrection.

    Just a reminder that there is an alternate universe out there where those four episodes of Roseanne were the apogee of Joss Whedon's career.

  3. Nathan Fillion Reveals Why He Hasn’t Played a Marvel Superhero Yet

    Cautiously Optimistic

    It seems like we're not getting any more Firefly, but that doesn't mean we can't see Nathan Fillion and Joss Whedon team up again, does it? Nathan Fillion has been involved in multiple superhero projects in his time, from playing Captain Hammer in Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog to voicing DC's Green Lantern in various Justice League and Green Lantern cartoons. But given the many Big Damn Heroes Fillion has played, it's surprising he has never portrayed a Marvel Superhero, especially considering his friendship with Whedon.  It turns out, Fillion has thought about the prospect of a Marvel role, and recently answered an inquiry about it in an interview for Pixar's Monsters University.

  6. There’s Much Ado About Joss Whedon’s 2013 Schedule: S.H.I.E.L.D., Dr. Horrible, Avengers

    Excelsior!

    The Avengers sequel may not be in theaters until 2015 but that doesn't mean Joss Whedon isn't already working on it. Besides that, the director has a good deal on his plate including releasing Much Ado About Nothing to the masses this summer, launching S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC, and perhaps starting work on the follow-up to Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. How does he plan to do it all?

  7. Joss Whedon Won’t Have To Screen Much Ado About Nothing In His Backyard! Lionsgate To Distribute.

    And All Was Right With the World

    Frankly, I wouldn't put it past our pal Joss Whedon to premiere his Shakespeare film, Much Ado About Nothing, in his own backyard. We knew it wouldn't come to that of course, but he did film it all at his house while shooting The Avengers, and he's not a stranger to unusual distribution in tough times. Regardless, Roadside Attractions and Lionsgate have bought the North American rights to the film. All is well.

  9. All That Ado Over Footage From Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing Is Basically Nothing [Video]

    Misleading Headline of the Day

    Hey, did you hear that there was footage from Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing floating around the internet? Did you get all excited about it? Yeah, you can stop. There are maybe a few seconds of it in what is really just another video about The Avengers. Whedon talked about his career this weekend on CBS This Morning, and a tiny portion of Much Ado was shown, and then about six or seven minutes of Avengers footage that you've already seen. We'll meet you after the jump once you stop yawning. He talks about Buffy and her feminist origins, too.

  10. Joss Whedon Snuck One Of His Whedonverse Actors Into The Avengers

    Fangasm

    Joss Whedon is well known for re-using his favorite actors in multiple projects. We've seen crossover between Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Doctor Horrible, Dollhouse, and most recently, The Cabin in the Woods (plus lots more). But what we were really hoping for was one of those oft-used actors to wind up in Marvel's The Avengers. Well, it's happened. We'll narrow it down for you, this particular actor was on Buffy but Whedon has used the person elsewhere, too...

  11. Much Ado About Whedon

    Joss Whedon and I don’t necessarily mix well. That isn’t to say I dislike the man or the various creations he has been part of over the years. It’s merely an observation that while I overall enjoy his work, there have been times where, for me, he’s missed more than he’s hit. Like any other human being on this planet, he makes mistakes. Also like any other human being on this planet, everyone has their own opinion about art. That said, I’m a firm proponent of Firefly and all that the show entails. Nathan Fillion still has me watching Castle, though I generally loathe the way the show is paced. As someone who grew up with Toy Story, Whedon’s works have rarely been out of my life entirely, but I could never warm up to either Buffy or Angel. They never captured my rapt attention like they did for so many others, and there truly are so many others out there who loved it. There’s a certain section of people out there that praise everything Whedon and condemn all of those who dare question the simple fact that he is the best and has always been the best. To them, everything he touches is silver and gold. Maybe even platinum. There are also entire communities focused on following Whedon’s ripples in the world. For those of us who don’t connect our identity with Buffy or the like, however, there’s a much more even-keeled approach.

  12. You Can Thank Joss Whedon’s Wife For His Whedon-Cast Shakespeare Film

    This Exists... Because of A Lady

    We brought you details yesterday of the breaking news that Joss Whedon had somehow found the time to film an adaptation of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing even though he'd be occupied making The Avengers film for Marvel. We here at The Mary Sue suspected he was in possession of a Time Turner but it seems as though we have Whedon's generous wife to thank for his extra time. Read on for all the details, information from the cast and the first set photos!

  13. Joss Whedon Adapted A Whole Entire Much Ado About Nothing While Shooting The Avengers [UPDATED]

    Suddenly

    Some filmmakers shoot silly behind-the-scenes footage while they're making a blockbuster movie. Joss Whedon adapted a Shakespeare play into a feature film with a bunch of old friends while shooting The Avengers and announced it by having one of said friends -- Nathan Fillion -- link to it in a Tweet. And that is how Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing came to exist. Guys, this kind of thing isn't even supposed to be possible in this day and age, so Joss Whedon is a magician.

  14. Feast Your Ears on Catherine Tate and David Tennant Serenading Each Other

    Almost Totally Excellent

    There are few famous people we love better than we love Catherine Tate and David Tennant. This extends into practically everything they do, say, or touch. So the fact that they're currently doing a run of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing in London's West End and we have not had the pleasure of witnessing it makes us unspeakably sad. Sometimes things come along, however, that help to ease our pain. Like this: Audio of them being sassy to each other and singing a duet of "We Go Together." Even if you've heard it before, we consider it a perfect way to end the day. The best part is that you can imagine them in this song as practically any pair they've played together--Donna and the Doctor, Beatrice and Benedick, or just the classic Catherine and David.
