Joss Whedon Not Showrunner On SHIELD Show, Calls It “Autonomous”

Here’s some more shading to the jaw-dropper of a deal between Joss Whedon and Marvel that will see him writing and directing The Avengers 2 and lending an eye to the rest of their cinematic, and now televisual, universe.

Joss Whedon spoke to Variety at a screening of Sleepwalk With Me,* and they’ve come away with scant quotes. On their site, they manage:

[Whedon] said the storyline for the proposed series will be largely “autonomous” from the Avengers sequel feature that is also in the works.

And writer Cynthia Littleton managed these tweets:

 

And, answering my question in respect of Whedon being able to keep working outside of the Marvel parameters while his deal is ongoing, Littleton also tweets:

 

Having Whedon on hand is going to be good for Marvel. It’s also nice to see he won’t be spreading himself too thinly. He’s definitely got a good pair of showrunners there – he’ll always have their ear, they’ll always have his.

Now we just have to see if the series actually gets commissioned. Seems like a no-brainer, but we’ll see…

*Maybe he was just speaking on stage during a Q&A. They don’t make it entirely clear.
