Comic-Con 2011: Joss Whedon talks 'The Avengers,' 'Cabin in the Woods' and the new 'Buffy' comic

Joss Whedon has been the guru of Comic-Con for nigh on a decade, but rarely has he arrived in San Diego with more geeky goodness piled onto his plate. Along with writing and directing The Avengers – Marvel Studios’ omnibus über-super-hero flick, due next May – Whedon is also working on the next “season” of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic book, and shepherding the long-delayed horror film he co-wrote and produced, The Cabin in the Woods, into theaters next April. But he still found time to swing by the studio at the Hard Rock Hotel, where he and I talked about how making The Avengers is like making a gigantic TV show, why the film skipped Comic-Con this year, and what his plans are for the new Buffy comic series. Check out our chat below:
