Joss Whedon Quote of the Week from Greg Bover

February 14, 2015

The one thing a creator can bring to the table when everybody else has all the money and power, is centeredness and the ability to walk away. Never sit at a table you can’t walk away from.

Joseph H. “Joss” Whedon (1964-    )

The grandson, son and brother of screenwriters, Whedon is perhaps best known as the creator of the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, although he also co-wrote Toy Story, and is the co-founder of the production companies Bellwether and Mutant Enemy. He wrote and directed The Avengers, the third highest grossing film of all time. Through his collaborations with Marvel Comics and Marvel Studios he created several series of graphic novels and sequential films sharing a common “universe” and themes centering on feminism, anti-authoritarianism, existentialism, and the importance of community. Winner of the Emmy and Saturn Awards, Whedon created the sci-fi cult-classic Firefly series and its follow-on movie Serenity.
