Joss Whedon wants more female superheroes in the next Avengers
— Posted by Ryan
“Oh my God TMB, stop talking about The Avengers!” Haha, some of you may feel like this but honestly…who can shut up about this movie? In my defense, this post is in regards to the sequel and what additions to the team that Whedon wants to see. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Whedon leads us to believe that he wants some female additions to the team.
So who could the female heroes be? Scarlet Witch? Ms. Marvel? Wasp? I would like to see more female additions to the team. I think it is the studios most of the time that disagree with having the female heroes because they have the basic “playground mentality” that a boy is always stronger than a girl. Whedon has shown us that this is not the case, Black Widow kicked some ass! He also worked on a TV series centered around another female badass that you may have heard of called Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which I still feel is underrated. I hope we can see some new additions, I’m personally rooting for Ms. Marvel.

When dissecting a film, he focuses on all elements of film-making including some fan/cult factors. He believes that character development is the foundation of a good film and usually starts his analysis of a film from there moving forward. His writing style may be influenced by his background of narrative and argumentative studies in the subject, but he tends to enjoy a more conversational style to better interact with the readers, unlike some other pretentious and pompous writers.
