Joss Whedon Didn’t Like The Ending For Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back; Frustrated By Twilight


Joss Whedon, who just may be giving us the “Empire Strikes Back” version for his The Avengers 2, comments about what he actually didn’t like about the Star Wars movie considered by most to be the best of the franchise.

That’s not all as Whedon also makes his thoughts known on the insanely popular Twilight movies as well as the Vampire Diaries TV series.

Regarding Empire Strikes Back, what Whedon didn’t like about Episode V is the ending – in that in didn’t have one.

Whedon told EW:

Empire committed the cardinal sin of not actually ending. Which at the time I was appalled by and I still think it was a terrible idea.

Well, it’s not an ending. It’s a Come Back Next Week, or in three years. And that upsets me. I go to movies expecting to have a whole experience. If I want a movie that doesn’t end I’ll go to a French movie. That’s a betrayal of trust to me. A movie has to be complete within itself, it can’t just build off the first one or play variations.

And regarding Twilight and Vampire Diaries, Whedon says he did it first as well as better.

A small part of you is like: ‘Well, you know, I did that first. I liked that band before they were popular. The thing about Buffy for me is–on a show-by-show basis–are there female characters who are being empowered, who are driving the narrative? The Twilight thing and a lot of these franchise attempts coming out, everything rests on what this girl will do, but she’s completely passive, or not really knowing what the hell is going on. And that’s incredibly frustrating to me because a lot of what’s taking on the oeuvre of Buffy, is actually a reaction against it. Everything is there — except for the Buffy. A lot of things aimed at the younger kids is just Choosing Boyfriends: The Movie.

Joss Whedon’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. hits ABC on Tuesday September 24th; The Avengers 2 strikes back May 1, 2015.

Twilight’s Robert Pattinson Wants To Be In The News Star Wars


We’ve heard from just about every director you can imagine in regards to Disney’s new Star Wars movies, my guess is that now we’ll be hearing more from actors that want to play a role in the new trilogies.

With the last part in the Twilight series, Breaking Dawn Part 2, debuting this week, would Robert Pattinson like to join The Force?

“Oh, absolutely,” he tells The Washington Post about playing a role in Star Wars. “In a heartbeat.”

Of course Robert Pattinson is known for playing the vampire, Edward Cullen, in the billion dollar Stephenie Meyer adapted franchise, and seeing how it is said that a new generation will be continuing on with the Star Wars movies, would Robert Pattinson make a good future jedi

Or, perhaps, as he is no stranger to it — a member of the Dark Side.

X-Men’s Colossus, Daniel Cudmore, Tried Out For Superman In Man of Steel (2013) Movie


While Henry Cavill is set to take off next year along side Zack Snyder in the new Superman movie, Man of Steel, another actor tried out for the super role, an actor also known for playing a character made of hardened metal.

Daniel Cudmore, who played Peter Rasputin aka Colossus in the X-Men movies, tried out for the Superman role in the Man of Steel as well as the preceding movie, Superman Returns.

Cudmore tells Newsarama that he wasn’t really into the role for Superman Returns, but did give it a go for the Man of Steel.

I auditioned for the one with Brandon Routh, which was not the greatest audition because I left acting for a year to pursue some sports. It was one of these auditions where my agent was like, “Just please go.” I was not in the headspace for acting. I needed some time away and I think the audition was probably just absolutely terrible. Then I auditioned for Man of Steel that is coming out. Really, I wanted them to see a good audition. I wasn’t having these aspirations of being the lead character.

Cudmore not getting the iconic role paved the way for the likes of Brandon Routh and Henry Cavill, but that doesn’t mean Cudmore doesn’t get a well-known roll of his own.

The 6’6″ actor is set to play John-117 “Master Chief,” in the live-action web series, Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, as well as reprising as Felix in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 set to be released November 16th.


Stay tuned to Cosmic Book News as more on the Man Of Steel develops.

Man Of Steel flies into theaters June 14th, 2013 directed by Zack Snyder starring, Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel, Diane Lane as Martha “Ma” Kent, Kevin Costner as Jonat han “Pa” Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as Zod, and Russel Crowe as Jor-El.
