[Famous Birthday (Tomorrow): Joss Whedon -- Wish List: Comic Books: (as) Writer] Just a quick, simple list of comic books (character, solo titles and teams / organizations) that I would like to see Joss write for as either head writer for the run of issues, most or all of the title, or guest write some issues of. (Plus, even, see adaptations for (and guest work on) film and/or TV, live action (like the DC TV shows on TheCW by Berlanti Productions --Including "iZombie" and "Lucifer", Non-DC TV: "Preacher", "The Walking Dead") or animation (namely DCAU (Timm-Dini-verse + straight-to-DVD/Blu-ray features) and the Marvel / Disney XD / Man of Action series --creators of such franchises as "Ben 10" and "Generator Rex" series) of this material wouldn't hurt either! --Note: Directing, Writing, Producing, Showrunning (--aside from / know he's busy with "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."--), Consulting, Acting / Cameo / Voice, more --more, the works.) It would be interesting if Whedon worked on the "Wonder Woman" comics (and/or adaptations like for DCAU; as in more animated features and/or TV series), since his (live action) film that he worked on prior to the first "Avengers" film fell through with Warner Bros. Studios (and plus, the failed David E. Kelley TV series that (--Joss wasn't involved in that--) featured Adrienne Palicki in the title role. --Funny that she did that prior to appearing on some episodes of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.").
