The Avengers
Lots of little Marvel bits and bobs have emerged from the nerd Easter basket over the past day or two, so we've rounded them all up in one convenient spot for your edification. This is all pretty minor stuff, but nonetheless, Marvel-heads will probably want to give it a whirl.

You might not remember, or perhaps you deleted it from your memory, but circa Marvel's campaign for "Iron Man 2," they dropped a hilariously terrible international poster that basically was a mashup of all the things in the movie. Well, three years on, they haven't deviated from the playbook as a new one-sheet has arrived, and once again, a lowly intern (probably) has cut and pasted a bunch of stuff together.

Yesterday we talked about the success of the kickstarter campaign for the “Veronica Mars” movie and whether or not it’s more of a curse than a blessing. As of now, the campaign has more than surpassed its $2 million goal, even crossing the $3 million mark. What we did not really talk about was what the success could mean for other potential projects. On that note, Buzzfeed managed to talk to filmmaker Joss Whedon regarding his feelings on the matter and what the “Veronica Mars” Kickstarter campaign could do for another “Firefly” movie.

With "The Avengers" earning $1 billion and change, Joss Whedon has unofficially become the guru of how to take a franchise property, and turn it into a mega smash hit that does the rare trifecta of pleasing fanboys, audiences and critics all at once. And so course, he gets asked about what he would do given the chance the helm to "Star Wars: Episode 7," a gig he revealed earlier this year is certainly something he would have loved to take on. And the folks at Disney (who own Marvel, fyi) might not like to hear what he has to say.

Man, for a property and movie of which there are currently "no plans," it seems folks just can't stop talking about the prospect and possibility of a "Hulk" film and what exactly it should be. While rumors have been flying about about a possible "Planet Hulk" and "World War Hulk" based movie, current Marvel godfather Joss Whedon has called them nonsense and as he reveals in a longer statement today, getting Bruce Banner right on the big screen is a challenge.

Yes, Joss Whedon -- who made $1 billion and change for Marvel simply by making some spandex heroes fly around for a couple of hours -- has made a movie based on a Shakespeare play. In black and white. In his backyard. And on a budget that would barely feed the cast and crew of "The Avengers" for a single day. But you know what else? It actually looks pretty good.

After Joss Whedon's response that rumors about a "Hulk" standalone movie were "nonsense," and other nerd sites declared chatter that a Marvel effort based on Planet Hulk was 1000% inaccurate, Mark Ruffalo has used the almighty power of Twitter to finally weigh in on Hulk-gate. Yeah, don't hold your breath for a green monster smashing stuff up on screen anytime soon.

Making a film based off Marvel's The Incredible Hulk character isn't impossible. The character has appeared on screen three times now, in three different iterations, more than any other major Marvel character (played, of course by Eric Bana, Edward Norton and Mark Ruffalo). But they're never quite great, nor as financially successful as the studios hope. With fans crowning the Joss Whedon, "The Avengers" version of the green monster the most successful, Marvel's been seriously considering a third solo film (and rumors say that film could borrow from the Planet Hulk storyline).

Between the recent Television Critics Association winter press tour and the 18th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards, there's been a lot of news trickling in about related Joss Whedon projects like "The Avengers 2," ABC's would-be "S.H.I.E.L.D." TV show, and more. Perhaps most interesting is Whedon recently admitting that he would have loved to direct "Star Wars: Episode VII" and that he's bummed there's no way his busy schedule would allow it.

Though he may be the toast of Hollywood now, there was a time when Joss Whedon’s projects were met by shrugs or outright disdain from studios. In 2002, Whedon’s space-western series “Firefly” was cancelled by Fox with only 2 episodes left to air. In the years since, the cult show has developed a large following thanks to its home video success, which in turn led to the release of “Serenity,” which takes place after events of the series. And last year saw a 10th anniversary reunion show, “Firefly: Browncoats Unite,” air on the Science Channel. Now, three deleted scenes from the series that appeared in 'Browncoats Unite' have found their way online.
