This report that Joss Whedon has provided rewrites for a few scenes in THOR: THE DARK WORLD has appeared on a number of sites.
I think this is interesting because it shows the care in which the Marvel Universe brand is being crafted for film and that Joss Whedon is seen as the maestro of said brand. Given the success of THE AVENGERS it is hard to argue that it should be otherwise. The trust that has been placed in Whedon’s film adaptation of the Marvel Comics characters seems quite well placed to me.
With the somewhat controversial announcement that Ben Affleck will be the new Batman, it will be intriguing to see how D.C. Comics manages its competing brand of comic book characters going forward.
