Whedon

Writer / Director / Producer

An extraordinarily successful creative with major name recognition, Whedon moved from cult faves to full-on hits. Thanks to his subversive, timely and groundbreaking “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” as well as its spinoff “Angel” and the 2005 movie “Serenity,” he was a well-established television visionary when he was tapped to write and direct “The Avengers,” which gave Marvel its first billion-dollar release and proved its shared-universe ambitions had legs. After “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Whedon jumped to DC to finish “Justice League” while forging ahead on upcoming TV titles including HBO’s fantastical, female-led “The Nevers” and a “Buffy” reboot at Fox 21. He scored an Oscar nod for his “Toy Story” screenplay in 1996.
