Much Ado About Nothing

Cautiously Optimistic

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

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.


We Have Done the Impossible and That Makes Us Mighty

Here’s Your Trailer for Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing Featuring All of His Friends

In case you’ve forgotten in the interim, this is the Shakespearean comedy that Joss Whedon filmed in his backyard with some buddies during a his brief summer vacation from filming The Avengers. In honor of the occasion, Whedon joined twitter.

Sort of.

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

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? 


And All Was Right With the World

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

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.

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

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.



Joss Whedon Snuck One Of His Whedonverse Actors Into The Avengers

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…

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

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! 



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

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.
