In addition to answer the obligatory Firefly question, Whedon also answered some other interesting questions, including one about the drama (or lack thereof) regarding the comic book character Quicksilver being in both Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past for Fox and Whedon’s The Avengers 2 for Marvel and Disney, and one that revealed his desire to jump into the world of Batman.

Speaking on Firefly, Whedon said:
“Right now I’m happy to say everybody is working doing good jobs. There’s a real fear of ‘The Monkey’s Paw,’ you know? You bring it back to life and it isn’t the same. Even if it’s GREAT and it isn’t the same. I’m dying to get on a ship with those guys again, but I’m also doing yet another goddamn huge ensemble movie [‘The Avengers 2’]. Why can’t I do a movie about just one guy? So right now I can’t even access that part of my brain. If all the planets align that would be great, but I’m not going to do what I did the first time and move heaven and earth to make it happen.”
When asked about Quicksilver and whether the character would still appear in The Avengers 2now that we know the character would also be in Days of Future Past, he had this to say:
“And so continues the Q and not-A”¦ That’s not something I can really talk about, but Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are going to be in the movie and they’re going to be AWESOME.”
And if he could do any Marvel character, Whedon went outside the lines a bit, and then dropped a little Whedonhumor on the “do” part of the question:
“If I could get my hands on absolutely anybody it would be Batman. (audience applause) He’s a Marvel character in the DC universe. And if I could ‘do’ any, probably Thor, because face it, those arms”¦ (laughs)”
Whedon also talked about some other things, including his thoughts on video games and video game movies, doing stuff with more spaceships, that now legendary Patton Oswalt Star Wars filibuster, and, surprisingly enough, the ballet he wants to make.
