Joss Whedon to the Class of ’13: “You are all going to die”

Below is a transcript of the commencement address Joss Whedon gave at his Alma Mater:

Joss Whedon ’87 delivered the Wesleyan Commencement Address.

Joss Whedon ’87 delivered the Wesleyan Commencement Address on May 26: Commencement address—it’s going well, it’s going well. Thank you, Jeanine, for…making me do this. This is going to be great. This is going to be a good one. It’s gonna go really well. Two roads diverged in a wood, and… no. I’m not that lazy. I actually sat through many graduations. When I was siting where you guys were sitting, the speaker was Bill Cosby—funny man Bill Cosby, he was very funny and he was very brief, and I thanked him for that. He gave us a message that I really took with me, that a lot of us never forgot, about changing the world. He said, “you’re not going to change the world, so don’t try.” That was it. He didn’t buy that back at all. And then he complained about buying his daughter a car and we left. I remember thinking, “I think I can do better. I think I can be a little more inspiring than that.” And so, what I’d like to say to all of you is that you are all going to die. This is a good commencement speech because I’m figuring it’s only going to go up from here. It can only get better, so this is good. It can’t get more depressing. You have, in fact, already begun to die. You look great. Don’t get me wrong. And you are youth and beauty. You are at the physical peak. Your bodies have just gotten off the ski slope on the peak of growth, potential, and now comes the black diamond mogul run to the grave. And the weird thing is your body wants to die. On a cellular level, that’s what it wants. And that’s probably not what you want. I’m confronted by a great deal of grand and worthy ambition from this student body. You want to be a politician, a social worker. You want to be an artist. Your body’s ambition: Mulch. Your body wants to make some babies and then go in the ground and fertilize things. That’s it. And that seems like a bit of a contradiction. It doesn’t seem fair. For one thing, we’re telling you, “Go out into the world!” exactly when your body is saying, “Hey, let’s bring it down a notch. Let’s take it down.” Continue Reading

Joss Whedon Teases More Avengers 2 Details

Source: Yahoo! Movies Via ComingSoon.net
Yahoo! spoke with The Avengers writer/director Joss Whedon at the Iron Man 3 premiere last night and managed to get some good details about The Avengers 2 out of him. "I have finished a draft and I'm redoing it now. I think it's in really good shape. We're in a very good place," he said. When they asked him if he felt pressure to top the first film, he offered this response. "I try not to think of it as topping it. I try to think of this as its own movie. Sometime yeah, I feel pressure and by the way, Shane (Black) not helping, Iron Man 3 not helping, because I saw this and man he really got it right. But when you're in the story and you're dealing with these characters that you love, that everybody loves, when you've got the new characters sliding in next to them it's very exciting. Then I don't feel pressure, it's like I'm reading my favorite comic." New characters you say? Whedon offered a few more details about who these might be. Continue Reading

China’s growing importance to Hollywood: Tom Cruise, Joss Whedon, and other industry heavyweights weigh in

The next time the Avengers assemble on the big screen, don’t be surprised if you see them touch down at some point in China. Given the rapid, almost Hulk-like growth of the film market in that country over the past few years, Avengers director Joss Whedon is half-expecting to get a call any day now asking whether he can set part of the superhero sequel in a Chinese locale. “I’m working on the script right now, and if someone came to me and said, ‘We’re looking into doing a chunk of this in China’—well, I’d have to think about it,” Whedon says. “China is on my radar. It can’t not be at this point.” Continue Reading

The Impact of One Television Show

by PACMedia
BuffyOn March 10, 1997, the first episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired on the WB channel. I don’t remember what day it aired on because it changed to different nights throughout its television career. No matter the day, my mom, my brother, and I would sit in a room together to watch Buffy conquer vampires and other supernaturals while slaying those pesky homework assignments. I was in sixth grade at the time. My mom had moved my brother and I into her boyfriend’s house because we were forced to move out of our previous house. Long story short, my dad didn’t pay the monthly mortgage, so we had to live elsewhere. I was in a new house that was thirty minutes away from my private school. Junior high was turning out to be this horrible part of the education system where I didn’t get to play the playground with my friends anymore. It was now all work and no play because my friends were now busier and more importantly I couldn’t relate to my fellow peers. This is where BVS comes into play. I could relate to Buffy, Willow, and Xander’s butting heads with high school. I wasn’t liking Junior high too much. It seemed like it only to became worse each year. I could relate to being demeaned by my peers because I didn’t follow society’s standard or in Cordelia’s case, her standard. My school believed in a Christian based faith. It taught almost an hour of Bible every day. There was a definite standard to follow. I was far from following it. I wasn’t excited about who I liked or what boy band was trending. I was excited about Vampires and other dead things. I had a hole in my heart from many things and I wanted to fill it with something tangible. Buffy killed vampires. She won over evil. Just when we think she is done for, she surprises us. I wanted to be someone whose courage and passion surprised them when they least expected it.

Seeing forgiveness, friendship, and love in this show taught me the things my parents, teachers, & peers couldn’t or wouldn’t teach me. Buffy hugs

JOSS WHEDON DISCUSSES WHAT HIS THEORETICAL STAR WARS MOVIE WOULD BE LIKE, WORLD GOES BONKERS

Originally posted at The Mary Sue

If you say “Joss Whedon” and “Star Wars” together, people are going to freak out. Even if it’s something as simple as, “Joss Whedon watched Star Wars.” But in this case, the director went as far as to share his thoughts on what he’d actually do with the franchise were he given the reins. Well, that’s a horse of a different color… You probably know by now J.J. Abrams was the one eventually chosen to continue the Star Wars saga with Episode VII but a lot of names were thrown around before then including Whedon’s. You might have also heard Carrie Fisher “joking” she would be in the film and George Lucas sort of confirming all three original stars would be returning. Well if Whedon had his way, they wouldn’t be. In an interview interview with Digital Spy he said:
You know, I wouldn’t go back, I’d go forward.  I would want to create characters that would resonate the way that they did.  I mean not that I don’t want to see [the new movies], I would be excited to, but I also feel like I would want to explore a very different part of that universe.
And if there was a Han Solo solo film, would he have a hand in something that meant recasting the famous character? “That I would never want to do. Some things may not be rebooted,” he said, in his most serious voice.

Joss Whedon & the cast and crew of Much Ado About Nothing at SXSW

 
  I often do not allow myself to talk about Joss Whedon because, much to the chagrin of my friends - once I start I have a hard time stopping. So I think it best to let you hear it straight from the man himself and his actors...
   

A huge thank you to amandaonzeteo For recording this video so people who were not lucky enough to attend could see it!
