Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth and other stars of the hit superhero extravaganza, The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon, are telling fans everywhere what small-screen devotees of Whedon shows like Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dollhouse, Angel and Dr.
It was just over a month ago that Avengers director Joss Whedon, 48, revealed that he would create, write and (probably) direct new television pilot S.H.I.E.L.D., which was purchased by ABC, but the hardworking writer and director already has his character sketches worked out for the television project about the top-secret peacekeeping organization.
Now that Marvel's The Avengers has taken the summer box office by storm, network television, which once toyed with Avengers writer and director Joss Whedon's projects, is hoping to get in on the action.
Everyone knows that Mark Ruffalo lends his face to the CGI-enhanced Hulk in Marvel's multi-hero action movie, The Avengers, out in theaters today. Now, meet the man who lends his body: Steve Romm, a bouncer and stripper from Long Island who is the model for the mean, green, muscular machine.
