We’re nearing the end of the TV season, which is always the saddest time of the year. This week, though, the big news is movie-related. Avengers opens on Friday, and I am excited. Granted, I kind of feel like six superheroes in one movie (four of whom have supported their own movie or movies) might be a little overwhelming to non-nerds. But since I’m not one of those people, I’m not terribly worried about it. I’ve also got a little bit of trepidation, given my history with Joss Whedon, but I think he might be better working with other people’s characters. You can’t get away with self-indulgence when you’re making a big franchise movie. Or you shouldn’t, at least. More on this story as it develops.
