Whedon

Writer / Director / Producer

With his ABC Marvel series “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” concluding with next year’s seventh season, the ever-prolific Whedon has another superhero series to fill the gap — HBO’s “The Nevers,” about a gang of women in Victorian England who acquire extraordinary abilities. This adds to an already impressive superhero résumé that includes writing Marvel movies “The Avengers” and “The Avengers: Age of Ultron.” A third-generation TV scribe, he began his career with as a staffer on the series “Roseanne” and went on to earn an Oscar nomination for co-writing “Toy Story” (1995), before putting himself on the pop-culture map by turning a marginally successful movie he scripted, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” (1992), into a seven-season series — and birthing the “Buffyverse” for its merchandise and devotees.
