I had heard the cyborg character ("Vision," I think?) rumor from a friend, but had not heard about the cellist girlfriend.

Yeah, I just... I mean, yes, if Whedon is writing the script, you can pretty much expect Tragical Important Character Death... but otoh, not only do we have evidence that Nick Fury is not always 100% truthy, this is a universe where Tony Stark built the original suit in a cave from scraps which were left over after Yeltsin got done with major chest surgery on him... I don't think somebody being technically declared dead by the EMTs at one point would necc. mean they did not then give him a shot to the heart.

EMTs: Sir, can we do it now?
Fury: Wait for it... have to make a call first!

At the beginning of the movie, Life Model Decoys were referenced, so the betting is good that Son of Coul will rise again because it was his evil twin LMD that took the hit.

Not only that, but the actor is signed for Iron Man 3, which is an even surer sign of life.

Eh, just give him a Magic Defibrillator, he'll be fine ;)

Sometimes I think Joss Whedon reads EVERY comment ever made about him. Including about his habit of killing off characters. Because then he does things like have Fury REFERENCE it.... and also


I went in unspoiled for the original theatrical release, having been prepped only by seeing Joss' previous work, including Firefly thanks to SciFi Channel.

After Book died, I figured "oh, there's our character death! I'll miss 'im. Oh well..."

Then when Wash died I was like "WUT. WUT. WUT JUST HAPPENED I DON'T EVEN OMG HE'S GOING TO KILL THEM ALL ISN'T HE??? DDDDD: OMGOMGOGOGMGOMGFFFFFFUUUUU" And I forgot to analyze for like, the entire rest of the movie. I mean, River's so obviously a final girl, and Mal needed to survive because of the meaning of each of their stories... in hindsight, but I seriously thought every character was going to die for like, 20 minutes straight and it was the best thing ever. First time a movie surprised me enough to throw my forebrain out the window ;)


Also, I'm almost completely convinced that Priya's wonderfully rich story arc (and our exposure to the fantastic Dichen Lachman!) on Dollhouse came about in part because people poked him a lot about not casting any Asians in Firefly.

So, yeah, we need to keep calling him on his tropes and other "oopsies". Because the more self-aware he is and the more you push the man (see: budget of Dr. Horrible), the better stuff you apparently get. ;)

umm, hi your icon is awesome.

My mantra going into this movie was "they can't kill pepper or tony because of iron man 3 *repeat* and i saw this at the drive-in (luckily) and when Coulson died i was literally screaming "DAMN YOU JOSS WHEDON! YOU DID IT AGAIN! I THOUGHT WE WERE SAAAFE!!!!"

yes, that IS what he does for sure! my thought when i found out he was directing: "who's he gonna kill?"

killing was in Serenity really makes you think that maybe no one is getting out of this movie alive. but yes it was one of the saddest deaths in my movie watching history (well saddest of a person-if it is an animal that is a whole other list).

after Yeltsin got done with major chest surgery on him

You mean Yinsen, but the idea of Boris Yeltsin being stuck in a cave with Tony Stark is the most hilarious thing of the last ten minutes.

*facepalm* Yes... yes, I do. Thanks!

(and, you are completely correct that "The Cavetastic Adventures of Yeltsin and Stark" would be awesome. They would totally still escape, but it would involve a lot more booze, possibly as a propulsion system)

Yeltsin: Why is the vodka always gone?
