While Avengers: Age of Ultron divided us at FTN, with some thinking it was great and others thinking it was disappointing – I’m in the second camp, believing it was full of unresolved plot points and was rushed to the point of being a mess in places – we were all looking forward to the oft rumoured Director’s Cut from Joss Whedon…

And maybe we shouldn’t hold our breath.

Speaking at a panel at Nerd HQ, Whedon seems to have shot down the Director’s Cut rumours once and for all: “The first time I ever heard a re-mix, I was 13 and I was listening to the radio. I heard a song that had been re-mixed and it freaked me out so much that I turned off the radio and never listened to it since, literally. That is an actual truth. I felt like, “Wait, that was the song. You can’t do that.” Our entire culture consists of doing exactly that, but I’m not for it. If I tell a story, I want that to be the story I told.”

So, this may well be the final word on tho matter, from the man himself. But, while we love Joss Whedon a lot, we reckon he’s wrong on this one.

What do you guys think?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
