Joss Whedon Endorses Mitt Romney As The Man To Bring About The Zombie Apocalypse

It’s pretty much a given these days that anybody with (real or imagined) clout in Hollywood tends to use it to voice their political opinions -- just google “celebrity presidential endorsements” -- but few actually use their talents to ensure their message spreads to the widest possible audience. Enter geek hero Joss Whedon.

The “Avengers” helmer has released a tongue-in-cheek pro-Mitt Romney video just in time for the US presidential election. Waxing on the probability of a zombie apocalypse under a Romney presidency, Whedon showcases the same humor that made the superhero-team-up film such a colossal hit.

It’s no secret that Whedon is worshipped by the internet-nerd audience at-large (just look at the reactions to negative “Avengers” reviews), but even so, there’s no denying that the writer-director is adept at actually writing sharp and funny dialogue, and he knows just how to create viral-ready content for the internet, just look at his successful web series “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.”

This is likely the smallest project he’ll be working on for a long time as he’s now Marvel’s architect for Phase 2 of sprawling cinematic (and soon-to-be television) universe, with TV spin-off "S.H.I.E.L.D" gearing up for a pilot shoot, and "The Avengers 2" on track for a May 2015 release. Check out the video below, and remember to vote next week. Especially if you live in Ohio.

    Yawn. No one really cares what Joss Whedon thinks about politics.

  • Connor | October 31, 2012 7:13 AMReply

    Its ok Joss. You created Buffy. She'll stop Romney.

    Once again, the next US presidential election will be fixed. Mitt Romney will be elected even though Barack Obama would have received more votes in the presidential election. The political assassination will be perpetrated by Bush hiding behind Crossroads GPS, the most influential group of Neocons.

    The Neocons will have Mitt Romney elected to first use him and then let him fall easy prey. All blames and responsibilities will fall on the new Mormon president for the events already planned.

    The new World War of Religion is already a done deal behind the backs of all people to bring chaos and poverty and to favor in the end the rise of one New World Order.

    Once revolutions will have occurred all over the World they soon need to be coordinated.

    Worldwide Referendum broadcasted Live simultaneously on large screens in the squares of each Country could answer specific questions selected to decide what type of Democracy will exist in a new Humankind.

    The platform of an alternative to the Zionist Plan must focus on the solution of one Human dilemma which is at its root: the conflict between Equality and Individualism.

    The Last Revolution will also require a leap in our thinking and a new way to view ourselves.

    Wavevolution is a new discovery that should soon become public all over the World to reveal the Creation, awaken one new global awareness and form a new platform for Equality.

    From the start it should be clear why we would want to live with Respect and also clear what is the alternative. Equality or Slavery are the only two roads.

    The strongest opposition for Equality will come from that concept of Israel which is built around Individualism and one “chosen people”.

    The Dictator of one New World Order will soon become one reality unless there will be a new movement coordinated in each Country and operated with strategic timing.

    The next US president will start his new job on January 21 2013.
    The new Israeli election instead will be on January 22 2013.
    These two dates are overlapped in preparation for War. After the US elections and before those in Israel it will be the best time for the birth of one single Front to counter the Zionist Plan

    Do we really need more celebrities with their cheeky and obvious endorsements for Obama?

  • Leni | October 29, 2012 12:54 PMReply

    Funny. I like him.

  • LittleMormonChubby | October 29, 2012 10:25 AMReply

    Whedon is certainly funny, but Randy Newman's "I'm dreaming of a white President" set the standard for ridicule of whiney, paranoid, pathetic white conservatives. Of course, and as always, with white conservatives, the comedy and satire are built-in.

    I see there are people posting here without a sense of humor. You see, when you have all the toys, you just can't let up for a minute . . .

    I love it when people assume all rich people are the same. As if a rich guy like Joss Whedon is as greedy and proven unscrupulous as Mitt Romney. I guess people like Neuroguy would rather their taxes go to making the wealthy wealthier rather than to insurance programs for those of us who don't happen to be so lucky. Whatever.

  • neuroguy | October 29, 2012 9:47 AMReply

    He should stick to Science Fiction and Super Heroes as clearly his grip on reality is tenuous at best. The irony is that this thinly veiled passive aggressive intellectually myopic rant was delievered by a true 1%-er that would rather use his clout to force a working stiff like me to pay more in taxes to pay for more failed welfare programs than give a single penny of his multi-millions to help a single person. Typical limousine liberal.

  • Chick-Fil-A-BOOOOM | October 29, 2012 10:36 AM

    What? You don't like limousines and Cayman Islands bank accounts? Are you jealous because Joss makes more money in an hour than you do all day? You're a complete failure as a fully versed Republican capitalist, now aren't you? The big business cronies you Republicans elect don't like that kind of talk. So stop ranting about your pathetic payroll problems - as though you're the only person in America struggling - and try working harder instead of ranting like a stereotypical white conservative who has lost his 'pasty white privileges.'

  • J. James | October 29, 2012 10:06 AM

    Actually, the irony is that you seem to think that conservatives give a rat's ass about working stiffs like you. Governor Romney keeps saying that he knows how to manage a budget because of his business experience. Granted, he has to say that since he mangled the budget in MA. He actually did manage the budget of his companies by cutting expenses, and he did that by exporting US jobs to the Chinese. Given that most Americans are opposed to borrowing money from China, exporting our government to them is something that we've typically frowned upon. The Romney 5 point plan has more fantasy elements (and more continuity errors) in it than anything Whedon's ever dreamed up.

    On the plus side, under the Romney administration, we will greatly increase our production of warships, which will be of great value in the many land-based military operations in which we are currently entangled.

    Neurologyy-I think I love you.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa! You mean a Hollywood celebrity is a LIBERAL?! Wow, Whedon must feel pretty alone amongst his peers.

  • Zack | October 29, 2012 11:21 AM

    Oooh, you made fun of Madonna. I bet your edgy, sardonic humor takes the 1980s by storm.

  • Brian | October 29, 2012 10:29 AM

    I'm sure he is in good hands with Madona.
